Updated: Dec 30, 2023
Longtime Bored Ape Yacht Club member and billionaire Mark Cuban made waves around the swamp last night after he tweeted that he was interested in buying more Bored Apes if the price was right!
Things were anything but boring on Friday after Mark Cuban, who has been a member of the BAYC since June 2021 and was a seed round investor in Yuga Labs in 2022, replied to an anti-NFT tweet from sports reporter Bob Sturm, saying that he would buy his Bored Apes if he had any!
“If you have any bored apes, for the right price I’ll buy them,” Cuban tweeted.
Cuban’s comment kicked off a copy pasta trend not only around the BAYC but also the Web3 space with Apes, AlienFrens, MFers and others tweeting that they will buy various NFTs for the right price!
At the time of this article’s publication, Cuban has not purchased any Apes from Sturm but Cuban does own the M2 version of his primate, CryptoPunk #869, and Meebit #8126, according to Etherscan.
As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, Cuban joined the BAYC on May 22, 2021, after BAYC member PropsToThePros gifted the billionaire Bored Ape #1597.
After joining the swamp in May 2021, Cuban was part of Yuga Labs’ $450 million seed round in March 2022 alongside a 36-person who's who list of tech and Hollywood!
The Bored Ape Gazette will continue to follow Cuban and will let you know if he purchases any more Apes. Stay tuned for updates!
