A new billboard in Toronto, Canada reads: “FOMO is a MOFO.” Without delving into the potential emotional traumas of trading cryptocurrencies on cryptocurrency exchanges, this statement is fitting given the recent day’s cryptocurrency trading performance. FOMO stands for Fear Of Missing Out while MOFO stands for (children cover your ears) motherfucker. The billboard was spotted by Redditors after going live.

Another set of TV ads, which aired during the NHL playoffs highlight the sketchy nature of buying cryptocurrency from not-an-exchange. One such “crypto dealer” says simply, with a giant grin on his face:
“What color do you want your lambo?”
With ads like this, can we say that cryptocurrency has gone mainstream and everyone has FOMO?
In the past, BitPay has sponsored an American college bowl – renaming it the Bitcoin Bowl. While such bold attempts to promote Bitcoin don’t quite happen the same way anymore – it’s hard to say that the extraordinary effort back then, while not necessarily appreciated then, didn’t lead to a world where it’s frankly not that weird that a cryptocurrency exchange has taken out a prime time TV commercial. Whether more than half the people seeing the commercial can describe what digital currency is – or express actionable interest in trading it with a professional exchange as opposed to fictional lambo promisers – remains to be seen.
From within the bubble – It sure looks like cryptocurrency is mainstream now, doesn’t it! Welcome to the future.
