Gene Simmons says he’s added $300K of Cardano to his bags

Kiss bassist Gene Simmons has again taken to Twitter to shill his crypto holdings, claiming to have now invested in Cardano.

The iconic bass player of rock band Kiss and recent recruit to Elon Musk’s “Dogecoin army,” Gene Simmons, has announced a six-figure investment into Cardano (ADA).

On Feb. 19, Simmons revealed on Twitter that he’d bought $300,000 worth of ADA. While emphasizing that he is not a financial analyst — a helpful disclaimer — the rock star said he wanted to share projects he believes in and was definitely not suggesting anyone else should buy ADA:

I just bought $300,000 of CARDANO (ADA). I’m not a Financial Analyst and I’m not telling U to buy or not to buy. Simply letting U know what I am doing and what I believe in. Why? Because I believe it’s going up..and it’s always up to you to research & decide. pic.twitter.com/UiIqowJ4pY

Cardano founder and Ethereum co-founder, Charles Hoskinson, welcomed Simmons to the ADA community and invited him to reach out via private message if he needed any support.

Simmons engaged with some of his followers, providing advice on where they can purchase the token, and commending them for making Cardano’s price “go up:”

Wow!..You guys are already making Cardano (ADA) go up. Impressive.

After professing his support for Bitcoin toward the peak of its 2017 bull rally, Gene Simmons drifted off the crypto radar, but returned with a vengeance at the start of this month after claiming to have made investments in Dogecoin.

Over the past week, he’s also revealed a spate of investments including buying Bitcoin (BTC) seven months ago, $300,000 worth of Ethereum (ETH) when it was trading for $300, and $300,000 worth of Binance Coin (BNB).

Some in the crypto community appear skeptical of Simmons’ newfound passion for Cardano given his high profile coin-shilling, with one Twitter-user replying: “What happened to DOGE coin? wasn’t that your favorite coin some days ago?”

Twitter-user “dgenmemewarrior” took exemption to Simmons’ recent characterization of ADA as more affordable than Bitcoin for ordinary people, posting: “Say no to s**tcoins Gene.“

“Gene is fine, he can gamble. Most of y’all are poor and should be in #Bitcoin, but see 50k as unaffordable,” the Twitter user added.
