Cozomo de’ Medici and the first NFT of Fidenza most expensive in history
It was October 2021, when Cozomo de’ Medici, billionaire NFT collector who turned out to be Snoop Dogg himself, announced that he had bought Fidenza’s work, the first-ever declared most expensive in the history of the industry.
Dogg reportedly bought a large portion of the work for 2500 ETH, the equivalent of 8.5 million dollars at the time.
The month before, the rapper had also revealed that he was Cozomo de’ Medici and had opened an account on OpenSea to buy NFT for $17 million as well.
At the time, Dogg had also already begun his collaboration with The Sandbox to recreate his home in the metaverse, a project for the 10,000 Doggies NFT collection.
