A giant, inflatable rat appeared in front of Federal Reserve of NY on Wall Street, according to Reddit post.
It’s said that rat was created by Nelson Saiers, who is ex-hedge fund manager.
In an interview with Coindesk, Saiers said that the idea was to show that bitcoin as poison may be good:
“Warren Buffett called bitcoin ‘rat poison squared’ but if the Fed’s a rat, then maybe rat poison is a good thing.”
It’s not the first time, when rats appear on Wall Street as a protest symbol. The first "trade union rat" appeared in New York in 1991, the heyday of the movement occurred in the years 2001-2003.
Earlier this year, the head of U.S. Federal Reserve Jerome Powell made a number of critical statements against bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. In particular, he noted that cryptocurrencies "are great" for money laundering.
