Rick Ross, a popular American hip-hop singer, recently mocked cryptocurrency investors in a viral video, claiming that he does not think they are wealthy.
According to the Maybach Music Group CEO, he is skeptical that these online crypto proponents are generating money from investing in digital assets and the metaverse since they do not flaunt their wealth.
He requested that crypto experts show him their fortunes to prove it. He stated,
“That’s the thing about the boss, the metaverse, crypto, y’all getting so much money, where you at? Show us. And I don’t mean, ‘Oh, I’m trying to get money.’ Man, I got a lot of money. I don’t need that fake money.”
Ross went on to say that he wants some of the crypto’s biggest personalities to show him proof of their money-making activities. He continued,
“Show my homies what the metaverse is about. One of y’all big crypto dudes, gurus, crypto picture-takers, step up and say, ‘This is what we are going to do, Rozay.’ Where ya at? All that fake-rich money, where’s it at?”
Ross’ video elicited a range of emotions. While some Twitter users stated that Ross was correct to call out crypto investors, crypto supporters pointed out that true crypto millionaires do not flaunt their riches or purchase flashy jewelry.
According to one user, he met a man last week who had Rick Ross’s entire net worth in a single metamask wallet.
Most of the crypto billionaires mentioned by Ross are more inclined to invest in high-value NFTs rather than pricey jewelry.
CZ, the CEO of Binance, has a net worth of $65 billion and is one of crypto’s wealthiest persons. With a net worth of $24 billion, he is closely followed by Sam Bankman-Fried, the CEO of FTX.
Brian Armstrong, the CEO of Coinbase, is another noteworthy crypto millionaire, with a net worth of $6.6 billion. Armstrong just spent $133 million on a Bel-Air house, one of the city’s most expensive real estate deals to date.
Surprisingly, several of these billionaires, such as Changpeng Zhao and Sam Bankman-Fried, have said that they want to give away up to 99 percent of their fortune in the end.
