Bitcoin maximalist Max Keiser takes Bitcoin maximalism to the extreme with the F*ck Elon Tour, but some see this as a step too far and criticizes with negative comments.
Bitcoin maximalist Max Keiser has confirmed the F*ck Elon Tour, which will take place in Austin, Texas on July 8 and 9.
Keiser made waves earlier this month at the Bitcoin Conference in Miami for a variety of reasons. But his antics on stage with MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor, in which he repeated the phrases “we’re not selling” and “f*ck Elon,” were the most notable.
This was in response to Elon Musk’s energy-related FUD, which many claim contributed to Bitcoin’s 45 % drop from its all-time high of $65,000.
“F*ck Elon” has become a sort of catchphrase for Bitcoin maximalism. Is the Fck Elon Tour, however, doing more harm than good, given the toxicity in the bitcoin field caused by tribalism?
Despite this week’s market horror, as well as continued macroeconomic uncertainty in linking tour information, Keiser is optimistic that Bitcoin will achieve a new all-time high in the coming weeks.

The F*ck Elon Tour is described as a Bitcoin maximalist event that promotes further maximalism because maximalism is what “brought us here.”
“We don’t need less toxicity from Bitcoin maximalists. We need MOAR!!! A LOT MOAR!!!! Toxicity and plebs got us here.”
The Tour is described as a party event with distinguished guests, rather than a discussion of current events and educational contents.
But, more crucially, it’s just for Bitcoiners, with no mention of altcoins and, most importantly, no Karens.
Tickets cost $50 for the “Plebs” tier and $200 for the “JIMI” tier. “Plebs,” “Buzzcocks,” and “Casbah,” the cheapest tiers, are already sold out.
Keiser has always taken a maximalist stance when it comes to Bitcoin. However, his antics at the Bitcoin Conference have received criticism from a variety of quarters.
One such episode occurred during an interview with CNBC Africa, during which he went on a rant against political corruption.
Although what he said is true, it was his anger and aggressive response to the inquiry that brought criticism.
“Do you know that with the Bitcoin I have I can buy any frickin senator or congressman I want? I make the laws. He who has the Bitcoin makes the laws Ran. We’re not just going to sit around and let the God damn government tell us what to do…”
The f*ck Elon rant, on the other hand, is possibly the most contentious. The video has gotten a lot of negative feedback on social media, including comparisons to Bitconnect’s cultism, cringe, and so on.
Keiser is an outspoken supporter of Bitcoin, as evidenced by his public appearances.
His showmanship, on the other hand, is rubbing people the wrong way, which does little to persuade the doubtful about the virtues of the leading cryptocurrency.
