In a recent interview with The Verge, Keanu Reeves laughed at the mention of NFT and said that NFTs are items that can’t be copied but can be easily reproduced. Notably, NFTs created for his upcoming The Matrix Resurrections film became quite popular and resulted in the temporary crash of the website on which they were sold.

For the unversed, NFT collectables are the rare digital artefacts that can be owned by the users via blockchain networks that back cryptocurrencies. NFTs items include all forms of art, tweets, music, GIFs, and more other digital assets. Notably, other than art lovers and investors, Indian celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan, Sunny Leone, Yuvraj Singh have also invested in NFTs recently.

Reeves added that he is not unaware of the blockchains as he even owns a cryptocurrency that his friend bought for him. He is “HODLing” it at the moment and isn’t actively trading any of it as of now.

As for Metaverse, Reeves believes that Metaverse is not invented by Facebook as the concept is way older. He doesn’t want Facebook to own metaverse. He elaborated that he is not against decentralized technologies like cryptocurrency and metaverse as long as Facebook stays out of it.
