Today, in a segment highly viewed on national TV, famous hostess Ellen DeGeneres in her show “Ellen” touched the bitcoin subject with a bit of humor, as she always does. She said that bitcoin was like a digital baby goat that you want to pet, but you cannot touch since it is not there.
Ellen then got serious and stated that bitcoin was a decentralized digital asset and that she had learned just a little bit about it. “So if it is a currency that we can’t touch, where we will store it? In a digital purse”, she joked; but then said that it was the same principle for a digital wallet.
Then she touched bitcoin as a means of investing, saying that bitcoin was able only to have two values: 20k or nothing. So it can make you rich or have you ruined. Lastly, she said that even if bitcoin can make you rich, she still would prefer a baby goat.
Jokes aside, it is important for bitcoin to be featured in public segments like the one described, even in a humorous manner for people to understand the reaches and applications of cryptocurrency in the present and in the future, and the opportunities that it presents as a risky but highly profitable investment. Maybe following this trend, we will see more bitcoin treatment on popular TV shows in the future.
