Nowadays, there is a craze within celebrities relating to crypto by-products, especially the one called NFTs or the Non-Fungible Tokens. When this product was launched, more or less, people had thought that it was entirely useless, however, it served its purpose. Instead, it became one of the most heavily demanded crypto by-products.
One of the major reasons of its adoption was its unique use. The sole purpose of NFT was to compile sets of collectible items, goods, merchandise, etc., which are contained in digitalized imagery form. Once complied in NFTs, then such NFTs were sold through public auctions. Well-famed, well-established artists, sportsmen, celebrities as well as those who were losing their fame, adopted the use of NFTs.
While in the initial phase of its adoption, most of the celebrities used NFTs for charitable purposes. But today, most of celebrities are aware that they can make huge piles of money through NFTs. In this connection, since 2021, a string of famous celebrities of the world have been issuing their NFTs for earning money. It is no shock that the response they were expecting was beyond their imagination. For instance, lately, there were certain NFTs whose value arose from a couple of thousand dollars into millions of dollars.
For instance, the latest issuer of NFTs is the worldwide famous rapper hailing from the US called “Lil Pump”. In the last week, the rapper had successfully issued his own version of NFTs by engaging the services of Sweet. Sweet is an experienced NFT auction assistance which had already in the past concluded several high-profile NFTs auctions.
With Sweet’s services, Lil Pump had put for sale through public auction NFTs which consisted of collectibles belonging to the rapper.
A data compiled by nonfungible.com suggests that in the past week there were record sales of NFTs. It noticed that approximately 27,580 NFTs issued by globally renowned celebrities came under public auction. Resultantly, the celebrities collectively generated sale proceeds up to US$ 42 Million.

From the past week till to date, there are several other NFTs which are being issued on daily basis. Meanwhile, other notable celebrities as well are in the process of issuing out their NFTs soon.
