Celebrities are gradually picking interest in Bitcoin (BTC) and the emerging digital currency market in general.

During an interview with Vanity Fair, a famous American rapper, Snoop Dogg, formally known as Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., endorsed BTC, adding that he believes in its technology. He also disclosed his interest in the booming non-fungible token (NFT) market as he prepares to issue one on the Crypto.com NFT platform.

Bitcoin is “here to stay”

Snoop Dogg said he believes in Bitcoin “one hundred” percent. According to him, the coronavirus pandemic helped accelerate more interest in the cryptocurrency, and it wasn’t a fad.

I believe in it. I believe in the technology and I believe in the global connection it creates. I’m not too caught up in the value of the coin, because I’ve been around long enough to see things go up and go down, and I know it’s here to stay.

I am excited about it, ya dig? I’m happy to participate in the movement. I’m definitely gonna bring more attention to the game. Cut me in, or cut it out.
