Responding to a tweet from Cameron Winklevos, cryptocurrency exchange co-founder Gemini, rock star Gene Simmons said he plans to make Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) more accessible.
“It’s easier to buy bitcoin and ether if you are already using the old system,” Winklevos said in a tweet on September 15, summing up a long line of ethnic differences, cryptocurrencies and the decentralized economy. “If you do not have a bank account, it is difficult to get money from cryptocurrencies,” he said, adding, “We need to change this.”
Simmons, vocalist and co-founder of popular rock band Kiss, said mysteriously:
“I will. I am him.”
The confusing comment may have made the market think about what Simmons really meant. Cointelegraph contacted Simmons for more information, but received no response during a press conference. This article will be updated accordingly if responses are received.
This isn’t the first time that Simmons has mentioned Crypto’s biggest assets. Simmons mentioned his positive outlook on Bitcoin in September 2017. “I’m interested in Bitcoin, but only as part of the [investment] puzzle,” explained a Street celebrity in an interview three years ago.
Gaten posted his interview with Simmons on September 15, 2017 – exactly three years before his current response to Cameron Winklevus.
Bitcoin received comments from other notable people as well in 2020, according to author Harry Potter J. Rowling, although the author has voiced significant confusion about the origin.
