Zuckerberg’s picture of his goats has set the social media abuzz, especially because he named one of his goats, Bitcoin. The post got more than nine lakh reactions and almost two lakh comments.

While the world debated what the post could mean, Zuckerberg was very straightforward. “My goats: Max and Bitcoin,” he wrote while sharing the photograph on Facebook. Bitcoin investors were more than glad as they got free publicity from none other than the Facebook founder.


A twitter user said: “Mark Zuckerberg named his goats #Bitcoin and Max. What most people don’t realize is Max is short for Maximalist.”

Another user said: “Mark Zuckerberg named his goat Bitcoin, @elonmusk should get us DogeGoat immediately. Smiling face with open mouth and cold sweat.”

“Which one is Bitcoin?” asked one Facebook user, while another wondered if Zuckerberg would sell Bitcoin to him.

While the pic became a subject of discussion on Facebook and Twitter, there was curiosity if the FB co-founder is going to invest in Bitcoin soon, just like Elon Musk’s Tesla.
