Celebrity fitness trainer and TV personality Jillian Michaels revealed her cryptocurrency investment via Twitter today.
Michaels Holds Over $500,000 of Crypto
Michaels mentioned that she holds $10,000 worth of DOGE and has staked $500,000 worth of ADA on the Cardano blockchain.
I don’t hate doge – I threw 10k at it for fun. I threw 500k at Ada and staked it.

She endorsed those cryptocurrencies in response to Shark Tank host Mark Cuban, who recently questioned the merits of Cardano and suggested the coin currently has limited commercial use. “Are you, personally, able to use ADA for anything?…That’s the question I ask about all crypto,” he recently stated on Twitter.
Instead, Cuban has repeatedly expressed support for Dogecoin and has even added it to the Dallas Mavericks store as a means of payment. Michaels has criticized his stance, stating that choosing “DOGE over ADA is like choosing a porn star over Sophia Lauren.”
Nevertheless, Michaels herself previously indicated limited support for Dogecoin. She mentioned a “sizable” Dogecoin investment at the end of April, but did not disclose the amount of that investment beyond the fact that it had doubled in value.
I literally recently spent sizable amount of money on a crypto currency involving a dog in a meme – based off the advice of a 28 year old. And then… doubled by money. What is this life 🤯 #DogeDay
