Yesterday, at the TNW Conference 2018, Tim Draper – a venture capitalist managing over $5 billion in assets, who believes Bitcoin will rise to $250,000 by 2022 – started singing what will probably be known as the Bitcoin anthem or rap. At first, he was singing, and then he broke down into a rap in an attempt to rhyme.

Here is our approximation of the words Draper used: “Nakamoto made a token, perfecto, no friction,Cross-border, decentralized,The world he did join was chanting ‘Bitcoin to be global!’ No border, harmonized,Connecting the world with pervasive money,He opened our minds, made the banks look funny, But the world past Satoshi is forever changed,Whether his origin block is lost or unclaimed, The world is wrought, and distraught, bureaucrats, too,Governments don’t know what to do! We want a new world order,We want play across the border,I just want to be a hodler,I’m a Bitcoin hustler,I’m a Bitcoin hustler,I’m ‘a Bitcoin hustlin’, yeah, Get your hustle goin’,Flex that crypto-muscle, Bitcoin had turmoil,It’s been in hot oil,When Silk Road, Mt.

Gox committed crimes,But Draper said to me,The unbanked economy will use coin to drive their times, He went and predicted, 3 years, 10K,The press said, ‘He’s stupid, he’s nuts, go away,’ He said money would transcend borders,The military might stop giving orders,The governments will have to compete for us now,Cause if we don’t like one we can now bust out, We won’t think twice when you control movement and price,We won’t be victims of political device, Get your hustle goin’,Flex your crypto-muscle! So, Satoshi, wherever you are,Thank you for Bitcoin, the blockchain, and more, You started this snowball,From the top of the hill, And now it’s pervasive,It’s the people’s will,It’s the people’s will.

We want a new world order,We want play across the border,I just want to be a hodler,I’m a Bitcoin hustle,I’m a Bitcoin hustle,I’m a Bitcoin hustle, yeah, Get your hustle goin’,Flex your crypto-muscle!Yeah!” After his short singing debut, the audience applauded, some of them even giving him a standing ovation. This is a tribute to the brief moment Tim Draper was a singer on stage at the TNW Conference 2018.
