What does Star Trek and bitcoin have in common? The future! Captain Kirk — err — William Shatner, rather, appears to be gearing up to dabble in bitcoin.
That’s according to a tweet the actor, comedian, and Priceline negotiator sent out on Thursday.
Ok so I’ll go open up an account and see if these codes will translate into real bitcoin and then figure out what to do with them
Seems like Shatner received some sort of paper wallet, and is trying to import them. This thread on Reddit indicates he’s opening an account on Coinbase, though we don’t see any proof of that in his tweet.
Welcome to the community, Bill.
