Updated: Feb 8, 2022
Two notable Bored Ape Yacht Club members made a blockbuster trade late last night.
Artman and Ohhshiny made waves at the BAYC Tuesday evening as the pair traded a rare, bored ape for a lot of Eth plus a treasure trove of art by notable crypto artist Beeple and Fewocious.
In the trade, Artman received Bored Ape #2488 and the primates corresponding M1 and M2 Mutant apes. Bored Ape #2488 is a five-trait trippy fur ape rocking a Hawaiian shirt with blue beam eyes. Based on these traits, Bored Ape 47th most rare ape, according to Rarity Tools.
As Artman received Bored Ape #2488, Ohhshiny received 425 Eth or $1,615,000 USD along with some amazing works of crypto art, including Beeple’s famous GigaChad.
“From the beginning, I knew this deal was going to be something special when @ARTMAN141 asked me if I was interested in art, Ohhshiny tweeted after the trade. “As some of you know, I'd spent a career in art before NFTs. Yes, I am interested in art! I love art, but what art could he own as special as my ape?!... It turns out, @ARTMAN141has a legendary collection. A collection that would be very hard to quantify in value. Filled with unique and editioned works by the best artists in the space. So, we began trading possibilities back and forth over what arrangement could possibly be made. In the end, we settled on a small treasure of @beeple's and
@fewocious+ eth in exchange for what may be the most unique combo of traits in all of BAYC. I feel honored to have taken part in this, and wish @ARTMAN141enjoys his collection in good health as I will with mine.”
