The NFT fever continues to grip the stars. Even the American rapper Kanye West, who recently criticized this market, decided to issue his own non-fungible cryptocurrency tokens. The musician has registered several trademarks based on his YEEZUS brand, under which he plans to launch many products, including NFT.
In total, he has filed 17 intellectual property applications under the YEEZUS brand. The documents indicate that Kanye intends to launch amusement parks, toys for children and adults, and NFTs under the YEEZUS brand.
Indeed, the rapper has not always been enthusiastic about this new market, in February 2021 he even published a scathing post on the subject, saying that he was focused on creating real products in the real world, and asked his fans "not to talk to him about these fucking NFT. But he seems to have changed his mind today.
It is known that the most famous NFT fans are Paris Hilton and Johnny Depp. They have been creating their digital works of art for a long time and successfully earn money on it. In April, football player David Beckham filed three trademark applications related to the Metaverse and the NFT. And in March, three trademark applications were filed by Notorious B.I.G., LLC, which manages the intellectual property of the late American rapper Biggie Smalls, founder of the rap group Junior M.A.F.I.A. NFTs will also be issued under his name.
