British rapper KSI believes people should think of investing in BTC as a long-term investment strategy, not as “fast money”
British YouTuber and rapper KSI has revealed that he is a strong supporter of Bitcoin. According to him, the primary cryptocurrency represents the future, and those who hold it will profit in the coming years.
‘I’m Really In Love With Crypto’
Olajide Olayinka Williams “JJ” Olatunji, better known as KSI – stands for Knowledge, Power, and Integrity – has revealed that she is a supporter of Bitcoin. Speaking to British magazine GQ, he argued that digital assets will play an important role in the future of finance. KSI went further, stating that if he were prime minister, he would distribute £100 worth of BTC to every UK citizen:
“I would give everyone £100 worth of Bitcoin – like a Bitcoin stimulus package for everyone . I’m really into cryptocurrencies. I think Bitcoin is the future.”
The 29-year-old rapper and YouTube star believe the leading cryptocurrency is the right investment vehicle for the long term. According to him, the people who allocated part of their wealth there will “laugh” after 10 years :
“It will definitely be long-term, but in ten years people will be laughing. I feel like a lot of people don’t really see this: They try to look for quick money like, ‘Oh, I want to get in and out. It’s a long-term thing and that’s what I’m here for.”
KSI then compared BTC to fiat money and opted for Bitcoin. He reminded that while traditional currencies are inflationary, the amount of Bitcoin is limited, and “it has value.”
Other Rap Stars Curious About Digital Assets
Another popular rap singer who has announced his support for cryptocurrencies is DeAndre Cortez Way, better known as Soulja Boy. The artist, who created a song called “Bitcoin” in 2018, started a Twitter conversation with prominent people in early 2021, hinting that he could launch his own digital presence.
Notable names like Changpeng Zhao ( Binance CEO) and Tyler Winklevoss (Gemini co-founder) quickly advertised their products to the rapper.
Hip Hop legend Eminem also joined the NFT craze by releasing his own collection. 15-time Grammy winner Marshall Bruce Mathers III – known worldwide by his stage name Eminem – has partnered with the Nifty Gateway platform to announce the digital collection Shady Con.
Just a few weeks ago, Trevor George Smith Jr., popular with his fans as Busta Rhymes, revealed to his nearly 4 million Twitter followers that he owns a Bitcoin. He said his main reason for joining the BTC community was the recent conversation between Elon Musk, Jack Dorsey, and Cathie Wood at The B Word Event.
