Ex-NFL star turned crypto enthusiast and investor Ricky Williams has said that his knowledge of astrology led him to invest in the super volatile digital assets, most notably bitcoin. The sportsman, who is a jack of all trades, has predicted that a significant ‘change’ will soon take place in the universe and he’s proud to be part of that revolution.
Astrology Meets Bitcoin
Ricky Williams, the former NFL athlete who had a glorious sporting career filled with a vast array of awards, has not had any dull moments since retiring from active football. The San Diego, California born athlete, has been studying holistic medicine, astrology, yoga and a host of other endeavors.
“When I look at things, I tend to look at astrology to get insight,” he said, adding that his reading of astrological charts led him towards investing in the world’s flagship cryptocurrency, bitcoin.
Williams further explained that he got hugely interested in bitcoin when he saw that planet Uranus was about venturing into Taurus and Uranus represents “revolution; it’s about a change in the way we do things; it’s about innovation,” and Taurus takes care of “resources and finances.”
According to Williams, the footballer turned astrologer; when we combine Uranus’ power of revolution with Taurus’ focus on wealth and finance, it means that shortly, “we’re going to change the way we view and understand” finances.
Additionally, Pluto is moving through Capricorn, which he explains, “represents our structures, like banks for instance,” Williams revealed, adding:
“I think as people are starting to become disillusioned with our institutions, that things like blockchain and cryptocurrency, it’s the perfect time for them to catch fire and really change the way we do things. So, you know, I had to get a little piece of that action.”
A $50,000 Bitcoin Portfolio
With a clear vision of the future, the former athlete has invested at least $50,000 of his money into bitcoin. He also isn’t perturbed about the super volatile nature of his new portfolio. He reiterated that even if it turns out to be that he made a wrong decision about buying bitcoin, he’ll still be glad he contributed his bit to the revolution.
In his words:
“Especially with the planet Uranus and change, [it’s] always going to be volatile in the beginning. But, still, it’s more of a conscious choice to contribute to the change. If I do well, then great. If not, I’ll still feel like I did my part to contribute to things moving forward.”
Williams is absolutely right. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have shed most of the weights they gained back in 2017 due to a whole lot of fear uncertainty and doubt that has surrounded the industry.
To make matters worse, critics have not ceased doing what they know how to do best.
In the latest development, On May 8, 2018, the vice chairman of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, Charlie Munger said that trading bitcoin is worse than “trading freshly harvested baby brains,” adding “I regard the whole business as anti-social, stupid, immoral. I regard the whole thing as a combination of dementia and immorality. I think the people pushing it are a disgrace.”
Well, it’s a free world after all, and everyone is entitled to their opinions. Let the Mungers continue to monger while the price of bitcoin and other cryptos continue to climb.
