A remake of Avril Lavigne’s 2002 debut smash “Complicated” is making the rounds on social media.
“Liquidated” by Twitter user lil bubble features lyrics about Arthur Hayes, CEO of crypto derivatives exchange BitMEX, and captures Bitcoin’s legendary swings and pump and dumps.
Chill out, whatcha selling for? 10k? We’ve been here before
And if you would only let it climb, we’d be fine
I like you more when you pump
When you drive the prices up
But then as soon as I open my long
Somebody else, big market sells
I’m watching my stops, the price just drops
I thought you were cool, you looked like a bull to me
Tell me, why’d you have to go and make me get liquidated?
I see the way you’re dumping bags on everyone else you manipulated
The price like this, it will pump and then dump
The trend breaks, and you take what I bet
And you turn it into insurance fund
And hope that Arthur had a nice vacation
Oh, oh, oh
Hayes is waiting for the follow-up track, once Bitcoin is back on top, presumably heading toward his recent price prediction.
Keep coming with these hits. I can’t wait for the ballad you produce once #bitcoin retraces. https://t.co/KFczgEimbA
