The NFT community has mixed feeling when Kevin Rose, founder of the PROOF Collective and MoonBird brought up “Celebrity Bucket” as in the form of gifting to certain individuals.The reason is to bring aboard celebrities who are interested in collaborating in the project but the celebrities are able to sell their MoonBird NFT.
