On Monday, Gwyneth Paltrow, the most recent convert to cryptocurrency, tweeted a link to an article posted on her company’s site. The text is titled “The Basics of Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency.”

The new platform will supposedly link users’ credit cards with crypto wallets through a special account. Thus, customers will be able to use almost 30 top coins, including BTC, ETH, LTC, and XRP.

Reportedly, Paltrow herself initiated this collaboration after she had seen a presentation of this company in a public event. It is not known whether her payment for the participation will be either in a fiat currency or in the native coin of Abra.

McAfee kicks off “Captain Jack Sparrow”

As for other actors from Hollywood, the recent wave of adding Blockchain and crypto into movie scripts has covered them, too. In summer, U.Today reported that Johnny Depp and Kurt Russell were preparing to star in two films to do with crypto.

The star of the Pirates of the Caribbean, Johnny Depp, was offered to play the role of John McAfee in his biopic “King of the Jungle.” However, recently he tweeted that “Captain Jack Sparrow” is not good enough to express the nuances of McAfee’s character on the screen.
