As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, Gucci is selling 3,333 KodaPendants, that have a digital and physical component to them, for 450 $Ape each this Thursday, April 6th, at 6 P.M. EST.
“Coming to life in both digital and physical form, the #GucciKodaPendant will present itself first as a metadata upgrade for your Koda or Vessel NFT, then as a physical #GucciJewelry necklace. #OthersideRelicsByGucci,” Gucci tweeted. “Those eligible to purchase can do so on Thursday, April 6.”
While we don’t know what Gucci has in store after this drop, we do know that Yuga Labs and Gucci signed a multi-year partnership last week and that these KodaPendants are just a gesture of “goodwill” between the mysterious Voyager and Blue, according to Gucci’s website.
“To honor and commemorate Otherside’s creation, Blue carves each of these precious chips of Obelisk into a familiar shape: that of the bottle that contained the blue fluid from which Otherside began,” Gucci wrote. “Blue offers these spiritual relics to Vessels and Kodas to remind them of their origins. A mysterious golden Voyager, having witnessed Blue’s creation of the bottles, approaches him and proposes a partnership: if Blue will agree to teach the golden Voyager to master Otherside magic, the Voyager will teach Blue to craft other exquisite items. As a gesture of goodwill, the Voyager presents Blue with the chains from which the bottle relics will hang.”
The Bored Ape Gazette will continue to follow Gucci’s Otherside Relics collection and will keep you posted on this Thursday’s KodaPendant drop. Stay tuned for updates!
