Jordan Belfort set to drop The Wolf of Wall Street NFTs
US entrepreneur has announced launch of NFTs inspired by memoir The Wolf of Wall Street
The US entrepreneur Jordan Belfort, who wrote the memoir The Wolf of Wall Street, has announced he is about to drop a series of NFTs inspired by the popular movie that was based on his book and personal life.
“I’m dropping my NFT soon. Here’s a first look at some of the artwork inspired by The Wolf of Wall Street movie and my life. Can you spot some of the moments we referenced?” he tweeted recently.
The post was followed by: “Much more to come. I’ve been planning out how to add utility for each holder of my NFT and make this one of the most unique drops yet,” suggesting the entrepreneur is working on the creation of hybrid NFTs.
Celebrities in the metaverse
Belfort is not the only public figure to join the metaverse recently, with rapper Snoop Dogg and US media personality Paris Hilton both helping NFT artists to sell their work.
The US rapper, who recently joined Sotheby’s Metaverse together with Hilton, fetching $600,000 from the pieces auctioned, has just announced a special drop from the NFT artist Sketcha.
“A special NFT drop, that benefits kids and art, and honours some of our favourite Twitter friends, will be live tomorrow at noon PST!” tweeted Cozomo de’ Medici, Snoop Dogg’s NFT Twitter account.
The rapper specified that all proceeds from the auction are going to the Kids & Art Foundation, an organisation that, through art, helps young cancer patients.
“Each work will be one of three. One edition will be dropped to the collector it honours, the next two available for purchase. Sketcha has worked hard on these, and they are incredible. He will be donating 10% of sale proceeds.”
All portraits will be priced at 1ETH ($4,165), going live on 29 October.
“I take no proceeds from this drop. I put this together to have some fun, help some kids and expose more people to the talented pencil of Sketcha,” added Snoop Dogg.
