- Cryptobros are now paying thousands for their very own digital girlfriend. Bull Market Girlfriends, an NFT marketplace on OpenSea, has already raked in around $1 million in profits selling digital female portraits.

- The self-proclaimed “digital pimp” described how he proudly displays a printout of the painting on his wall and now thrives in his workspace knowing that his NFT girlfriend “won’t run off with some other guy.”
- Jake went on to explain, “I have all the power in the relationship, and it’s very reassuring for a guy like me that doesn’t have quite the same dominance with real-life women.”
