Jenkins The Valet
Jenkins the Valet’s Writer’s Room is a collection of 6,942 NFTs that unlock several members-only web3 benefits such as voting power and creative direction over the Jenkins the Valet Novel. Jenkins the Valet is based on Bored Ape #1798, built with traits that resemble a Valet driver.
The main author of the first book is a 10x NYT bestselling author Neil Strauss, with creative direction decided upon by voting among the community. There are many notable advisors to the project, including Andy Chorlian, founder of Fractional.art, Drew Austin, Founder of Redbeard Ventures, NFT attorney Jacob Martin, GMoney, and several others.
Holding a Jenkins the Valet NFT gives holders the opportunity to license Bored Apes or Mutant Apes to the story, and be inscribed as an author and creator in every Jenkins work that is produced. There are four tiers of Writer’s Room NFTs: A Valet Ticket, Yacht Keys, a Valet Stand, and a WAGMI Yacht.
Each comes with different perks but all receive the same financial incentives from book sales. Owners of the highest tier, the WAGMI Yacht, will have their licensed Ape or Mutant featured as a character in the book written by the Writer’s Room. If a Writer's Room NFT holder does not have an Ape or Mutant to license, they are able to negotiate a licensing deal with an Ape or Mutant holder in which a percentage of royalties for that NFT will go to the holder of that Bored or Mutant Ape. Like Punks Comic, the project has signed with Creative Artists Agency (CAA) for representation across books, film, TV, podcasts, and more.
