About Bored Ape Yacht Club

The most successful avatar project since CryptoPunks, Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC), is a collection of 10,000 uniquely generated bored apes that are stored on the Ethereum blockchain. Launched on April 23, Bored Ape Yacht Club had a mint price of 0.08 ETH and the collection sold out on April 30. 

Owning a Bored Ape Yacht Club grants holders exclusive access to the Yacht Club, which provides a variety of member-only benefits. First, holders were granted access to THE BATHROOM, a collaborative graffiti board where members can add a pixel every 15 minutes. 

Since that time all BAYC holders were able to mint one companion dog at no cost, from the Bored Ape Kennel Club (BAKC), for each Bored Ape they held. 

In mid-August, the BAYC fixed the Arcade Machine, the final bullet from the team’s original roadmap. With the Arcade Machine fixed, Bored Ape holders received one of two separate Mutant serums (M1 or M2), which could be used on their ape. Using the Ape on their serum produce a separate NFT, from the Mutant Ape Yacht Club, that held the mutated version of their Ape and the respective traits. 

In late September 2021, the team behind Bored Ape Yacht Club announced the BAYC Roadmap 2.0, which hints at a game, real-life meetups, a DAO, and more. 

In October 2021, BAYC announced the coming of a utility token slated for Q1 of 2022. 

On Jan. 20, 2022, BAYC launched its mobile game, Apes vs Mutants, on the iOS Apple App Store and Google Play. 

In February 2022, Yuga Labs raised over $200 million from Andreessen Horowitz and others. 

In March 2022, Yuga Labs launched ApeCoin ($APE) and opened the 90-day claim period for holders of Bored Ape Yacht Club and Mutant Ape Yacht Club NFTs.

On Mar. 18, 2022, Yuga Labs released a video featuring Bored Ape Yacht Club, Cool Cats, CrypToadz, World of Women, and Nouns NFTs. The note at the end of the video read: "See you on the Otherside in April. Powered by @apecoin."

On Mar. 28, 2022, Bored Ape Yacht Club dropped its official merchandise collection with a limited supply to holders only.

On the final day of ApeFest attendees of the event were blessed with the privilege to see fellow Bored Ape Yacht Club members Snoop Dogg and Eminem perform live.

The two artists released a music video featuring their Apes as well as collaborated with Yuga Labs to make a merchandise drop.

This is the last chance for users to purchase the merchandise as the team issued a last call in a recent tweet where they state the drop will close tonight at 7:00 pm ET.

BAYC Surpasses Moonrunners Volume, Yuga Dominates Top 5

Earlier today, the X2Y2 NFT marketplace was issued a complaint about trademark infringement regarding its RR/BAYC collection.

"Things [are] escalating rather rapidly in [the] Yuga [and] RR/BAYC fued, as server providers are now threatening to take [the] X2Y2 site down," the marketplace tweeted. "In an effort to not disrupt service for the rest of our users we will be marking the following six collections as 'Unavailable for Legal Reasons.'"

Since then, the creator of RR/BAYC Ryder Ripps agreed to change the collection's logo and name. The logo is currently all black and the new collection name is Black Square.

Prior to the change, the logo looked nearly identical to the BAYC logo, but read: "This logo is based on the SS Totenkopf," an elite division of the Waffen-SS of Nazi Germany during World War II.

Bored Ape Yacht Club's founders have denied this claim and filed a lawsuit in response.

BAYC Copycat Project Agrees to Change Logo and Name on X2Y2 Marketplace

Bored Ape Yacht Club has traded nearly 1,000 ETH today with an average sale price of more than 100 ETH per NFT, the first time this has happened since last Monday, according to data from OpenSea.

The uptick in the project's total volume traded comes after rap legends Snoop Dogg and Eminem revealed their most recent music video, which features Snoop's Dr. Bombay (BAYC #6723) and Eminem's Bored Ape (BAYC #9055), at ApeFest during NFT NYC. 

The song featured in the music video, "From The D 2 The LBC," is the first collaboration between Eminem and Snoop in years (not including their joint performance at SuperBowl LVI).

The video, which was posted to Eminem's official YouTube account with more than 50 million subscribers, has more than 5 million views already and is already trending #7 on YouTube in the music category.

In comparison, his hit single with Juice WRLD, "Godzilla," has 52 million views in two years.
