Former UFC light-heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell has announced he will invest in three popular altcoins, including the dog meme-based cryptocurrency Shiba Inu ($SHIB).
Liddell, a former UFC superstar who has been dabbling in cryptoassets, published a Twitter poll last week asking community members to choose between three altcoins: Dogecoin ($DOGE), Shiba Inu ($SHIB) and SafeMoon ($SAFEMOON). After tallying more than 180,000 votes, Safemoon led the poll with 43.8%, followed by Shiba Inu at 30.6%, and Dogecoin in third place at 25.5%.
In a subsequent tweet, Liddell thanked the crypto community for participating in the poll. He announced his decision to invest “money and diversify” between all three altcoins in the percentage of votes that they received. While Liddell did not disclose the amount he would be investing, he did say his decision was persuaded by the community’s “enthusiasm” towards the voting process.
The former UFC champion had previously announced his growing interest in cryptoassets with a series of tweets in November, including asking community members to help him understand the differences between dog meme cryotoassets $DOGE and $SHIB.
Liddell joins a growing list of current and former MMA fighters who have taken an interest in cryptoassets, including Ben Askren and Eddie Alvarez.
