Reality Star Selling Her Farts In Jars Turns To Sell NFTs

A reality TV star who sells her farts in jars has decided not to sell them anymore, despite making $1,000 a jar. But fans of her work need not worry too much. She is still going to sell her farts as non-replaceable tokens, better known as NFTs.

Stephanie Matto, who appeared on the reality TV show “90-Day Fiance” and gained a huge following on TikTok, says she recently had to go to the hospital with stomach complications because she ate so much fiber-rich foods to produce more and fart more.

“I thought I was having a stroke and these were my last moments,” Matto told the UK’s Jam Press about her unexpected trip to the hospital near her home in Connecticut. “I overdid it.”

Calling herself a fart entrepreneur, Matto started farting in jars in November and selling them online, documenting the food she was eating TikTok to keep her flatulence at bay, such as beans, protein muffins, and eggs. Matto was reportedly making about $50,000 a week from her highly profitable business, but it didn’t take long for the tension to get too much.

“I didn’t tell my doctors about the farts in the jar, but I did tell them about my diet. It was made clear to me that what I was experiencing was not a stroke or heart attack, but very intense gas pain,” Matto told Jam Press.

“I was advised to change my diet and take a gas-suppressing medication, which effectively ended my business,” Matto continued.

But even though Matto has retired from the real world of farts, she still aspires to the world of NFTs, where she sells cartoon images of her farts. Non-fungible tokens are usually associated with jpeg images, but they are essentially a decentralized receipt on the blockchain that can be any kind of hyperlink.

Matto has launched a website that sells 5,000 Fart Pot NFTs for 0.05 ether, which comes out at about $191 at current exchange rates, excluding ethereum’s notoriously high gas costs. In this case, the gas costs of ether, which are just transaction costs for the blockchain, are called rather appropriately.

“Everyone is a feminist until a woman farts in jars and sells it.”

Matto’s new website claims that 100 of the virtual fart pots can be exchanged for real fart pots, so it doesn’t look like Matto is giving up the fart game altogether. An additional 70 tokens can be exchanged for used panties and 30 of the fart jar tokens can be exchanged for some of Matto’s used lingerie.

“These NFTs are just as beautiful, unique and rare as my real paws! You can practically smell how delicious they are through the screen. Just use your imagination!” Matto says so in a statement on its website.

Sketch pots are the true sign of going against the grain, being a pioneer and not caring about the opinions of others. Being the very first fart jar mogul put me on the map, and now it’s your turn to be part to make my fart empire,’ Matto continued.

The fart-based businesswoman also offers Zoom meetings and even mentorship for anyone looking to set up a business like hers.

From Matto’s NFT website:

Become a Girlboss with access to a private group with Steph where you can be guided through ‘building a brand’, ‘becoming a content creator’ and ‘becoming a fartrepreneur’.

Matto sees her business venture as a powerful move, even though she has received some negative attention from trolls online.

“I even got death threats, people told me to end my life and so on. I try my best not to respond to these people and give them what they want, which is attention,” Matto told Jam Press.

“In this day and age, we need to stop tearing people down for their choices. Especially when their choices literally don’t hurt anyone,” Matto continued.

“I think there’s a lot of jealousy and a lot of anti-feminism. Everyone is a feminist until a woman farts in jars and sells it. But I think my family is relieved [about my retirement], and frankly so is my colon.”

Whatever you think about selling farts in a jar, Matto seems to be doing well financially. And we can’t think of a better way to describe how NFTs – a perfectly decent smart contract technology when it’s not just used to shill jpeg links – currently monetize the internet. Fart in a jar, indeed.
