The Bored Ape Yacht Club May Be Heading Christies Hong Kong Next Month. Find Out What We Know:
The Bored Ape Yacht Club may be the next Non-fungible Token to be auctioned by one of the major auction houses.
A Discord user named “NoahThePoseur” joined the BAYC Discord today and told the community that Christies (where he works) will be auctioning bored apes at its Hong Kong location next month.
“Ayyyy! New to the server,” NoahThePoseur wrote. I’m Noah the NFT guy at Chrisities” We’re selling some BAYC in September in HK. Full details to be released Friday.”
After Noah’s message in the discord apes got excited and the excitement quickly spread to Twitter.
The Bored Ape Gazette tweeted out a screenshot of the message and began trying to verify if the user is in fact Christie’s NFT Specialist, Noah Davis.
BAYC member, OxWave, reached out to the Bored Ape Gazette to confirm that the user, “NoahThePoseur” is in fact Noah Davis.
“I invited him to BAYC discord from punks discord,” OxWave said. "He's been engaged there a long time."
While the Bored Ape Gazette was unable to DM Davis Via Twitter @ NonFungibleNoah, he did tweet a message and image that seems to confirm that it was in fact him in the Discord earlier today.
The image Davis tweeted was of a Discord message from BAYC member, Dorianmusic. In the image, Dorianmusic writes, “34 ape sales in last 60 minutes.”
Davis shared an image on Twitter with the caption, “Whoops did I do that?”
Based on all this evidence, it seems reasonable to believe that Bored Apes will be sold at Chrsitie’s Hong Kong in the near future.
Later in the evening, apes began speculating what this could mean for the BAYC going forward.
“Not only is Christie’s auction huge…. But it’s happening in Asia, BAYC member Ape6056 AKA Ape Father tweeted. “A market that we have yet to see the full potential of…. Strap in.”
For those unfamiliar with Christie’s, it is a British auction house founded in 1766 by James Christie, according to Wikipedia. Earlier this year, Christie’s auctioned Crypto artist, Beeple’s “Everydays: The First 5000 Days collection for $69 million, according to their website.
