Maisie Williams requested whether or not she ought to get into Bitcoin, and who ought to reply to the decision however multi-billionaire Elon Musk?
Here’s one thing I guess you didn’t assume you’d hear in the present day: Maisie Williams, who performed the stab-happy Arya Stark on Game of Thrones, requested her Twitter followers concerning the cryptocurrency Bitcoin, and will reply however…SpaceX CEO and multi-billionaire Elon Musk?
First of all, if you happen to’re not conversant in Bitcoin, then I like to recommend you do some Googling as a result of the percentages of me successfully explaining it are low. Basically, it’s a digital, decentralized type of foreign money that, relying on who you ask, is both a genius thought that may perpetually change the way in which we take into consideration cash…or a Ponzi scheme with cult-like evangelists that makes use of a lot computing energy (to maintain observe of transactions) that it threatens the surroundings.
So opinions range. For higher or worse, Maisie Williams has it on the mind:
As you’ll be able to see, most of her followers don’t assume Bitcoin is a super-safe funding. In that, they’re in settlement with at the very least eight Nobel laureates who assume it’s a speculative bubble destined to pop. (It does have a status for fluctuating wildly in worth.) What does Elon Musk, who’s value practically $100 billion on the time of this writing, have so as to add to the dialog?
Should I be impressed that Elon Musk has the time to study that bop of a tune from The Witcher and joke about Bitcoin on Twitter on high of sending privately constructed rocketships into house? The jury’s out on that one.
This isn’t the primary time he’s talked with celebrities about Bitcoin, although. Earlier this yr, Harry Potter creator J.Okay. Rowling requested folks on Twitter to clarify Bitcoin to her, and Musk chimed in:
Musk’s actual view on Bitcoin is sort of laborious to pin down. In a podcast early this yr, he stated that he was “neither here nor there on Bitcoin,” specializing in its status for getting used as foreign money in unlawful transactions…which he doesn’t fully factor is a nasty factor. It’s nuanced.
“Toss a bitcoin to ur witcher”…possibly he signifies that Henry Cavill ought to get into Bitcoin.
