Troy Warren for CNT #NFT
Rapper Eminem is the latest to hop on the non-fungible token (NFT) bandwagon, purchasing his first Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) for 123.45 Ether ($452,000).
BAYC NFTs, for those who are unaware, are a popular collection of 10,000 distinct bored apes made by Yuga Labs. According to dappradar.com, this collection has sold more than $500 million so far. Not only Eminem but famous celebrities including basketball legend Steph Curry, music musician Post Malone, and even American TV presenter Jimmy Fallon are also amongst the owners of BAYC NFTs.
The NFT, called “EminApe,” depicts an ape clad in khaki army fatigues and a gold chain necklace, resembling Eminem. The digital artwork was sold by BAYC member GeeGazza, who subsequently tweeted that the transaction becoming a reality is “madness.” Eminem has made the Ethereum-based ape his Twitter profile photo.
