Gwyneth Paltrow, the Oscar-winning actress revealed through Twitter a partnership with the Cash App app. Known for her role in Iron Man and other MCU Universe films, she will distribute $500,000 in Bitcoin or about 10 bitcoins to users of the social network. To participate, users just need to follow Cash App’s Twitter and post the cashtag with a comment.

The 1999 Oscar-winning actress has now joined NFL stars Aaron Rodgers and Odell Beckham, as well as rapper Megan Thee Stallion on the list of celebrities who partnered with CashApp to give Bitcoins to fans.

“I’ve long been optimistic about the idea of ​​democratizing Bitcoin and making it easier to send to friends and family.” she said, adding that distributing the digital asset to fans is an attempt to “do something special for the community and enable them to learn more about cryptocurrencies.”

Earlier this month, the actress was also in the news by investing in Bitcoin mining company TeraWulf.

Cash App

Cash App is an app that allows users to send money and buy Bitcoin. It is owned by Block, formerly Square, a payments company founded by Jack Dorsey, the founder of Twitter.

The app recently launched a gifts feature that allows users to send bitcoins and shares to anyone. To receive the gift, the sender does not need to have funds in bitcoin or shares and it is “as easy as sending money”.

Talking about his partnership with Cash App to make Bitcoin more “affordable,” Paltrow emphasized that he wants to reach out to his followers. Once participants are introduced to the platform, the actress feels they can enter the cryptocurrency market.

“I’m really working to bring more women, not just into the conversation, but into the senior management of these Web3 companies. I think it’s a good way to create a cultural conversation around “what do I do with Bitcoin?” and I hope that starts a deeper conversation.”

Gwyneth Paltrow

In a recent interview, the actress revealed that she heard about bitcoin for the first time on an Apple TV TV show. The actress noticed the lack of participation of women in the market and decided to read more about the subject.

After understanding Bitcoin and blockchain technology, she became an investor in a mining company with a “sustainable” approach.

“(I have) been interested in the space in various ways and trying to bring everyone but (mostly) the women, because when I started talking about it with my friends, they didn’t feel able to ask the questions or understand. We are all learning at the same time.”
