Justin Bieber has become the newest member of the exclusive Bored Ape Yacht Club. He made a payment of 500 ETH for Ape #3001.
Justin Bieber is a top-tier celebrity and arguably one of the most well-known individuals on the planet. He has now become a member of the renowned Bored Ape Yacht Club.
Ape #3001 was purchased with 500 ETH by the singer. At the time of writing, this amount of ether is worth almost $1.3 million.
His monkeys are defined by the blue background of New Punk Blue, which accounts for 12% of all monkeys, a black t-shirt (3%), sad eyes (6%), dark brown fur (14%), and a bored, unshaven face (16 per cent).
The price of the Bored Ape Yacht Club collection, on the other hand, has recently surpassed 100 ETH, and it remains the most expensive collection of non-removable tokens in the history of crypto.
As we previously reported, Neymar Jr, a prominent Brazilian footballer, has also joined BAYC. He did, however, spend more than a million dollars on two NFTs.
Along with the costly monkeys from the top NFT collection, Neymar owns additional NFT, such as the ACESnikers token and others from Flipped BAYC, CryptoPunks, and Doodles.
The monkey also has a legend of rap from Detroit – Eminem. “Slim Shady” purchased NFT on December 30. For one of the digital monkeys, he paid 123.45 ethers ($452,000). Moments later, he set it up as his Twitter profile picture. By now, Eminem has already acquired at least 15 NFT on OpenSea using the nickname Shady_Holdings.
GeeGazza, a member of the BAYC from whom Eminem purchased the monkey, described the situation as “madness” and “I live in a simulation.” Eminem has yet to respond to the matter.
