Planned Maintenance for Dookey Dash Today
Julian Son

Dookey Dash will undergo approximately one hour of planned maintenance starting around 3:30 p.m. ET, according to a tweet from Bored Ape Yacht Club

Why It Matters

During the maintenance period, users will not be able to utilize the popular Yuga Labs' game and ApeCoin boosts purchased after the aforementioned tweet are not subject to refunds. 

🧮 By The Numbers

Sewer Passes remain a top volume collection on OpenSea over the last 24 hours, with the Tier 1 (least rare) passes trading at 2.47 ETH.

Gordon Goner Takes Leave of Absence from Yuga Labs
Bill Monighetti

In a Twitter thread today, Yuga Labs co-founder Gordon Goner (Wylie Aranow) announced he has been diagnosed with congestive heart failure and will be taking a leave of absence from Yuga Labs to focus on his health.

🤔 What It Means

  • Wylie will stay on with Yuga as a board member and strategic advisor while he recovers.
  • In the interim, Yuga's leadership team will be led by Garga (Greg Solano) and Daniel Alegre.

Lucky Trader's best wishes are with Wylie and the whole team wishes him a speedy recovery.

User Finds Dookey Dash Exploit
Julian Son

Software engineer Cygaar found an exploit in Dookey Dash that allowed the user to run through obstacles, according to a video shared on Twitter.

🧐 Wait, What?

The video showcased shows the user maneuvering through every obstacle type (not around them) while still registering a valid score. Cygaar did not run up the score for demonstration purposes but was able to motor right through the pesky fans and pipes flowing through the sewer setting.

According to Cygaar, it took them approximately two days to find the exploit, and another three to put together a well-functioning proof of concept.

🔜 What’s Next?

Cygaar already shared it with staff security engineer @samwcyo and the rest of the Yuga security team in the interest of protecting game integrity.

This is a perfect example of skilled members of the community working in a collaborative fashion towards a common solution (in this case, fairness for all Dookey Dash players)

Sewer Pass Claim to Open in An Hour
Bill Monighetti

The previously delayed claim for Sewer Passes will begin "around 10:30 AM PST" today, the official BAYC account tweeted this afternoon.

The Fine Print: All Bored Ape and Mutant Ape collectors worldwide will have at least 24 hours to claim their passes.

Why It Matters: Previously scheduled to open yesterday, the Sewer Pass claim was delayed for "unexpected bumps" the team ran into. Yuga Labs is ready to make another attempt at opening the claim today.


Alright Apes, Sewer Pass claim will begin around 10:30 AM PST today. Thanks for being patient with us. We will tweet here, post a discord announcement, and update the blog when claim goes live.https://twitter.com/BoredApeYC/

Tyler Warner's NFT Market Summary

The BAYC Sewer Passes are set to mint today after a delay, and if the price action on the Yuga NFTs is an early indicator, things are looking grim.

What's happening with the Sewer Passes?

As a quick reminder, the Sewer Passes are the free NFTs to claim for the BAYC and MAYC holders to play Dookey Dash over the next 3 weeks. Dookey Dash is an interactive mint, and based on the results, players will unlock higher rarity NFTs that will be "power sources."

The mint was planned for last night but delayed at the last minute, now happening today with the Dookey Dash game starting tomorrow.

Well the Yuga NFT market did not like the delay. BAYC fell to 68.8 ETH (-2%), MAYC down to 14.2 ETH (-6%), and BAKC to 7 ETH (-12%).

A dip was expected after the mint, but it was strange to see it happen before. Rumors were circulating that it was tied to some leverage trading gone wrong, which is very possible.

Now those projecting 3-5 ETH floors on the Sewer Passes will likely be revising those estimates down.

What else is moving?

The NFT market saw just over 20,000 ETH in trading volume for the second day in a row, and there were some winners on the day.

Beanz jumped over 10 percent to a 1.69 ETH floor as anticipation grows for a big announcement on Jan 23.

Proof Grails III Mint Passes jumped 14 percent on the first day of minting, with some of the Grails already minting out and community speculation of who the mystery artists could be running high.

And The Memes by 6529 just continue to surge, with the Naka card reaching a 32 ETH floor and the Sgt Pepe card now at 8.2 ETH after a big night of buys.

Recent new joiners cooled off a bit, with Checks down 25 percent to 0.28 ETH, a KID called Beast at 0.51 ETH, and the latest micro-cap pumper in Honk! at 0.07 ETH.

Around Web3

Some headlines that caught my eye:

NFT Total Volume

  • Mutant Ape Yacht Club (2,129 ETH, 14.5 ETH Floor)
  • Bored Ape Kennel Club (1,406 ETH, 7.06 ETH)
  • Bored Ape Yacht Club (1,194 ETH, 68.8 ETH)
  • Terraforms by Mathcastles (788 ETH, 2.97 ETH)
  • Azuki (600 ETH, 14.5 ETH)

NFT Floor Price Increase

  • YuGiYn (74%, 0.28 ETH Floor)
  • Pingers (70%, 2.65 ETH)
  • Grails III (14%, 2.72 ETH)
  • Beanz (11%, 1.69 ETH)
  • Creepz (15%, 1.6 ETH)

Upcoming NFT Mints and Reveals

Today is a big day for art and Memes, with another 6529 drop this morning and the first Curated of the year from Art Blocks.

"The Harvest" by Kristian Stoveland has held wide community acclaim for weeks since its announcement and early previews, and expect some major demand on the mint today. Recent mints have gone high, but Art Blocks tailwinds are cooling off enough to perhaps balance out that recent trend, allowing a decent mint price (anything sub-2 ETH is good IMO).

And of course, the wild card is the Sewer Passes. Expect thousands of ETH of trading volume once those release.

  • Memes by 6529 (11:00 a.m. ET)
  • Art Blocks Curated: The Harvest (1:00 p.m. ET)
  • Dookey Dash: Sewer Passes (TBD)

Sewer Pass Claim, Dookey Dash Delayed
Julian Son

The claim for the sewer pass will occur "around end of day PST", the official BAYC account tweeted. The Sewers will also now instead open Thursday, Jan. 19. 

The Fine Print: All Bored Ape and Mutant Ape holders worldwide will have at least 24 hours to claim their passes.


We will tweet a 1-hour heads up before Dookey Dash goes live, to make sure everyone has their scuba gear ready to go. Dookey Dash and Sewer Pass claims will still close on 2/8 as planned. Questions about how claim works? Reach out to our official Discord.@BoredApeYC

Why It Matters: Eager apes will have to wait another day to start playing Dookey Dash, as speculation continues to percolate on Twitter around how much the different tiers of passes will cost on the secondary market.

Apes will not only have more time to claim, but also got a more concrete time today for when the claim will start. Interested non-BAYC/MAYC holders will have extra time to obtain a pass before the games begin as well.

Tyler Warner's NFT Market Summary

The crypto market rally which came on Friday temporarily halted the NFT rally in its tracks, with trading volume falling below 20,000 ETH/day for Fri-Sun and most floors seeing a pullback.

Let's take a closer look at the fallout.

What was the impact of the crypto rally on NFTs?

Let's start with what happened in crypto.

Friday afternoon and evening were filled with huge green candles, with ETH running past $1,5000 and BTC past $21,000. The pair currently sit at $1,579 (+20%) and $21,233 (+24%) respectively, up big on the week.

SOL was an even bigger winner, cruising to $23.68 (+45%) and $APE re-took $5 (+8%).

This run essentially halted NFT trading, with volume falling from ~27k ETH on Thurs to ~19k ETH on Friday, then down to 17k ETH on Saturday in the lowest day in weeks. 

Floors fell pretty much universally across the board. A few notable PFP floors, and their percent change on the week are below:

  • BAYC at 70 ETH (-10%)
  • MAYC at 15.3 ETH (-16%)
  • Azuki at 14 ETH (even, but down 10% from local highs near 16)
  • Pudgy Penguins at 5.3 ETH (-16%)

The bad news - most floors fell 5%-15% in line with these above.

The good news - the fallout seems to be over.

Volume has picked back up the past two days, crossing back over 20k ETH yesterday, and most floors seem to have stabilized at these new levels.

What else is moving?

The Memes by 6529 continue to rally, with a full set reaching 88 ETH yesterday after full set sweeps by notable collectors like Dingaling.

Friendship Bracelets are trending the other way, down 15 percent on the week to 0.46 ETH.

Some new joiners have also made a big impact in the low-cap sector over the past few days. A few, in particular, include "a KID called BEAST" at 0.49 ETH, Createra Genesis Land at 1 ETH, and Checks v4 at 0.38 ETH. Each has been top 5-10 in trading volume.

Around Web3

While it was a slow long weekend for news, there were a few notable headlines:

NFT Total Volume

  • Mutant Ape Yacht Club (2,721 ETH, 15.3 ETH Floor)
  • Bored Ape Kennel Club (2,286 ETH, 8.2 ETH)
  • Bored Ape Yacht Club (1,812 ETH, 70 ETH)
  • Createra Genesis Land (692 ETH, 1.02 ETH)
  • a KID called BEAST (579 ETH, 0.49 ETH)

NFT Floor Price Increase

  • Checks v4 (84%, 0.37 ETH Floor)
  • Milady (66%, 1.83 ETH)
  • Wonky Stonks (55%, 0.35 ETH)
  • feetpix (50%, 0.17 ETH)
  • a KID called BEAST (45%, 0.48 ETH)

NFT Floor Price Decrease

  • Createra Genesis Land (-32%, 1.02 ETH Floor)
  • CryptoonGoonz (-15%, 0.3 ETH)
  • Mutant Hound Collars (-14%, 1.29 ETH)
  • Rektguy (-13%, 1.34 ETH)
  • Grails III Mint Pass (-10%, 2.33 ETH)

Upcoming NFT Mints and Reveals

  • Grails III (10:00 a.m. ET)
  • GM: Daybreak Around the World (12:00 p.m. ET)
  • Zero Point (TBD)
  • Dookey Dash: Sewer Passes (TBD)

Today is a huge day for new mints after a slow weekend. Grails III will be the draw of the morning, and the Nat Geo project "GM: Daybreak" could catch some volume (though Polygon is a barrier).

But the main drop is the Sewer Passes which mint for free today for BAYC and MAYC holders. Early projections for floor prices range anywhere from 1 ETH to 5 ETH, and wherever they come out, expect major demand ahead of the game starting tomorrow.
