It is reasonable to say that in its early years, Bitcoin, the first cryptocurrency in history, had a very minimal “cool factor,” with the public’s perception of it as a dubious new technology favored mostly by computer nerds and crooks operating on the Dark Web. Few people were aware of its existence, and most disregarded it as a pointless digital trend like 3D TVs or passing online money.

In the last year, the price of bitcoin surpassed $68,000, making thousands of early adopters millionaires and enraging those who missed out. Bitcoin is still hip in 2022 as broad adoption nears; not only are techies talking about it, but also a wide range of international superstars. International celebrities will be among the most well-known Bitcoin investors in 2022. The top celebrities who possess Bitcoin are listed below. Be aware that some celebrities would rather openly support the bitcoin lottery and BTC-related companies than reveal the exact amount of Bitcoin they own.

  1. Elon Musk

Due to his rockstar scientist persona and his over 46 million followers, Elon Musk is perhaps the most influential person in the Bitcoin community despite his initial public skepticism of cryptocurrencies. When he added “#Bitcoin” to his Twitter bio in January 2021, everything went to hell, and BTC’s price increased by 25%. Musk, who for a brief while in January 2021 temporarily surpassed Bill Gates in wealth, earlier praised Bitcoin’s architecture as “amazing” and has more recently made his support for the virtual currency known. The purchase of $1.5 billion in BTC, which accounts for 15% of Tesla’s net cash position and 7.7% of its gross cash position, was also reported by his firm, Tesla. He possesses only 0.25 BTC, which was a gift from a buddy years ago, as far as the public is aware.

  1. Jack Dorsey

The CEO of Twitter and Square, Jack Dorsey, is an avid Bitcoin investor. His love for Bitcoin began in 2017 when he first began promoting the king coin. Even though the cryptocurrency market fell in 2018, Dorsey remained undeterred and declared Bitcoin the future global currency. Dorsey claimed to spend several thousand dollars a week on Bitcoin in March 2019. In addition to his own BTC holdings, Square, Dorsey’s payment startup, purchased 4,709 Bitcoins in October 2020, probably on his orders. In order to mine and validate deals on the Bitcoin blockchain, Dorsey also manages his Bitcoin node.

  1. Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson, a well-known professional boxer and social media personality, recognized the potential of Bitcoin before most other celebrities, announcing his support for it in 2015 and that he is “grateful” to be a part of the change. He collaborated with Bitcoin ATM producers in the same year, resulting in the tattoo of his face on BTC ATMs. To launch a mobile BTC wallet, “Iron Mike” also worked with Bitcoin Direct.

  1. Maisie Williams

In November 2020, Maisie Williams, a Game of Thrones actress, joined the Bitcoin bandwagon. More than 900,000 people responded to her tweet asking for advice on whether to “go long on Bitcoin,” with more than half warning her against doing so. Thankfully, it seemed she had already made up her mind when she said, “Thank you for the advice, I got some anyway.” Smart move, considering the cost has since more than tripled.

  1. Mark Cuban

Dallas Mavericks owner and billionaire shark tank contestant Mark Cuban, whose estimated net worth is $4.2 billion, has a love-hate relationship with Bitcoin. He once recommended that investors own Bitcoin for at least 10% of their portfolios before subsequently confessing that he’d rather own bananas than BTC. He reported his BTC holdings in April 2020, which were worth only $130 (about $635 now). He later emphasized, though, that he had held a variety of other cryptocurrencies since Coinbase’s inception. On the podcast of Anthony Pompliano, Cuban urged listeners to “go buy everything in Bitcoin.” But he also acknowledged that he would only make a significant investment in Bitcoin once it would be possible to use it without having to exchange it for fiat. The television personality and business tycoon also owns the NBA franchise Dallas Mavericks, which started accepting Bitcoin through BitPay in 2019.

  1. Snoop Dogg

In 2012, while Bitcoin was still in its infancy, the American rapper was ahead of the curve and offered his music for sale using BTC. Each record had a price tag of 0.3 BTC, which, given the current bitcoin price, is almost $16,000. However, it is unknown how many records he has sold or how much bitcoin he currently has. Still, he supports the cryptocurrency industry and has expressed a similar affinity for Dogecoin as Elon Musk.

  1. Kanye West

Kanye West supported the most well-known cryptocurrency while he was a guest on the Joe Rogan podcast, saying that Bitcoiners “represent the genuine freedom of America.” West continued by saying that BTC builds a brand-new route that can lead to “the next frontier of civilization.” It is not yet known how much Bitcoin the American rapper has.

Honorable Mentions

Gwyneth Paltrow and Donald Glover are two more famous people that possess Bitcoin. In 2018, Gwyneth Paltrow joined the advisory board of Abra, a cryptocurrency wallet and marketplace. On the other hand, Childish Gambino, a rapper and actor best known as Donald Glover, praised Bitcoin in 2013 and wisely asked, “If everything’s going to exist online, why not Bitcoins?”


With so many well-known people betting on Bitcoin, not to mention significant businesses and institutions, the revolution is well underway. Bitcoin has worth in the eyes of the most influential people on the planet, even though it is unknown when the digital currency will actually be widely used or if and how long it can maintain this price. The nine celebrities who possess Bitcoin listed above are by no means an exhaustive list. Numerous other well-known people from all around the world are tweeting, posting, and discussing their opinions on Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency market.
