These Top 12 NFT Celebrities Have Embraced NFT, Will You?

The growing popularity of NFT is unstoppable in that it transforms the way people think about digital creative work. Enthusiasts, collectors, and stockholders are going down the NFT rabbit hole. It's not unusual to find the news about celebrity NFT purchases hitting the headlines. 

More and more celebrities are either tokenizing their works or collecting other creators’ projects, and they seem to be in this verse to stay. The following are some of the well-known stars who happen to be active members of the non-fungible token community.


1. Paris Hilton


Paris Hilton NFT

Hilton may be one of the most well-known examples of a celebrity joining the NFT verse. She acquired various artworks from nft collectors and artists before dropping her project, which was built in collaboration with Super Plastic. The socialite was warmly welcomed into this virtual community for all her endeavors. Also, she keeps playing an active part in promoting these non-fungible tokens.


2. Shaquille O'Neal

It seems as though no one can escape from the charm of NFT, not even the former NBA player Shaquille O'Neal. Shaq updated his Twitter avatar with one of the Creature World’s NFTs. It led to speculation that he, too, joined the bandwagon, which later became more apparent right after Shaq joined the Creature World Discord and built an engagement with the members.


3. Snoop Dogg


Snoop Dogg NFT

Snoop Dogg is one of the many American rappers who have been actively collecting NFTs. He is even promoting some influential creators, like Fidenzas and CryptoPunks. His involvement in the NFT community became more apparent after releasing his project, "A Journey with the Dogg." He earned more than $100,000 for only one of the items during his first NFT drop.


4. Grimes


Grimes NFT

Grimes has been in the NFT industry since the beginning of 2021. She is one of the earliest musicians in blockchain tech, even long before the Beeple’s works sparked widespread attention in NFT. While these days she isn’t particularly active promoting NFT on her Twitter, her influence on the community remains the same, with her projects still being traded regularly. 


5. Lindsay Lohan

Lohan is another celebrity who joined the NFT verse around the same time as the American media personality Paris Hilton. She dropped some collaborative projects in 2021, including her controversial NFT fursona. In the same year, she launched her collection on Rarible, which reportedly sold for approximately $50,000, making it one of the most exciting movie star NFT drops. 


6. Shawn Mendes

Shawn Mendes shared his involvement in blockchain technology by launching a collaborative NFT with Genies that was created based on his fourth studio album Wonder. He gained over $600,000 through the sales of digital wearables, such as necklaces, earrings, vests, and a guitar. According to the Genies'

CEO Akash Nigam, the musician, earned somewhere around $1 million through his digital products in just 10 minutes.


7. Emily Ratajkowski

The American supermodel also shows her interest in NFT by launching her project entitled "Buying Myself Back: A Model for Redistribution." After Richard Prince painted her image on a piece of canvas, Ratajkowski reclaimed it by taking authority over the artwork for around $81,000. She later photoed herself in front of the hyperrealistic piece of art where its digital image file sold as an NFT for approximately $140,000.


8. Eminem


Eminem NFT

One of the best celebrity NFT drops comes from the American rapper, composer, and record producer who have won 15 Grammy awards, Eminem. In 2021, he dropped his first set of NFT collections through Nifty Gateway and generated around $1.8 million. Original tracks, characters from his videos, and digital action figurines were among the sold items.


9. Elon Musk


Elon Musk NFT

The wealthiest person in the world, based on the  Forbes Billionaires List 2022, is a pivotal figure in the crypto-verse. It's something undeniable because, to a lesser degree, he also jumped into the NFT craze. 

Before joining the NFT community, his tweets alone about cryptocurrency have been proven to be influential to the price of Bitcoin. So, it's not surprising knowing his discussion about the non-fungible environment quickly becomes a major topic among NFT buffs.


10. Timbaland


Timbaland NFT

Timbaland is widely known as a genius music producer whose hits never fail to enter the 20 Biggest Billboard Hits. So, it's hardly surprising knowing his approach to the NFT world was a huge success. 

The community welcomed him with open arms after putting his money on one of the Bored Ape’s pieces. He always maintains a positive engagement with the rest of the non-fungible token community. This endeavor put him in a good place when he dropped his own NFT project called "Opera Noir."


11. Ja Rule


Ja Rule NFT

Much like most celebrities, Ja Rule also got into the NFT rabbit hole through NBA Top Shot an official platform for the tokenized greatest moments in the NBA. It all started with his interest in sports. 

It has evolved into a significant element of his internet presence since the beginning of 2021. Not much different from other stars in the NFT space, Ja Rule also regularly shows his active engagement with the NFT community on Twitter. He frequently promoted his investments in some popular NFTs, like the Gutter Cat Gang.


12. Stephen Curry


Stephen Curry NFT

The point guard of the Golden State Warrior, Stephen Curry, is one of the first active NBA players who joined the non-fungible world. Even his announcement of the purchase of the Bored Ape Yacht Club was regarded as one of the most impactful NFT events in 2021. 

What makes his approach to the NFT exciting to many is that he didn’t openly publicize his buy. He even barely shows an active engagement in the community. However, changing his Twitter PFP with an Ape was more than enough to promote BAYC, crypto-verse, and of course, the greater community of NFT.

Aside from the 12 celebrities above, more stars have developed a slight interest in the non-fungible community but have yet to commit to joining the craze fully. Some are professional skater Tony Hawk, supermodel Cara Delivengne, rapper Lil Uzi Vert, Kings of Leon, and many more.

The 12 stars mentioned above are the prominent figures who have fully bought into NFTs. And there will be more and more celebrity NFT drops or buys in years to come. While their approaches to the NFT world are not always agreeable to some critics, no one can deny their endeavors in taking the non-fungible community into the mainstream.
