Since its early days, the concept of NFT projects like Bored Ape Yacht Club, CryptoPunks and many more have been heavily criticized by the general public, with many still skeptical about the actual uses of NFTs or whether they deserve all the hype and popularity they do.
Eminem and Snoop Dogg’s recent performance however, may have been able to showcase the public that big artists such as themselves have high views and optimism about NFTs and NFT collections like BAYC. In turn, this may push for the public to become more acknolwedging of both the existence and the potential of NFTs.
