Top Celebrities Who Are Into Bitcoin Technology
(6 November 2017)

 

Bitcoin technology has come a long way since it was invented in 2008 by a person, or group, under the alias Satoshi Nakamoto. In the year 2017 alone, the value of the bitcoin made a major leap, from $1,006.50 as the year began to $4,420.50 at the beginning of October. In recent years, this cryptocurrency, which is said to have a limited supply of just 21 million bitcoins, has caught the attention of investors from countries all over the world because of the many advantages that this digital currency offers. In fact, the bitcoin is seen as a safe haven for investors and has been dubbed "digital gold".

Even popular celebrities have joined the bitcoin bandwagon by embracing this technology in their career, promoting it, or investing in it. Let’s take a look at some of these famous personalities.

Spice Girl Mel B

Mel B, whom we have gotten to know from her Spice Girls days as Scary Spice, has become the first music celebrity to accept bitcoin payments on her website, www.melaniebrown.com. This was back in December of 2013 as she released her single “For Once in My Life”. She partnered with Cloudhashing.com to make this innovative move possible. In a press release, the singer who is also currently one of the judges at X Factor, shares her excitement on this cutting-edge venture, explaining “I love how new technology makes our lives easier, and to me that’s exciting. Bitcoin unites my fans around the world using one currency.”

That ‘70s Show Ashton Kutcher

There are so many great movies where Ashton Kutcher starred but this very endearing actor first made us laugh in his role in the Fox sitcom That ‘70s Show. Apart from endorsing the cryptocurrency, the actor is also the co-founder of A-Grade investments organization, which launched BitPay, one of the largest payment processors that specialize in making it possible for merchants to accept bitcoins in exchange of their products and services. It is through payment processors like this that online merchants and gaming sites are able to accept bitcoin payments and allow withdrawals through a legal and secure process. For iGaming fans specifically, legal and secure is admittedly even more important, as they have deposited and are keeping their funds with operators online.

Floyd “The MoneyMaker” Mayweather

The undefeated world boxing champion, Floyd Mayweather, recent promoted ICO on Instagram, saying on the social media platform that he is expecting to make lots of money from the scheduled ICO by Stox.com. ICO is short for Initial Coin Offerings, which is a new form of fundraising wherein companies raise money from the public and offer digital coins in return. The post was made a few days before his boxing match against UFC mixed martial arts champion Conor McGregor on August 26th. In his Instagram photo, Mayweather is seen inside a private jet, seated in front of a table with stacks of hundred dollar bills.

There is no stopping the bitcoin from soaring higher. Even the stars are joining the cryptocurrency trend and others are expected to follow suit. There is so much to look forward to when it comes to bitcoin technology and the possibilities seem to be without limits.
