Celebrities using bitcoin Today

It’s been 11 years since Bitcoin’s inception, where it has become an extremely popular cryptocurrency used by people worldwide. Many governments, central banks, and even mainstream businesses and companies have become interested in grasping the benefits provided by Bitcoin’s Blockchain technology. As a result, we’ve seen many positive comments from popular figures like John McAfee, Elon Musk, and even Jack Dorsey talking about Bitcoin. However, only a few seem to use it in their daily lives.

Imagine someone famous within the mainstream world showing him/herself using Bitcoin in a Hollywood movie or even in public. We may be still far from seeing this become a reality as Bitcoin is still not scalable for the world yet (the Lightning Network is under active development). Maybe after micropayments become viral on the LN, we’ll be able to see more celebrities using Bitcoin in public? Average people in the mainstream world would surely use Bitcoin for their daily lives if they see someone famous patronizing the cryptocurrency.

Do you think celebrities in the mainstream world are still using Bitcoin for their own benefit? If so, which famous people are deeply into Bitcoin right now? I’d love to see someone like Keanu Reeves, Microsoft’s Satya Nadella, or even Apple’s Tim Cook using (and patronizing) Bitcoin someday. At such degree, I think Bitcoin would’ve reached massive adoption within the mainstream world. Thoughts?

Just days ago, the famous rapper Akon has launched his own cryptocurrency coin, called Akoin. This aims to power an entire city that would run on his currency that would be called Akon City, somewhere near 2000-acre land on West Africa. Such feat and initiative might prove the world that cryptocurrency can actually be used as a currency, and not just a speculative asset to play with.

Wow, never heard of this but it’s cool!
Never thought that popular artists are also into cryptocurrency now, there are probably some more but just buying and holding some crypto but doesn’t let other people know.
Sometimes, I was hoping some influencers could actually do some live streaming of something like Facebook gaming does. They are all over my newsfeed recently, but I am not sure if Facebook allows it.

I am not updates with the latest celebrities who are into Bitcoin either using it as a currency or maybe just like many of us can also be holding the coins like an investment. Celebrities can be influencing many people to do or be a part of something they are also into and if we can have many showbiz personalities really endorsing Bitcoin then there is a big possibility that some of their loyal following can do the same thing. However, I do not think that a celebrity will be actively endorsing Bitcoin because they are really not getting anything out of it as they are used to being paid endorsers…we do not have the budget for that. What some celebrities did is just mentioned Bitcoin in their interviews or maybe on Twitter but nothing really so dramatic other than that. Now, having said this, I do not really believe that the fate of Bitcoin or that chance for more adoption is hinging on any celebrity, but they can be of help though. The fate f Bitcoin is on the hands of the people, you, me, your neighbors, your family and friends and just anybody on the street.

Big people keeps talking about bitcoin while very few are directly associated with the bitcoin usage. In recent days I find Akon to be one of the celebrity who has close connection with bitcoin as well as cryptocurrencies. He has created his own Akoin cryptocurrency, and now with the same he has begun to develop his own city with Akoin as the usable currency. This is quite interesting and the effort to help the people of Africa has now gained more media attention.

Now with the rising demand for bitcoin we can see more popular faces to help in the promotion of bitcoin.

actually, in my country, some celebrities have used and used bitcoin, but that is not for daily use, but they use it as a tool for investment.
I know some artists because of some news coverage about it. I think this development will become more widespread. however, celebrities are also investors.

On the other side, some celebrities are afraid to damage their image. So it would be hard for them to advertise Bitcoin to the public when there’s a lot of risk and scam that they can encounter. You know some fans just really follow their idols even if they don’t know what it is. So if others got scammed they can blame that celebrity because he/she promoted it. And also, when a famous person promotes Bitcoin, scammers can use his name to scam people… Maybe some celebrities are just afraid to tell the public but maybe, they’re also using Bitcoin without telling the public.
