Advertisers and public relations professionals in the booming cryptocurrency industry have taken notice of the tried-and-true method of using celebrities to promote their products and services, as multiple high-profile athletes, entertainers, and actors have been hired by various crypto-companies in recent years to hype up their products and services. However, regardless of how enticing and sincere celebrity endorsements appear to be, all aspiring crypto-investors should exercise caution, as celebrities may not always have their fans’ best interests in mind, whether they’re endorsing a hair gel or an ICO.
