Famous model, businesswoman and Kanye West’s ex-wife was spotted advertising cryptocurrency on her Instagram account with almost 300 million subscribers. She posted a story asking her followers if they are interested in crypto. She dropped some information about the E-max burning 400 trillion tokens and linked their website.

The Canadian rapper Drake was throwing clues about his partnership with the Stake cryptocurrency platform. And sure, it’s all about betting and gambling. Later in February, Drake officially announced his collaboration with Stake on Instagram. The caption says “Drake and Stake have come together”.

A famous American actress and producer has surprised her fans by posting a tweet which said: “In the (near) future, every person will have a parallel digital identity. Avatars, crypto wallets, digital goods will be the norm.” At the end of her message she asked her audience “Are you planning for this?”. This one was pretty weird, considering that Reese has never posted about crypto before. However, her statement did not meet with approval of Twitter users — most of them either mocked the celebrity or remained puzzled.
Another US star, Matt Damon, has joined the crypto endorsement through the new episode of “South Park”. It is mostly concentrated on Matt, linking to his ad for Crypto.com, where he says that "fortune favors the brave" while comparing crypto investors to arctic explorers, the Wright brothers, and astronauts. In the episode, Damon says: “We are living in a severe drought. There simply isn’t a choice anymore. We have to find alternate sources for water. Hi, I’m Matt Damon. You’ve heard me talk about the wonders of cryptocurrency and now there’s a company that can give us that new source: Pipi Water!”. South Park is well known for its toxic humor, that’s why it’s still an iconic series. If you wonder which popular cartoons and movies mention crypto, make sure to check out this blog post.
The crypto community is obviously growing, and the fact that well-known people are joining actively means a lot. The other important thing is that these people do not come from finance, they have nothing to do with the banking system. As a result, many people trust them, look up to them, and follow their example coming to the Crypto World.
