Legendary musician Gene Klein, known as Gene Simmons in professional circles, has taken to Twitter to mention his Bitcoin holdings again and confirm his bullish bet on the flagship cryptocurrency.

"Bitcoin has been very good to me"

In a recent tweet, the frontman of the legendary rock band KISS wrote that, after purchasing Bitcoin several months ago (to the tune of seven digits), BTC has been "very good" to him.

The world's largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization value started ascending from the $10,000 level and soared to a new all-time high in early January. Several other ATHs followed, with the most recent one on Monday of last week when Bitcoin skyrocketed to touch $48,000 briefly.

The musician shared his bet that Bitcoin is not going to stop at "recent record-breaking records."
