Bitcoin and the stock market over the last year has transcended pop culture, and been fully embraced by the world of memes and the mainstream.
What started as an April fool’s day joke earlier in the year, has since turned into a dream come true for this very trader who adores the occult and unorthodox. TradingView has graciously shared a pack of their limited edition All-Time Highs finance-focused tarot cards, which we’ve now had the chance to dig into. Here’s a hands-on look at the most unique tarot cards the trading community has ever seen.
TradingView Sends NewsBTC Team To New All-Time Highs
TradingView is the de-factor technical analysis software used by the cryptocurrency industry. It isn’t uncommon in traditional finance to see the likes of Bloomberg terminal, Optuma, or Symbolik by Thomas DeMark. But hands down when it comes to accessibility and easy to use tools that anyone can pick up and get started with technical analysis, there’s no touching TradingView.

NewsBTC almost exclusively uses TradingView charts in content, which is why our curiosity was so piqued by the very believable April fool’s prank the company played earlier this year.

A phony set of cryptocurrency and stock market themed – even forex – tarot cards were shown to the public, but sadly there weren’t real. With so much interest, TradingView turned the joke into a reality, and has since released the limited edition set of All-Time Highs to select “friends”.
The art works is high resolution and mimics the look of traditional tarot cards.
Bitcoin And Finance Centric Tarot Cards Tap Into The Arcane Arts
The tarot cards, pictured above, represent stock market, crypto, or other area of finance versions of traditional tarot cards. There are also some special guest appearances from the likes of “Papa Elon” or “Warren.”
Papa Elon raises an eye brow, Space X wand in hand.
Because there is a true to the tarot world counterpart to each card means you can still use the set for their original intended purpose. For example, the King of Crypto would be read as the King of Pentacles.
The King of Pentacles sits on a throne embellished with carvings of bulls, representing his connection to the astrological sign of Taurus, and grapes and vines adorn his robe, symbolising wealth and abundance. In his right hand, he holds the sceptre of his power, and in his left, he holds a golden coin, symbolic of his material influence. This King has an innate ability to create material wealth and financial abundance – and better yet, he can sustain his wealth over time through self-discipline, control and leadership, a description from a popular tarot interpretation site reads.
Crypto holders can certainly find symbolism in the description alone. But it is the Arcane energy within the cards that is said to matter most.
The King of Crypto replaces the King Of Pentacles Card, for example.
Tarot cards can be read a variety of ways, with as little as a single card pull. The rest of the interpretation depends on if the card is upright or upside down, and how the user wants to perceive the card’s meaning. It is reasons like this that TradingView has become a fan-favorite across crypto.

TradingView also has plenty of reasons during this “age of crypto” and age of “stonks” The company tends to have a lot of fun engaging on social media, and recently held a contest to replace their logo. They even offered to pay for the rights in BTC, helping to push crypto adoption.
