Tony Hawk, Bitcoin Culture – Bitcoin Magazine: Bitcoin News, Articles, Charts, and Guides


During the Bitcoin 2021 conference in Miami today, professional skateboarding icon Tony Hawk took the stage to discuss the parallels between Bitcoin and skateboarding as countercultural movements.

“If you’re doing something you truly love, you’re not truly working,” Hawk said, describing his decision to dedicate his professional life to skateboarding. “If you’re working in some sort of Bitcoin facet or world, and you’re enjoying what you’re doing, I think you should stick with it.”

In 2019, Hawk publicly announced himself as a bitcoin investor when he tweeted that he had “been riding [the bitcoin price] for six years” and that he hadn’t “bailed yet.” Last month, he told The New York Times that he had been investing in bitcoin for almost 10 years. His skateboard park-building nonprofit, the Tony Hawk Foundation, started accepting bitcoin donations in 2019.
