Famed Trader Joe Lewis is not investing in your play money
Bitcoiners are feverishly spreading the rumor that Joe Lewis is investing in the Bitcoin ASIC “company,” Avalon, passing a link to this now-rescinded story on the Wall Street Journal. One of the commenters there was quick to put two and two together and find that Bitcoin just doesn’t add up:
Even the folks at reddit have managed to determine that the story is false, at least I think they did. Wait, no, they just read this tweet by a man who actually took the time to do a little research:
Spoke to Joe Lewis this morning who says of reported Bitcoin investment: "Completely Untrue". Tells me he's "Never heard of Phoenix Fund"

Despite this, twitter is still full of rabid bitcoiners spreading this crap like wildfire. What’s the opposite of FUD but also a total lie?
I don’t have anything else to add so here’s a photo of some bitcoins where they belong:
