Several big names have been testing out NFTs.
Earlier, Kings of Leon became the first band to release their latest album with an NFT, and Grimes sold a collection of NFTs for about $6 million. Many other big names like Elon Musk, Jack Dorsey, Banksy, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, basketball player Josh Hart, a Los Angeles pizza shop, toilet paper brand Charmin, and Taco Bell have also been testing NFTs out. This NFT comes on the heels of The Weeknd’s breakout moment, ‘House Of Balloons’ mixtape arriving on streaming services in its original form for the first time, to mark ten years since its initial release.
