You probably know Shiloh Silverman as the guy who made the viral Paypal Bitcoin parody of Paypal’s “New Money” Super Bowl commercial. Now, we are proud to announce that Shiloh has joined the Bitcoin.com team, and will be producing high-quality videos for our visitors to enjoy.
The Legendary Paypal Bitcoin Parody
Shiloh made his Paypal parody in response to the claim in the company’s commercial that Paypal was “New Money.” The commercial made it seem like Paypal was finally bringing money into the digital age when the reality couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Paypal has received a lot of outrage for making it difficult to move money in and out of the platform. Users have complained that large sums of money often get stuck in Paypal for apparently no reason. A quick Google search of “money stuck in Paypal” returns pages of forum and blog posts complaining about money getting stuck on the users’ accounts. Some people even accuse Paypal of stealing their money.
Paypal isn’t “New Money,” it really isn’t that much better than the traditional banking system. And that’s why Shiloh made his parody video. He believes that Bitcoin is the where the real improvements are made to money. Bitcoin is trustless and decentralized; no one can freeze your money.
Shiloh is excited to join the Bitcoin.com team, he hopes he will be able to spread awareness about Bitcoin’s potential:
Bitcoin pumps new life into Adam Smith’s “invisible hand.” Through the voluntary exchange of goods and services, it represents a non-political mechanism that can be used to achieve a freer society in the 21st century. That’s why I’m so excited to join the team at Bitcoin.com – if only to be a small part in the movement.
