Doja Cat is breaking new records and not just in the music arena.
As AfroTech previously revealed, the singer has been crypto curious, launching her first non-fungible token (NFT) collection earlier this month with green NFT marketplace OneOf, founded by Lin Dai, Josh James and Adam Fell.
“I don’t know that much about NFT’s,” said Doja Cat, according to information previously provided to AfroTech. “But what I do know is that they can be bad for the environment and cost a fortune. Mine won’t. Get over to OneOf.com and check out my first NFT collection now.”
In her first-ever auction, the “Need To Know” singer’s single edition crystal token sold to the highest bidder for an impressive $188,888 (Not bad for the crypto newbie). According to iHeartRadio, Doja’s “item served as the largest auctioned item in Tezos history. It even outsold JAY-Z’s auction on Sotheby’s, which went for $139,000.”
Plus, Doja is not only the first artist to launch a collection with the platform, she also broke the company’s record for the highest NFT item sold.
According to information provided to AfroTech earlier this month, Doja wanted to ensure her collection would be eco-friendly and affordable for fans. And, the partnership turned out to be a match made in heaven. OneOf is built on the Tezos blockchain, recognized as an “energy efficient proof-of-stake network,” the company’s website states, and it offers some of the most affordable transaction fees for users looking to tap into the world of NFTs.
On top of the accessibility Doja’s collection provides, the highest bidder is set to receive the ultimate experience filled with various perks.
“The holder of the hyper-rare, unique Token will be the inaugural honorary Mayor the OneOf Planet Doja Discord channel… and win the Super Golden Ticket: an all-expenses-paid, VIP flyaway experience for two ( 2 ) people to one concert on the upcoming Doja Cat tour plus dinner at one of her favorite restaurants; AND because this is the FIRST EVER 1 of 1 minted on the entire OneOf Platform, holder will receive one ( 1 ) of every Gold tier NFT from every OneOf curated music artist collection, FOREVER,” the company says.
As fans are looking for new ways to interact with their industry favorites, NFTs are clearly a gleaming gateway for celebrities to make a unique print in the ever-growing marketplace.
