Anybody who’s anyone is moving into NFTs: Ozzy Osbourne, Eminem, Melania, her husband’s former henchman Michael Cohen. However there have been some hold-outs. Ambient music pioneer Brian Eno claimed that costly and simply reproducible jpegs that did unimaginable hurt to the atmosphere have been for “hustlers.” They despatched Keanu Reeves right into a stomach snort. Now they’ve one other skeptic: The man who performed Al Borland on Residence Enchancment.
Granted, Richard Karn — who additionally spent a handful of seasons internet hosting Household Feud within the aughts — wasn’t at all times cautious of NFTs. He was for ‘em earlier than he was in opposition to ‘em. On Monday, the actor and sport present host revealed he was hopping on the non-fungible token band wagon. He was partnering, he mentioned, with “Superfandom,” an organization that helps celebrities design personalised NFTs and make a pair bucks. Some fortunate winners wouldn’t simply win digital tokens; some would additionally to talk on the telephone, play golf, or take part a sport of Household Feud over Zoom.
