Who is Cozomo de’ Medici?
Cozomo de’ Medici is considered to be a trendsetter and NFT collector of great taste. He entered the NFT space in August of 2021, announcing his twitter and soon after revealing his identity as Snoop Dogg.
In a short two months, Cozomo quickly rose to the status of a whale and has curated one of the most impressive NFT collections to date. With his significant support for NFT artists (and acquiring pieces in the seven figures), Cozomo is seen as a patron of NFT arts. His thought leadership takes the form of long-form commentary on Twitter, where he shares his rationale on his collection.
According to DappRadar’s portfolio estimate tool, his current collection is worth more than $12 million.
What’s in Cozomo de’ Medici’s vault?
Besides TRLab NFTs like Exploding the Self and Your Daytime Fireworks, he is also a collector of several blue-chip NFTs:

- 4 Moonbirds NFTs
- 12 Tom Sachs Rocket Factory NFTs

Not only does Cozomo collect blue-chip art, but he also supports non-NFT native, digital artists. For example, he is a huge supporter of DeeKay Kwon ( aka: @deekaymotion). On October 21, 2021, Cozomo spent 225 ETH on acquiring Deekay’s Destiny.
