Johnny Depp to portray Ripple (XRP) multimillionaire Matthew Mellon in a biopic

Published

Ripple XRP

We can all agree that in the crypto world, in a manner of speaking, nothing seems to be more ambitioned and desired than the validation of the ‘real world’. In fact, it results notable how certain cryptocurrencies in the market such as Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), or even Tron (TRX), are constantly in the seek of building up this sort of ‘bridge’ to diminish the friction that several cryptos experience when it comes to getting to the masses, one of the main issues that the sector still needs to work on.

However, it is precisely in terms of validation that the crypto world would be surprised (and very happy) with the encouraging news that one of the greatest artists of the seventh art, Johnny Depp, maybe playing the crypto-related multimillionaire Matthew Mellon in an upcoming biopic that will show the life of the businessman and his relation with the crypto world. Hollywood meets the crypto world sounds so fascinating, right? Let’s see all the details behind this.

Matthew Mellon life and investments

Matthew Mellon was a businessman who was born in New York City in January of 1964, he was related to the Drexel University and the Carnegie Mellon University, both of which are campuses founded by his family. In this matter, a total worth of $25 million was inherited by him at the age of 21, money that later was used to make several investments among which the most remarkable one was the $2 million that he invested in Ripple’s XRP, a move that granted him with the title of ‘billionaire’.

Mellon obtained a profit of $1 billion dollars with the third largest cryptocurrency of the market, the infamous crypto created by Ripple Labs. Let’s recall that the XRP token saw incredibly positive changes in its prices once it was introduced in the market, the specific time in which Mellon decided to place his bets on the crypto.

In regards to his life, not everything was rosy for the businessman. In fact, he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and he was known as well to be involved with drugs and alcohol problems, one of the reasons that took him to rehabilitation clinics more than once. He was married twice, being his first wife Tamara Mellon, and the second, the daughter of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., who was his partner by the time of his death on April 16th in Cancun, Mexico.

He was supposed to get a treatment for an OxyContin addiction when he encountered death in a hotel room after suffering a heart attack produced by the consumption of Ayahuasca, an indigenous natural drug used in religious rituals.

Comments on the XRP billionaire biopic

Nothing has been confirmed yet regarding the actual possibility of the biopic. However, in accordance to the news entertainment portal Page six, the Hollywood star Johnny Depp said to be interested in playing the role of Mellon in a movie inspired by his life.

For its part, Mellon’s family hasn’t declared anything regarding the rumors, but the same Matthew Mellon cracked jokes in several occasions saying that a movie about his life would be something very interesting to watch. Could that be a possibility now? Well, we still need to wait to respond this, but we can all be sure that in case this happens, it would represent a HUGE benefit for the crypto community and not for the Ripple’s XRP only.

What would happen with XRP though? Stay tuned.

Collaborating with Other Cryptocurrencies, META 1 Tackles Injustice and Human Rights 

META 1 Coin Trust has announced plans to identify, research and document instances of governmental overreach in cryptocurrency cases globally, as part of its ongoing efforts to advance human rights and individual freedom. 

According to Robert P. Dunlap, Executive Trustee of META 1 Coin Trust, “The malicious attacks on crypto projects globally by overzealous government agencies must be documented and publicized to protect the individual liberties of META 1 Coin holders, as well as issuers and holders of other cryptocurrencies.” He added, “The decentralized, non-jurisdictional reality of crypto has left government agencies often unable to fully litigate cases and the general public should not have to continue suffering due to excessive overreach as agencies clamor to save face.”

META 1 Coin Trust is led by Robert P. Dunlap and Nicole Bowdler, who are both committed to pushing back against unimpeded global persecution of cryptocurrencies. By calling attention to years of organized efforts by government agencies to specifically target cryptocurrency projects, their hope is that the public will see and demand an end to these unjust violations of individual liberty. 

Specific grievances which motivated this initiative include grave concerns over government agencies’ obstruction of individuals’ livelihoods, defamation of character, and libelous false accusations which could tarnish the names of individuals for years to come, long after legal actions…

TEL AVIV, Israel, 13th October, 2020, // ChainWire //

MarketAcross, a world leader in blockchain public relations and marketing services, is pleased to announce the launch of Chainwire, an automated press release distribution service which provides guaranteed coverage and in-depth reports. Chainwire will be a one-stop-shop for the distribution of press releases in the cryptocurrency and blockchain sector. The launch marks the first time that advertisers can reach leading publications in the crypto media with the click of a button. 

While most industries have some kind of PR newswire service, the cryptocurrency sector has become a victim of its own rapid pace of growth over recent years. Since the ICO boom of 2017, there has been a proliferation of blockchain and crypto-focused projects, exchanges, investment firms, and marketing agencies, along with niche news and informational content sites. 

However, the infrastructure to connect this complex ecosystem has been slow to come up to speed, meaning that existing newswire services don’t reach their target audience. It’s estimated that one in five people own cryptocurrencies, so there is currently a significant missed opportunity to reach a massive global readership. 

As a newswire service dedicated to the crypto and blockchain space, Chainwire aims to address this gap. Press releases are distributed to leading publications, offering guaranteed coverage to reach audiences worldwide. The system is integrated with publishers and blogs, enabling accurate reporting via a user-friendly dashboard. It also…
