Maisie Williams, best known for playing Arya Stark in “Game of Thrones,” had a simple question for Twitter: "should i go long on bitcoin ?"
And, boy, is Crypto Twitter delivering. Not content to, you know, just stick to a yes or no answer, the (dire)wolves descended on Williams, peppering her with a mixture of investment advice and GoT puns.
Podcaster Stephen Livera said, "Start small and learn more as you go. Happy to help if you've got questions and want to avoid scams in the space."
Her people will call your people, Stephen.
Crypto Bitlord advised Williams to "just click 'buy' in your PayPal app and we'll see you at $100k," before backpedalling after realizing he wasn't a member of Williams' book club.
Attorney Drew Hinkes and Digital Currency Group founder Barry Silbert pulled out the memes.
And Lolli's Aubrey Strobel said, "RIP your replies...but yes."
Spoiler alert: Going long on an investment means purchasing it with the expectation that it will rise—kind of like Jon Snow coming back from the dead.
Shorting an investment means to sell with the expectation that the price will go down—kind of like Tommen Baratheon from the tower—so you can then buy them at a lower price (see: Jon Snow coming back from the dead).
Poor Maisie. If only she’d learned from JK Rowling’s regrettable foray into Bitcoin Twitter. Rowling, of course, wishes she’d never tweeted about Bitcoin now—just like we all wish we’d skipped that last season of “Game of Thrones.”
