An influencer sold her love as an NFT for $250,000 and is going to have dinner with the mystery buyer
She told Insider the idea was inspired by Italian artist Salvatore Garau who sold an invisible sculpture titled "Io sono" (meaning "I am") for $18,300 in May, according to Artnet.com. Rentel told Insider selling her love was more than just an unusual way to make money or consolidate her place in history books, she believes it makes a statement to other women about their autonomy. "For me, selling digital love is empowering for women because we can love without compromising our freedom and individuality," she said. "Digital love is transactional, but so is marrying a man just because he is wealthy and stable, right?" she added.
