Taiwan Icon Jay Chou’s PhantaBear NFT Dethrones Bored Ape Yacht Club

A new non-fungible token (NFT) collection backed by Taiwanese superstar Jay Chou has dethroned Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) on the OpenSea NFT marketplace in trading volume, reflecting the growing interest in celebrity-endorsed digital collectibles.

The PhantaBear NFT series, co-created by Jay Chou’s hipster brand PHANTACi, sold out its 10,000 algorithmically-created NFTs on January 1 within 40 minutes on its debut at 0.26 ETH (about $1,000 at the time) each, according to a company statement. 

Over the past week, the NFTs’ trading volume reached over 17,194.22 ETH ($53.6 million), a 462+% jump from the week before, according to OpenSea data. Jay Chou shared a screenshot of PhantaBear’s OpenSea ranking and said:

“When I said I am all about being no. 1, I wasn’t kidding!” 

In related news, NFTs have entered the world of US politics recently as Congressional candidates offer NFTs to help finance their campaigns in the mid-term elections. Democrat Shrina Kurani, who is running for a House seat in California, and Republican Blake Masters, who is vying for Senate in Arizona, have offered NFTs as incentives for donors. 

Kurani, who claimed to be the first to offer NFTs, said she is doing so to seek support from the younger generation the way former President Trump used MAGA to raise millions in funds. 

Ethereum Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

Looking at the Ethereum price chart, we can see that ETH has registered a fairly significant recovery during the current session. If the current sentiment persists, we could see ETH push to $3150.
