At Miami Bitcoin Conference, Crypto Bros Made Influencer Rachel Siegel the Joke

Siegel, 30, is a 30-year-old former substitute teacher who claims to have made millions from cryptocurrency investments since 2017. She now has over 194,000 followers on Twitter, where she tweets on the market, business news, and her personal life under the handle @CryptoFinally.

The man had posted the photo as a retweet of one of Siegel’s own: a selfie she had put up earlier that day. His photo was decidedly less flattering—a closeup of her backside taken from behind, her derriere looking notably less voluptuous. The tweet was obviously intended to highlight the difference.

Commenters quickly jumped into the replies to mock Siegel. (“How we serving them flapjacks?” one wrote.) Others made memes out of the image. By the time she saw it, Siegel said, the photo had been shared by multiple high-profile crypto accounts.

To Siegel and others, the incident was just another example of the harassment some women face in the crypto sphere. Much like in traditional finance, women are wildly outnumbered in the crypto space,
