"I'm in it for the technology" is a term which has been endeared by Crypto Twitter after a tweet on April 25th, 2018 by Nouriel Roubini a popular economist and NYU professor.

In this popular depiction, a famous Indian businessman (Dattatrey Phuge) is pictured wearing his 22-carat pure gold shirt made for him with gold chains, bling and a gold Bitcoin emblem.

This is not really a humble brag… but a terrible attempt as misdirection… as the motives are evident.
