University speaker booed for promoting bitcoin in an ayahuasca-fueled speech


He claims to have written his weird bitcoin-shilling graduation address while under the influence of the hallucinogenic drug, ayahuasca. Thousands of students at Ohio State University booed him this past weekend when he presented the speech.

On Sunday, Chris Pan, who calls himself a “social entrepreneur,” investor, and musician, was asked to speak at the university’s spring commencement, which is the ceremony where graduating students get their diplomas. He promised his audience “financial, emotional, and spiritual freedom” by following his financial advice, which he distributed throughout his address.

But when he began to promote bitcoin and tried to explain bitcoin ETFs by doing a magic trick that purportedly transformed three-quarters into an actual bitcoin, most of the 12,500-strong audience booed him.

After that, he attempted to backtrack on his bitcoin statements by giving out bracelets created by his firm to everyone in the audience, and he urged that grads fight despair by singing.

He apologized for bringing up bitcoin and promised to give each fan in the stadium a personalized MyIntent bracelet as a token of his appreciation. Hopefully this will carry you into the next chapter of your life.

Pan expressed his gratitude on Linkedin, writing, “I got some assistance from AI (Ayahuasca Intelligence) this week to prepare my graduation address.” He went on to say that he had tried utilizing ChatGPT, but the results were disappointing.

Indigenous South American civilizations use the psychedelic substance ayahuasca in shamanic rituals. The unpleasant side effects of this drug include vomiting and diarrhoea, yet it is said to bring forth spiritual breakthroughs and psychedelic experiences.

Pan allegedly had his bitcoin recommendations ready to go in an earlier version of his speech, with the goal of encouraging “those who identify as alpha males would invest in more” during an interactive song portion, and he described in full his intention to undress while telling an elephant tale.

There were reviews of his speech drafts, according to an OSU official. The ayahuasca-inspired speech, on the other hand, failed to influence either the audience or public opinion online. A Reddit user expressed their disapproval of the university’s decision to hire a “LinkedIn loser” who promotes bitcoin. Someone has to take responsibility for this since it is humiliating.

“Whoever hired this fool is even less in touch with college students than college authorities,” another poster said.
