Serena Williams reacts to her husband’s efforts
Serena Williams’ husband Alexis Ohanian, who is an internet entrepreneur and also the co-founder of Reddit. He has been interested in collecting NFTs for quite some time now, heavily investing in some NFT firms too.
This time around, he showcased his love for the blockchain and his daughter Olympia Ohanian in one swoop.
He posted a video where he is seen making the NFT featuring his daughter on his shoulders. He also credited Serena Williams for having clicked the original picture.
The 23-time Grand Slam Champion shared the post on her Instagram story and wrote, “I love this and you.”
Alexis has shown his love for his family through NFT’s before as well. He once wore a lapel pin with an NFT made especially for the tennis star, during his appearance at the Met Gala.
This is not Serena’s first interaction with the NFT world. Her Twitter icon used to be another NFT gifted to her by Mr.Ohanian. She also recently purchased a piece from the Bored Ape Yacht Club.
First I get you the SerenaPunk, now I get the pink ape you wanted… you realize I'm only gifting you NFTs from now on right? 😃
