Jenkins The Valet Tweeted The Cover Art For His Highly Anticipated Book Today. Find Out More Here:

Jenkins The Valet shared the cover art for his highly anticipated book on Twitter earlier today.

“Bored & Dangerous: July 11th. Words by 10x NYT Bestseller @neilstrauss. Art by @mbsjq,” Jenkins tweeted along with an image of the Bored& Dangerous book spinning above a swamp.

As the book spins in the clip, viewers can read the book’s tagline and blurb on the back!

“A new type of book for a new world,” the tagline and blurb reads. “Bored& Dangerous is the result of a collaboration between 10X New York times Best selling author Neil Strauss, Tally Labs, and nearly 3,000 members of the Writer’s Room, a coalition of global creatives. It is the first major book set inside the Ethereum blockchain. Bored and Dangerous tell the story of an unlikely hero, Jenkins the Valet, who parks boats for the wealthy and famous members of the Bored Ape Yacht Club. Alongside Jenkins is a cast of unforgettable characters, each an NFT whose character was created by its owner and licensed for this groundbreaking book. These unforgettable apes range from gold-furred rappers to mad scientist. From red-jacketed playboys to criminal bosses that run the Mutant underworld. Together, they tell a story older than the blockchain itself—one about greed, fear-of-missing-out, and the consequences of always chasing the next big shiny thing. A true page turner, equal parts gripping and hilarious. Once you enter this world you will never want to leave.”

As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, Jenkins and the Tally Labs teamed released more information about their highly anticipated book last week in a Medium post.

"Bored & Dangerous is the first novel set inside of the Bored Ape Yacht Club, and it’s the first true novel that spun out of Web3,” Jenkins wrote. “3,000 members of the Writer’s Room banded together to craft the lore as well as generate creative ideas that led to the plot and tone. After that, 4,075 Apes/Mutants trusted us enough to license their IP to appear in the work. Every single one of those licensors will be receiving royalties in exchange: 50% of Net Profits flow back to licensors.”

In total, there will be a maximum supply 20,826 of Bored& Dangerous NFTs available for mint during a three-phase mint.

The first phase will be a public sale Dutch auction of 2,367 books on July 11th with refunds above the resting price. At the time of this articles publication, Jenkins has not announced the initial mint price for Bored& Dangerous NFTs, but Jenkins said that he will release more information as we get closer to the mint date.

The second phase will be a “Writelist” sale. This phase will also take place on July 11th shortly after the public mint and will remain open for 48 hours.

During the “Writelist” phase 11,517 NFTs will be available to be minted by every Writer’s room NFT holders, every licensed BAYC or MAYC NFT and the 500 winners of the Azurbala specific WL puzzles and members of other communities in the projects network., Any unclaimed NFTs from this phase will be burned, according to the Medium post.

The final phase, phase three, will a free claim for all Writers Room NFT holders. The window for Writers Room NFT holders to mint their Bored& Dangerous NFTs will be open for one week from July 13-20, according to Jenkins.

“Bored & Dangerous has been a labor of love,” Jenkins wrote. “Why? Because we truly believe that a globally distributed community of people can create a better piece of work than any of us can do alone. This is the proof of concept from the Writer’s Room, and we believe it will be a grail for years to come.”

After Apes and non-apes mint their books, Jenkins said there will be a short delay until Bored& Dangerous holders will be able to read the highly anticipated story.

“After minting is completed for Bored & Dangerous NFTs, there will be a small delay on the token gated e-reader experience,” Jenkins wrote. “It’s a complex product that we’re building for the long-run. Our expectation is that book reading will be live about 3 weeks after the NFT sale. In other words, there will be a ~3 week delay in being able to read the book. Ultimately we’ve decided that a more premium experience that comes late is better than a PDF or natively reading on OpenSea. We will share progress frequently.”

The Bored Ape Gazette will continue to follow Jenkins the Valet and the Writer’s Room and will keep you up to date on all things Bored& Dangerous!
