NFTs have risen by leaps and bounds since early 2021, with a variety of businesses adopting these digital assets. Celebrity endorsements are a big cause for NFTs’ broad popularity. While some celebrities have issued their own NFTs, others have been eagerly accumulating some of the market’s hottest NFTs. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been invested in NFT portfolios by celebrities ranging from musicians to comedians to athletes. So, how do today’s top celebrity musicians’ NFT portfolios look?
Snoop Dogg, the American musician, earns the top place in the celebrity NFT portfolio list thanks to CryptoPunk #8472. CryptoPunk #8472, his most expensive NFT, was just sold for roughly $1.71 million. The rapper also owns CryptoPunks, Bored Apes, Meebits, Moonbirds, and other cryptocurrencies, totaling a $4.63 million NFT portfolio. Furthermore, his most recent sale exceeded $1.2 million.
The second most valuable celebrity is American DJ Steve Aoki, who has an NFT portfolio valued at roughly $903,000 and the latest sale of $484,000. Aoki is an enthusiastic NFT collector who is noted for his “Aoki curse.” He has many Bored Apes, some of which are valued at more than $200,000. He also has multiple Moonbirds, Mutant Apes, Azuki, CloneX, and others.
Madonna, the singer, songwriter, and actress, just sold $324,000, putting her in third place. Her most costly NFT, with an estimated portfolio worth of $215,490, is Bored Ape #4988. She made waves recently for her performance at the World Of Women NFT.NYC party.
Justin Bieber, a Canadian artist, made waves earlier this year for purchasing a Bored Ape for a whooping 500 ETH ($1.3 million at the time). Needless to say, this Bored Ape #3001 is the most costly NFT in his portfolio right now. He also has a Mutant Ape and several CloneX, Doodles, CyberKongz, and World of Women figures.
American musician Post Malone is another celebrity having a Bored Ape as the most expensive NFT in their inventory, with the last sale at $154,000. In reality, the famed artist has two Bored Apes, which he purchased for more than $700,000 late last year. His portfolio also includes Crypto Tards, Chromie Squiggle, Divine Anarchy, and others.
While celebrity buzz might cause FOMO and encourage you to buy in NFTs, always do your own research before taking the plunge.
