It comes as the hip hop icon went to Twitter to admit in a straightforward manner, saying that he is the person running the popular Twitter account that primarily discusses NFTs and cryptos in general, as per The Verge.
On top of that, CozomoMedici also rose to fame as the account impressively owns a hundred crypto tokens, which costs a hefty worth of millions of dollars, his OpenSea account showed.
To be precise, the collection has already ballooned to a whopping 159 pieces, even as the account only joined the NFT marketplace platform last August.
The news outlet further suggested that the username is likely to be based on the name of a popular banker in Italy from the Renaissance era.

Before the revelation, Medici even ran a poll that made its followers guess the person behind the Twitter account. However, for some unknown reason, Snoop Dogg was not part of the choices.
