RE: Dear JK Rowling: Bitcoin Is Magic
Author of the famed Harry Potter novels, JK Rowling, tweeted-out in response to a CoinDesk journalist, Leigh Cuen, tweeting/asking “I don’t understand Bitcoin,” Rowling said, adding, “Please explain it to me.”

JK Rowling regrets ever tweeting about Bitcoin
“…Rowling seemingly couldn’t wrap her head around the subject, even when Bitcoin was explained in Harry Potter language. (‘Wizards still need to trust Gringotts Bank. Bitcoin fixes this.”‘said @Bitcoin.) But then things turned sour.
‘This started as a joke, but now I’m afraid I’ll never be able to log in to Twitter again without someone getting angry I don’t own Bitcoin. One day you’ll see a wizened old woman in the street, trying to trade a Harry Potter book for a potato. Be kind. She did try to understand,’ tweeted Rowling on May 15.”
J.K. Rowling Will Probably Never Tweet About Bitcoin Again
