Yesterday, the comedian Kevin Hart called Bitcoin and Ethereum “voodoo money”, however, he said that he would accept them in a charity fundraiser.
Hart has hosted the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s telethon for the first time yesterday; it is a fundraiser for children having muscular dystrophy.
In the live-streamed show, Hart was asked by the actor Jay Ellis if the charity accepts “Bitcoin, Ethereum, or any other cryptocurrencies” in donations.
He was then interrupted in his earpiece and commented to the audience:
The comedian went on to buddy about with some celebrities like Michael B. Jordan, Eva Longoria, and Jack Black in the two-hour event.
It is not the first time that Bitcoin received a celebrity shout out.
The night before that, Kanye West expressed on the Joe Rogan experience that “Bitcoin guys” were people who “really have a perspective on what the true liberation of America and humanity will be.”
And now the Bitcoin big-upside hadn’t hurt the coin’s price. Recently, the largest coin by market cap has reached new highs, now hitting a price of $13,329, the most expensive since June 2019.
