Twitter Crypto Digest

British actress and Game of Thrones lead, Maisie Williams has made a few tweets on Bitcoin this week. When celebrities start talking, the FOMO is about to really kick in, so watch out and keep calm.

Marketing agency BDCenterDigital presented a report on Crypto Twitter influencers. In it, they studied almost a hundred accounts to determine if they really can influence the prices of the assets they are discussing on Twitter. Long story short, their findings show that influencers are more likely to follow the sentiment than actively shape it. Mentions tend to follow the price: the higher the price, the more often an asset is talked about on Twitter.

Another week, another highlight from CNBC. In this interview, the hosts interviewed soon to be ex-chairman of SEC, Jay Clayton. In the video, he admits the impact Bitcoin has on the economy, calling it “a payment mechanism and store of value”. Clayton took his seat in 2017, during the previous Bitcoin rally, and as 2020 comes to a close, he might be leaving during another one.
