El Hormiguero is a popular Spanish TV program with a live audience. The show has a focu on comedy, guest interviews and science.
Famous British actress Kate Winslet, known for her roles in Hollywood blockbusters alongside Leonardo DiCaprio has made herself a name on the big screen. Rumours have begun to emerge that she’s making a name for herself in the Bitcoin industry as a trader using automated platforms. In this, we investigate the validity of the rumours.
Has Kate Winslet invested in Bitcoin?
After conducting a thorough investigation into her public communication and comments about her investments, it appeared that any rumours suggesting that she has invested in Bitcoin are false. Kate Winslet does not seem to have stated or confirmed that she has ever invested in the cryptocurrency market, or that she adds to her wealth through Bitcoin trading.
In September 2019, Winslet took action against scammers who used her name to entice users to their Bitcoin trading scheme. This was out of the rationale that it was false advertising without consent and defamatory content, given the nature of the scheme.
Why are there rumours that Kate Winslet has invested in Bitcoin?
Often affiliate marketers and trading schemers will use famous A-lister celebrities to entice fans to their product or platform to make revenue from traffic or links. This is particularly prevalent on gossip blogs and media houses where traffic builds search engine rankings and fake news helps direct people to their websites.
However, it is worthwhile noting that while some news about Kate Winslet might be false and possibly linked to malicious sites, this is not an accurate reflection on the market or trading Bitcoin in general.
Does Kate Winslet endorse Bitcoin Trader?
In the same way that Winslet has not invested in Bitcoin (or at least from public knowledge), she has not endorsed Bitcoin Trader. Any rumours or news houses which state that Winslet has used Bitcoin Trader as a platform to make Bitcoin trades are spreading fake news.
What are Bitcoin trading systems and automatic trading platforms?
Automatic Bitcoin trading platforms make use of data and historic trends to make trades on behalf of users. Taking an initial deposit, the trading platforms will take market movements and previous trends and predict what Bitcoin will do making speculative trades for the user. This is a passive way for users to make extra income through Bitcoin trading without having to watch the market consistently.
Because Bitcoin systems such as Bitcoin Trader use data to make trades, the room for human sentiment and emotional trading is vastly reduced. The trades are based on algorithmic trends and Bitcoin trends which are likely to happen. Reviews have shown that between 80 and 90% of the trades made by automated platforms are profitable. When using Bitcoin trading platforms, however, it is worth noting that the cryptocurrency industry is a volatile one and trends can shift rapidly, which might result in the loss of funds. That being said, the high-risk trading can also lead to a high-reward and the room for a profit can exponentially increase if the marketssurge.
Kate Winslet and Bitcoin in the media
Last month, we reported about the new film Winslet will be acting is based on a Bitcoin scam. As reported, Winslet has signed to star in the movie Fake! which is based on the OneCoin scam story. The narrative is taken from a book co-written by Jen McAdams and Douglas Thompson and tells the story about the OneCoin founder (who disappeared and is still at large) and will be used as an educational and advisory tale about the dangers of schemes in order to advocate safe trading in the investment market. In this, Winslet will be starring in the film directed and screenwriter by The Bourne Ultimatum director Scott Z. Burns.
