Oftentimes, the faces of crypto belong to hedge fund managers and Wall Street moguls. But as the adoption of bitcoin becomes commonplace, more recognizable investors are starting to surface.
Since 2017, crypto investments and Bitcoin have become a fairly common topic of conversation, making it unlikely that you’ve not heard of the industry. However, truly widespread adoption has been slow, until this year that is. 2020 has marked the minds of the global population in a number of ways, but perhaps most notably (for this article anyway) is the impressive increase in the adoption of cryptocurrencies, blockchain technology, and of course, bitcoin.
As fiat fails to capture the attention and trust of a global economy on edge, more and more people are turning towards cryptocurrencies as a worthwhile investment. With new users pouring into helpful trading platforms like Bitvavo and scouring the internet for useful investing advice. Only to find out that some of our favorite and most well-known celebrities aren’t only bitcoin owners, but some are longstanding authorities in the cryptocurrency market.
