Who knows him from his childhood? Practice for days until you could flawlessly weave the “900 into your combos and you had square eyes of gaming. And now it has just been announced that the world-famous skateboarder Tony Hawk is also a bitcoin HODL and will speak at Bitcoin 2020 in San Francisco.

Tony Hawk is a big bitcoin fan. There is a good chance he will be in it longer than you and me. He has had bitcoin since 2013, when the first and oldest cryptocurrency was still worth less than a thousand dollars. And apparently he can also read technical analyzes, witness his tweet below from May this year.
Been riding it for 6 years. Haven’t bailed yet

Tony Hawk speaks at bitcoin 2020
The organization of Bitcoin 2020, a conference in San Francisco, has announced that the skater will be one of the speakers in March 2020. Hawk shared this message and wonders if he should take a disaster with him.
Looking forward to it! I’ve been riding the Bitcoin transitions for over 5 years now. Which reminds me … should I bring my ramp? https://t.co/0rDyit2Th1

The reactions under this tweet are very positive. Many are just happy that the hero from their teenage years also believes in cryptocurrency and is now taking a more active role in the bitcoin industry.
More and more famous athletes say they stand behind bitcoin. Think footballers, NFL and NBA players and now also professional skateboarders. Tony Hawk gained world fame in his younger years. He ensured that more and more children in the Netherlands used a skateboard (or a Playstation). He was the first to perform the “900” on a half pipe, making him one of the best of all time.
Wondering what Hawk has to say
It is not yet certain what Tony Hawk will discuss during his keynote, but most likely we hear stories about how he was rolled into bitcoin. Most know bitcoin and cryptocurrency because of the 2017 bull run, but Tony Hawk has been working with bitcoin for much longer. It is interesting to hear who convinced him of the digital gold.
