Mark Cuban, Kevin Durant, Steve Aoki among top crypto-invested celebrities

Cryptorush Casino data reveals that celebrities Mark Cuban, Kevin Durant, Baron Davis, and Steve Aoki hold crypto in their investment portfolios.

Mark Cuban

Cuban, worth $5.4 billion, takes a subtle stance on crypto. His investments total a little over $6 million, and he has disclosed amounts into OpenSea and Yuga Labs. Although Cuban invests in cryptocurrency, he describes it as a hail mary.

During a discussion in January on X, the Shark Tank co-host shared that his crypto holdings consist of Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Polygon (MATIC), and Injective (INJ). He noted that his NBA team, the Dallas Mavericks, accepts Dogecoin (DOGE) for payments.

Cuban also expressed mixed feelings about cryptocurrency, stating that he dislikes its speculative aspect but loves it when it has utility.

Kevin Durant

NBA veteran Kevin Durant has a net worth of $90 million and, in 2017, established Thirty Five Ventures (35V), together with long-term manager and friend Rich Kleiman.

35V has invested over $80 million into crypto-based companies, $75 million of which was invested into a company called Alt.

35V’s significant investment included Coinbase, which became a public entity in April 2021 with a valuation of $86 billion after its initial trading day. According to CNBC, the crypto exchange’s stock price is just under its IPO of $254 per share, currently at $222.

Baron Davis

Baron Davis, a former NBA star with a net worth of $60 million, has invested over $45 million in Wilder World and Swan Bitcoin. Davis then transitioned to entrepreneurship, engaging communities with projects like The Black Santa Company, which promotes diverse storytelling through events, media, and NFTs.

Davis also plans to launch SLiC, a new Web3 platform that includes a decentralized photo storage and licensing system, to support creators by connecting them with fans.

Steve Aoki

Steve Aoki, a famous DJ in the music industry, is the most hands-on of the celebrities. Aoki has been heavily invested in the world of NFTs since 2021 when he bought his Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT for 200 ETH, equivalent to $760,000. Many NFT collections, like Doodles, have commemorated Aoki’s early investments in the project by gifting him his curated NFT.

According to CryptoRank, the DJ has invested in companies such as Yuga Labs, Magna, and Bubble House, bringing his total investment to over $30 million.
