In recent weeks, the BAYC has seen a surge in gold fur ape and dog purchases. As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, a gold fur ape sold for 199 Eth earlier this week and a Meebits whale bought a gold fur dog for 75 Eth. After this bundle sale, the floor price for a gold fur ape is 420 Eth or $1,260,000. The floor for a BAKC gold fur dog is 24.75 Eth.
The rise in gold fur apes price seems to be directly correlated with the BAYC crossing 5,000 unique members and the announcement that Christies will be auctioning bored apes at its Hong Kong location next month.
After the record purchase, the new owner of the golden duo, TheArtchitech, continued their bored ape buying spree. So far, TheArtchitech has spent 907 Eth or $2,721,000 USD in past day on BAYC apes and dogs. TheArtchitech also has several high value offers still outstanding.
The Bored Ape Gazette will continue to follow TheArtchitech and let you know what their next big purchase is.
