Logan Paul has come a long way since his vlogging days on YouTube. He is basically an international celebrity now. He has always taken advantage of his popularity. Now he has another big idea of capitalizing on his fame.

Paul owns one of the most expensive Pokémon cards in the world. In fact, he has a Guinness World Record for buying the most expensive Pokémon card at a staggering $5,275,000. He also flexed that card by wearing it around his neck when he appeared at WWE WrestleMania 38. He is now looking to sell pieces of this card as NFTs.

Since the start of the year, the popularity of NFTs has skyrocketed. They are basically a non-fungible token, which is a financial security comprised of digital data recorded in a blockchain. Each NFT is one of a kind and its ownership is recorded on a blockchain.

Now that Logan Paul has turned his card into an NFT. Each piece of it is listed for $0.10 on his platform Liquid Marketplace. Aside from that, Paul claims 49 percent ownership of the card and will store it in a TBD community vault.

It will be interesting to see what becomes of this idea and how much attention it generates. The said NFT listing went live on July 9. Logan Paul might have purchased the world’s most expensive card, but it seems he only views it as an investment.
