Cara Delevingne has joined the crypto game and is selling an NFT all about her vagina. The successful model and actor is auctioning a video in which she appears to be naked.
If you are unfamiliar with the world of NFTs, essentially they are digital assets that are encrypted. They are considered the original artwork, not a copy, and can be bought and sold.

The video in question is 30 seconds long and features Cara Delevingne from the shoulders up, seemingly topless. She speaks directly to the camera, delivering a poetically written dialogue about her ownership of her vagina. It’s a strong message about ownership over one's body — one will resonate with many.
"My first word was ‘mine'. To me, that means something that is most mine, my vagina. I own it. It’s mine and no one else’s. I choose what I do with it. And no one can take that away from me.”
It’s important to note the intentions behind this NFT, as I’m sure many haters will be on the horizon. Teaming up with the artist Chemical X, Delevingne began this project as a way of raising money for the Cara Delevingne Foundation. This foundation focuses on a variety of causes including supporting women’s rights, the LGBTQ+ community, and environmental causes, to name a few. Other artists are involved as well as Delevingne. The project will feature artworks from Fatboy Slim, Dave Stewart, and Orbital.
Technology is rapidly growing and it’s refreshing to see people of a higher position in society use this technology for good. What are your thoughts on Cara Delevingne's NFT? Let us know in the comments!
