Some on Twitter seem to be of a similar opinion, posting photos of Bitcoin posters seen amidst the current chaos.

What started as social revenge for the death of black citizen George Floyd from policemen misusing their powers has poured into massive social unrest caused by the current financial crisis, tremendous job losses figure and the restrictions on making a living due to the restrictions imposed by the quarantine.

However, some individuals who believe in the peaceful protest were captured by passerby's cameras standing with posters saying that Bitcoin can change the current situation for the better.

The head and co-founder of Kraken, Jesse Powell, has tweeted that a friend of his has had to postpone a vital surgical operation because of the riots. The person is deathly ill, Powell tweets.

The disorder in the streets has prevented the person from making it on time to organ transplantation which he has been waiting on for a long time.
