Matthew Roszak Gifts Kim Kardashian 1 Bitcoin After Reality Star’s Viral Crypto Plug
Matthew Roszak Gifts Kim Kardashian One BTC – “We Moved onto Bitcoin” says the Reality Star
Co-Founder and Chairman of blockchain company, Bloq, Matthew Roszak took to Twitter to share the news that Kim Kardashian received her first ever BTC, which he presented to her. Roszak, who was reportedly a guest at the Charity Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament held in California on July 29, gave what appears to be a “physical Bitcoin wallet”.

Kim Kardashian also expressed her enthusiasm for the titan token, as she commented, “We moved onto Bitcoin!”, in the comments of an Instagram post. Bear in mind that the reality star and socialite has a gigantic online community base, easily exceeding 100 million followers.
While one might assume that introducing a recognized celebrity might allow for the entrance of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology into mainstream to be smoother, the news did not set for several crypto fanatics.
A Reddit user seems to have lost hope in this news, as they view Kardashian’s acknowledgement and support for bitcoin as a “confirmation I was looking for that I’ve made a sound financial decision.”

Kardashian’s husband, Kanye has been a controversial figure as he is known for openly saying what he thinks, which never turns out as he expects. He has previously shared his thoughts on cryptocurrencies with TMZ but has yet to comment on Kardashian’s new asset holding.
Kanye also won a lawsuit against altcoin, Coinye, which was first titled “Coinye West” – resembling Kanye’s name. The altcoin, which was hip hop-based has since halted. As per Coin Desk, the coin was created as a parody, but ended up being an “expensive endeavor” for its creators.
