Amusement parks, physical and online service shops, toys, games, athletic equipment, campaign buttons, apparel, luggage, home items, and cosmetics are among the products that can be used.
The rapper’s decision to launch NFTs represents a shift in his anti-NFT views.
Ye has stated to his 10.5 million Instagram followers that he will not participate in NFTs (at that time, at least).
Kanye said, “Do not ask me to do a fucking NFT,” adding, “Ask me later.”
“FOR NOW I’M NOT ON THAT WAVE I MAKE MUSIC AND PRODUCTS IN THE REAL WORLD,” the rapper said in the caption of the picture.
This might explain why parks, entertainment products, and stores have submitted applications.
West has already stated his desire to create his own amusement park.
“I want to work on cities, I want to work on amusement parks, I want to change entertainment experiences,” he apparently stated after the Grammys.
“It’s like if McQueen or Tarsem [Singh] were to engage with Cirque du Soleil or Walt Disney in terms of entertainment value.”
