Eminem Buys a Bored Ape NFT for $462,000
The hip hop megastar Marshall Mathers, better known for his stage name – Eminem, has become the latest super celebrity to purchase a Bored Ape NFT.
As CryptoPotato reported earlier, NFTs from the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) collection have seen their floor price increase by 35% while that of other popular collections decreased in turn.
Part of the reason for this might be the fact that many super celebrities such as Steph Curry have jumped on board and bought a Bored Ape for their Twitter profile pictures.
Now, the latest to join the hype is no other than the hip hop legend and megastar – Eminem.
The Oscar winner paid 123,45 ETH for Bored Ape #9055, which the community has already called EminApe.
The Twitter user who sold the ape to Eminem, carrying a Twitter handle GeeGazza, thanked the artist:
I’m living in a simulation. Thank you, Eminem, for buying my ape and joining the club. Madness. Let me write a lyric in your next single. – He said.
