Fan favourite actor Keanu Reeves has sparked mass disappointment as people learn he’s now into NFTs.
It comes as Reeves and his girlfriend Alexandra Grant have helped to launch the Futureverse Foundation – a charitable foundation focused on NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, and art in the metaverse.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the couple has been announced as advisers of the project, with Grant, a visual artist, and Reeves helping the foundation to assist artists in creating and selling their work as NFTs in the metaverse.
Grant told the publication: “I feel like the Futureverse Foundation is a proposal. If we do have this opportunity of building a new economy of [cultural] exchange, how do we?
“It’s new for all of us to be thinking about the partnerships between the art world, Hollywood and tech coming together in this really beautiful way.”
In a statement, Matrix actor Reeves said: “I am honored to be joining Non-Fungible Labs’ efforts in cooperation with Alexandra Grant for the extraordinary program and opportunity of the Futureverse Foundation, in support of artists and creators globally.”
Reacting to the news on social media, some fans of the actor have conveyed their disappointment saying it’s a rare L for Reeves.
