PewDiePie mocks Bitconnect endorsers

Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg widely known as PewDiePie, a streamer and YouTube blogger with 60 million subscribers, partly thanks to whom this way of expressing yourself online has become popular, has recently decided to make a video out of the fail of BitConnect. His jokes were aimed at those people who supported the pyramid scheme on YouTube before its unlawfulness became obvious for everybody.

One might note that this video is coming out late due to the fact that the fall of BitConnect happened almost a month ago and now it’s not the event everybody actively discussed in the social media.

This is not the first time when Youtubers are engaging with the cryptocurrency world. Another video blogger Cr1tikal (recently hit 2 million subscribers), mostly known for obscene humor and emotionless voice in every occasion also talked about cryptocurrency investments. In short, he correctly noted that one should not trust advices from only one source and did not recommend to invest considerable sums the losing of which might hurt.

And while some may still doubt the expertise of Youtubers, their influence among the millennials or younger generation is undoubtful. And, as noted by professional market members, the younger generation is one of the biggest groups investing in cryptocurrency.
