Recently, Mexican billionaire Ricardo Salinas Pliego joined Elon Musk and several high-profile individuals in adding the Bitcoin hashtag to his Twitter bio. Salinas is one of the richest people in Mexico with a fortune of around US $ 13.2 billion and 10% of the entrepreneur’s liquid portfolio is in Bitcoin.
Ricardo Salinas Pliego is the third richest person in Mexico and in 2013 he bought BTC for US $ 200. At the time he claimed, it was the “best investment ever made.” “I want to wait another five or ten years,” he said during an interview in December 2020.
When Salinas was interviewed, he also spoke about some South American countries facing economic turmoil. “What is happening in Venezuela, in Argentina, where fiat money is collapsing, has become a scandal. It really opens your eyes to the fiat money problem, ”Salinas explained at the time. And now he’s promoting Bitcoin on Twitter.
Promotion of BTC via Twitter
The Mexican billionaire recently told the public that 10% of his liquid portfolio is in bitcoin (BTC). Salinas also talks about his love for Bitcoin on Twitter.
The next step is that now the president of the conglomerate Grupo Salinas has put the hashtag Bitcoin in his Twitter biography. In this way, Salinas would be following the list of celebrities who contribute to this trend. As many of you know, Elon Musk recently added the bitcoin hashtag to his bio and the price of BTC went up a few percentages.
Since then, a large number of well-known people have continued to add the Bitcoin hashtag to their Twitter biographies to show their support for the leading cryptocurrency. Of course, when Salinas mentioned Bitcoin on social media, some people called Salinas’s recent comment an “irresponsible comment.”
The Bitcoin hashtag in your bio, on the other hand, is a statement that you can make without much comment. So far, thanks to Elon Musk and NFL player Russell Okung, a lot of people are adding the hashtag. Among the personalities who have followed this example are Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian and Skybridge Capital’s Anthony Scaramucci.
