Famous rapper, Soulja Boy, has received his personal Ethereum (ETH) address: soujaboy.eth. This customized Ethereum address was gifted to him by the co-founder of Rainbow wallet, Mike Demarais. This address makes it easy for users to send him ETH.
Mike Demarais tweeted, “yo soulja lemme give you “souljaboy.eth” so you don’t have to use this long ass address.”
“Let’s make it happen,” Soulja Boy replied.

After the offer was accepted by the rapper, Demarais added that some “mildly elite nerd shit” might be required to connect it to the rapper’s regular wallet. “bless u soulja — it’s gonna require u to do some mildly elite nerd shit to actually hook it up to your ETH address but i believe in you,” he noted.
What he’s trying to buttress is that there are a few complicated steps to make the name work with the address. However, the steps didn’t take Soulja Boy long to get it done. Afterward, Blockchain explorer confirmed that the Ethereum address belongs to the rapper.
Demarais also suggested that after setting up his new personalized ENS address, Souja Boy should change his Twitter profile name to “souljaboy.eth” since “it’s a tradition in the Ethereum community and signals to people that you’re a part of the new Internet.”
