British Royal Family’s Prince Charles is Apparently a Bitcoin Fan and Blockchain-based Crypto Assets
As many of our readers are probably well aware of, Bitcoin has (by far) been the best performing financial asset of 2019 — with the currency experiencing massive monetary growth over the course of the past 14 months despite being faced with intense bearish conditions during this time frame.
Not only that, over the course of Q1 2019, the flagship crypto asset has been able to surge by over 50 percent BTC -0.78 — thereby breaking many of its projected resistance levels with apparent ease.
With that being said, it now appears as though Prince Charles — one of the most prominent members of the British monarchy — is gradually warming up to the idea of blockchain. This is because, in a recent interview he was quoted as saying that the technology was “quite interesting” and that it had a “massive financial upside”.

More on the Matter
When asked about Bitcoin during a recent Q&A session, Charles claimed that while he didn’t know too much about the currency itself, he was “very aware” of its underlying framework — blockchain — and its massive functional utility within a host of different industries and domains.
The fact that a 70-year old Prince knows this much about blockchain just goes to show how much traction this technology has been able to garner over the course of the past few years.
While Charles’ comments can’t be taken too seriously, they do highlight the fact that more and more folks from the older generations are becoming aware about the overall utility and usability of various crypto-enabled technologies.
