Snoop’s growing involvement with NFT

Snoop Dogg has been one of the celebrities who have embraced the notion of NFTs and Metaverse since its inception, collaborating with numerous creators.

For example, Bored, a rapper, created the app Yacht Club NFT and has worked with projects like Sandbox based on Ethereum and Clay Nation on Cardano.

Musicians may earn money in several ways thanks to NFTs, including selling their music separately from streaming services. Blockchain technology allows artists to set their pricing and collect royalties while maintaining contact with their devoted fan base.

The metaverse space is also attracting the attention of sports celebrities, aside from musicians. Feinbold previously stated that NBA star Kevin Durant of the Brooklyn Nets had joined the NFT sector.

Durant developed 26 NFT and Metaverse applications, all intended to allow consumers to acquire downloadable and unique NFT, NFT-backed media, and trade on NFT and crypto markets.

Regardless of personalities, major worldwide companies are also utilizing the NFT sector to engage with consumers. For example, the English Premier League (EPL), one of the most viewed sports leagues in the world, has an application pending that would enable it to provide digital tokens, digital collectibles, and digital trading cards.
