Following a series of tweets indicating his interest in NFTs and prospective cooperation with both Solana and Ethereum-based NFT projects, Belfort’s interest in the field appears to have begun in October.

Since then, Belfort has increased his involvement in the NFT area and has committed to launching his own NFT project – a collection of artwork “inspired by The Wolf of Wall Street movie and my life,” according to Belfort.

Belfort has previously indicated that cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, which he aims to ‘HODL’ till at least $100K, are “the great equaliser” and that he owns them.

His debut into the NFT market comes at a time when NFT prices are falling for the majority of projects as Ethereum is striving to establish a new all-time high

CryptoPunks and other ‘blue-chip’ ventures like Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) have rebounded nicely despite the slump.

CryptoPunks are collectible crypto art pieces that use NFTs to represent them on the Ethereum blockchain. Each of the 10,000 small 8-bit punks has its own individuality. They are one-of-a-kind digital pieces of art made by an algorithm with a resolution of 2424 pixels. There are a limited number of CryptoPunks available.
