We know Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk is a Bitcoin enthusiast. As are the Winklevoss twins, entrepreneurs and co-founders of Facebook back in the day. John McAfee, founder of McAfee Anti-virus is an investor famous for his predictions on the potential of Bitcoin. You’ve undoubtedly heard that Ashton Kutcher, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, Mel Brown, and Mike Tyson are some more of the more well-known backers of cryptocurrency. Each one has an interesting story about how they came to be invested.
But you may not have heard much about a few celebrities who have joined the ranks of those who enthusiastically invest in Bitcoin. Like Sean Ono Lennon, son of Beatle John Lennon and Yoko Ono. He was recently interviewed on the Orange Pill Podcast. In case you haven’t heard of it, the Orange Pill Podcast on YouTube is Max Keiser’s show where he discusses all things Bitcoin and interviews interesting people in the cryptocurrency world. Keiser is a Bitcoin pioneer and unabashed Bitcoin supporter, calling other cryptocurrencies “sh!tcoins”.
Lennon has faith in Bitcoin’s potential to change the world for the better. “Talking to you guys about bitcoin is one of the only things this year that has given me more optimism and happiness about my faith in the near future and humanity in general,” Lennon said. “Bitcoin is something that empowers individuals. It empowers people in a way they’ve never been empowered before.”
Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams (who plays the character Arya Stark) recently announced that she has bought into Bitcoin even though some of her followers advised her against it when she asked them for their advice on Twitter.
Mexican billionaire Ricardo Salinas Pliego also took to Twitter recently to send a message to Dan Held, Bitcoin enthusiast and entrepreneur, explaining that he has invested 10% of his liquid portfolio in Bitcoin. He wanted to clarify that he had 10% of his liquid portfolio and not 10% of his net worth in BTC which he apparently began buying in 2016.
As the value of Bitcoin increases, and the supply is scarce and finite, there will undoubtedly be more jumping on the bandwagon. As of publication date for this post, BTC is trading at well over $18k with some predicting it will hit $100k by the end of 2021. To date, the highest it has gotten is just under $20k, so we are heading into exciting territory!
