Twitter Crypto Digest

Nifty Gateway, the Gemini-backed blockchain auction house, has seen one of its largest purchases this week. The record $777,777 last-minute bid on a work of digital artist Mike Winkelmann, known as Beeple, has brought the value of his entire collection to over $3.5 million.

Every week, we are seeing more news about large institutional investors pouring capital into Bitcoin. But seeing retail famous investors, like Shaan Puri, CEO of Twitch, moving as much as 25% of their net worth into BTC is not less satisfying for all holders.

CashApp and Bitcoin have gained a prominent ambassador in Meghan Thee Stallion, up-and-coming rapper star. The other day, she was giving away one million USD in Bitcoin. The tweet collected about 200 hundred replies. Awareness raised successfully! Even though each lucky user got 50,000 sats, which was around $11 at the time.

Tweets that precede legendary moments. Maybe even Michael could not have guessed that his estimate would be moderate today?

Influencer of the Week

Mr. Anderson’s Twitter account is a must-follow for any Bitcoin enthusiast. He often provides trading insights with technical analysis and shares news and opinions from influential voices. There is no post that feels as if it was not made by a sincere enthusiast.
