Yep, Paytm is now Binod.
A burning question that left many on the Indian Internet scratching their heads on Friday was: Who is Binod? The short answer to that is… everyone is Binod.
For those who aren’t in sync with the weird world of memes, Slayy Point, a famous YouTube channel run by Abhyudaya and Gautami recently went down the rabbit hole that is the Indian comments section in one of their videos and a meme was born.
Both Abhyudaya and Gautami gave us a glimpse of what really goes on in the “filthy” comments section of videos where the commenters leave behind stuff that will have you scratching your heads. From “thoko likes” to penning down out of context poetries, a lot goes on in the comments’ world.
Titled “Why Indian Comments Section is Garbage (BINOD),” one of the comments that stood out in their now-viral video was from a certain person Binod Tharu who simply wrote “Binod”.
Internet being Internet, turned everything and everyone around them into Binod. As the memes flooded the social media timelines, a Twitter user who goes by the handle @GabbbarSingh made a humble request to the leading mobile payments app Paytm to change their official Twitter username to Binod.
“@Paytm Can you change your name to Binod? Be a sport. C’mon,” the user wrote tagging the brand on the microblogging site.

“Done,” responded Paytm and changed its name to Binod on Twitter.
Slayy Point, the originator of the Binod meme was impressed as were the others.
This is how Paytm’s profile page looks like right now.
In case you missed the Binod memes, here are a few of them:
This is where it all started.
Guess what? Everyone is Binod.
