One of the top minds in crypto, Anthony Pompliano has just persuaded Bill Burr, one of the biggest comedians in the world, to invest in cryptocurrency.

In a July 1 episode of the Bill Bert Podcast, named for the comedian and his co-host Bert Kreischer. Burr said he was buying Bitcoin (BTC), after one of his famous profanity-laden tirades culminated in the phrase:

“I’m getting Bitcoin! f— this s—!”.

Pomp tweeted after the interview:

Pompliano had just finished educating the duo on how banks are unable to provide more than $250,000 in protection from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) for some accounts. 

Burr, who has a net worth of roughly $12 million, risks losing a lot of money should a bank fold, unless his fiat assets were highly spread out.

The comedian took aim at “unqualified” bankers using his money to turn a profit, claiming they inflated the housing market:

“You create this whole f—-ing bubble and when the whole thing goes to s— you still get a f—ing bonus and you’re only gonna give me 250 off my million bucks? How is that f—ing legal? I’m getting Bitcoin! f— this s—!”

The duo quizzed Pomp on everything financial, from legacy systems and inflation to the history of cryptocurrency back to Satoshi.

Pomp kept his analogies simple, explaining distributed ledgers as a game of Monopoly in which everyone tracks the money.

Eventually, the conversation turned practical, with the pair asking about the current price – $9,232 (at the time of publication) and how crypto is held.

Pomp even proposed Burr consider adding Bitcoin as an option for payments for his comedy shows, while Kreischer also expressed an interest in mining cryptocurrency.

Responses from viewers were generally positive at the trio’s exchange:

Being comedians, Burr and Bert took the time to make Pomp chuckle on a number of occasions with statements including:

“Bitcoin is like Cardi B: you’ve heard of her, but never heard of her songs.”

Upon seeing clips of the interview, members of Crypto Twitter were also quick to try their hand at a few jokes:
