The Queen is IN: Madonna fueled the MetaVerse with her first NFT

Madonna has entered the Metaverse. 

The “Queen of Pop” announced on Instagram and Twitter late Thursday that she had acquired an NFT from the popular Bored Ape Yacht Club collection worth more than half-a-million dollars. Madonna is the latest celebrity to publicly endorse digital apes, following high profile purchases by stars like Justin Beiber, Paris Hilton and Eminem. 

“I finally entered the metaverse,” Madonna wrote on her post. “My very own Ape! What should I name her?”

Bored Ape Yacht Club is a non-fungible token collection built on the Ethereum blockchain featuring profiles of cartoon primates. OpenSea transactions show that Madonna used crypto-payment company Moonpay to complete the purchase. Moonpay bought Ape #4988 earlier this month for 180 Ether (now worth about $570,000). The NFT was transferred to another wallet two days ago, before Madonna posted it on her Instagram account. 

IIn January,  Justin Bieber purchased an ape NFT for 500 Ether ( which is now worth about $1.5 million dollars)
