How do you keep some of the best memories of your life ‘livin’, through images? How do you keep them ‘alive forever’ – through NFTs perhaps!? Well, this precisely is the notion behind famous YouTuber, Boxer, Social media personality, Logan Paul’s NFT Collection, ‘99 Originals’!
Logan Paul’s ‘99 Originals’ is the latest venture from the star after he gained huge profits ($535k) with the sale of his World of Women NFT. Not just this, he recently announced turning his most prized possession, the world’s most expensive Pokemon card, into an NFT! It was only a matter of time that he gave a personal creative touch to the NFT Space.
“I still wanted to create something that was timeless, something that reflected who I was behind the camera.”
What is ‘99 Originals’?
‘99 Originals’ is a collection of 99 Original, 1/1 unaltered Polaroids NFT taken over the span of 99 consecutive ‘transformative’ days by Logan Paul. At least one Original NFT is up for auction every day on originals.com.
Logan Paul, who is a self-confessed NFT enthusiast, first shared a glimpse of the NFT collection depicting ‘clicked excerpts’ from his life in April. The very first of the 99 Originals featured the ‘Legend of the NFT Space’ itself- ‘Beeple’ and was sold for a whopping 25 ETH. The proceedings from this sale were donated to the Ukraine war relief effort.
Logan Paul’s polaroid NFTs are a souvenir of moments and memories and some, a reminder of his transformative life. The different NFTs are accompanied with different utilities and perks.

How did 99 Originals Come into being?
Logan Paul’s love for NFT space is a self-admitted one!! He is a proud owner of as many as 139 NFTs from over 16 collections.
However, the thought of dropping his own NFT occurred when on August 21, 2021, he was pushed into a creative maelstrom that weaved together every piece of his life ‘in the past, present, and future’.
Logan Paul motivated himself to strive beyond his mental and physical limits as he went on a life-changing trekking of 84,029 miles around the globe with his Polaroid camera, ‘OneStep+’.
It was during this tedious yet transitioning journey that he broke bones while experiencing miracles. His journey was no less than a ‘quixotic drama’ with family issues, substance addiction, co-travelling with the world’s wealthiest and several romantic rendezvous.
He lived dangerously in the moment and concluded with 99 of the most significant memories of his life captured on a perceivable film.
This is how 99 Originals was born!!
