Youtube superstar and rapper KSI, also known as JJ, says he is “really into crypto.” Emphasizing that “Bitcoin is the future,” he said a lot of people do not understand that crypto “is a long-haul thing.”
KSI Is ‘Really Into Crypto’
Famed rapper and popular Youtuber KSI talked about bitcoin and cryptocurrency in an interview with GQ magazine published Friday.
KSI, whose real name is Olajide Olayinka Williams Olatunji, is also known as JJ. He was ranked second by The Sunday Times in its list of the top 100 U.K. influencers in 2019. He is also part of the British Youtube group known as the Sidemen.
Responding to a question about the first thing he would do if he were prime minister, KSI said:
I’d give everyone £100 worth of bitcoin – like a bitcoin stimulus package for all. I’m really into crypto. I think Bitcoin is the future.
“It’s definitely going to be long term, but in ten years’ time, people who invested will be laughing,” he added.
KSI proceeded to compare bitcoin to fiat money. “Just look at how money is inflationary compared to bitcoin, which isn’t. There’s a set amount – you can’t increase the amount of bitcoin and that has value,” he emphasized, elaborating:
I feel like a lot of people are not really seeing that. They’re trying to look for quick money like, ‘Oh, I want to get in and out.’ This is a long-haul thing and I’m here for the journey.
Last month, he shared the story of how he made millions of pounds investing in cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin, and “lost it all” when the crypto market “crashed.” Nonetheless, he still believes that “eventually you’re going to get a $100,000 bitcoin, a $500,000 bitcoin, and a $1 million bitcoin. It’s going to happen.”
