Snoop Dogg and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are starting to go hand in hand.
As the world continues to catch on to the latest crypto craze, more and more people are ready to put their money where their mouth is.
Previously, AfroTech reported that entertainers like Future and Steve Harvey had joined in on the fun by changing their Twitter Aviators to digitized characters as they get hip to all things relating to NFTs. Now, people are taking things a step further by using the form of currency to go as far as purchasing land!
From Bitcoin to NFTs, everyone wants in on the digital investments and the ever-changing landscape is one to keep your eyes on if you’re looking to learn more about our future world within the Metaverse.
According to LuxuryLaunches, a virtual patch of land recently sold for a whopping $2.4 million. Shortly after, a sale was completed on a $650,000 Metaflower Super Mega Yacht created by Metaverse developer Republic Realm.
Lucky (and wealthy) Snoop Dogg fans just used their NFT knowledge and wealth to purchase “land” near the “Gin and Juice” emcee’s virtual property with one going for nearly 71,000 SAND (about $450,000), Benzinga reports.

“The Snoopverse sale of Sandbox land plots near Snoop Dogg’s virtual estate with other two selling for about 55,000 SAND ($338,000) and 67,000 Sand ($410,000.),” the outlet shared.
The three parcels of digital land allow the users to occupy space directly near Snoop Dogg’s mansion in the Ethereum-based metaverse platform The Sandbox.
The current virtual land within The Sandbox is being sold as NFTs and can be traded like the various NFTs on platforms that include OpenSea.
