Neymar updated his profile picture on January 20 by using the Bored Ape 6633 avatar. OpenSea history shows that the soccer player paid 159.99 Ethereum for the ape. If you use the current ETH price, it would cost approximately $481.6K USD. This is a 66% increase in less than a month compared to the 96ETH price of the same ape.

Neymar also owns Ape 6633, another NFT. Neymar also owns Ape 5269, a more valuable ape at present prices for which he paid 189.69 ETH (or more than $570K).

Neymar’s most valuable pet ape is equipped with laser eyes. This trend is popular among maximalist Bitcoiners, who believe that Bitcoin will soon reach $100k.

The Apes were then transferred from Neymar’s “EneJay” account to another one, under the “EneJayVault” name. This was probably done for security reasons.

Neymar also owns the very expensive Apes.

Neymar also owns the ENS neymar-loves-rarepepes.eth, in case anyone wants to send him any NFTs about the well-known “crypto meme.”

NFTs: From Niche Market to Global Trend

NFTs have become very popular recently, thanks to celebrities, athletes, famous artists, and major brands.

BAYC NFTs are representative avatars and membership tokens for an online social club. They were first created in April 2021 at a price of 0.08ETH. Since then, they have grown in value to surpass the floor price of Crypto Punks.

Twitter recently launched an NFT Verification Service. This allows users to show their NFTs in a frame that proves they are the owners of a particular Avatar. They counter critics who claim that simply saving an NFT image does not make it yours.

NFTs are currently used mainly for speculative and artistic purposes. However, they could become more popular in the future. NFTs will be used in game and software development to represent objects in metaverse. There are also potential uses in supply chain, politics and identity verification.
