At a time in which bitcoin’s price falls to a 6-week low , and JP Morgan’s Jamie Dimon labels the cryptocurrency a “fraud” and adds that he would fire any employee trading it, rocker and 70s band Kiss co-founder and front-man Gene Simmons stated that he is a fan of bitcoin, and finds it an interesting investment.

Simmons’ interest was revealed in a recent interview with TheStreet, in which he notably stated:

“I am interested in Bitcoin, but only as a piece of the [investment] puzzle”

Simmons clarified that he is interested in bitcoin likes to be diversified with his investments.

Great. Real Estate? Great.”

The 70s band co-founder was then asked if he would ever attach his name to a cryptocurrency, hinting at other celebrity endorsements like that of boxing champion Floyd Mayweather and hotel heiress Paris Hilton.
