Big Mainstream Exposure of Cryptocurrencies
Ashton Kutcher, known for his comedic appearances on Television series “That 70s Show” and other silver screen performances, donated $4 Million worth of Ripple tokens (XRP) to Ellen Degeneres’s wildlife charity
“We can actually transfer [the donation] into Rwandan francs right now, right here, and all we have to do is push this button and it’s in your account,” Kutcher said.
Ripple is the number 3 crypto in the world currently, catering to banks and the SWIFT system as a cheaper and more efficient solution. Kutcher has been actively investing his money with his own firm. They were early investors in Airbnb, investing $2.5 Million. That position is worth close to $40 Million now. He is an avid blockchain enthusiast who sees it’s future application across many societal structures.
This type of mainstream media attention is huge. Ellen has a massive viewership.
