Iconic ‘Buy Bitcoin’ Sign From Janet Yellen’s Testimony Sells for $1 Million in Crypto Auction – Breaking News Bitcoin News

Christian Langalis, famously known as “Bitcoin Sign Guy,” has auctioned the “Buy Bitcoin” sign he displayed during Janet Yellen’s 2017 Congressional testimony for 16 BTC, approximately $1 million dollars at current prices. The sign was listed on the Scarce City marketplace, and was drawn on a yellow legal pad with a Uniball Vision pen. Langalis plans to use the auction proceeds to fund his startup, Tirrel Corp, which is working on a Bitcoin Lightning network wallet and implementation. The auction started on April 18 and culminated with in-person bidding on April 24 at PubKey, a bitcoin-themed bar in New York, to celebrate with the bitcoin community.
