John Legere, the former CEO of T-Mobile has recently jumped into the trade of NFTs. As per reports, he recently spent a whopping $888,888.88 on one made by Steve Aoki, marking his debut in the sale of non-fungible tokens.
Called “Hairy”, the NFT in question is a 36-second-long video, featuring music — which is best described as “soundscapes in harmony with digital animations”. The digital art is the latest in a series of Aoki’s eclectic projects, which include a branded Street Fighter II arcade cabinet, and several Samsung commercials.
Aoki’s total collection of NFTs with Antonio Tudisco visuals totals at $4.25 million, with Legere’s purchase being the largest to date. The former’s ownership of Aoki’s latest video is permanently embedded in the blockchain along with a screen in acrylic that will display the NFT.
NFT sales have picked up pace in recent times. From drawings, animated GIFs, songs, or items in video games, they can contain anything in the digital realm. A non-fungible token can be unique like a real-life painting or a copy that can be traded in blockchain and could soon become one of the most important digital assets to own.
