Actor and venture capitalist Ashton Kutcher posted a video on Twitter in which he, his wife Mila Kunis and Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin explained the project to new entrants.
For the first minute, the video shows Kutcher asking Kunis for basic terms related to cryptocurrency and blockchain technology in her home area.
After Kunis gave simple one-sentence definitions to explain “cryptocurrency”, “blockchain” and “decentralization”, Kutcher asked for a description of Ethereum. The camera then moves to the right, moves past Kunis, and sees Buterin sitting on a table.

Buterin started with a detailed explanation of the basic components of Ethereum and noted how the smart contract protocol differs from chains for sole purpose, citing Bitcoin as an example of this.
“Ethereum is a general purpose blockchain […] an open platform that allows anyone to build their own applications on it, and anything Ethereum based is safe and secure […] said Buterin.
“Because of [Ethereum] With the support of a programming language, developers have unlimited creativity in the things they actually create on Ethereum. So you can use Ethereum to create crypto, NFT or many other things. “
Kutcher replied, “Yeah, that makes sense.”
The links and hashtags accompanying the video indicate that it was created to promote Kunis’ “Stoner Cats” series of inedible tokens. NFT Stoner Cats buyers will also have access to streaming episodes of the Kunis animated series of the same name. It claims to be “The First NFT Animated Series”.

Kutcher is no stranger to NFTs as he encrypted a scribbled log in August 2020, with the physical original being burned before the token was put up for auction.
His venture capital firm, A-Grade Investments, has also supported leading companies in the crypto space, including payment processor BitPay in 2013 and blockchain security firm BitGo in 2014.
