Since early 2021, NFTs have grown in leaps and bounds, with a range of industries adopting these digital assets. And one of the major reasons for the widespread reach of NFTs is celebrity endorsements. While some A-listers have released their own NFTs, others have been eagerly collecting some of the hottest NFTs in the market. From musicians to comedians and athletes, a slew of celebrities has invested hundreds of millions of dollars into their NFT portfolios. So, what does the top celebrity NFT portfolio look like today?
Last month, CMC Markets ranked the celebrities with the most expensive NFT portfolios in the world. Based on the data from Rarible and DappRadar, CMC ranked the celebrities by the value of their most recent sale. Notably, 60% of the celebrities on the list are from the music industry. 
Unsurprisingly, Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs are the most popular among the A-listers. Indeed, as the top-grossing blue-chip collection, Bored Apes have often been the first choice of high net-worth individuals as they embark on their NFT journey.
Let’s take a closer look at the top 10 celebrity NFT portfolios based on the data from June 2022:
