NFT collector spends $450,000 to become Snoop Dogg’s virtual neighbour

Snoop Dogg has created his own interactive world, and one NFT collector has paid $450,000 to be his virtual neighbour.

The Sandbox are powering Snoop’s parallel planet, ‘Snoopverse’. They are an Ethereum-based platform that creates virtual spaces that can be monetised and used for gaming or simply hanging out.

Additionally, collectors who join Snoop’s space can live like him, albeit in a pixelated sense, and also build their own plots on the land, which they can then monetise from visiting residents.

Another ‘positive’ of being Snoop’s neighbour is being invited to parties at his California mansion. However, of course, not the one he lives in, but an online replica.

A couple of months ago, Snoop revealed that he’d been secretly running the Twitter account, Cozomo de’ Medici, which was a big fish within the NFT community before his reveal.

“Dear frens,” the first tweet read on Cozomo’s page. “Since I announced my dox, events have transpired most would not believe, nor understand.

“What I can share is I’ve received an outpouring of kindness here on Twitter. And many say they prefer to know me as Cozomo, and no one else! So here is what I’ve decided to do: Shortly, as promised, I will dox from my personal account. As my fame is considerable, the tweet will no doubt be discovered.

He continued, “Those who are curious to my identity will soon know it. Those who do not care, or simply prefer not to know the source of my vast fame and fortune, may simply not research. I will keep this account focused on NFTs and not mention this again here.”
