Legendary American boxer Mike Tyson – considered by many to be the best in history – publicly expressed his interest in cryptocurrencies. On his Twitter account, he asked his more than 5 million followers which digital asset they would prefer when investing.
“Which do you prefer, bitcoin (BTC) or ether (ETH)?” She asked Tyson in their social network. Immediately, the crypto community reacted favorably and its main references reached out to the boxer to help him.
Jack Dorsey, CEO of Square and Twitter, responded to the post with an informative post about bitcoin, so that Tyson can properly inform himself before entering the market. Michael Saylor, CEO of MicroStrategy and an exponent of institutional investments in the market, did not miss the opportunity either.
“Mike, I spent over a thousand hours considering this question and chose bitcoin. So far, I have bought $ 2.9 billion worth of BTC because I believe it is the future of digital property,” Saylor said. In addition, the businessman shared a link where he published “tons of free education about bitcoin.”
Tyson’s tweet not only supposes a growth of cryptocurrencies in the financial considerations of the big stars, but also triggers the levels of adoption, from the influence of these potential new investors.
Rapper Busta Rhymes, for example, is now considering investing in cryptocurrencies because of the boxer’s tweet. “Mike, I’m with you. I spent the last 30 minutes reading the comments,” wrote the artist.
