Hollywood celebrity Scott Eastwood has partnered with Pastel to give away free Ethereum NFTs after initially being hesitant about the scams polluting the crypto space. The Longest Ride actor revealed that he was very much weary of seeing a lot of pump-and-dump scams. He said he did not really want to put his feet in the water until he understood what it was all about.
Scott Eastwood will be releasing three monthly NFT drops from October to December. The first NFT is a pop culture-inspired stylized portrait of Scott Eastwood by artist Paul Gerben who has worked with Pastel and has done commissioned physical art for Clint Eastwood, Jimmy Fallon, Dave Chappelle, and Howard Stern. The tokens will show Scott Eastwood as a range of different comic book and pop culture icons like Wolverine, Rambo, and The Flash.
The Overdrive actor said the NFTs will unlock IRL benefits. Token holders can make the most of exclusive perks like signed Eastwood memorabilia or tickets to exclusive premieres. The second NFT drop will have a still from one of Scott Eastwood’s movies. Token holders will get access to never-before-seen stills, memorabilia from the movie, and a donation made in their name to their favorite veterans or armed forces charity. The celebrity said fans who want to be part of the third NFT drop will have to complete the “Eastwood Challenge” on social media. The challenge will involve beer. Token holders will have to film themselves shotgunning a beer, and describe their favorite charity without burping. Pastel, in return, will donate to the winners’ charities. But no burping!
