Anthony Pompliano (aka Pomp) tweeted the record producer to congratulate the newest Bitcoiner, even asking his followers to welcome Beatz to the crypto community.
Murda Beatz is a noted record producer who has worked with the likes of Grammy-nominated albums of Cardi B, Travis Scott, Nipsey Hussle.
He even produced Drake’s sensational hit cover “Nice for What,” that trended No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 8 weeks.
Crypto and High Profile Celebs
The crypto space has been attracting quite a line of high profile celebrities in the crypto club. In 2013, hip hop icon Snoop Dogg announced on selling his albums in BTC.
During the ICO bubble of 2017, popular celebs like Paris Hilton and Floyd Mayweather endorsed new coins. However, both the projects turned out to be not of quality material as like most of the ICO projects of that time.
Gwyneth Paltrow is another Hollywood celeb who advocates for Bitcoin. Paltrow herself has been an advisor at Bitcoin wallet Abra. Tech investor and Hollywood’s favorite Ashton Kutcher has invested in crypto startups like UnikoinGold alongside billionaire Mark Cuban.
However, UnikoinGold’s native Unikrn token came under fire last month for violating securities laws with a fine of $6.1 million by the SEC last month. Kutcher has also invested in the crypto payment service BitPay.
Former UFC champion Ben Askren regularly tweets on Bitcoin. The fighter supported Bitcoin’s last crypto halving by changing his Twitter display name to “Bitcoin Halving May 13.”
The cryptocurrency space is still yet to reach its peak mainstream adoption. Hence, the involvement of popular celebs and public figures helps towards bringing notice among the general people who otherwise might have no clue about it.
