Keanu Reeves Gives Hilarious Reaction After Being Asked About NFTs

The internet can't get over Keanu Reeves's brilliant reaction when asked about the concept of NFTs.

In an interview with The Verge, he was asked by Alex Heath about his feelings on cryptocurrency and NFT collectables.

Sat alongside Carrie-Ann Moss, Keanu revealed: "A friend of mine bought some for me a while back so..."

Heath said: "Have you ever done anything with it?"

"I haven't had to," Keanu responded.

"It's just like [sitting there]."

Heath then explained: "It's called HODL, where you just don't touch your crypto even if it tanks a little bit, you HODL it.

"So you're HODLing your crypto."

"Yeah, I have a little HODL," Keanu joked, to which Heath burst out laughing.

Heath then goes on to explain that The Matrix Resurrections team have made NFTs for the new movie and how the website 'broke in the first few hours'.

Heath said: "There were over 300,000 people in the queue buying these NFTs for $50.

"And so what do you think about the concept of digital scarcity and things that can't be copied."

To which Keanu laughed and said: "That are easily reproduced."

Keanu then did the most outrageous high-pitched laugh you've ever heard and Twitter were absolutely loving his reaction.

One user wrote: "Oh he gets it alright, and has absolutely the right reaction :D."

Another said: "And he’s right."

A third commented: "It’s not that he 'doesn’t get it', it’s that he knows it’s stupid and wasteful."

For those unaware, The Verge explains NFTs as something that allows you to 'buy and sell ownership of unique digital items and keep track of who owns them using the blockchain'.

They write: "NFT stands for 'non-fungible token', and it can technically contain anything digital, including drawings, animated GIFs, songs, or items in video games.

"An NFT can either be one-of-a-kind, like a real-life painting, or one copy of many, like trading cards, but the blockchain keeps track of who has ownership of the file."
