The cryptocurrency craze seems to be ruling not just the business world, but is also taking the entertainment industry by storm. Recently, there was news of a Japanese all-girl cryptocurrency themed J-Pop band that had become a sensation in Japan. The band was set up to raise awareness about various cryptocurrencies. Several other celebrities too have been vocal about their support for the cryptocurrency. And now, pop icon Katy Perry seems to have joined the cryptocurrency bandwagon. The American singer, songwriter posted what could well go on to become the newest trend in ‘crypto-fashion’. Katy Perry posted a photograph of her crypto-themed manicure on Instagram Thursday, January 25, and the internet is loving it.
The photograph shows that Katy Perry’s nails are now decorated with 3D images of five cryptocurrencies superimposed over a background of US dollar bills. While there are several types of cryptocurrencies, the five adorning Katy’s nails are Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Stellar and Monero. The singer, however, did not disclose the reasons behind her selection. She uploaded the photo with a simple caption, ‘Crypto Claws’ written between dollar signs at the start and the finish. Katy also tagged the Instagram handles of the five cryptocurrencies that were on her nails. In addition to this, she also tagged her manicure artist and an assortment of crypto-related accounts including ethereum_updates, stellarlumens, moneroofficial, and litecoinofficial.

Interestingly, this is not the first time Katy Perry has dabbled with cryptocurrencies. Late last year, News BTC reports that she posted a photo of herself with billionaire investor Warren Buffett when she reportedly asked him his opinion on cryptocurrency. Besides Katy, a host of other celebrities have expressed their involvement with cryptocurrency. These include Paris Hilton, Floyd Mayweather and Luis Suarez. Also, earlier this week, rapper 50 Cent became a Bitcoin millionaire when he rediscovered a stash of the cryptocurrency that he had received for an album in 2014.
