The year is 2013, the bitcoin subreddit moderator published a thread asking the community to send ideas for a reddit ad to promote r/bitcoin. One of the members, /u/mavensbot, created an ad in MS Paint drawing style of the Magic Internet Money Wizard. This became the best performing ad in the history of Reddit, making the subreddit start soon to grow in popularity and number of subscribers. At the time Reddit was one of the main stronghold for the bitcoin mania.
