After exposing its biggest opponents, today we shift gears and want to show you a list of the people and institutions that have endorsed cryptocurrency since the beginning. After all, Bitcoin has a huge fan base and these next 11 popular advocates are just some of them.

1. Paul Graham

Paul Graham is currently the third major technology investor to show support for Bitcoin. He is one of the most respected and influential Bitcoin advocates since the early stage of digital currency history.

2. The German Ministry of Finance


Germany took a lot of  steps to help cryptocurrency grow so far, the last one being the new rule that says that Bitcoin is “private money” and a “currency unit”.

3. Frank Schäffler

It’s impossible to speak about Germany and ignore the name Frank Schäffler. The well-known member of the parliament’s Finance Committee makes everything he can to promote his beloved cryptocurrency.

4. Jason Calacanis

The American Internet entrepreneur and blogger was one of the first persons talking about Bitcoin on the web, spreading the word and raising awareness. “We are 100% certain that governments will start banning Bitcoins in the next 12 to 18 months”, he wrote in 2011.

5. Wikileaks

7. Nassim Nicholas Taleb

This Lebanese American essayist, scholar and statistician – who always focused his work on problems of randomness, probability and uncertainty – is a major Bitcoin supporter. In the beginning of the year he wrote on Reddit: “Bitcoin is the beginning of something great: a currency without a government, something necessary and imperative”.

8. David Friedman

The well-known economist is one of the people that has tried to raise awareness about Bitcoin by explaining it to the people in simple terms, like he did in this analysis.

9. Ashton Kutcher

The famous Hollywood actor surrendered himself to the power of Bitcoin back in May, when he announced he was investing in cryptocurrency. At the time, he said “Bitcoins are obviously becoming more and more relevant (…) The biggest thing with Bitcoin is not Bitcoin itself, but what does that decentralized technology really do?”.

10. Kevin Rose

Kevin Rose mod

Kevin Rose is a known cryptocurrency supporter from the field of finance. “Purchased a few more Bitcoins at $95 yesterday… Something super addicting about Bitcoin”, he twitted back in May.

11. Kevin O’Leary

Kevin O'leary mod

The business investment banker Kevin O’Leary, from O’Leary Funds, showed recently how much he likes Bitcoins, saying that the growth of the cryptocurrency made it earn a place among the world currencies.

Having delved into futures trading in the past, my intrigue in financial, economic, and political affairs eventually led me to a striking realization: the current debt-based fiat system is fundamentally flawed. This revelation prompted me to explore alternative avenues, including investments in gold and, since early 2013, Bitcoin. While not extensively tech-savvy, I've immersed myself in Bitcoin through dedicated study, persistent questioning, hands-on experience with ecommerce and marketing ventures, and my stint as a journalist. Writing has always been a passion of mine, and presently, I'm focused on crafting informative guides to shed light on the myriad advantages of Bitcoin, aiming to empower others to navigate the dynamic realm of digital currencies.

  1. Helicopter Ben Bernanke has created more bitcoin advocates than anybody with his Zero Interest Rate Policy (ZIRP), Quantitative Easing, and bailouts (reward the losers, punish the successful). Sort of kizmit that bitcoin emerged in this environment. Thanks, Ben, if not for you, perhaps less of a rogue fractional reserve banking could have chugged along for an extra decade and obscured cryptocurrencies.

  2. The logo posted under German ‘Ministry of Finance’ is not correct. It refers to the German ‘Ministry of Health’.
