BEHIND THE DEAL: These Bored Ape Yacht Club Members Made A Trippy Trio Trade Earlier This Week:
This notable NFT flipper traded his way from 4Eth to a Trippy fur ape full set earlier this week.
“I STILL CANNOT BELIEVE IT,” BAYC member Erick AKA EB7 tweeted earlier this week. “ACQUIRED. WELCOME HOME @BoredApeYC FULL PIMP COAT TRIPPY SET! 8 months of flipping, 12 hours a day from 4 eth but it’s here. Never think something is out of reach just work for it! Thank you everyone that supported me through this. We did it.”
Erick purchased Bored Ape #3275 and the apes two corresponding Mutant Apes from BAYC member PTM for 315 Eth or 329,000 USD.
Bored Ape #3275 and the apes corresponding Mutants are seven-trait trippy fur primates with pimp coats and Irish boho hats. Based on these traits, Bored Ape #3275 is the 131st most rate primate, according to Rarity Tools.
For Erick, flipping his way into a trippy fur ape has been a goal for him for months.
“The timing of this buy for me wasn't because of specific market conditions, I have been flipping relentlessly for months trying to make it to my goal of the trippy and over the past 2 months I have been 5-10 eth away from deals and just missed out, “Erick explained. “So when the opportunity presented itself this time and I was in a position to buy. I couldn’t pass it up, especially with it being a pimp coat trippy, pimp coat ape was my brand for a long time so to have it combined on the trippy was just the perfect ending.
As Erick got his perfect trippy ending, notable BAYC collector PTM told the Gazette that he has mixed feelings after the sale.
“It’s a bittersweet sale because it’s an ape I’ve held since May ’21,” PTM told the Gazette. “But the buyers made it a smooth transaction and I know the ape is in good hands in their collection. The proceeds from the sale are going right back into Yuga ecosystem assets. Can’t say exactly what it is yet but I’m excited for what I’m acquiring next.”
The Bored Ape Gazette will continue to follow Erick and PTM and will let you know what he of these collectors do next!
