Eminem, the renowned award-winning rapper has joined the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) due to his latest purchase of the non-fungible token apes made last Thursday on the OpenSea platform for a staggering amount of 123.45 ETH, which is approximately 462,000 USD at the time of purchase.
The profoundly admired entertainer swiftly made the dazed-looking ape, who is attired in a brown military-style cap and hip hop clothing, his Twitter profile picture.
In a recent tweet, BAYC member GeeGazza, who vended the ape NFT, thanked the entertainer for buying the non fungible token. He commented,
“I’m living in a simulation.”
He further added,
“Madness. Let me write a lyric in your next single.”
GeeGazza had been anticipating for months that the entertainer would purchase the ape.
The artist manager of Web 3 digital agency Six, Georgio Constantinou, recently tweeted that the firm had helped Eminem buy “the EminApe.”
It is to be noted that Eminem’s interest in the NFT domain is not his 1st brush with digital assets. In the year 2018, one of the tracks on his album “Kamikaze”, ‘Not Alike’ mentioned Bitcoin.
Interestingly, BAYC has been among the biggest sellers on OpenSea, assisting to drive its most recent ten billion dollars valuation.
