Harry Potter author asks Crypto Twitter to help him understand Bitcoin

JK Rowling, the iconic author of the Harry Potter novels, has no problem understanding potions, charms and divination in the world of Hogwarts. However, she seems baffled by the magic money of the Internet.

The 54-year-old writer recently went to Twitter to say that she knew nothing about Bitcoin , the world's largest cryptocurrency.

Therefore, she asked crypto Twitter for help, which could be a surefire sign that general adoption is finally coming.

When crypto and Hogrwarz meet

Only minutes after the publication of the tweet, the Rowling replies have been filled with members of the industry cryptocurrency who have tried to provide explanations.

Some of them have stuck with technical descriptions watered while other adherents have tried to find analogies full of mind that relate to the Harry Potter series.

Canadian crypto educator BTC Sessions compared Bitcoin to the Gringotts Wizarding Bank if it was actually created and collectively owned by assistants and could be audited by anyone. This is exactly what Bitcoin does

Others have started promoting Bitcoin by saying that Lord Voldemort (or "The One Who Must Not Be Appointed") would be helpless in the decentralized world without Horcruxes and his wand.

Harry Potter themed pieces

As Twitter tries to explain to Rowling how the whole wizarding economy can be controlled with internet money without trust and without authorization, its fans are not short of crypto.

As indicated by PassionCrypto  , Beam and Grin , two crypto-currencies Harry Potter style that have been launched last year, are based on MimbleWimble privacy technology.

MimbleWimble is a language-related curse that was used to hide the fate of Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter books.
