Berlin’s iconic Fernsehturm (or Television Tower) was illuminated with a giant Bitcoin logo on Saturday, attracting a lot of attention from the city’s residents. The tower stands at 368m tall in the Marien quarter of the city, close to the popular Alexanderplatz square. It was opened in 1969 by the government of East Germany as a symbol of Communist power, and it remains a significant landmark in the city.
The Bitcoin logo was projected onto the tower, and it wasn’t the only iconic monument to be decorated in ₿. It is unclear who the individual or the group behind the project is, however, one Twitter user seems to have inside knowledge about this series of BTC promotions around Berlin. Tilo Neumann shared a video of the logo projected on the tower, inviting people to come to Alexanderplatz on January 21, saying that it may get media attention.
When asked why the Bitcoin logo was being projected on the tower, Neumann replied that this was an attempt to draw attention to Bitcoin and its potential to transform the financial future of people. He argued that some people choose to sit on the streets and stick to that, but he and his group have decided to take a different route and use the power of Bitcoin to make a statement.
The projection of the Bitcoin logo on the Fernsehturm was a powerful statement about the potential of cryptocurrency in Berlin and beyond. It was a reminder that Bitcoin can be a powerful tool for financial inclusion and autonomy, and it is an exciting sign of what is to come in the future.
