BAYC Celebrities

Recently, Eminem also dropped $500,000 on a Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT.

The Bored Ape Yatch Club (BAYC) NFTs have sold out like hot cakes among famous personalities in 2021- Jimmy Fallon, Post Malone, Stephen Curry, Logan Paul, Marshmellow, and the list goes on. The BAYC saw hundreds of millions of dollars in sales volume last year, and it’s rapidly emerging as an up-and-coming brand in the non-fungible tokens’ market, as well as bringing the craze out into the mainstream.

Meanwhile, Meta is looking into allowing users to make, promote, and sell NFTs on Facebook and Instagram. If the corporation offers such tools, it will be the most public display of support for NFTs, helping to cement the controversial asset’s place in the digital world.
