7 Most Expensive NFTs Bought by Celebrities

Paris NFT

A few years ago you would have been hard-pressed to find a single person who could tell you why a Non-Fungible Token can be worth millions of dollars, let alone tell you what it is. However, since then, the popularity of NFTs has grown tremendously, largely thanks to well-known individuals who have made headlines after buying them at astronomical prices.

To the uninitiated, if you look at the NFT itself and compare it to the ridiculous sum being offered for it you might think the world has gone crazy, and you would be forgiven. That has not stopped prospective buyers from lining up in their thousands though, and today buying an NFT is considered a worthwhile investment.

Various, well-known celebrities, have jumped on this bandwagon, and the abundance of their wealth means they have not shied away from paying very hefty price tags. Here, we will look at some famous people who have joined the NFT craze.
