As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, the BAYC’s parent company, Yuga Labs, teamed up with Saasy Labs earlier this year and launched the Made by Apes program.
“Made by Apes empowers holder-creators of BAYC and MAYC NFTs by verifying, supporting, and amplifying goods or services they offer using their BAYC and MAYC NFTs,” Yuga Labs wrote on the Made By Apes Website. “The Made by Apes program authenticates that licensees own a BAYC or MAYC NFT and grants a license to use the Yuga-made Made by Apes logo in connection with their products or services.”
The goal of the Made by Apes program and licenses is to give Apes' products and services more legitimacy and exposure as Yuga Labs confirms via on-chain data that they are, in fact, 'made by Apes!
