Cryptocurrency mogul gifts wife $20M-worth of tokens for her birthday10/27/2020
Cybercurrency mogul Alex Mashinsky gifted his wife, former Urban Outfitters exec Krissy, $20 million for her 50th birthday. Or, at least, he gifted her 15 million tokens from Celcius, the crypto network that he founded — which, apparently, are currently worth $20 million.
He tweeted, “[Krissy] has been with me through it all and ALWAYS supported me even when I made silly mistakes. I love you.”
Meanwhile, the pair recently founded a company that uses Blockchain — the technology that cryptocurrency runs on — to track the production of real-world goods to ensure they’re American-made.
Krissy recently told Page Six that goods that are often sold as “Made in the USA” are actually manufactured elsewhere. But she said that soon they expect their company, USA Strong, to allow “customers to be able to see — from the farmer through to the shipper to your door — who touched and made your products.”
She said that in part because of Blockchain, the company is able to sell products that are verified to be made in America.
