Paris Hilton has cryptocurrencies

The wealthy heiress has long since become an avid investor. Paris Hilton has been involved in the smaller cryptocurrencies since 2017 when she noted her excitement about "participating in the Lydian Coin ICO." An ICO is the process of early sale of a cryptocurrency that is launched and initially distributed to a select few.

Elon Musk (of course)

The financial wizard bought $1.5 billion worth of bitcoins in February 2021. As reported by the BBC, he did so through Tesla and his move caused the cryptocurrency's value to rise by 17%, reaching a record price of $44,220 at the time. Obviously, nothing was coincidental. It was all part of a complex self-serving operation that ultimately sank the value of the cryptocurrency.

Gwyneth Paltrow

The Oscar-winning actress has not only been the face of the cryptocurrency payment startup 'Abra' but also launched an article on how to start investing for bitcoin beginners on her successful lifestyle site 'Goop'.

Hugh Laurie: Dr House had a go

The British actor was into something else...  he experimented with Vicodin to understand his character's addiction in 'House'.  But in 2015, a friend suggested he invest in bitcoin and he did so with $5,000. He was successful - he avoided the scammers and took some good advice.

Mel B accepts cryptocurrencies as payment

The singer was the first to accept bitcoin payments to buy her music in 2012. It was such a success that the former Spice Girl broke sales records. "I love how this new technology is making our lives easier," she said on Twitter.

Ashton Kutcher: faith in technology

The actor has a cryptocurrency investment firm called A-Grade and has always been a tremendous investor in bitcoins. In fact, before Donald Trump came to the White House, he tweeted that bitcoin was the best way to protect money from any economic measures he might take.

Katy Perry

Audius was born with the idea of being a music service based on cryptocurrencies. In September 2021 Katy Perry and other musicians such as Jason Derulo, Steve Aoki, and The Chainsmokers participated in funding the platform.

Floyd Mayweather Jr.: boxing and risk investment

The boxer is a promoter of several ICOs (Stox, Centra, and Hubii Network). In addition, as is usual for him, he has had no qualms about bragging on Twitter about how he spent "Bitcoins, Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies in Beverly Hills," back in 2017.

Snoop Dogg: not to be missed

The rapper is the sauce in every salad. In 2013, he announced on Twitter that he would accept bitcoins to pay for his next album, which would also be "delivered by drones."
