If you thought Bitcoin was not getting enough media coverage – or was not present in the celebrity/showbiz waters – think again.
As of recently, one of the biggest ladies in showbiz and the superstar of (her very own) show “Keeping It Up With The Kardashians”, Kim Kardashian, got her first Bitcoin.
It was actually Matthew Roszak, the co-founder of Bloq and other cryptocurrency initiatives who presented the social media titan the physical bitcoin during the First Annual “If Only’ Texas Hold’Em Charity Poker Tournament” which was an event that he announced on Twitter.

Kardashian also hosted a table at the event and even took her interest about Bitcoin to her Instagram Story, posting a picture of the physical Bitcoin along with the line “We moved onto bitcoin!”
Even though many people were not thrilled by this post, there was a lot of them who said that Kim Kardashian is a true trendsetter and may actually be the catalyst that bitcoin needs for mass adoption.
Roszak, on the other hand, mentioned the Kardashians during a recent presentation at the TedX San Francisco conference and noted that there is a possibility for a KardashianCoin which will tokenize and create their own economy.
As he said at the conference:
“Every brand, every artist, every tribe, can tokenize their economy,”
Roszak ended with a confident speech towards Bitcoin, labeling it as “one of the greatest inventions of our time.”
