A Pillar of the BAYC Universe: Meet the Mutant Ape Yacht Club

Comments are off for this post.
Few NFT collections are as popular as the Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC). Second only to its Bored Ape predecessors, MAYC NFTs embody the same prestige as other blue-chip projects, with the bonus of being directly linked to the vast universe being built by Yuga Labs. While MAYC has become prominent, many enthusiasts remain oblivious to the origins and implications of the coveted collection. Yes, Mutant Apes is a subsidiary of Yuga, but the discerning factors that make them truly unique are often glazed over in the annals of NFT history. Why were Mutant Apes released in the first place?

Major League Soccer — the US’ official soccer league (or “football league” if you’re in any other part of the world) — just announced a notable new signing: Striker, a Bored Ape NFT.

See How Google AI Gave New Life to 10,000 Bored Ape NFTs

Imaging technology based on AI has become increasingly powerful and impressive with the passing of time. Most notably, the NFT art space has benefitted substantially from this emerging technology, with projects like Entropy Cards featuring pieces almost entirely generated using AI tools. Some projects in the NFT space are even inching towards embedding AIs into NFTs. However, with the release of the Artsy Monke collection, perhaps the time is ripe to embrace tradition, and return to monke. For those skeptical about the project based on its name alone, this isn’t an attempt to latch onto the branding that’s defined the […]

While still a new and relatively undeveloped concept in Web3, the NFT market continues to grow, with NFT rentals forming a new economy within the blockchain ecosystem. NFT rentals aim to address the question of reliable income with NFTs, in a bid to offer more than speculative price increases. Instead of letting your digital assets sit idle in your wallet, proponents argue, why not rent them (and their utility) out and earn passive income in the process? MouseBelt Labs, for example, recently developed a platform for NFT rentals called BoredJobs, which is essentially a licensing marketplace that lists thousands of Bored […]

It’s Time to Talk About the Baseless BAYC Nazi Claims

Comments are off for this post.
On October 2, 1984, author and media theorist Neil Postman gave the keynote address at the Frankfurt Book Fair. In that address, Postman presented an essay entitled “Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Showbusiness.” During his talk, he surprised the crowd by saying he thought the fair’s theme, which was focused on George Orwell, was a mistake. Of the two defining dystopian novels of the 20th century, Postman argued that Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World got it right, not Orwell’s 1984.  “Orwell missed the mark completely,” he explained in a statement that remains, for some, as startling […]

Comments are off for this post.
Profile picture (PFP) non-fungible tokens (NFTs) have come to dominate the NFT ecosystem. As these generative avatar projects became astoundingly popular in 2021, their significance has only continued to increase as the NFT ecosystem has grown. At its core, a PFP NFT is a digital token or artwork that is designed to be displayed as a person’s social media profile picture.

They’re collectibles in the sense that they usually come in large quantities (10,000 […]

It has already been a truly wild year for the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC), and 2022 isn’t even half over.
