• The "Game of Thrones" star asked her followers whether she should go long on Bitcoin
  • Many people replied to Williams' tweet
  • Elon Musk advised Williams to "toss a coin to the Witcher"

When "Game of Thrones" star Maisie Williams asked her Twitter followers whether she should buy Bitcoin or not, many personalities from the Crypto community chimed in with their thoughts. One notable response was from Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX.

Musk is also the unofficial CEO of cryptocurrency Dogecoin.

In a tweet Monday, Williams asked her followers whether she should "go long on Bitcoin" or not. To "go long" in finance means buying a stock or, in this case, Bitcoin, and holding it for a period of time, expecting a profit by the time it will be sold.

While many people responded by making references to "Game of Thrones", where Williams played Arya Stark, Musk said in jest, "Toss a Bitcoin to Ur Witcher." This is a reference to an entirely different series, one that is based on the books written by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski and was recently adapted into a Netflix series titled "The Witcher". "Toss a coin to your Witcher" is an original song created for the TV series.

Musk also shared an article from the Onion, a satirical website, which tried to explain the "possible vulnerabilities in crazy imaginary Internet money."

In his reply, billionaire Mike Novogratz of Galaxy Digital said he recently bought some more Bitcoins for $15,800 and was expecting the dominant cryptocurrency to go reach $20,000 and then $65,000.

Williams received 902,000 responses, with 53.4% saying the actress should not go long while 46.6% said she should purchase it. Though the poll is not scientific, it shows that Bitcoin is gaining some mainstream interest again.

At the time this article was written, Bitcoin just hit $18,000. It will be the highest level since 2018 if it closes above this.
