Jim Jefferies, an Australian-American stand-up comedian, revealed that he had bought 1 BTC for $10,000 on Robinhood trading platform just for fun.
In a June 30 episode of Jefferies’ podcast, I Don’t Know About That, Jim revealed that he bought bitcoin as a bit of a laugh just to see what this crypto is all about. The comic said he currently owns $9,612 “worth of a Bitcoin.”
In this way, Jim Jefferies owns more bitcoin than Elon Musk, who earlier told that his Bitcoin holdings were still at a measly 0.25 BTC — $2,347 at the time of writing.
Bitcoin has been getting mainstream exposure over the last few years as celebrities and mainstream platforms continue to express their interest in the crypto phenomena. Bitcoin is seen as a synonym to the financial freedom of people and taking financial power from the government and giving it back to the people.
