You would have to be living under a rock to have not heard the buzz about cryptocurrency and how blockchain technology will change the world.
Behind the scenes there are massive amounts of cash being pumped into this emerging industry. The amount of money sloshing around the cryptocurrency markets has attracted celebrities and famous entrepreneurs alike.
Many crypto investors will say they are in it for the tech. However, let’s be honest: most people are in crypto for the money. This is perhaps most apparent when you look at the cryptocurrency projects some of these celebrities are endorsing. Does someone like Paris Hilton really care about LydianCoin? We doubt it.
On the other hand, you have billionaire entrepreneurs and maybe even the leaders of the New World Order actively investing in cryptocurrencies and crypto businesses. Let’s face it; legendary entrepreneurs like Richard Branson have not got to where they are today by throwing money away.
Richard Branson is by no means on his own as a maverick billionaire with a habit of dropping $30 million on a Bitcoin startup. He is in very good company with the likes of George Soros, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and the Winklevoss twins all actively investing in cryptocurrency. Maybe, just maybe, this is the smart money getting into the next big thing early?
Sure, you have serious businessmen getting into crypto. However, there are maverick crypto celebrities that could have completely lost the plot. One example of this is the rapper Akon, who has decided to create his own cryptocurrency to power his new futuristic city in Senegal. Essentially, Akon is trying to create a real life Crypto-Wakanda. Akon’s only problem is that nothing is yet built on the 2,000 acres of land he has earmarked for the project.
