Neil Patrick Harris Is a Big Crypto Fan
Harris is well known for playing lead roles in television programs such as “How I Met Your Mother” and “Doogie Howser, M.D.” However, what many do not know about the young star is that he is an avid crypto trader and investor. He entered the bitcoin space relatively early and has spent the last few years watching his investment grow into something he never thought possible.
In a recent interview, he states:
I remember when I first heard about bitcoin. Like most people, I did not fully understand it but at the time, the price of bitcoin was so low I figured I could give it a shot without risking too much. Now, my investment has grown tremendously and multiplied in value. Even major corporations and traditional investors are all jumping on the bandwagon. My goal is to let everyone know how easy and accessible it is to invest in cryptocurrency and join the future of finance.
Harris was chosen by Coin Flip to represent the company specifically because of his story. The man knew virtually nothing about cryptocurrency but did not wait for some expert to come out and give him all the details. He took the necessary time to research the industry and learn about it himself. The goal of the company is to now show everyone just how easy it is to invest in digital assets and how accessible they are to everyone.
The actor expressed his thoughts on crypto, saying that it is the future of finance and will one day dominate all payment routes. He states:
Cryptocurrency is the future of how we shop, invest and do business, but it can also be incredibly technical and intimidating. I prefer my transactions to be simple and to the point. It is why I joined forces with Coin Flip. Their ATMs make it so anyone can turn their cash into a significant investment opportunity with a great return.
Coin Flip is a company that takes customer privacy seriously, working under what is known as the Bank Secrecy Act. It is also registered as a money services business (MSB) and as a money transmitter in specific states. Ben Weiss – the CEO of the company – says that he is on a mission to have 5,000 individual machines set up throughout America by the end of 2021.
Opening the Door to All Investors
Regarding the firm’s partnership with Harris, Weiss further commented:
We partnered with Neil Patrick Harris who is well known and approachable and lowers the perceived bar for entry into the space.
