YouTube Celebrity Logan Paul Jumps On NFT Bandwagon

Logan Paul, the YouTube celebrity, has jumped on the nonfungible token (NFT) bandwagon as part of his latest self-promotion.

It has been reported by decentralized e-commerce platform Bondly that it will create a limited edition of 44 NFTs featuring a “holographic” image of Paul in his boxing gear mocked up as a Pokemon card.

However, the NFTs will be distributed to auction winners in Paul’s upcoming Pokemon Box Break.

The report said that Paul recently acquired six unopened boxes of first edition Pokemon cards from over twenty years ago, dropping a cool $2 million on the cards in the process. Each box contains 36 packs of cards, and Paul is auctioning the packs from one of the boxes between February 4 and February 11 through the Goldin Auctions sports collectibles platform.

According to the report, Paul will unbox and open the packs on behalf of the auction winners in a live stream on February 27 (Pokemon Day) to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the game’s launch. As a special bonus, each pack winner will also receive one of the limited edition NFTs featuring Paul as a Pokemon. The card describes Poke-Paul as a “legendary human,” who is “tall and thick,” and one of the card’s special attacks is a dynamic punch leaving opponents “confused.”

Poke-fans who win 1st edition #Pokemon packs in the @LoganPaul Box Break will also get a 1 of 44 #NFT digital collectible. A snip at just $10,000. — Cointelegraph (@Cointelegraph) February 5, 2021

Bondly will be issuing a whole line of Logan Paul NFTs “for those who are unable to make a bid in the auction.” These will be sold individually through a custom Logan Paul store on the platform.

Paul has also successfully transitioned into the boxing world although initially gaining recognition through his video content.

Thus, he was scheduled to fight Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition match on February 20, although the match was indefinitely postponed last week.
