Olympic bobsledder Johnny Quinn is the latest sports celebrity to swallow an orange pill. On a Twitter thread, he shared his best Bitcoin (BTC) education, hailing the Bitcoin class of 2022.
As a Graduate of 2021 #Bitcoiner, I would like to informally-officially welcome the Graduate of 2022. Buckle up and go on an exciting journey. First things first: it is very important that you develop a proper structure regarding #BTC. Attached is your required reading list.

Apart from instructing his fans to digest his reading list, “no excuses. Do it;” Quinn says, “Under no circumstances are you subservient to the mainstream. They are confused.”
He backs up his claim with a number of media reports and headlines since September 2017 showing major institutional players such as Visa, JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs are pivoting into Bitcoin.
The most powerful 180-degree turn is Jamie Dimon’s JPMorgan. From a CEO who criticized Bitcoin in 2017, the world’s largest investment bank is now promoting Bitcoin as an investment vehicle:

In a word to the wise, the Olympian also suggests avoiding “moon boys.” Typically cryptocurrency youtubers and influencers, the moon boys encourage risky trading practices while chasing Lamborghini; or more recently by showing off NFTs to their followers. Instead, Quinn suggests:
“Dollar value averaging your bitcoin position over a long time horizon (no leverage) is a game.”
Quinn joins a promising roster of athletic bitcoin brothers. From NFL stars and NBA champions earning their annual salary in Bitcoin to the humble Bedford Football Club putting “Bitcoin at its heart”, the competitive world of sports is a hotbed of Bitcoin adoption.

Quinn began tweeting about Bitcoin in early 2021, having taken one of Michael Saylor’s “Bitcoin for All” online courses last fall. Since then, he has become an ardent supporter of Bitcoin, while undoubtedly overlapping with self-promotion.
The Twitter thread “Coach Quinn, Bitcoin Class of 2021” was well received by the Bitcoin Twitter community as well as its 19,000 followers. US-based founder of Swan Bitcoin, Corey Swan, retweeted the thread saying it was “great thread for newcoiners!”
