Someone Donated $10K To The Apes Side In The Punks Vs. Apes Charity Competition
With less than 48 left in the Punks Vs Apes charity competition, an anonymous user just donated $10,000 USD to the Apes side.
“Seeing the apes show out like that speaks to the origins of the club,” Punks Vs Apes charity competition creator Ap3Father told the Bored Ape Gazette. “From day one the Bored Ape Yacht Club has been about loving and building together within the community. Today the apes showed that idea never left. I am ecstatic to say we not only raised $10,000 but $20,000 dollars with 48 hours we do not stop here. ON TO 30! I'd also like to say thank you to every person who liked & retweeted our posts, Donated 1$, or donated $10,000. Without this community coming together this would be impossible. I love Web3.”
As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, BAYC member Ap3Father, with the help of Magic Eden, is holding the first ever Punks Vs. Apes Charity competition. This contest pits two of the largest NFT communities against one another in a competition to see which group can raise more money for the Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis Indiana.
“I’m a doctoral student for physiotherapy full time & I love working in pediatrics,” Ap3Father previously told the Bored Ape Gazette. “My university is very close with Riley hospital, and I’ve been able to see first-hand how much they can change a child’s life. When I started to mature in web3, I started to realize all the good we could do with the lowered global barriers of transacting money. Vitalik's tweet about 'the apes not doing enough public good' hit home with me. And I think web3 as a whole could spend more time focused on progressing the public good.”
At the time of this article’s publication, the CryptoPunks side has raised $6297.36 USD while the Bored Ape side has raised $15,659.96 USD.
