Legendary rapper and serial entrepreneur Snoop Dogg was seen wearing a custom-made gold Ledger crypto hardware wallet around his neck at WrestleMania 39.
Snoop Dogg & Ledger Nano X Headline WrestleMania 39
West Coast rapper Snoop Dogg made an in-ring appearance at WWE’s annual WrestleMania event in Hollywood this past weekend. While in the squared-circle, the rapper was wearing a custom-made gold and black diamond Ledger Nano X hardware wallet at Wrestlemania 39.
Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Broadus Jr., has been a vocal advocate of cryptocurrencies for some time now. He has publicly expressed his interest in Bitcoin and other digital assets, and even launched his own NFT collection called “A Journey with the Dogg.”
Snoop was an early investor in the Metaverse and in startups like Reddit and Robinhood. He also is an investor in the cannabis industry, to no one’s surprise. According to data from 2021, his net worth was roughly $150 million, with approximately 10% of that due to investments. The rest is due to his storied music career, constantly collaborations, and ongoing innovation.
The statement demonstrates that cryptocurrencies are not just a niche interest but have become a mainstream phenomenon. The fact that a high-profile celebrity like Snoop Dogg is still openly embracing digital assets is an indication that cryptocurrencies are here to stay, regardless of issues like the FTX collapse and lack of clear regulation.
“Got My Mind On My Money, And My Money Around My Neck”
The Ledger Nano X hardware wallet Snoop was wearing is a popular device used to store cryptocurrencies, providing a secure and user-friendly cold storage solution for managing digital assets. Snoop Dogg’s decision to wear one around his neck is a testament to the growing popularity of cryptocurrencies among celebrities and other high-profile, influential individuals.
The custom-made gold Ledger hardware wallet worn by Snoop Dogg at Wrestlemania 39 was a one-of-a-kind creation, featuring pave black diamonds and the Death Row record logo. The device was stylized by Talia Coles and designed by jeweler Eliantte. It’s a modern day take on the “wallet chain” except for you wear it around your neck instead of having it your pants’ pocket.
“While I was hosting this year’s WrestleMania, it was crucial for me to make sure my digital assets were protected, no matter what I was doing or where I was at,” Snoop explained, more than likely surrounded by a cloud of smoke and wearing the coolest crypto wallet ever made.
“It’s important for me to take strong measures to safeguard my digital assets. And this custom Ledger Nano, let me tell you, it’s not only necessary but also a flex accessory that reflects my personal style. And you know what’s the safest place for it to sit? Around my neck, baby!”
Snoop’s fashion accessory of choice works for the wealthy rapper who is often surrounded by bodyguards. But the everyday individual might want to hesitate before putting their crypto around their neck for privacy and safety reasons. However, he isn’t the only rapper to support digital assets in style. Other notable rappers to show off a blinged-out Ledger include Drake, and the trend will only continue as crypto adoption grows.
