Bobby Lee, the crypto entrepreneur, the founder of BTCChina and the Ballot hardware wallet bumps into ‘John McLane’ Bruce Willis on a plane as he heads for China and starts talking Bitcoin with him.

Will Bruce Willis rescue Bitcoin?

Bobby Lee is known to be a Bitcoin pioneer. Back in 2011, he founded the BTCChina crypto exchange, which later rebranded as BTCC. His most recent business project is the Ballot crypto wallet.

This weekend, Bobby Lee turned out to be flying on the same plane as the Hollywood A-lister Bruce Willis, and sitting right next to him. Lee proudly wrote he started talking Bitcoin to ‘John McClane’.

At some point during their conversation, Lee took out a couple of hardware gold-plated Ballot crypto wallets, loaded them with 0.01 BTC each and presented those to Bruce Willis as a Christmas gift for his daughters.

Other Hollywood celebrities in crypto

Bruce Willis is not the first Hollywood actor to get into the crypto sphere recently. About this time in 2018, Gwyneth Paltrow also got involved with crypto, trying to raise awareness of Bitcoin.

This year, Bitcoin got into Hollywood and was featured in an action movie 'Crypto' starring the veteran actor Kurt Russell.

Johnny Depp also nearly made it to act John McAfee in the ‘King of the Jungle’ biopic. However, the crypto baron himself turned Depp down. Michael Keaton finally got the part, however, McAfee admitted he would have loved it to be Morgan Freeman.

Moving beyond a medium of exchange

In his earlier tweet, Burniske also predicts that holding Bitcoin as a collateral could eclipse its medium of exchange (MoE) use case.  

He even goes as far as claiming that Bitcoin could morph into an off-chain collateral for the world. 

Burniske states that Ethereum has already created a burgeoning collateral economy around it. Apart from extending its utility beyond a pure MoE, this could also drastically decrease the coin's volatility because of all DeFi use cases.
