Promoters of NFTs on TikTok are allegedly telling young men that they can make over $10,000 a week pretending to be female strippers in the metaverse. However, it appears to just be an eye-catching way to promote their NFTs. In several posts on the platform from a promoter group, people were shown footage of luxurious sports cars and wads of cash, supposedly made through pole dancing in virtual reality.
One video, in particular, highlighted this and has accrued more than 5.9 million views at the time of writing.
"This is your sign to fake being a girl and start stripping in the metaverse," the video's caption reads. "It's giving black mirror (but fr where do I sign up)," one person commented. The group told those that were a little skeptical of this claim that the virtual stripping gig was legitimate. However, the group suggested that the only way to learn how to do it is to join their Discord server.
