During an interview with The Verge promoting The Matrix Awakens with Carrie-Anne Moss, Keanu Reeves asked about crypto. The John Wick star revealed that has a little crypto.

“A friend of mine brought some for me awhile back,” Reeves said. But, he hasn’t done anything with it because” I haven’t had to.”

Interviewer Alex Heath explained to Reeves that “That’s called HODL, when you just don’t touch your crypto.” While it’s unclear which cryptocurrencies Reeves was gifted, he said “Yeah, I have a little HODL.”

Reeves and co-star Carrie-Ann Moss were promoting The Matrix Awakens, a new digital experience showing off the capabilities of Unreal Engine 5, as well as promoting The Matrix Resurrections when being asked about crypto. Among many things, they addressed questions on the topics of Cryptocurrencies, the Metaverse, NFTs, and a Matrix video game, not to mention the possibility of VR-based pornography in the future.

Warner Bros. the studio behind the Matrix films has been actively participating in the crypto space as well. They’ve launched a series of 100,000 NFTs in order to promote the new movie’s launch back in November. These NFTs consist of a plethora of Matrix-themed avatars, which all ran at $50 per token. Every one of these NFTs offered any of their holders a choice between a blue or red pill, paying homage to (one of) the franchises’ most popular thematic moments.

Reeves did, however, express some skepticism regarding NFTs during the interview. Upon being asked about “digital scarcity” and “things that can’t be copied,” the actor stated “that are easily reproduced” followed by laughter.

Regarding the news about the metaverse, Reeves was quick to ask “Can we just not have metaverse be invented by Facebook? The concept of metaverse is way older than that.” he stated. “I’m just like, c’mon, man.”
