Barbie’s Ken and Bitcoin – An Unlikely Connection
Australian actress Margot Robbie, known for her upcoming role in the new Barbie movie, has sparked a range of reactions within the crypto community. Her comments link discussions about Bitcoin to Barbie’s fictional partner, Ken.
Crypto Twitter Reacts
Over the last day, the crypto Twitter community, including MicroStrategy’s CEO, Michael Saylor, and social media influencer Layah Heilpern, reacted to Robbie’s Bitcoin remarks made during a recent Fandango interview.
According to Robbie, Bitcoin conversations between her husband, Tom Ackerley, and TV producer David Heyman, brought to mind Ken’s character, as played by Ryan Gosling in the Barbie movie.
Big Ken Energy and Bitcoin
Prominent crypto figures including Saylor and Girl Gone Crypto joined in sharing their views on Robbie’s intriguing comparison. Saylor’s take on it was that Bitcoin indeed holds “Big Ken Energy”.
Mixed Interpretations of ‘Ken Energy’
Layah Heilpern, however, interpreted Robbie’s remarks as a veiled criticism of men discussing Bitcoin, suggesting that they come off as “weak and pathetic”.
Mark Travers, a leading psychologist, saw ‘Ken Energy’ as a positive attribute, indicative of someone who challenges traditional gender norms and adapts to different situations.
A Sense of Optimism in Crypto
Despite the varying interpretations, some in the crypto world, such as Steven Lubka, Swan Bitcoin’s managing director, saw Robbie’s comments as a positive signal for the community.
Legal Actions Against Celebrities Involved in Crypto
Robbie’s comments come at a time when some celebrities face legal repercussions for promoting cryptocurrencies, including NBA Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler and YouTubers Ben Armstrong and Graham Stephan.
With Margot Robbie’s neutral and cautious stance, it appears the actress avoids falling into a similar controversy.
