The Elite Apes Signed A 3-Year-Deal With Epik Venture's U-Topia Ecosystem To Bring Apes Everywhere!
An epic collaboration emerged from the jungle and reached the swamp today after the Elite Apes of Hong Kong announced that they had signed a three-year eight-figure deal with Epik Venture’s U-Topia ecosystem!
November has been anything but boring for the Elite Apes, who started the month by welcoming the BAYC community to Hong Kong for ApeFest 2023 and ended it by signing a three-year, eight-figure deal with a metaverse maker that aims to bridge the gap between Web2 and Web3.
"This massive partnership will usher in a new era of content within web, demonstrating how global brands and IP will interact within the industry to the world in the coming months." Elite apes Founder Jason Au said in a press release. “Elite Apes will leverage the reach of U-Topia over the next 3 years to bring BAYC and other NFTs to the masses similar to the reach of ApeFest, through iconic partnerships in large title video games, block buster movies, global music videos, and beloved sport teams. Fans and consumers alike will be treated to a new level of access like never seen before. With the support of the global ape community, and companies like Yuga and Animoca Brands, this ambitious goal is poised for success.”
For Apes who are unfamiliar with Epik Ventures, they are a digital asset company that began in 2018 and works with hundreds of brands to create digital items such as Universal, Warner Music Group, Capcom, Tencent Games, among others.
"This collaboration is a testament to the power of collective creativity by utilizing IP Licensing for transformative and immersive web3 experiences for everyone in the space," Epik’s COO said Gary Ma said in a press release. "We can't wait to see the incredible innovations that will emerge from this new partnership, and we are confident that it will set a new standard for immersive, next-generation fan experiences across the consumer landscape."
The Yugaverse can expect to see the Elite Apes and Epik Ventures first collaboration ‘coming out of the jungle’ next year!
BAYC members should also keep their eyes peeled for potential casting opportunities for their primates!
