    Coldplay Fans React To Guy Berryman's "Tone Deaf" Purchase Of NFT

    Unanimous disappointment from fans as Coldplay bassist and Applied Art Forms creative director, Guy Berryman, shows off his newly acquired 'Bored Yacht Club' NFT on Twitter.

    As NFT's have gained popularity, many have expressed their distaste towards them. However, it hasn't stopped celebrities from investing in these environmentally unfriendly 'Non-fungible tokens'.

    Guy Berryman is among the latest in a slew of celebs that have received backlash for their purchase and Coldplay fans are not holding back.

    While many are joking about being able to "right click and save" the NFT, others aren't as forgiving of Berryman's decision to dabble in the Ethereum blockchain.


    Long-time Coldplay collaborator Brian Eno has expressed his scepticism towards cryptocurrency - NFT's in particular.

    “NFTs seem to me just a way for artists to get a little piece of the action from global capitalism, our own cute little version of financialization,”  Eno tells 'Crypto Syllabus' “How sweet — now artists can become little capitalist assholes as well.”

    According to carbon.fyi, it is estimated that Guy is responsible for approximately 354 kilograms of CO₂ emissions throughout his foray into NFT's. Berryman's latest purchase is estimated to have cost upwards of $200,000, leading fans to discover previous purchases through his profile on OpenSea.

    Coldplay are currently gearing up for a massive world tour to accompany their ninth studio album 'Music of The Spheres'. With the announcement of the tour, the band pledged to make it as environmentally friendly as possible.

    "We're very conscious that the planet is facing a climate crisis. So we've spent the past two years consulting with environmental experts to make this tour as sustainable as possible" Coldplay said in a tweet.

    Guy's unnecessary carbon contributions not only encourage others to do the same but also completely goes against the band's mantra towards climate change.
