'I WANTED BACK': This BAYC Member Is An Island Boy Again After Purchasing A Center Island Deed For $17K USD

Bored Ape Yacht Club member Mnats knows that timing and location are everything when it comes to digital real estate. That’s why he decided to ape back into Otherside’s Center Island now as Yuga Labs gets ready to launch Project Dragon next month!

On Sunday, BAYC  member  and Bored Maps founder Mnats closed a deal on a premiere piece of Otherside land, purchasing Otherdeed #90 for 5.25 Eth or $17,716 USD.

Otherdeed #90 is a three-star Sludge environment Otherdeed on Biogenic Swamp sediment with a petrified, Durinia, Runa, and Whisper resources.

Otherdeed #90 is also located on Otherside’s center island and is just a few blocks away from the BAYC Clubhouse, according to Yuga Labs’ Otherside map.

“I just got the #90, I am back in Club Island bby,” Mnats tweeted after his purchase.


Mnats is no stranger to Otherside’s Center Island community. Last month, he sold Otherdeed #214 for 9.9 ETH, or $30,000.

After today's purchase, Mnats told his fellow BAYC members that he’s 'wanted back in' to Otherside Center Island since he sold and that he’s excited to see what Garga and the Yuga Labs team have been cooking up with Project Dragon next month. 'July will be big for Otherside,' he tweeted.

As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, Garga tweeted that he and the Yuga Labs team will start shipping what they have been working on since he returned as the company’s CEO in February 2024.


"Been a busy, hard four months since I stepped in as CEO of Yuga but stoked for July," Garga tweeted earlier this week. "Early on Gordon and I would say to each other that the job of an NFT founder is to eat shit sandwiches. Do hard things and smile and move on. Fair share of shit sandwiches and hard choices over the last few months. But our bi-weekly "What's Up Yuga" meeting where we demo all the things being built throughout the company has gotten to be incredible. Tons of delightful stuff being made, at a faster clip than ever before. More of what we're doing and how we're doing it is under my supervision than at any time since 2021. And Gordo making time to sprinkle his juju on stuff the team is working on too. There's a lag time of course. Nothing we've been working on since I've been back has shipped. But that changes next month.”



While we do not know everything that Garga and Yuga Labs have planned for July, we do know that Yuga Labs’ 3,000+ multiplayer action shooter series, Project Dragon, is set to begin at some point.


Further, we also know that the ApeCoin DAO’s ApeChain is slated to launch as part of the Arbitrum orbit chains at some point in July and that Yuga Labs is one of the 40+ developers committed to building on $Ape, according to Horizen Labs' VP of Ecosystem Growth, Blockchainzilla.


The Bored Ape Gazette will continue to follow all things Otherside and will let you know about every major deal happening around the swamp. Stay tuned for updates!
