When asked on her return to WWE, and the decision on receiving pay in crypto, Danielle Moinet stated:
"I am excited to be converting some of my pay from the PPV into crypto with Hedge. As more professional athletes are starting to get paid in crypto I think it’s important for female athletes to as well. I am excited to be at the forefront of that movement!"
