Have you ever wondered what it would be like to befriend the coolest kid in class or suddenly become the right-hand to the President? Becoming a part of the Mutant Ape Yacht Club is exactly that. Perks upon perks, and some more! Let’s get to know the Mutant Ape NFT collection.
Where did the Mutant Apes come from?
First of all, let’s take a walk down memory lane when Yugalabs, the creators of Bored Ape Yacht Club, decided to come up with a brilliant concept. In August 2021, they launched 10k Mutant Apes into the market for grabs. Significantly, these sold out in under an hour and raised $96 million. Absolutely insane! Next, they decided to airdrop the lucky owners of 10k Bored Ape NFTs, a mutant serum NFT. Once you use it, it could alter the appearance of their bored ape. Who would have thought that shape-shifting would exist beyond the non-fiction realm? This gives us 20,000 highly-coveted and sought after Mutants that took the world by storm.
Let’s go over some stats real quick. According to OpenSea the 24h volume, when writing this, amounts to 140.78 ETH and the floor price for a Mutant Ape NFT is 13.6 ETH (17,683$).A high-end price tag to go with the silver spoon, am I right? These Apes currently belong to 12,937 fine owners including many celebrities we all love to gush over in our free time. And to name a few: Justin Bieber, Post Malone, Stephen Curry, Future, Paris Hilton, Gwyneth Paltrow and more. Just mentioning these names has cost me some bills…
