J.K Rowling Tries To Understand The Magical World Of Bitcoin

Harry Potter author, J.K Rowling tried her very best to understand the magical world of Bitcoin. It started off as a simple request from a journalist to then very quickly making headlines. Suddenly, everyone wanted a piece of this news.

A journalist expressed on Twitter that if the author had replied to her, she would “die of happiness”. To her surprise, Rowling responded “I don’t understand bitcoin. Please explain it to me”. The author then received an influx of responses, some of which left her completely muddled.

She expressed, “I know you mean to help, but full disclosure: I’m only allowing myself alcohol at weekends during this lockdown and I’m on my fourth very strong Old Fashioned and honestly, you might as well send me a scroll written in Sanskrit.”

“God bless every single one of you now earnestly explaining bitcoin to me as though I’ll grasp it if you break it down properly. Things like this are white noise to me. I cannot and will not ever understand Bitcoin, but I love you for thinking that I can or will.” she added.

The tweet from Rowling even saw the likes of Tesla owner Elon Musk, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao, Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin, and The Bitcoin Man Herbert Sim, all ‘ weighing in on the conversation.

In response to Rowling’s tweet saying, “People are now explaining Bitcoin to me, and honestly, it’s blah blah blah collectibles (My Little Pony?) blah blah blah computers (got one of those) blah blah blah crypto (sounds creepy) blah blah blah understand the risk (I don’t, though.)”  Musk responded “Pretty much, although massive currency issuance by govt central banks is making Bitcoin Internet money look solid by comparison”. Agreeing to what Musk had to say, Zhao responded “Elon gets it”.

It’s safe to say that Rowling would be sticking to Gringotts Bank for now.

In case you missed it, Herbert Sim ‘The Bitcoin Man’ did a whole explanation of Bitcoin, and even an illustration to go along with – featuring Harry Potter characters – Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson.
