The meteoric rise of Bitcoin’s value in 2017 was enough to bring it into mainstream consciousness – but people are clamoring to get on the Blockchain and cryptocurrency train. That has culminated in a number of weird and wonderful advertising campaigns, featuring some interesting celebrities and big businesses, all vying to promote and capitalize on the crypto craze that is sweeping the world. Early adopters of Bitcoin have become prominent figures in the industry, but actors, musicians and scamsters have all played their part in a fascinating few years of marketing and advertising drives in the space.
