Lily Allen has probably turned down a lot of dorks in her day. But she appears to regret at least one such snub, when lots and lots o' bitcoins were on the line.
"About 5 years ago," Ms. Allen tweeted on Jan. 5, "someone asked me to stream a gig live on second life for hundreds of thousNds of Bitcoins, 'as if' I said #idiot #idiot [all sic]."
She can't be too bummed, though; she's worth $6 million. Betabeat, by comparison, is worth approximately one drawing of a bitcoin.
