TUCKER Coin Rose 37% Amid Tucker Carlson's Interview with Russian President
The Tucker Carlson-inspired cryptocurrency TUCKER has jumped 37% in the last 24 hours amid the announcement of the scandal-plagued journalist's interview with Russian President, Vladimir Putin.
Over the past 24 hours, the cryptocurrency market has seen the value of the TUCKER cryptocurrency skyrocket by 37%. This sudden jump came amid news of an upcoming interview between Tucker Carlson, former Fox News anchor and a strong supporter of cryptocurrencies, and the Russian President. The interview, confirmed by both parties, will be broadcast on platform X on Feb. 9 at 02:00 Moscow time.

Tucker Carlson, a longtime advocate of cryptocurrencies and critic of the U.S. regulators' and government's stance on the issue, recently attended a business conference in Las Vegas. At the conference, he emphasized the importance of Bitcoin not only as an investment asset, but also as a means of countering government overreach into the economy. "The promise of Bitcoin is you’re independent of control by the people who devalue currencies since Rome," he once explained.

The TUCKER token has nothing to do with the journalist itself, except for the shared name. Often, developers do this in order to quickly build a community and make money. This is a common practice in the cryptocurrency movement. For example, recently the Donald Trump-inspired meme coin MAGA (TRUMP) rose 15,000% in a matter of days amid the Trump presidential race. Therefore, investors should be extremely cautious when investing in tokens inspired by famous personalities.
Still, it's worth noting that cases like these highlight the growing interaction between the world of cryptocurrencies and public figures, which is helping to increase interest and engagement in the cryptocurrency economy.
