Top 10 Celebrities that have bought NFTs
The internet has changed the world. It has made it easier for people to share messages and designs across the globe just with ease. Nevertheless, the solution of getting information across the world comes with a delicate problem.
The problem of revenue and ownership. The problem of revenue comes because no one can get paid for what is posted on the Internet.
The consequence is advertisement. Advertisements that usually come up during reading or watching videos are very boring and distracting but no one could help because that is the only way of revenue generation. Many companies resorted to advertisements so that they can generate money while relaying information.
The advent of NFT came to solve these two problems. People do not necessarily need to generate more money from advertisements when it is known that the more people appreciate an article, the more value the article gets.
This does not only come with articles but with any kind of design. Once an article or a design becomes an NFT, it cannot be replaced or destroyed because it becomes a digital imprint that is associated with the owner. With this, there is no chance for plagiarism or intellectual property theft.
An NFT stands for non-fungible token. It means that whatever article or token you have is unique. Many celebrities have NFTs to their names. Nigerian music mogul, Don Jazzy spoke about buying a NFT and making $300,000 from it in 2021.
This article is bent to tell you those celebrities, the tokens they got and the price at which they got them

Thanks to Moonpay, the amount with which this celebrity bought her bored ape has not been revealed. But surely, it should be at a staggering price.
9: Neymar Jnr
Acquiring an ape with blown bubble gum on the mouth with 160 ether, Neymar tweeted, ”I am an ape”. With this tweet, he has joined the BAYC community.
10: Mark Cuban
This list would have been incomplete if there is a cutout business mogul. And that is where Mark comes in.
Though his NFT was a gift, he could have rejected it if there is no intrinsic value in the gift worth about $250,000. Mark has been advocating for cryptocurrencies for years now.
The ownership of NFTs is both an investment and a luxury to enjoy. These celebrities do not accumulate fun but as an investment vehicle.
According to Paul Graham on his twitter account, ”NFTs can be used for so many different things that you are inviting history to make fun of you if you dismiss them.”
