The cryptocurrency community is already used to celebrities talking about bitcoin, but American rapper Megan Thee Stallion took things to a whole new level by recently announcing a bitcoin giveaway on Twitter.
In conjunction with the cryptocurrency exchange Swapcoinbit, she will send her followers $1 million worth of bitcoins.
2020 was a truly remarkable year for Megan: She was nominated for a Grammy Award and two of her tracks were number one hits.
Although the recent bitcoin rally has been dominated mostly by institutional players, Megan has also contributed to the acceptance of the cryptocurrency by the general public.
In her next tweet, the hip-hop star wrote that bitcoin tends to grow over time, encouraging people to make “smart investments.”In August, Meghan, along with rapper Cardi B, hosted a #WAPParty to give away $1 million to her female fans in partnership with Swapcoinbit. The party was timed to coincide with the release of their joint track, “WAP,” a number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100.
Famous rappers embrace bitcoin
Jack Dorsey, CEO of Square and Twitter, is an ardent supporter of bitcoin, which explains Meghan’s sudden love of cryptocurrencies.
However, famous rappers have shown interest in cryptocurrency quite often. In 2018, 50 Cent talked about his $8 million worth of bitcoins, and Eminem rapped about how everyone “makes bitcoins” in his album “Kamikaze.”
