The Teletubbies may be the next Bitcoiners.

Many in the cryptocurrency room have been piqued by a tweet with the hashtag “Bitcoin” from the British television programme.

Teletubbies, a British children’s television programme that has been on the air since 1997, is displaying signs that its endearing characters may be the newest entrants into the crypto domain.

The official Teletubbies Twitter account shared a tweet with the hashtag “Bitcoin” on Wednesday, claiming that the characters were “probably shielding” something from viewers. Tinky Winky, known for his purple colour, and Po, known for her red colour, all pose with laser eyes next to a giant question mark.

Adding laser eyes to profile pictures has become somewhat commonplace among influential representatives of the cryptocurrency space as a token of adoption and general bullish sentiment. However, this is normally from parents, not children aged one to four, who are the Teletubbies’ main audience.

While some young people are keen to promote cryptocurrency, the demographic for the Teletubbies audience has some wondering if the tweet is a set-up for an April Fools’ Day prank tomorrow. Twitter users have already hopped on the tweet with crypto-themed puns, pitching names of characters that suit the room better:

The announcement coincides with the show’s 24th anniversary. Though it is uncertain if Teletubbies wants to troll its 14,500 Twitter followers tomorrow with the release of a phoney nonfungible coin, the show might be considering teaching young children about cryptocurrencies. Elon Musk’s 10-month-old son is a Dogecoin (DOGE) HODLer, and three-year-old Lily Knight went semiviral in the crypto room last month after publishing a video describing the dwindling availability of Bitcoin (BTC) using Skittles sweets.

“If Teletubbies start teaching kids about Bitcoin then the banks are really f**ked,” said Twitter user DeepBlueCrypto.
