With a technological revolution spearheaded by blockchain technology, everyone wants to be first in the world of Web3! The best talent worldwide is entering the Web3 space, but not everyone is doing it right.
For that reason, we have put together a list of notable executives and celebrities who have shifted to Web3 and are doing excellent work. Let’s dive in!

A team of veterans launched GODA, including 13-time Grammy winner Pharrell Williams, KAWS and big-shot investor Shaun Neff.

- If there is one celebrity who is doing Web3 right, it is John Legend!
The ultra-popular singer John Legend is the co-founder and Chief Impact Officer of OurSong, a music platform designed to empower music creators and help them connect directly with their audiences. For example, Our Song integrates chat rooms and private clubs where musicians can “vibe” with their audiences.
Regardless of their number of followers, musicians will have complete control over the NFT soundtracks they create on OurSong, which are called ‘Vibes’. Working in collaboration with Circle, Vibes can be purchased using their native token, OurSong Dollar. In April 2022, the company raised a seed fund of $7.5 million with Animoca Brands and Circle Ventures.
- NFTs do not only consume degens, but they also consumed Paris Hilton!
After one year of hard work, Paris Hilton launched a series of NFTs narrating her personal, abusive experiences of the past 20 years. The NFT collection titled Past Lives, New Beginnings, expressed her past pains and gave her the courage to begin the next chapter of her life. While most see NFTs as a quick cash grab, Paris Hilton used NFTs for self-empowerment and to encourage fellow women to speak up against personal abuse.
