Tether Blows Captain Kirk’s Mind
William Shatner, the original Captain Kirk, wants you to know that he knows his crypto. After admitting back in June that he doesn’t fully understand the bitcoin mining business he was getting into, Shatner has now gone on a tweet storm showing just how much he learned.
Besides discussing developments in smart contracts, Shatner also dropped a truth bomb on Tether (#USDT

…” Obviously having a lot of fun with this dive into the world of cryptocurrency, the TV star was also happy to engage with fans about Crypto Kitties. And after learning that he can breed them, Shatner joked that he is now waiting for the accessories, “the Crypto Kitty Dream House and the Crypto Kitty Corvette.” Canadian Bank to Launch Deposit Box for Exchanges
