Hi Reese – welcome to the crazy world of NFTs! Our artist Ayyo is an amazingly talented designer. She hand-drew all of the artwork for the Skeleton Crew SKULL NFTs. We’re also using our platform to commission and elevate independent artists, many of them women like @highshowers. pic.twitter.com/pe8TAkohVO

Why It Matters: Last month, Witherspoon had purchased her first-ever Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH).
At the time, social media star and boxer Logan Paul had offered the actor an NFT from the “World of Women” collection. That project aims at creating diversity in the digital art token space.
A number of celebrities have jumped aboard the NFT bandwagon. CryptoPunks, for example, are owned by Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, Serena Williams among others.
Snoop Dogg last month shelled out $3.9 million to add an XCopy NFT to his growing collection of digital art.
Price Action: Over 24-hours, ETH traded 0.05% lower at $3,481.38.
