Kanye also hinted at the nature of decentralization of cryptocurrency. He said that "the powers of our political system are still anchoring on the electoral college, which was based around slavery."

While West hasn't disclosed whether or not he owns any cryptocurrency, his basic notion on the matter suggests that he wouldn't completely dismiss the thought either.

The announcement comes at the heels of Crypto.com's partnership with the global nonprofit organization, Water.org, to bring safe water and sanitation to people in need that was co-founded by Damon.

A match made in heaven, Damon said, “Much like what we’re doing with Water.org, Crypto.com is a cryptocurrency platform that shares my commitment to empowering people around the globe with the tools needed to take control of their futures.”
