Artist The Weeknd purchased 47 FVCKRENDER NFTs worth $70,000. The singer opted for the artworks from FVCK_CRYSTAL collection, which has generated a total of $36 million by the time of writing.
The collection features 4,169 precious stones, each computer generated and optimized for utility. For instance, the NFTs grant holders access to events, raffles, and exclusive areas of the LVCIDIA, a gaming platform developed by FVCKRENDER. The current floor price of the collection is 0.44 ETH (approximately $836 at the time of writing), 11.6K ETH was traded.
Interestingly, Twitter users initially believed that The Weeknd was a Twitter user @LilMoonMambo, an investor that owns the “theweeknd.eth” ENS domain name. While that’s clearly not true, the actual buyer of the FVCKRENDER NFTs is the singer himself.
FVCKRENDER, real name Frederic Duquette, is a Vancouver-based artist who specialized in futuristic digital art. His artworks were featured in events at Sotheby’s and Christie’s auction houses. Among the artist’s partners and clients are Spotfiy, Ledger, TIME Magazine, Dior, Swarovski, streetwear brand Supreme, and The Hundreds.
Duquette has recently partnered with a fragrance brand D.S. & Durga, to develop a limited-edition collection of 5,555 NFTs. Holders get access to a bunch of perks, including a one-time claim of exclusive physical pocket-sized fragrances. It’s worth noting that 3,333 NFTs from the collection were reserved for FVCK_CRYSTALS holders. Maybe, The Weeknd just wanted to become the owner of the unique fragrances.
