Singer Madonna purchased an NFT from the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) collection. The purchase of a token for 180 ETH (~$556,000) was made through the concierge service of the infrastructure provider MoonPay.
According to OpenSea, MoonPay bought the BAYC #4988 token last week and transferred it to a wallet believed to belong to Madonna on Wednesday. Seven months ago, the same NFT was sold for 46.5 ETH.
On Thursday, MoonPay also transferred BAYC #1506 to an unknown address. After that, rapper Wiz Khalifa put the token on his Twitter avatar.
Previously behind the BAYC collections, Yuga Labs has raised a $450 million investment at a $4 billion valuation.
Recall that in March 2022, the BAYC team introduced the ApeCoin token associated with the project ecosystem and held an airdrop among NFT holders.
