According to media reports, Shawn held regular meetings and worked hard along with his team for almost half a year to plan and execute the launch of his NFTs. Juggling work and NFTs, Shawn is also a doting father who insists on spending quality time with his family.
Other NFT records
This is not the first time that the Monster Run actor has made headlines with his NFT collections. In 2021, he raised over HKD 121.6 million (SGD 21.1million) by selling 14 NFTs through an online auction. Among them was a Cryptopunk NFT, which earned him a whopping HKD 33.85 million (SGD 5.9 million).
For the uninitiated, a Cryptopunk series comprises 10,000 unique 24×24, eight-bit-style pixel art avatars and is considered to be one of the first major NFT projects. It was launched in 2017 and since its inception, each of its NFT is valued in millions.

Yue received huge support from his celebrity friends after launching his NFTs. Noted names like Jay Chou, JJ Lin, Stephen Fung, Kai Ko and Eric Chou have talked about ZombieClub on their respective social media platforms.
