SIGNED: Notable Bored Ape Yacht Club Member Baron VonHustle Signed A Deal With GFuel
This Bored Ape Yacht Club member has been around the swamp since the beginning and just got his first endorsement deal with an energy drink company.
Baron VonHustle has been a Bored Ape Yacht Club member since the club’s inception minting Bored Ape #2339 AKA Jason last year on May first. Since that time, VonHustle and Jason have worked to build up the BAYC ecosystem creating “The Boring Show” and “The Boring Stones NFT.”
After almost a year of work, VonHustle’s dedication to the BAYC and his commitment to community building caught the eye of GFuel energy drink. “They reached out to me because of my commitment to building community, building my apes character, and showcasing genuine support for others success in the NFT space,” VonHustle told the Bored Ape Gazette.
After months of planning, VonHustle and GFuel announced that they’re teaming up to work on an NFT project together based on Bored Ape #2339 AKA Jason. “Each nft is completely unique and built off my ape and as a special bonus to the nft, it comes with physical items,” VonHustle said. “After minting is completed, each nft holder will be able to redeem a physical GFuel box set.”
This GFuel box set will include the company’s new drink flavor Jason goes bananas. “It’s super delicious,” VonHustle said. “I already got to taste test and I loved it.”
The NFT goes on presale on May 19th and on public sale on May 20th. The NFT will const .08 Eth.
When asked what advice he had for other apes trying to get endorsement deals, VonHustle said it’s all about character development.
“I’d say for tips for community members looking to grow their IP, start with creating a few storylines about your character,” he said. “What are their hobbies, what are they like, what do they care about? Start with little definitions of characters and you’ll develop an entire story by connecting the dots.”
The Bored Ape Gazette will continue to follow VonHustle and GFuel and let you know when the energy drink becomes avaible.
