Rapper Kanye West has been tipped as the next celebrity to invest heavily into Bitcoin.
There have been predictions that the hip-hop mogul will purchase at least $100m worth of the cryptocurrency.
But he is not alone – the world’s man, Amazon Chair Jeff Bezos, who is estimated to be worth US$183 billion, is also expected to make a heavy investment into bitcoins, to make the price of the cryptocurrency soar.
Online specialist betting site, Unikm predicts that as the big names enter the Bitcoin space, the price of crypto will most likely hit US$100,000 by the end of 2021.
“The chance of Bitcoin reaching $100,000 at the end of 2021 has increased from 42% last week to 46% this week with experts anticipating another price surge,” a Unikrn spokesman reportedly said.
“Elon Musk’s investment of $1.5billion into Bitcoin earlier this year helped raise its value and other celebrities such as Kanye West, at 2/1, and Jeff Bezos, at 5/2, are the current favourites to copy the tech entrepreneur’s latest venture,” they added.
Meanwhile, ex-wife of Kanye West and reality TV star Kim Kardashian is also expected to join the list of celebrities saving in bitcoins.
Moreover, the bookies odds on the celebrity most likely to buy at least$100million worth of Bitcoin in 2021 are as follows:
Kanye West – 2/1
Jeff Bezos – 5/2
Bill Gates – 3/1
Lebron James – 6/1
