Eminem has purchased his most expensive NFT spending $450,000 on a Ape artwork from the Bored Ape Yacht Club.
The artwork, which is now profile picture of Eminem’s official Twitter account, was purchased by the rapper from Twitter user @Gee_Gazza for 123.45 Ethereum, which translates to around $450,000.
Cryptocurrency news site Decrypt, who first reported the transaction, claim that the artwork is one of 15 NFTs bought by Eminem on the OpenSea marketplace to date.
I’m living in a simulation.
Thank you @Eminem for buying my ape and joining the club!
