US bobsledder feels the Bitcoin rhythm and orange pills his fans



Olympic bobsledder Johnny Quinn is the latest sporting celebrity to swallow the orange pill. In a Twitter thread, he shared his best of Bitcoin (BTC) education while welcoming the Bitcoin class of 2022. 

As well as instructing his fans to digest his reading list, “no excuses. Get it done;” Quinn says that “under no circumstance do you take orders from the mainstream. They are confused.”

He backs his statement with a swathe of media reports and headlines from September 2017 onwards showing large institutional players such as Visa, JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs making a U-turn on Bitcoin.

The most potent 180-degree switch is  Jamie Dimon’s JPMorgan. From the CEO lambasting Bitcoin in 2017, the world’s largest investment bank now promotes Bitcoin as an investment vehicle:

In a word to the wise, the Olympian also suggests avoiding “moon-boys.” Typically cryptocurrency YouTubers and influencers, moon-boys encourage risky trading techniques in the pursuit of Lamborghinis; or more recently, showing off an NFT to their followers. Instead, Quinn suggests:

“Dollar cost averaging your Bitcoin position with a long time horizon (not using leverage) is the play.”

Quinn joins a budding list of Bitcoiner sports bros. From NFL stars and NBA champions taking their annual salaries in Bitcoin, to humble Bedford football (soccer) club putting “Bitcoin at its heart;” the competitive world of sports is a hotbed for Bitcoin adoption.

Quinn began tweeting about Bitcoin in early 2021, completing one of Michael Saylor’s “Bitcoin for everybody” online courses in Autumn last year. He has since become a vocal supporter of Bitcoin, while indubitably overlapping with self-promotion.

The Twitter thread by “Coach Quinn, Bitcoin Class of 2021,” was well received by the Bitcoin Twitter community, as well as his 19,000 followers. Founder of U.S.-based Swan Bitcoin, Cory Swan, retweeted the thread saying it’s a “great thread for Newcoiners!”
