Bored Ape Yacht Club Returns to Instagram

Bored Ape Yacht Club Returns to Instagram

Bored Ape Yacht Club reopened its Instagram page Saturday for the first time since the account was compromised in April and more than $2 million was stolen from victims of the hack.

“Our IG was compromised back in the spring (like many others’ in the NFT space. So we took a break for a bit,” BAYC said in an Instagram story.

Following the return, the team said it has been working on a brand new website where users will be able to view company announcements in one place. With the goal in mind that the community itself will provide the news for the community.

Upon reopening the accounts the team let it be known that the official Bored Ape Yacht Club Instagram will be the official account for Bored Ape Yacht Club, Mutant Ape Yacht Club, and Bored Ape Kennel Club news. While the news for Otherside will be provided through the official Otherside Meta Instagram account. 

When getting news about the projects directly on Instagram, users should follow the correct accounts and confirm the sources for any links posted to them.
