Another hip hop artist joins the cryptocurrency train after numerous rappers and musicians turned to the decentralized economy. DeAndre Cortez Way, known by his stage name “Soulja Boy”, discussed cryptocurrencies with his 5.2 million social media followers on Tuesday. Soulja Boy is best known for his track “Crank That”, which landed at number 1 on the Billboard spots in 2007. The song was previously released on the internet itself and Soulja Boy became very well known for the way it was released.
On Tuesday, Soulja Boy tweeted his followers about cryptocurrencies, apparently looking for a way to buy. “What’s the Best Way to Buy Crypto? Robin Hood? Coinbase? “The rapper asked his fans. Of course, some proponents of cryptocurrencies exchanged their preferred exchanges during the Twitter conversation.
After the tweet, some exchanges also responded to Soulja Boy’s question, recommending him to use their trading platforms. The hip-hop star retweeted many of these recommendations from crypto firms like Binance US, Etoro, Blockchain.com, Cash App, Voyager, Okcoin, and others. “I just want to make sure I’m using the best platform while I’m in investment mode,” added Soulja Boy.

Thoughts On How To Create My Own Crypto?
Of course, some people said it was a bad idea while other digital currency supporters told Soulja Boy to do it. A BCH supporter recommended that Soulja Boy use mint.Bitcoin.com to create an SLP (Simple Ledger Protocol) token that builds on Bitcoin Cash.
Some other people warned the rapper not to create his own coin as U.S. regulators recently took action against coin offerings (ICOs) and unregistered securities lawsuits. “Don’t do it,” tweeted Neeraj K. Agrawal from the Coincenter organization. “You will get into trouble,” he added.
In addition, other digital currency fans recommended Soulja Boy to create an NFT (Non-Fungible Token) series. Soulja, if you really want to do something cool and not shallow, or maybe you want to get the SEC’s attention drop some unique NFTs, ”replied one user when asked by the rapper about starting his own crypto.
“Wow,” replied Soulja Boy. “That actually looks stupid, can someone help me? I would also like to publish something. “
