The hashtags and links to the video show that the goal is to promote a series of NFTs called “Stoner Cats”. For example, anyone who buys the NFT gets access to the Kunis anime series with the same name as the token.

According to our source, the series is tagged “The First NFT Anime Series” and people with access to it can stream it.

As for the actor’s participation in NFTs, we understand that he digitized and incinerated a piece of art that many thought was terrible. It was last year in August, and his explanation for this was to help environmental charities.

Besides the artwork, Kutcher’s A-Grade investment firm had backed some crypto companies, BitPay and BitGo, in 2013 and 2014.
