The continuous increase in the price of Bitcoin, and the wider crypto market in general, have meant that more and more people have been drawn towards it over the last year or so. Even though there has been a dip in the market in the last couple of months, overall, it is still extremely attractive, especially when you compare crypto prices to where they were 12 months ago. Thus, it will come as no surprise to learn that these coins are becoming attractive to people from all over the world, including celebrities. It is also quite notable that cryptocurrencies are being used in various industries and business ventures across the world already, especially those that operate online, which is also helping to increase their popularity. For example, online casinos where there is now the opportunity to play bitcoin games by betting with cryptocurrencies are becoming more and more interesting and popular for players, and this is just one example of how big impact crypto has had on our lives already. Therefore, it is quite interesting to also see which celebrities have invested in the crypto market already, and which tokens they are backing, as we will do here.
