Australian comic Jim Jefferies has amassed a bigger stack of Bitcoin than billionaire Elon Musk.
In a June 30 episode of Jefferies’ podcast I Don’t Know About That, the comic revealed to “Invest Diva” Kiana Danial that he was barely extra knowledgeable about cryptocurrency than his comedy group apparently knew — his podcast workers sometimes choose matters the comic has little or no data of.
“I have one Bitcoin,” Jefferies mentioned. “I bought it as a bit of a laugh just on the Robinhood app just to see what this crypto is all about.”
The comic mentioned he at the moment owns $9,612 “worth of a Bitcoin” however Danial decided Jefferies hadn’t but transferred his token to a pockets — and naturally ‘not your keys, not your Bitcoin’.
The buy of 1 BTC makes him richer in Bitcoin phrases than tech billionaire Elon Musk, who confirmed in May that his Bitcoin holdings have been nonetheless at a measly 0.25 BTC — $2,347 on the time of writing.
Jefferies’ web value is estimated near $9 million, that means his crypto funding makes up simply 0.1% of his property — rather less than billionaire Paul Tudor Jones’ 1%.
Hilarious grasp of crypto
As the podcast is meant to be each instructional and entertaining, Jefferies listened to Danial clarify some fundamental crypto phrases and historical past.
When the topic of Satoshi Nakamoto got here up, the comic shortly responded:
“Everyone knows who he is — two Michelin stars, best tuna in town.”
Cold storage was one other comedic detour:
“I’m going to buy some Bitcoins, and I’m gonna put my wallet in the fridge.”
Critical of ‘finance expert’
Comments on Jefferies’ data have been blended, however many members of Crypto Twitter have been important of Danial’s clarification of blockchain and cryptocurrency.
“That’s what you need: someone who doesn’t understand a subject to a bunch of people who have never heard of it,” mentioned Twitter person Westy447. “Like a cat trying to explain cycling to fish.”
Podcaster Marty Bent even supplied to be a alternative for Danial after one other person introduced her efficiency to his consideration: “The so-called expert they had on was a total disaster. I would love Jim Jefferies to come on your show, so he can learn about Bitcoin the right way.”
Jefferies is the second main comic to specific an curiosity in cryptocurrency over a podcast in per week. Cointelegraph reported on July 2 that Anthony Pompliano had efficiently satisfied comic Bill Burr to put money into Bitcoin.
