Bitcoin (BTC) continues to generate great interest among tech billionaires. In his new post, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg suggested his support for Bitcoin. Only he did it in a rather surprising way.
Zuckerberg and the goats
Zuckerberg posted on Facebook pictureon which you can see … goats. He signed them: “My goats: Max and Bitcoin.”
This post sparked speculation that Zuckerberg may soon buy the first Bitcoins. It is also possible that it was a peculiar announcement of investment in cryptocurrencies from the Facebook page. Or just a joke.
Facebook and cryptocurrencies
A few weeks ago, however, the cryptocurrency market was full of speculation that Facebook would announce its investment in Bitcoin. While this has not turned out to be true, the latest post by the portal’s founder will likely be the source of new rumors.
In a way, Facebook has been operating on the cryptocurrency technology market since 2018. The company wanted to launch, for example, its own digital currency – Libra (now Diem). Unfortunately, its politicians and officials stood in the way.
In any case, Zuckerberg’s latest post has been welcomed by some players in the cryptocurrency industry. Skybridge Capital founder Anthony Scaramucci wrote on Twitter:
I knew Mark Zuckerberg would become a Bitcoiner when he hired David Marcus of PayPal to run the crypto business on Facebook. It’s been a long and winding road, but welcome to the world of Bitcoin. Great, Zuck and David. I’m excited about what will happen next.
Other tech giants such as Elon Musk and Jack Dorsey and their companies have long since openly endorsed Bitcoin.
In February 2021, Tesla announced an investment of $ 1.5 billion in Bitcoin. Square Dorsey, on the other hand, has invested over $ 150 million in investments in BTC in the last few months.
Musk is also known to be a huge fan of DogeCoin, a cryptocurrency meme. However, he recently warned his Twitter followers not to invest in cryptocurrencies too boldly. In his opinion, people “They should not invest their life savings in any cryptocurrency.”
