To give just a few examples: More and more institutional investors and hedge funds, such as Paul Tudor Jones recently, are investing in Bitcoin, the writer J.K. Rowling started a Twitter firework display over BTC last week, the halving has increased public interest and as we reported this morning, online shops based on Shopify can now pay with cryptocurrencies like BTC. But that’s not all: as an Olympic professional athlete from the USA announced to her Twitter fans yesterday, she has now also invested in BTC.

She can be considered one of the most successful women soccer players, won Olympic gold 3 times with the US national team and became world champion twice.
