More celebrities, athletes, and brands are getting involved with what used to be mostly tech space as the use of cryptocurrencies continues to rise.
Ryan Reynolds discussed his thoughts on cryptocurrencies while speaking with Emily Chang.
Reynolds stated that he sees value in the conversation around digital assets and that companies are doing an excellent job of making it safer while bringing it to the rest of the world.
“I do see value in the conversation that we’re having right now. I think companies are doing a good job of bringing it into a sort of safer more mainstream light.
Ryan Reynolds admits to having doubts about the cryptocurrencies
It is worth mentioning that the Hollywood star understands why some people are wary of it, but he believes it is emerging as a big deal in the financial industry.
“I mean 90% of the word crypto is crypto so you know I see why certain folks might be put off or intimidated by it. But I think it’s emerging as a huge player. I mean it’s been emerging for a long time. It’s a huge player so I’m not surprised.”
With the increasing popularity of cryptocurrencies, more and more high-profile individuals are using it to purchase and sell real estate or to get their salaries.
Tony Buzbee, a well-known lawyer, stated earlier this month that he is accepting the virtual currency for his $27 million property in Houston, while Francis Ngannou, a UFC fighter, accepted the virtual currency for his bout purse in January.
