KUALA LUMPUR, January 5 – American rapper Eminem has purchased a Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT for US $ 462,000 (RM 1.94 million).
He acquired the non-fungible token (NFT), which he has since defined as his Twitter profile picture, on the OpenSea platform for 123.45 ethers, or about US $ 462,000, Insider reported.
Bored Ape Yacht Club is one of the most popular NFT sets on OpenSea, with a current floor price of 73.5 ethers, or around US $ 280,000 (RM 1.17 million) each.
