In 2021, Hollywood actor Matt Damon called for buying cryptocurrency, especially at a time when Bitcoin hit an all-time high of $69,000.
His participation in the Matt Damon Crypto.com commercial and the slogan “Fortune favors the brave” became a real meme, since from that moment the crypto market began to fall.
The actor explained yesterday that he agreed to the ad because the cryptocurrency exchange had donated $1.1 million to Water.org, a charity he co-founded.
I am very grateful to them for what they have done for our foundation,” said Damon.
Crypto.com’s partnership with Matt Damon was announced in October 2021, and a promotional video featuring him aired in prime time during the Super Bowl in February 2022.
Shortly after its release, social media exploded with criticism of the ad, calling it “Spanish shame.” Even after a few months, people still bullied him.
