This list of top famous Bitcoin and cryptocurrency investors you are about to read is spreading adoption in more ways than one. Not only can these people afford to buy larger amounts of digital assets, which of course lowers the supply and increases the demand of the world’s most interesting crypto projects, they can also promote it using their image and likeness. That means newbies scouring social media for whatever’s trending might hear about blockchain terminology and cryptocurrencies for the first time through their favourite personalities across a wide range of genres and interests including technology, music, sports and just popular culture in general.
That’s why we’ve decided to pay homage to these people. They can give projects a platform almost instantly. While many stick to the top dogs in the industry like Bitcoin, some promote other lesser-known projects that might indeed have something to say when it comes to decentralizing the world in the future. That could be for better or for worse depending on one’s perspective.
Nevertheless, it’s time to present some of the most famous Bitcoin and cryptocurrency investors in the world.
When she’s not talking about the health benefits of magic mushrooms or Whim Hof breathing on her Goop Labs themed documentary series, Paltrow is investing in cryptocurrency. She is likely a Bitcoin holder given her involvement as an advisor and investor with the Bitcoin wallet app company Abra.
Pitbull announced in April 2018 that he would be getting involved with a company called eMerge Americas. The partnership is set to launch a crypto project aimed to change the way fans and companies pay for music. The project is going to be called Smackathon. Pitbull is supporting the music industry in a new and exciting way. Who knew he had a penchant for technology?
Billionaire Mark Cuban and Actor Ashton Kutcher
Mark Cuban owns the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks and Ashton Kutcher is famous for his role on That 70’s Show and the MTV series Punk’d. The two own more than $25 million worth of Unkrn tokens thanks to their participation in the initial coin offering in 2017. Cuban’s investment was largely speculative because he’s involved in sports. He’s changed his mind many times about whether or not Bitcoin has value.
Snoop Dogg is of course the legendary West Coast gangster rapper and cannabis enthusiast. It would be easy to assume that his crypto investments have something to do with either or, but that’s an incorrect guess. Snoop actually accepted a donation in crypto currency that went towards his interest in building youth football leagues throughout California and across America.
Yes, she might’ve been kicked off TV for sharing some controversial opinions a few years ago, but it suits Barr’s personality. Knowing that she is not afraid to share what she really thinks, it’s no surprise somebody so outspoken might be interested in taking money out of the hands of the government and putting it into Bitcoin. The sitcom star is one of them.
Famous for his starring role on The Drew Carey show, the current host of The Price is Right got refused when trying to buy breakfast with Bitcoin way back in 2013. He tweeted about it so it must be true. So whether he’s collecting Bitcoin or fiat money, you know Carey must be earning a hefty price in taking over for the legendary Bob Barker.
When he’s not busy building Virgin Galactica, which is literally aiming to launch wealthy people into space for a very large fee, Branson is likely counting his Bitcoin. He invested $30 million in BitPay many years ago. That’s a large amount, but then again, what’s $30 million to a billionaire?
Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Some consider Floyd Mayweather Jr. to be the greatest boxer of all time, even more so than Mike Tyson. After all, he’s never lost a professional bout in his entire career and regularly catches in $300 million paychecks for a pay-per-view event. He’s famous for flaunting how much money has too, and some of that money comes in the form of Bitcoin, Etheruem and other altcoins, as he famously tweeted about in 2017.
