Another professional singer’s heart was caught by Bitcoin.
Gene Simmons, the co-founder and front-man for the 70’s rock band Kiss, is a fan of bitcoin, according to a new interview.
Simmons revealed his interest in an interview with TheStreet, during which he said he views the cryptocurrency primarily as an investment that fits into his wider portfolio. Kiss, formed in 1973, is known for hit songs like “Rock And Roll All Nite” and “Detroit Rock City.”
“I am interested in bitcoin, but only as a piece of the [investment] puzzle,” he said, according to the publication.
Though he didn’t go into much further detail on his investment strategy around cryptocurrencies, he argued in the interview that buying into an asset like bitcoin should be one part of that “puzzle”.
“Anybody that goes to Las Vegas and bets all their money on 35-black, [it’s] an insane idea,” he said, later adding: “Coins? Great. Real estate? Great.”
“Kiss coins? Sure, you can talk me into it,” he said.
