Updated: Feb 8
A massive deal went down at the Bored Ape Yacht Club Monday morning involving two well-known BAYC members and a gold fur ape.
BAYC member Domain sold Bored Ape #544 to BAYC member Saint Bayview for 675 Eth or roughly 2.8 million USD.
“Thank you @domain for a wonderful trade this morning,” Saint Bayview tweeted after the deal. “I couldn’t be happier with my 2nd BAYC #544 a 7 trait gold rare!”
Bored Ape #544 is a seven trait gold fur ape with a sushi chef headband, eye patch and tuxedo shirt. Based on these traits, Bored Ape #544 is the 31st most rare ape, according to Rarity Tools.
While Bored Ape #544 is only Saint Bayview’s second bored ape, he sure has been making waves at the BAYC lately.
As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, Saint Bayview purchased the 1/1 Rolling Stones BAYC Collab cover for 100 Eth. “I find the NFT space fascinating, especially dynamic projects like BAYC, Saint Bayview previously tweeted after purchasing the cover. “I have never sold any NFT I purchased, because I don’t do this for the money. I do it out of intrigue. See you in the swamp!”
After todays purhcase, Saint Bayview now holds two Bored Apes, two Bored Ape Kennel Club Dogs, one Mutant Ape, an M1 serum, an M2 serum and the previously mentioned Rolling Stones Collab Cover.
After the sale, Domain took to Twitter to congratulate Saint Bayview on the purchase and let the BAYC community know what he plans to do next.
“Well there goes Goldy,” Domain tweeted. “A huge congrats to @SaintBayview on the purchase and for winning the iconic @RollingStones piece recently. I am going to be focusing on the @connect project with the funds and build something incredible.”
The @Connect project that Domain referenced in his tweet is his project, Paradise Trippies. Paradise Trippies is he and his brothers NFT project that is inspired by Bored Ape 9696. Prior to today’s trade, Domain’s brother, Andy Booth told the Bored Ape Gazette a little about he and his brother’s project and how it’s expanding on the story of their Trippy fur ape.
“It’s an expansion of the narrative,” Booth said. “Our interpretation and character development. Paradise is just now another destination and potential part of a bigger overall story. That’s part of being an ape holder!”
Public mint for Paradise Trippies begins on November 3rd, according to the projects website. Apes who are interested in learning more about it can check it out here: https://paradise.com and follow the project on Twitter @Connect
