Neymar NFT explained

The Paris Saint-Germain forward has purchased two new NFTs to his collection – both from the same content creator.

This craze is Bored Ape Yacht Club – a series of 10,000 NFTs of a bored ape.

Neymar has bought two of them – with one NFT being his Twitter display profile picture as of 2pm GMT on Friday afternoon.

This is Bored Ape 6633.

It shows the ape in a tuxedo, wearing a hat, looking rather bored of the whole thing.

This one features the ape in a fluorescent t-shirt with red laser eyes.

The Bored Ape 5269 NFT that Neymar owns is currently the most expensive in the collection of 10,000.
