Kanye West is one of the most successful rap moguls of all time and there’s no denying that. He previously claimed that he has no interest in making NFTs. That being said, Kanye West appears to have reconsidered NFTs.
West filed trademark applications for non-fungible tokens and other things just a few months after claiming he wasn’t interested in them. Kanye filed many trademarks linked to NFTs, according to Fortune. “Blockchain-based non-fungible assets,” “currency and tokens,” and “online retail store services showcasing… digital art” are among Ye’s applications.
Kanye’s papers signal a significant shift in his views on NFTs. In an Instagram post that has since been deleted, he rejected NFTs earlier this year. A snapshot of a handwritten note expressing a similar sentiment was included in Kanye’s post.
His written message, on the other hand, left the door open for NFTs. Although Kanye was hesitant to join the NFT bandwagon at first, his name was eventually tied to a non-fungible token. As an NFT, one user minted Ye and Kim Kardashian’s divorce papers.
The divorce papers were put up for sale on OpenSea, a non-fungible token marketplace. The vendor, who wishes to remain anonymous, placed the price at well over $400,000 but received no offers. Check out the video below.
