The NFT wallets owned by popular rapper and entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk are worth $95 million, according to DappRadar.

Vaynerchuk’s portfolio contains the bulk of the value – $81.89 million at the time of writing. His assets include several NFTs from top groups such as CryptoPunks (he has a grand total of 60 in total), Bored Ape Yacht Club and World of Women.

Snoop Dogg is an avid NFT collector who also has several CryptoPunk, Meebits and Fidenza NFTs in his portfolio, with the most expensive NFT CryptoPunk #3831 worth $2.57 million at current prices.

The wallets were featured as part of a blog post from DappRadar that compiled a list of the top 10 NFT wallets for celebrities. Other notables include Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian ($4.9 million), YouTuber, and future US presidential candidate Logan Paul ($4.36 million).

Having Snoop Dogg on the list is no surprise, as he has launched several NFT projects, acquired virtual ownership in the Metaverse, and partnered with Sandbox in late January to launch “Snoop Avatars.”

Vaynerchuk is also very active on the scene, launching her own venture called Veefriends, which has generated more than $132,000 in secondary sales since its launch in May 2021.

More NFT resistance
Popular K-pop star Sunmi (also known as Miyane) has received a backlash from fans about the NFT collectibles that she and the Abyss Company released last week.

The Sunmiya Club project was launched on February 23 and consists of 10,000 computer-generated NFTs with various Sunmi animation avatars. However, some of her fans criticized the artist for simply wanting to “make some quick money for her company”.

On Monday, Sunmi shared a statement from Abyss regarding the setback, although the company simply reiterated its long-term stance on the project and did not appear to be responding to any fan concerns, stating, “We ask for your continued love and support.” In future performances of our artist. ”

Fans were quick to take this statement, with Twitter user “cruelrush” also expressing environmental concerns about NFT while other fans threatened to boycott K-pop Idol:

“We want to actively support Sunmi, but not at the expense of our surroundings. NFTs are bad. We want to support and interact with Sunmi by purchasing their albums and songs. Going to their show. We wish there were more online concerts to support what they wrote.”

With such friends.
While Valve CEO Gabe Newell is a sensitive issue for the gaming community, he praised NFT and discussed the potential benefits of integrating the technology with Triple A games.

His company owns digital game distribution giant Steam, and in an interview with Rock Paper Shotgun, Newell was quick to draw a line between NFT technology and the people who currently use it.

He noted that core features such as distributed ledgers, the idea of ​​digital ownership, and shared universes are “very affordable” and should not be overlooked:

“You have to separate the underlying technology that the participants are using that technology. It’s like you’re a chemist looking at nitrocellulose and you think, ‘Oh, yeah, we can do something really cool with that.'” ”
“However, humans in space tend to engage in a lot of criminal activity and a lot of inaccurate actions. So it’s a lot more about the actors than the underlying technology or the rationale for what we’re doing,” he added.

Thanks for the “support” Newell, I appreciate it.

Dolly Parton launched Dollyverse
Famous country music icon Dolly Parton has launched an NFT group and marketplace called “Dollyverse”.

Although the name suggests something related to virtual reality and the Metaverse, Parton’s project mainly consists of iconic artwork and music as part of a promotion for her upcoming album Run, Rose, and Run.

The album is also accompanied by a book of the same title, co-written by James Patterson, bestselling author of titles such as Alex Cross, Michael Bennett and Women’s Murder Club.

The Dollyverse platform is developed by Eluvio and will host NFT sales along with a live music performance on March 18 with Parton and songs from the new album.

The NFTs will be on sale during and after the live performance, and users who watch the show will also get free NFTs to prove they attended the iconic event.
