The Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) is an exclusive community for holders of monkey and mutant NFT collections on the Ethereum blockchain. Commonly referred to as the Bored Apes, only 10,000 generative works of art will ever exist.
What Happened: Bored Ape #8166 just sold for 125.00 ETH ETH/USD ($432.698 USD). The value of bored monkeys is usually determined by the monkey’s traits, with the laser eyes, crown, and golden coat features being the most coveted.
Here is a list of the traits and how many others have the same trait:Fur: Cheetah (406) Background: Purple (1291) Eyes: X Eyes (243) Hat: Bowler (262) Mouth: Bored Unshaven (1551) Clothes: Prison Jumpsuit (235)
Why it matters: Bored Apes are the ultimate culture store for NFT collectors. The NFT collection has taken on a huge impact in 2021, with an ever-growing list of top celebrities making monkeys their profile pictures on Twitter. With the recent explosion in popularity around the Metaverse, rare blockchain-based avatars are all the rage for those looking to flex online.
Being a member of the Bored Ape Yacht Club isn’t all about online flexing. Yuga Labs, the creators of the Bored Apes, often throw exclusive parties with free private performances from members of the club such as Lil Baby. Other notable celebrities at the club include Post Malone, Stephen Curry, Dez Bryant and Jimmy Kimmel.
Yuga Labs also created another NFT collection known as the Mutant Apes, which also offers membership to the elusive club. There are a total of 20,000 mutated monkeys and the price floor is historically lower than that of the bored monkeys.
