The richest person on the planet, Bernard Arnault, has admitted to owning an NFT collection, despite previously expressing a “tepid” attitude regarding the digital tokens. Therefore, beyond the French business magnet’s high-end brands, superyacht, and a private island lies a collection of NFTs tucked safely into his chunky wallet.
His sons’ interests in blockchain-based assets may have swayed him into Web3. Alexandre Arnault owns a jewel-laden CryptoPunk Tiffany Pendant. While, Frédéric Arnault — who is now Tag Heuer’s CEO — also demonstrated his passion for cutting-edge technology by unveiling an innovative feature that facilitates NFTs on the luxury watch brand.

Arnault Senior remains tight-lipped regarding his digital collectibles. However, Ian Rogers, an ex-employee and the CEO of Ledger, spilled the beans about the billionaire’s collectibles on a recent podcast. Rogers confirmed that Arnault showed him a sneak peek at his OpenSea page.
Meet Bernard Arnault
With a net worth exceeding $200 billion, Arnault serves as both the CEO and chairman of the luxury goods corporation (LVMH). Among the brands he owns are Tiffany, Louis Vuitton and Tag Heuer.
Following the success of his fashion empire, Arnault has acquired a lavish superyacht dubbed Symphony. This remarkable vessel is one of the world’s largest and most opulent superyachts, measuring more than 100 meters long and boasting state-of-the-art amenities such as a cinema, swimming pool, spa, and even a helipad. As such, Symphony is a true testament to Arnault’s accomplishments.
Nevertheless, Arnault’s prosperity does not stop there — he also has a private island in the Bahamas. The island, situated in the Abaco Islands, spans over 133 acres. It is best known for its turquoise waters, pristine beaches and natural beauty.
As the owner of some of the world’s most significant luxury brands, products and property, Arnault is, without a doubt, one of the most privileged people in the world. One cannot help but feel curious about which NFTs he possesses.
