Paris Hilton’s Web3 Experience Continues to Evolve
It was almost a year ago when Paris Hilton appeared on the Tonight with Jimmy Fallon and revealed she had aped into the Bored Ape Yacht Club. Since then, her journey in Web3 has only continued to expand. At Rarity Sniper, we’ve covered several articles about Paris Hilton launching products and experiences in Web3. Here are the top stories.
In October 2022, Hilton teamed up with The Sandbox for a Halloween-themed virtual experience called ‘Cryptoween.’ The virtual event took place between October 21st and November 7th in an immersive fantasy-land party hosted by Hilton.
Next, ten months ago, Hilton announced she was building a virtual mansion in The Sandbox. Via Medium post, she said the metaverse space will offer fans to connect with her in new ways through virtual rooftop parties and glamorous social events.
Finally, about a year ago, Hilton was reported to be a leading investor in the NFT ticketing platform “Afterparty.” The report suggested the firm had raised $7 million from venture capitalists, investment firms, and celebrities including Hilton.
For fans of Hilton and Web3, the Paris Hilton Avatar collection should be exciting news. At Rarity Sniper, we’ll keep an eye on the NFT launch and follow up on any developments in the story.
