Live Action Role Play. A LARPer is someone pretending to be something they're really not.

In the 70's and 80's LARPs were people dressing up like dungeons and dragons for Renaissance Fair. Since the dawn of YouTube and social media, LARPs are the new psyops. People LARP on YouTube as Truthers, Christians, Social Justice Warriors, and civilians.
govLARP = agents of the government pretending to be civilians. Crisis Actors = LARPers.
LARPwars = two or more LARPers in a social media pseudo-feud.
"I was on my way to Tucson, to get back into the LARP, when I lost my wallet and had to turn back"
"There's no such thing as #PizzaGate, that's just a LARP to hurt one side of politics"
"That channel says they are crowdsourcing the truth but they are just LARPing as journalists"

A Larp is an asset trader on social media who fronts as if he trades large positions, sometimes with 5-6 set ups a day, in a futile attempt to cover up the fact his sex life isn't going anywhere.

The Larp values his weight in clout more than his weight in gold.

Used predominately by the niche community of digital asset traders online on twitter, known as 'CryptoTwitter' even though they don't know anything about cryptography and instead pride themselves in their dexterity with connecting 2 candles using a line.
Bro, this showerhead guy claims to trade 150,000 contracts on BitMEX yet he's charging 0.01 $BTC for a connectfour game with him
