The latest celebrity to join the NFT world, Atlanta rapper Future has just dropped a whopping $280, 000 AUD to become a member of the Bored Ape Yacht Club. Spending 49 ETH on the grey-coated yacht captain #4672, Future was quick to update his Twitter profile in celebration of the newly-purchased collectible.
The purchase comes a week after fellow rapper Post Malone added to his already-stacked collection of Bored Apes, which are one of the largest NFT collections on the Ethereum marketplace. Currently, the Bored Ape Yacht Club is home to some 10,000 purchasable apes, all of whom look decidedly bored.
