Serena Williams joins NFT world, displays CryptoPunk as pfp on Twitter

  • GM, everyone. If you thought the fervor for NFTs would go down with the stock market and Bitcoin yesterday, you were wrong. NFT sales were down yesterday after a bull run for four straight days. That’s true. But that was to be expected after the torrid NFT sales, in contrast with the decline of the stock market and Bitcoin during the same period.
  • But the bigger news is that Serena Williams flexed a CryptoPunk with a headband as her pfp.
  • Based on my quick review, it appears to be CryptoPunk #2950. (Let us know if we’re wrong.)
  • Unfortunately, Williams has a hamstring injury and won’t be playing in this week’s Australian Open. But we hope to see more of her in the NFT world!
  • In 2021, we can expect many other high-profile athletes and celebrities will adopt NFTs, joining the early adopters from last year, such as Steph Curry, Jimmy Fallon, Reese Witherspoon, Eminem, and Snoop Dogg. Buckle up. We’re just getting started.
