Cryptocurrency enthusiasts welcomed Kardashian’s decision to move to Bitcoin judging by the comments made on social media platforms. If celebrities began endorsing digitized assets, it could mean a bullish run for Bitcoin some users opine.

Captain_TomAN94, a Redditor remarked:

“Not sure I think too highly of that family, but this actually is a big deal in some regards. Any mega-celebrity (especially ones with actual business empires) that talks about Bitcoin are bound to add a decent amount of new HODLR’s. Even more important is that she actually showed Bitcoin, and not some shit coin or ICO scam.”

Another Redditor, TerminalSiesta added:

“Everything Kardashian sucks ass, but a lot of her fans use her as a barometer for what’s fashionable or cool. It’s retarded, but that’s just the way it is. Not only that, but a large percentage of her followers, I would bet, have never heard of bitcoin, so it’s a net positive, I think.”

Redditor, Jps300 says:

“Do you know how many people blindly make consumer decisions based on the Kardashians? This is the exact sort of publicity bitcoin needs. People don’t care about economics. They care about what’s popular.”

Other cryptocurrency aficionados believe that since Kardashian’s ‘114 million’ or so followers are mostly teenagers who will in all probability educate themselves on blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, they are an audience that the cryptocurrency world needs.

Outfitbundle, a Twitter user commented:

“Her reach is sizeable. Can’t be a bad thing.”

Another Twitterati, Iamsteviep added:

“This will be interesting to watch.”

Twitter user StormWatchGirl says:

“@LandM_Marius Check it out, Marius, @KimKardashian and @kanyewest are ready to get into Bitcoin, time to decentralize!!”
