Legendary American rapper Eminem has joined the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) after buying of the non-fungible tokens (NFTs) apes on the OpenSea platform for 123.45 ether which was equivalent to $462,000 at the time of purchase.
Following the purchase, the award winning rapper quickly changed his twitter profile picture to an ape wearing a brown military-style hat, hip hop clothing and dazed expressions.
BAYC has been among the best sellers across OpenSea platform, this situation has largely contributed to BAYC reaching a market valuation of $10 billion.
Eminem’s interest in crypto and NFTs goes back to 2018 when he mentioned Bitcoin and Not Alike in one of the tracks in his Album named ‘Kamikaze.’
GeeGazza, a member of BAYC who sold the ape to Eminem, posted a tweet thanking Eminem for buying the NFT and also welcoming him to the club.
“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,” tweeted GeeGazza.
