After Trolling Bitcoin, Harry Potter Author JK Rowling Moves to Ethereum, Is XRP Next?
Last week, Harry Potter author JK Rowling got the Crypto Twitter started by asking the question, “I don’t understand bitcoin. Please explain it to me.” CT hasn’t even overcome that excitement that Rowling has restarted it all yet again.
This morning she took to Twitter to share some bits of “hard-won” advice which included “Never be flippant about Bitcoin on Twitter.” Given that CT is still explaining her Bitcoin, it makes sense. Then she took one step further and elaborated this hard-won advice,
“my mentions are still full of people trying to get me to buy Bitcoin or to explain it to me. It’s very kind of you, but I swear, I now feel fully educated on the subject.”
But as Hodlonaut said, “Bitcoin won’t go away. Fully educated or not, you will be hearing a lot about it going forward.”
But it wasn’t all.
“This is getting silly. I’m not joining the Bitcoin community. It should be perfectly obvious by now that I’ve been trolling Bitcoin in the hope of boosting my significant Ethereum holdings.”
Oh! She did not.
Rowling might have flipped through or missed Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin’s explanation of Bitcoin from the weekend but unfortunately, we all remember and CT doesn’t forget as we keep the screenshots.
His explanation included the world’s leading cryptocurrency “not backed by anything,” being just like a collectible that is not controlled by a single group of people and as such no one “can just go and issue more units to their friends or manipulate its rules for political reasons.”
Also, a combination of global payment systems and store of value tied with the bow of “21st century cryptographic tech.”
So far, Buterin hasn’t jumped in to define Ethereum but the day is just getting started.
Rowling, however, clarified that “this is also a joke.”
But with Day 3 dedicated to Ethereum (ETH), does XRP also have a chance now?
Only tomorrow will tell!
