At press time, ETH traded 6.01% lower at $2,950.11, which makes the digital artwork worth $3.8 million.
The artist purchased the NFT using the alias “Cozomo de Medici.” He later tweeted using the same nom-de-guerre.
Welcome “Some Asshole” to the Medici villa. Let’s hope he’s polite at Nonna’s Sunday dinner 🙂
Honored to acquire @XCOPYART‘s 1st published character piece & #7 mint on @SuperRare.
Grazie to maestro @2Yeahyeah for a smooth transaction & @Anonymoux2311 for sage guidance ~CdM https://t.co/lDFgHLqVrk

In April, the rap legend also put on sale several of his own NFTs as a collection titled “A Journey with the Dogg.”
At the time, Snoop Dogg said he alongside Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk was going to smoke one of the coins “on the moon.”
His comments came after Musk said he would be putting Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) on the moon.
