As The Bored Ape Yacht Club Celebrated Its second Birthday, Members Reflected On An Insane Two years
The Bored Ape Yacht Club celebrated its second birthday on Sunday and the community came out to reflect on the last two years and looked towards the future.
The BAYC started off as a collection of 10,000 unique digital collectibles living on the Ethereum blockchain and has grown into an entire NFT universe complete with insane characters, locations, customs, and lore.
As of today, 5,651 wallets hold a Bored Ape, and 11,187 wallets own an insane Mutant. This means that, at most, there are 16,838 BAYC members in the entire world! Let that sink in, wow!
“Life changing for me and many others,” BAYC member 0xWave tweeted. “And in so many ways. I feel like I have an incredible network to tap into anywhere around the world in almost any industry. I’ve made tight friendships with people I’ve yet to meet IRL And I love the art, and have since 0.08E “
It’s amazing how much of an impact a .08 Eth mint in April 2021 had on people’s lives; and it’s even more amazing that its just getting started thanks to this community and Yuga Labs!
“Happy 2-year anniversary to the Bored Ape Yacht Club,” the club tweeted along with an insane highlight reel. “Community led projects have brought the BAYC places we never expected. Can’t wait to see what comes next.”
The best story of our time,” BAYC member and Mutant Cartel Founder Lior.Eth tweeted. “Web3 is synonymous with BAYC, and this video shows exactly why. Incredible work from @yugalabs, the best builders in the world. In this forever, and there’s no going back.”
The Bored Ape Gazette is working on continued coverage of the BAYC’s second anniversary and will keep you posted on all things ape for years to come. Stay tuned for updates!
