According to reports, Shawn and his team of four “spent a lot of time and energy in the planning and execution” of the NFT products.

The doting father-of-two “worked and held meetings in his office all day” for almost half a year while “sacrificing rest” to get ready for the launch, but still insisted on personally sending his three-year-old son Cody to school.
