The average cost is now fluctuating between a measly one to three per cent.

The scheme was initially supported by the likes of Roma star and ex-Blue Tammy Abraham and Terry’s old team-mate Ashley Cole.

Terry set up his Twitter account in November 2021 in an apparent attempt to promote his online tokens.

The Blues icon has been advertising the NFTs he owns, featuring cartoons of baby monkeys, on his Twitter page.

In one NFT owned by the ex-England captain, a blue monkey – wearing a captain’s armband as Terry did 580 times for Chelsea – is surrounded by several trophies.

But his old club were reportedly investigating after Terry and Cole used the club’s badge in tokens shared online.
