Kiss front man Gene Simmons suggests he’s working to make crypto more accessible

Kiss front man Gene Simmons suggests hes working to make

Responding to a tweet from Cameron Winklevoss, co-founder of the Gemini crypto exchange, rock star Gene Simmons said he plans to make Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) more easily accessible. 

“It’s easier to buy Bitcoin and Ether if you are already in the old system,” Winklevoss said in a Sept. 15 tweet, summing up a rather long thread addressing racial bias, crypto and decentralized finance. “If you don’t have a bank account, it’s hard to get funds into crypto,” he noted, adding: “We need to change this.”

Retweeting the post with a comment on Sept. 15, Simmons, the headline vocalist and co-founder of Kiss, a hit rock band, said cryptically:

“I will. I am.”

The puzzling comment has surely left the market wondering what exactly Simmons meant. Cointelegraph reached out to Simmons for additional details, but received no response as of press time. This article will be updated accordingly should a response come in.  

This is not the first occasion on which Simmons has referenced crypto’s largest asset. Simmons mentioned his positive view of Bitcoin in Sept. 2017. “I am interested in Bitcoin, but only as a piece of the [investment] puzzle,” the celebrity explained to The Street during an interview three years ago. 

The street published its interview with Simmons on Sept. 15, 2017 — exactly three years prior to his present-day response to Cameron Winklevoss. 

Bitcoin has garnered comments from other mainstream figures in 2020 as well, such as Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, although the writer expressed significant confusion about the asset.
