In 2021, celebrities flooded into the cryptocurrency field, and the non-fungible token (NFT) asset boom also expanded with celebrities. In the past few weeks, musicians, artists, professional sports athletes and many more have immersed their toes in the NFT ecosystem.
Historical market data on nonfungible.com shows that 27,850 non-fungible token (NFT) assets have been sold in the past 7 days. According to statistics on March 14, 2021, the total price of these 27,850 transactions was US$42 million, and the average price of each NFT transaction was US$1,520. Now there are new NFT milestone sales almost every day, new celebrities create NFTs, and countless new NFT markets. Due to the storage methods of these pictures, music files and other types of collectibles, the hype of NFT has also caused a lot of controversy. In March, the NFT bustle stimulated many celebrities to give up their own irreplaceable token assets.
For example, NFT market Makersplace announced that the No. 1 player in the NFL, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, plans to abandon a series of NFTs.
Mahomes is very popular. In the 2019-20 playoffs, Mahomes led the Chiefs into the Super Bowl LIV. The Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers. At 3:30 PM (PST) on March 17th, Mahomes will launch a series of NFTs that “center on important moments in Mahomes’ life”.
The Makersplace team said: “It is undeniable that Mahomes has a huge impact on our culture, especially in the United States. This is undeniable.” “One of the greatest quarterbacks ever, Mahomes’ influence is not limited to sports, but more It is the source of inspiration for everyone. Through this Drop, he will reveal another side of himself that the world has not yet seen. We are happy to introduce this new aspect of Mahomes to the world and let fans have a part of his legacy.”
The Mahomes NFT series followed the end of the National Football League (NFL) closely following the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Rob “Gronk” Gronkowski entered). Collectibles of popular NFL players appear on the Opensea.io marketplace, and the collectibles commemorate Gronk’s four historic tournaments with five limited edition NFT trading cards.
“The crown jewel of the Open will be the rare 1-1 Rob Genkowski’s career refraction card, which includes a meeting and greetings with’Glenk’ and his game next season. Tickets for the game,” Opensea’s instructions pointed out. Rob Gronkowski’s NFT series sold for more than $1.75 million in ETH on the market. The sale of the “Grankowski Career Selection Refraction Card” closes at 7pm (Eastern Time) on Sunday.
The total average price of Gronk NFT card sales is $5,000 per card, and Gronkowski’s NFT debut is the highest sales ever for an athlete’s personal NFT ($433,000).
Not long ago, King Lyons released their latest album “When You See Yourself”, which includes NFT and “Golden Eye” vinyl records showing exclusive album illustrations. The band cooperated with the blockchain technology company Yellow Heart. Statistics show that since the album was released on March 5, Kings of Leon NFTs have raised $2 million from NFTs. The $500,000 in NFT funds has been donated to Crew Nation of Live Nation to assist music staff during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Last Wednesday, multi-platinum recording artist Lil Pump also released a series of NFTs through the Sweet platform. In addition, with the emergence of the new NFT series, Lil Pump released a rare “Esskeetit Diamond VVS” NFT asset designed to replicate the appearance of a piece in the US rapper’s multi-million dollar jewelry series.
“This is the future. Now you can live like me and have a rare NFT collection from one of my favorite chains.” Lil Pump commented.
In addition to Lil Pump, Nadya Tolokonnikova, a Russian conceptual artist, political activist and founder of Pussy Riot, has also ventured into the world of non-fungible token (NFT) assets. The artist released a new video for her latest single “PANIC ATTACK”, which is directed by award-winning AR creator Asad J. Malik and produced by his holographic company Jadu.
Tolokonnikova’s singles were also released in four NFTs, and collectors can buy them on Foundation. NFT proceeds will be donated to the shelter for victims of domestic violence in Russia that Pussy Riot has supported since April 2020.
Celebrities have also collaborated on NFT sales with famous street performer Alec Monopoly and Latin superstar Ozuna. The organization will launch an independent “Artgrails” with celebrity art dealer Avery Andon (Avery Andon). The asset listed by Artgrails is a limited edition NFT, and the website artgrails.com explains that “All versions use Queue-It technology.” This means that the protocol can resist bots and protect the market from server overload. Markets like Makersplace and Opensea are connected to Metamask, a wallet based on Web3 Ethereum (ETH).
There may be more celebrities, musicians and professional athletes jumping on the NFT trend. Although it is difficult to say whether it is possible, the NFT ecosystem, and even part of it, may gradually disappear. Supporters of NFT bet that irreplaceable token assets will continue to change countless industries and reshape the landscape. Celebrities have also seen a lot of money flow into the NFT space, which can actually tell social celebrities what the true value of their tokenized names is.
