Neymar and Paris Hilton join the ranks
DappRadar’s monthly list of the most valuable celebrity NFT portfolios is a great way to keep track of VIP net worths in the space. Seemingly every celebrity what it’s like to become part of the NFT space, as the scene is bursting with excitement this January.
With the first month of 2022 rolling by quickly, it’s time to see what the top celebrity NFT portfolios hold. Gary Vee continues to hold the top spot with an NFT portfolio worth over $75 million. He is the unbeatable leader by a stretch, as runner-up Snoop Dogg barely hit the $11 million mark.
Impressively, all wallets in this list contain NFTs worth well over half a million dollars. Scroll down to see the complete list, and discover which celebrity managed to climb up the ranks this January.
An important note here is that celebrities attract a lot of attention to their wallets and receive thousands of NFTs as gifts. We have manually sifted through all of these celebrity wallets to bring readers a more filtered view. For that to happen, we’ve excluded NFTs that are gifted to these wallets. Consider this if you see discrepancies between this list and the values displayed on the DappRadar Portfolio Tracker.
An NFT stores value, while crypto is crashing
While 2021 saw the NFT space explode and become the most active sector on the blockchain, 2022 seems to be the year celebrities will ape into NFTs. VIPs like Paris Hilton and Neymar are not only revealing their interest in NFT, but also showing off huge portfolios already. While no one has managed to compete with Gary Vee’s impressive $75 million, the overall value of celebrity portfolios is growing.
NFTs are becoming an important way to store value in the crypto space. While token prices are dipping at the moment, interest in the NFT space continues to grow. What’s more, celebrities have started recognizing this value. With the start of 2022, we saw big names in the music industry like Eminem and Diplo enter the space. Additionally, many Hollywood stars like Gwyneth Paltrow, Eva Longoria, and Jimmy Fallon also revealed their purchases.
It is true that most of them used Moonpay to facilitate the transaction, however, their willingness to show off their purchases serves as an important confidence boost for the whole industry. Despite the falling prices of crypto tokens, the space is bursting with activity and excitement.
