CONFIRMED: The BAYC Is Heading To Christies
The Bored Ape Yacht Club confirmed that the club is heading to Christies.
“We can confirm we did speak with Christies about the upcoming auction,” Gargamel wrote on the community Discord. “We want to wait for their formal announcement on Friday, but since there's been a lot of questions about the authenticity of this we just felt it was prudent to say we did email and get on the phone with them. It's happening.”
As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, Chrsities NFT Specialist, Noah Davis, joined the BAYC Discord channel and told the club that Christies will be auctioning off the items at their Hong Kong location next month.
“Ayyyy! New to the server,” Davis wrote. “I’m Noah the NFT guy at Christies” We’re selling some BAYC in September in HK. Full details to be released Friday.”
After Davis’ comments, the BAYC market took off like a rocket.
In total, 285 bored apes were purchased yesterday and another 268 were sold today at the time of this articles publication, according to Evaluate. Market.
As bored apes were being sold left and right, the floor price for an ape rose to 13.9 Eth or $37,530 USD at the time of this articles publication.
Along with a rising floor price, the number of unique BAYC members also increased to 5062.
The Bored Ape Gazette will continue to cover the Christies auction and let you know when an official announcement is made.
