Former Disney Star Lindsay Lohan Joins NFT Mania With Exclusive Collectibles on Tron Network
NFTs To Change The Narrative For Creatives
The actress and singer plans to launch her own NFTs through a Tron- based auction marketplace. According to the announcement, the exclusive 1 of 1 NFT collectible would be available on Justin Sun's blockchain project. Her NFT proposal would find itself on the newly launched TRC-721 protocol by Tron. The digital collectible would be available for bidding on March 20.
In anticipation of the NFT sales, Lohan would host a Clubhouse chat session with Justin Sun, founder and CEO of Tron blockchain, and BitTorrent and T-Mobile CEO John Legere.
NFTs have become immensely popular in the last couple of months.
With the digital collectibles niche becoming something of a fad, many artists, celebrities, athletes, musicians, companies, and even entertainment-focused businesses are looking to tap into the NFT market. This comes as popular digital artists Beeple posted record sales of his digital artwork earlier this month.

Another Publicity Stunt by Sun?
In a statement made soon after Lindsay Lohan announced her Clubhouse show, Sun described her as a “true icon” who was driven by blockchain and crypto's transformative potential.
Sun has always courted the public’s attention to drive visibility for his blockchain project. Earlier this month, he tried buying Jack Dorsey’s first-published tweet of March 2006. He lost the bid to Oracle CEO Sina Estavi, who paid a reported $2.5 million for the tweet.
In another instance, he came close to snatching up Beeple’s Everyday: The First 5000 Days artwork, which went for almost $70 million. He lost the bidding session hosted by UK auction house Christie's by $250k.
