Reese Witherspoon has gone down the crypto rabbit hole, big time.
The A-lister tweeted overnight that in the near future, everyone would have a parallel digital identity and that avatars, crypto wallets and digital goods would be the norm.
In the (near) future, every person will have a parallel digital identity. Avatars, crypto wallets, digital goods will be the norm. Are you planning for this?

Anyone watching what’s going on with Web 3.0 probably wouldn’t even consider this a bold prediction — there’s signs it is happening daily. But the Legally Blonde actress was roundly mocked for it in the celebrity press.
“Pretty funny how many people still don’t understand this, even after #Facebook changed its friggin’ name to META. This is the future,” one user tweeted.
Fans of NEAR Protocol meanwhile were looking for a hidden meaning in Witherspoon’s words.

It’s not the first time the actress has tweeted to her 2.9 million followers about crypto.
Crypto is here to stay. I’m committed to supporting creators who have pioneered the NFT space, and encouraging more women to be a part of the conversation. https://t.co/tq9EdwAmJC

In October she even changed her Twitter avatar to a World of Women NFT.
