Madonna has tweeted that she’s ‘finally entered the metaverse,’ having purchased a Bored Ape NFT, weeks after her “controversial” nude NFT collaboration with Beeple.

It’s a modified NFT, according to DappRadar, and was purchased using Moonpay, a fiat on-ramp payments provider. It’s a lot easier for celebrities to buy NFTs this way than it is for them to first buy Ethereum on a crypto exchange and then navigate OpenSea.

The legendary singer, actress, and celeb purchased Bored Ape #4988 for the equivalent of 180 ETH in USD, which was slightly over $466,000.

Madonna also changed her Twitter profile picture to show off the Yuga Labs artwork – following in the footsteps of other celebs like Elon Musk, Timbaland, & Steph Curry.

What’s Different About Madonna’s NFT?

According to OpenSea, the singers Bored Ape NFT has several rare traits, including: an orange background (only 13% have this trait), sleeveless logo T (only 1% have this type of t-shirt), wide eyed (only 5% have this expression), DMT fur (only 2% have this style of fur), S&M hat (only 2% have this type of headgear), and Bored cigarette (only 7% have a ciggy in their mouth).

Madonna’s NFT collection isn’t over yet; she has 10 more on her Ethereum address. They appear to have been sent to her by fans, as there is no clear record of Madonna purchasing those NFTs on Etherscan.

Apart from tagging Beeple (digital artist Mike Winkelmann) and letting followers know about their collaboration on May 10th, this is the first time Madonna has tweeted about NFTs.

What Is An NFT?

NFT stands for Non-fungible token. The Non-fungible in NFT simply means that the token is unique and can’t be replaced with something else. A bitcoin, for example, is fungible; trade one for another and you’ll get the same item. A one-of-a-kind trade card, on the other hand, is not fungible. You’d get something altogether different if you swapped it for a different card.
