In response to a tweet from Cameron Winklevoss, co-founder of Crypto Exchange Gemini, Rock star Gene Simmons said he plans to make Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) more accessible.
“It’s easier to buy Bitcoin and Ether when you’re already on the old system.”, said Winklevoss in a September 15 tweet that sums up a fairly lengthy thread dealing with racial prejudice, cryptocurrencies, and decentralized funding. “If you don’t have a bank account, it’s difficult to fund cryptocurrencies.”He noted, adding, “We have to change that.”
Retweeting Commenting on Sept. 15, Simmons, the singer and co-founder of Kiss, a hit rock band, cryptically said:
“I will. I am.”
The puzzling comment has certainly left the market wondering what exactly Simmons meant. Cointelegraph reached out to Simmons for more details, but received no response at the time of going to press. This article will be updated accordingly when we receive a response.
This isn’t the first time Simmons has pointed to the greatest commodity in cryptocurrencies. Simmons mentioned his positive attitude towards Bitcoin in September 2017. “I’m interested in Bitcoin, but only as part of the puzzle.

Street published his interview with Simmons on September 15, 2017, exactly three years before his current response to Cameron Winklevoss.
Bitcoin has also received feedback from other top personalities in 2020, such as Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, although the author has expressed considerable confusion about the asset.
