The famous rapper, producer and actor Snoop Dogg agreed to become a member of the XRP Community Night, which will be held simultaneously with the Week of Blockchain in New York in May, Ripple informs.
The event will be held to mark the company’s activities aimed at promoting and developing the XPR digital currency, as well as the xRapid and XRP Ledger platforms. The event will be private, only for invited guests. However, the company will hold two draws of ten tickets in their microblog on Twitter.

We would like to remind you that the rapper is not the first time to be a welcome guest on the crypto party. In December of last year, he took part and was a DJ at the closing of the ICO startup SparkleCOIN, which was held in Beverly Hills. The main goal of the project is to unite the world of cryptocurrency with traditional business.
Snoop Dogg’s invitation to the event was not random, as it’s no secret that he has been interested in the cryptocurrency industry for many years. In 2013 a rapper wrote on his social networks that his album could be bought for Bitcoin.
It is worth noting that, since recently, events and promotions devoted to cryptocurrencies have begun to enjoy great popularity among celebrities. For example, a rapper’s colleague, 50 Cent, sold his album Animal Ambition for BTC several years ago, which at that time brought him 400 thousand dollars.
