Cryptocurrency analyst Kaleo and Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) investor Lark Davis were among the people who welcomed Witherspoon’s first step into cryptocurrency. 

Adherents of Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE), a Shiba Inu-themed cryptocurrency, also pitched their coin at Witherspoon. Dogecoin co-creator Billy Markus said in a Tweet that he liked the 1999 film “Election.”
