Celebrity endorsement of cryptocurrencies is nothing new. However, outside of the hype, such endorsements represent the mainstreaming of crypto as valuable and legitimate assets. One of the more notable celebrities in the crypto space is Claudio Miguel Pizzaro.
While most young football fans may not know him, he is one of the most respected names in the sport. He was so respected that the Peruvian national was given nationality by both Germany and Italy. Though he is now retired, Pizzaro is a man of means, and it is said a considerable proportion of his networrth comes from an investment in Bitcoin.
Rumor mills have it that Pizzaro is an investor in a technology called Bitcoin Rush. While this is yet to be confirmed, if it is true, it is a big deal. The Bitcoin Rush technology uses artificial intelligence and a complex algorithm to scan the entire crypto market for trading opportunities. If such opportunities exist, then the investor acts on them to make money. The technology is also easy to use, and since the whole process is automated, the investor does not need to spend more than 20 minutes a day looking at the market to achieve the profit levels they desire.
Regardless of whether Pizzaro is invested in Bitcoin Rush or not, the fact is that star footballers are adopting cryptocurrencies fast. Some of the big names that have a hand in rising crypto startups include Lionel Messi, Luiz Suarez. These are people with millions of followers on social media, and their crypto plays could sway their fans to follow suit.
