British singer-songwriter Boy George has recently announced that he is a fan of crypto, NFT world and metaverse. In addition, the Culture Club leader performed his initial metaverse concert in the current week, launching his initial NFT project, CryptoQueenz.
Boy George is the recent star to perform at the virtual Vegas City Flamingos Club; that presented as a taster of what fans can expect from the pop symbol of the 80s. Besides, he stated that he had spent months generating an NFT series based on his Scarman designs. The drop occurred on March 1 on OpenSea. The current floor price of the series is 0.049 ETH.
His NFT drop has a nonprofit element. This is because a percentage of each sale goes to the Elton John AIDS Foundation, and Shelter Charities.
“In your opinion, I am just doing what I have always done, and that is just following the next idea, whether it is via music, fashion, virtual art, and so on. Boy George said in an interview with Yahoo Finance.
He also stated that the NFT world excited him because “there is a sense of ‘Wild West’ in it right now.” In addition, he likened the present pleasure about the metaverse to the early days of the Internet. He also recalled a conversation with David Bowie in the 1990s about the future of the Internet.
In addition to releasing the series, Boy George auctioned off an extremely rare CryptoQueenz NFT to help the International Committee of the Red Cross, Médecins Sans Frontières, and Children’s Voice following the Russia-Ukraine crisis. This followed the launch of UkraineDAO by Nadezhda Tolokonnikova of Pussy Riot.
