Celebrity-backed NFTs leave some investors ‘financially crippled’
NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are blockchain-based tokens that authenticate digital assets, making them perfect for artists, musicians, film stars.

Celebs to watch in NFTs

Tyler took advantage of Floyd Mayweather’s dark NFT campaign on Twitter earlier this year.

Tyler’s “greatest motivator” for hand-to-hand fighting was Mayweather. Tyler was searching for chances to speculate and believed “Cash May” Mayweather was worth keeping an eye on.

Mayweather was dressed in a Louis Vuitton vest, a diamond armband, jewelry, and a gold watch. Floyd ‘Bring-in-That-Money’ Mayweather believes this.

Tyler, 35, a property manager whose family owns a small shipping firm in Miami, claimed he and his mother spent $12,000 on nonfungible tokens (NFTs). Bunny shots like the famous Bored Ape Yacht Club images were used for this project, which sparked a surge in NFT art endeavors.

Tyler overpaid for the NFTs.

“This effectively hampered me financially,” Tyler said, asking to be named by his most popular name because he is concerned about online trolls who criticize NFT financial supporters. Tyler is attempting to keep gas and food expenditures under control as the company grows. Mayweather and other marketers, he feels, “took their benefits and walked on while everyone who scraped by was humiliated.”

The Bored Bunny gang promised customers “2x, 5x, maybe 10x the worth of [they’re a] investment,” but the NFTs tied to the images plummeted after a short boom and have yet to recover. A Bored Bunny NFT has a floor price of 0.05 Ethereum ($104.09), down from 0.4 Ethereum ($1,504.54).

Crypto pundits, guard dogs, and, unexpectedly, some powerhouses encourage computerized firms funded by high-profile supporters who soon lose value on a wave of NFT energy. “Floor pull” is a cryptocurrency word. According to advertising transparency specialists, notables are supporting NFTs without adequately warning their fans about the financial hazards.

Exhausted Bunny’s organizers denied any wrongdoing. Mayweather’s marketing representative did not respond.

Many celebrities and power players have begun to sell NFTs. According to Bonnie Patten, the executive director of the consumer advocacy organization Truth in Advertising, many of them do not declare that they were paid and do not understand (or minimize) the financial dangers involved.

“Let them eat cake” in the twenty-first century, according to Patten. She cautioned that mixing the “extremely unstable” NFT economy with “Wild West” advertising is a recipe for catastrophe. It has the potential to bankrupt weak fans.

The multibillion-dollar advertising industry has long been eager, with online celebrities luring followers to purchase harmful weight reduction goods and fraudulent health treatments. The frenetic marketing of NFTs has raised the stakes to the point where forces must be reckoned with and a few celebrities are criticizing one another’s behavior.

FaZe Banks, and Richard Bengtson, shared screenshots of suspected Bored Bunny conversations paying him $500,000 to $750,000 to write about their NFTs. He “didn’t make this error” since he “taught himself.”

Clan Upset disregarded input requests. Exhausted Bunny refused to reveal how much it paid its “business partners,” claiming a nondisclosure agreement.

Exhausted Bunny said indirect messages that the band is “effectively striving to perfect this assignment,” but that it is “not responsible for financial backers not selling” at the appropriate time. It claims that it got death threats from enraged Bored Bunny customers, prompting it to break relations with the community and that it is attempting to “expand the project as much as possible.”
