Uranus made Ricky Williams buy Bitcoin

According to NFL star Ricky Williams, a signal from Uranus was his trigger to invest in Butcoin… sorry, Bitcoin.

Uranus may seem like an unusual place to look for financial guidance, but not for Williams.

The former NFL pro says he’s now looking to the stars for investment advice.

For professional athletes, it’s not unusual to look for ways of investing the millions of dollars they’ve earned in their short careers.

Former Heisman Trophy winner Williams believes the key to Bitcoin’s future lies in astrology.

Speaking to CNBC, Mr. Williams says, when he looks up to the stars, they align with the planets and advise him to buy Bitcoin, saying:

“When I look at things, I tend to look at astrology to get insight.

“The insight that got me interested in Bitcoin was the planet Uranus is about to enter into Taurus.”

As a new moon is synonymous with new beginnings, to Williams, this means he should buy and HODL to the moon.

Astrologists have much to celebrate this month, with the moon rising in Taurus.

This event means a sign of positive things to come.

But Williams isn’t ironing his spacesuit ready for the morning just yet.

Although he explains that Uranus is a “revolution,” it happens to be moving away from Aries and closer to Taurus.

This move will likely reflect some volatility in cryptocurrency prices to come, he says.

Before he gets deeper into Uranus, Williams tells CNBC, as far as the financial system goes:

“We’re going to totally change the way we view and understand it.”

He says this change will happen because we will re-examine financial “structures like banks.”

This reconsideration of the banking system will occur because Pluto is in retrograde with Capricorn, of course.

He explains:

“I think as people are starting to become disillusioned with our institutions, that things like blockchain and cryptocurrency, it’s the perfect time for them to catch fire and really change the way we do things.

“So, you know, I had to get a little piece of that action.”

Touch down in Uranus

Williams isn’t the only NFL star to have entered the cryptosphere.

Richard Sherman, part of the Super Bowl 2014-winning Seattle Seahawks team, is the spokesperson for crypto trading platform Cobinhood,

Cobinhood allows users to trade cryptocurrencies, boasting no trading fees.

Sherman says he dissuaded his grandmother from investing in digital assets, however.

When it comes to cryptocurrencies, Williams says he is playing it safe.

To start with, he’s pouring no more than $50,000 into digital currencies, telling CNBC he “didn’t want to go crazy.”
