Crypto community reacts to Barbie star saying Bitcoin talk exudes Ken energy

Australian actress Margot Robbie, who plays the lead role in the new Barbie movie, has caused a stir within the crypto community after stating that talking about Bitcoin (BTC) reflects similar traits to Barbie’s companion, Ken.
