Yuga Labs And The Bored Ape Yacht Club Launched The First BAYC Community Council Today
It was anything but boring at the Bored Ape Yacht Club on Wednesday as the club announced the creation of the first community council.
“Apes, we wouldn’t be where we are today without our incredible community,” the BAYC tweeted this afternoon. “We’re excited to announce the first BAYC community council made up of 7 long standing proactive community members to work alongside us moving forward. To help the community grow and thrive, we’ve assembled Apes with a proven track record of proactively and positively contributing to the club since the start. This council was formed with the intention of representing the club at large and providing an avenue for new perspectives.”
The seven bored apes that make up the first BAYC Community Council are Josh Ong, SeraStargirl, Laura Rod, 0xEthan, 0xWave, Negi, and Peter Fang.
Following the BAYC Community Council announcement, the BAYC’s parent company Yuga Labs explained that the council was autonomous from Yuga Labs and that the group will be focused on collecting feedback from the BAYC and MAYC communities and uplifting community-driven initiatives and projects.
“Every Ape in our community has directly impacted our decision-making from day one,” Yuga Labs wrote. “This council, and future councils to come, puts a more formal, efficient and consistent process in place for Yuga leadership to get community feedback and advice on an ongoing basis.”
