Johnny Depp sells NFTs, donates nearly $800K to children’s hospitals
Johnny Depp has donated nearly $800,000 to four children’s hospitals after selling NFTs of his artwork.
The 59-year-old “Pirates of the Caribbean” star sold non-fungible tokens – unique digital assets traded through
blockchain technology – of his art collection “Never Fear Truth” and donated the proceedings to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles,
Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation, the Footprint Coalition and the Great Ormond
Street Hospital Children’s Charity, according to a Tuesday tweet from Depp’s Never Fear Truth account.
“We are grateful and very thankful to the Never Fear Truth community for this tremendous accomplishment – making
this project one of the most philanthropic NFT sales to date – and we are excited to build on
this success and making an even greater impact going forward,” another tweet reads.
The generous donations come after Depp endured oftentimes embarrassing testimony in his defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard
