Here’s a list of its characteristics, as well as how many others share them:
- Eyes: Bloodshot (846)
- Mouth: Bored (2,272)
- Background: Purple (1,290)
- Hat: Sushi Chef Headband (187)
- Fur: Red (474)
- Clothes: Leather Punk Jacket (153)
Bored Apes are the ideal cultural repository for NFT collectors. In 2021, the NFT collection has grown in popularity, with an ever-growing list of top-tier celebrities using apes as their Twitter profile images. Rare blockchain-based avatars are all the rage for people wishing to flex online, thanks to the Metaverse’s recent surge in popularity.
Being a member of the Bored Ape Yacht Club is more than just flexing on the internet. Yuga Labs, the designers of the Bored Apes, frequently hold exclusive parties with free private performances from club members such as Lil Baby. Post Malone, Stephen Curry, Dez Bryant, and Jimmy Kimmel are among the other noteworthy members of the group.
Yuga Labs also designed the Mutant Apes NFT collection, which also gives membership to the coveted club. There are 20,000 Mutant Apes in all, and the price floor has historically been lower than the Bored Apes.
