After all, in the entertainment business, you never know when you may fall out of favor. That being said, Ashton has an investment company called Ripple, which deals in cryptocurrency.
The company has been wildly successful and Ashton has been known to be an advocate for a number of different social and political causes. His most recent effort made one of TV’s most beloved people cry on her own show.
On a recent episode of Ellen, Ashton Kutcher and his business partner, Guy Oseary, donated $4 million to Ellen’s Wildlife Fund.
“On Wednesday morning, Ashton Kutcher had a surprise for Ellen DeGeneres. The renowned actor, together with business partner Guy Oseary, were at Ellen DeGeneres’ show to announce a huge donation to The Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund. The 40 year old actor, together with his partner, announced that they are donating $4 million to help the conservation of gorillas in the world. The donation was in the form of XRP, Ripple’s scalable digital asset which allows for real-time global payments from anywhere in the world.”
