More and more celebrities are “getting involved” in the world of NFTs. They either buy one, or release one themselves. Yesterday Stephen Curry added himself to this list, after buying a Bored Ape for a whopping $180,000.
Stephen Curry’s NFT
Stephen Curry is one of the very best basketball players today and he is a role model for many. It is therefore fantastic news that he has bought an NFT.
The player of the Golden State Warriors bought a non fungible token from the Bored Ape Yacht Club for a whopping 55 ETH, today about $180,000. Like many, Stephen Curry also customized his Twitter profile picture to his own NFT.
With the purchase of his NFT, Curry buys 1 of the 10,000 Bored Apes in existence. This also buys him access to the exclusive Bored Ape Yacht Club, the club for owners of a Bored Ape.
What happens in that club, we will never know. It is really only available to owners of one of the Apes.

What does this mean for the world of NFTs?
This is very good news for the world of NFTs. The more big names express their confidence in NFTs, the better. This does not necessarily have to be literally in words, but can be done, for example, as in this case: by buying an NFT.
The more people with influence trust NFTs, the more people without influence will also trust NFTs. As a result, the market will only get bigger and thus NFTs will only be worth more.
With the increasing attention to NFTs, more and more projects are also coming to light. Every day you see new projects, similar to the BAYC or the Crypto Punks emerge. Many of these will of course never amount to anything, but the trick is to pick out the right ones.
