Paris Hilton has become a significant figure in the NFT space and the metaverse. Even Forbes has listed Paris Hilton as one of the top 50 most influential NFT personalities.
Paris Hilton collaborated with SUPERPLASTIC to create NFTs on the Origin Protocol, yet her most notable NFT has so far been a hand-made piece that took six months to finish – a collage of pictures taken with her new husband, Carter. The artwork is named ‘My Forever Fairytale.’
The socialite surprised the audience on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ when she announced that she would be gifting her special hand-crafted NFTs to Fallon and everyone present for the show. The show celebrated the first NFT giveaway in history to air on TV, the show’s host said.
During the show, Jimmy Fallon and Paris Hilton discussed Bored Apes, as they both own a BAYC NFT. Fallon showed pictures of Hilton’s red ape with stylish sunglasses, and his own white ape with a captain hat, striped shirt, and red heart sunglasses.
