Paris Hilton Drew a Cat and it Somehow Sold for $17,000 in ETH
Parisâ€™ pet is forever immortalized as an NFT.
Media personality and businesswoman Paris Hilton announced that she successfully auctioned a digital painting of her cat, Munchkin, for 40 ETH â€” worth almost $17,000. The sale was held through an Ethereum-based auction platform called Cryptograph.
According to a tweet published by Hilton, money raised from the auction of the portrait will go to three charities in the United States â€” The LA Food Bank, Meals On Wheels, and BB4Homeless.
The anonymous winner of Parisâ€™ auction, known only as â€œAdirollsâ€�, has also bought artwork made by Bitcoin.comâ€™s founder, Roger Ver, and the Ethereum Foundation researcher, Vlad Zamfir.
This isnâ€™t Parisâ€™ first foray into the world of Blockchain. In September 2017, she announced that she was involved with the Singapore-based project, LydianCoin. Once the founder was convicted of domestic violence and battery however, Hilton deleted her tweet.
