The world-renowned influencer Paris Hilton joins Origin as an investor and advisor to make its products and Origin Tokens (OGN) even more successful.
Paris Hilton is the original entertainment and business icon that pushes the creator economy forward.
Aside from her influence on mainstream culture through music and TV shows since the early 2000s, Paris Hilton is also one of the most successful businesswomen in the world. For years she has built a huge business empire in fashion and beauty, entertainment media, e-commerce, retail, and investments. Over the countries and generations, her brand attracts a massive audience. She has also been a famous activist to supports women’s empowerment, minority rights, medical care, and children around the world.
Most importantly, Paris and her fiancé Carter, Partner of M13 Ventures, share Origin’s vision that blockchain technology and NFTs (non-fungible tokens) will aid creators, artists, influencers, and brands to interact more directly with their audience. Shortly, NFTs will change unrecognizably existing major digital industries like gaming, entertainment, social media, premium fashion, limited-edition merchandise, or traditional and contemporary art.
In her blog post, Paris declares her vision in NFTs: “I see NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, as the future of the creator economy. <…> Whether art or music or fashion or design, NFTs allow me to express myself and allow all creators to directly reach their audience, creating a new type of marketplace.”
Before, Paris established partnerships with top NFT technologists and collectors like WhaleShark, Illestrator, 888, 33NFT, Pablo, and many others. Her recent NFT drop with Blake Kathryn become the most successful NFT sale by a female creator on NiftyGateway.
Beyond creating marvelous NFT art, she also has donated to the Sevens Foundation to support NFT artists and avidly collects other creators’ works, amassed over 130 NFTs.
In Origin, Paris will render strategic advice on the most effective usage of NFTs features for top-level creators, as celebrities, brands, and influencers. Also, she will provide education, marketing, and new use cases to bring NFT technology (such as redemption for physical fashion and accessory items, access to unique experiences, or premium content) to mainstream consumer audiences.
This is Paris
One of today’s most recognizable entrepreneurs and international influencers, Paris Hilton is a pioneer in reality television and an innovator in technology, media, and celebrity branding.
Since starring in “The Simple Life,” Hilton has built a global empire as an influencer, DJ, designer, recording artist, philanthropist, host, actress, model, and author. In 2006, she created Paris Hilton Entertainment, a multi-billion-dollar company consisting of 45 branded stores, 29 fragrances, and 19 product lines, which have generated over $4 billion in revenue. In 2011, Variety declared Paris Hilton as a “Billion Dollar Entrepreneur” in recognition of her successful business and global brand.
In 2020, Hilton debuted “This Is Paris,” a critically acclaimed YouTube Originals documentary about her life journey, which has garnered 20+ million views to date. The film follows her success as a businesswoman but also reveals, for the first time, the abuses she suffered as a teenager at schools in the Troubled Teen Industry. Since the documentary debuted, Paris has used her voice and dedicated her platform and resources to eradicate the abuse of children in systemically abusive institutions. As a direct result of Paris’s efforts, Utah passed SB 127, a bill protecting thousands of youth in residential treatment facilities. Paris is actively working to pass a similar bill on the federal level and is an active philanthropist in many other areas.
Always attuned to emerging trends and opportunities, Hilton continues to expand Paris Hilton Entertainment into a leading global integrated media and product company to push boundaries, inspiring audiences, empowering creatives, and drive lasting positive impact across the world. Paris has been an innovator in the NFT space since March of 2020, and in April 2021 set the record for the highest-grossing NFT drop for a female artist. She also recently launched London Audio (podcast production company in partnership with iHeartMedia), Slivington Manor Entertainment (TV production company with an overall deal at Warner Bros.), and PHE Digital. As an investor, Hilton is committed to supporting and investing in the next generation of entrepreneurs positively impacting the world at companies such as Daily Harvest, R3SET, Good Catch, ZenWTR, Podz, and many more.
