Former UFC fighter Ben Askren, known as “Funky” among fighters, is a big fan of cryptocurrencies and especially Bitcoin. He decided to change his nickname to promote Bitcoin. No more Funky.
Ben Askren is a legend in the boxing world. He has won dozens of fights and competitions. He made it so far that he was an Olympic wrestler. In addition, he also wrestled in the UFC league. But did you know he’s a big Bitcoin fan?
On Twitter, he changed his nickname several times to keep people calling him a new name. It is not a regional asterisk. Fighter is followed by 320,000 people, a gigantic number on Twitter.
Askren is a long-term bull and often shows its base to followers. For example, the last time he was asked about the price after halving, he simply responded with the emoticon of the moon.
His first nickname in the last week is about reducing the remuneration for each mined block. He sent several tweets under the nickname “Bitcoin Halving May 13”, reminding his 320,000 followers of the impending cryptocurrency event.
Then change the nickname to “Time for PlanB”. PlanB in this case means Bitcoin. This is a frequent link that occurs in the narrative that Bitcoin will be digital gold.
