Socialite Kim Kardashian has become the latest famous Kim to own Bitcoin – while attending an international poker tournament.
Adding to the list of a host of celebrities vouching for the cryptocurrency Bitcoin is the socialite and American reality television personality, Kim Kardashian. The ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ updated her Instagram story on 29th July saying ‘We moved on to Bitcoin’.
To boost awareness, the tournament featured members from one of America’s most popular celebrity families with Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian West, Khloé Kardashian and Kendall Jenner all in attendance. The Kardashian and Jenner clan, who filmed the event, plan to release an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians based on the event later this year.
While it’s not possible to predict exactly what the future episode will entail, even the mention of Bitcoin could further increase the exposure of the digital currency to the millions of dedicated Keeping Up With the Kardashians fans.
Kardashian is perhaps the biggest social personality to come into contact with Bitcoin and its ethos so far.
Despite cryptocurrency making various lesser inroads into public consciousness through the music industry, a direct endorsement of Bitcoin rather than a tailor-made altcoin project marks something of a leap forward.
Kanye West, also briefly spoke about Bitcoin in an interview and has teased his followers with cryptic tweets.
Now as a clear owner of BTC, Kim Kardashian West is arguably one of Bitcoin’s most recognizable holders and her considerable social influence may nudge the next wave of adoption. It appears we will have to keep up with the Kardashians to see what kind of effect Bitcoin has on them, and the effect they might have on Bitcoin – if any.
