Coinflip, one of the largest cryptocurrency ATM operators, announced Tuesday a partnership with actor and longtime crypto investor Neil Patrick Harris to launch a marketing campaign with the actor as a spokesperson.
Coinflip was founded in 2015 and currently operates over 2,200 cryptocurrency ATMs in 47 US states that support the buying and selling of nine cryptocurrencies with cash.

He is also famous for his role in 12 Broadway productions and has hosted many television awards shows over the years, including the Oscars, Emmys and the Tony Awards.
The campaign is intended to show “the simplicity of investing in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin and other cryptocurrencies,” says the announcement details. It includes an ad titled “So Flippin ‘Easy,” showing Harris using a coin flip ATM.
Cryptocurrency is the future of our shopping, investing and doing business, but it can also be incredibly technical and intimidating. I prefer my transactions to be simple and to the point.
He added, “I’m excited to be working with you and spreading the word about how their ATMs and online trade desk services work so that more people can access the exciting world of cryptocurrency.”
In an interview with Forbes, Harris shared:
I remember when I first heard about Bitcoin. Like most people, I didn’t quite get it, but at the time the price of Bitcoin was so low that I thought I could try without risking too much.
Coinflip CEO Ben Weiss told the publication, “We partnered with Neil Patrick Harris, who is known, approachable and lowers the perceived bar for entry into the room.”
The actor said: “My investment has now grown enormously and has multiplied in value, even large corporations and traditional investors are all jumping on the bandwagon. My goal is to let everyone know how easy and accessible it is to invest in cryptocurrency and participate in the future of finance. “
