Bored Ape Yacht Club Members Can Claim Their Ape Fest Tickets This Thursday. The Full Story Here:
Bored Ape Yacht Club members, prepare your Trezors and Ledgers and set up your delegate wallets because the window to claim your Ape Fest 2023 tickets is opening this Thursday at 10 A.M. EST!
After last week’s Ape Fest ticket claim ran into some technical issues, the BAYC and TokenProof are reopening the window for BAYC members to claim their Ape Fest tickets later this week.
“Apes, it’s almost that time. Again, the BAYC tweeted this morning. “Ticket claim for ApeFest Hong Kong goes live this Thursday, August 3 at 10AM ET / 10PM HKT The ticket claim link will be posted on this account and shared on the updated http://apefest.com website.”
Following the BAYC’s post, TokenProof Founder and BAYC member FonzGM took to Twitter to go over the ticket claim and give some helpful tips to make sure it goes smoothly.
“Alright apes let's do this,” Fonz tweeted. “Please make sure you download the tokenproof app and link your wallet ASAP. Wallet delegation through http://warm.xyz and @delegatedotxyz will work, as well as collateralization/staking on @BendDAO and @ParaSpace_NFT. 1 set of tickets per holder, regardless of how many wallets you have linked to your app. If you have any questions or issues, feel free to DM me or send us an email: support (at) http://tokenproof.xyz.”
As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, ApeFest 2023 will be taking place in Hong Kong from November 3rd to November 5th and tickets will be distributed on a first come first serve basis, according to the club.
Further, in an effort to make sure only members who can attend the event are claiming tickets, the BAYC will be charging members a $169 deposit fee that will be returned to Apes once they scan in at ApeFest 2023 or give up their ticket to someone on the waitlist. Along with this refundable deposit, the BAYC will also be charging Apes $269 USD for a plus one ticket.
“Our goal is to have a packed house of apes,” the BAYC wrote. “So the deposit serves as an incentive for apes that can no longer attend, to remember to release their tickets to the next in line on the waiting list. If you do attend, the $169 ticket will be refunded shortly after you attend the event and get scanned in.”
If you’re unable to make it to ApeFest 2023, fear not. The BAYC has all sorts of things in store for members who cannot make it!
“There's plenty in store for apes who can’t make it to Hong Kong,” the club wrote. “There’ll be ways to participate virtually, and we’re also working with the BAYC community to host IRL events globally. Stay tuned!”
The Bored Ape Gazette will continue to follow this week’s ticket claim and will keep you posted on everything Ape Fest! Stay tuned for updates!
