From sports, entertainment, and beyond, tracking the famous names out there that have bought into the exclusive, expensive world of Bored Ape NFTs

If there’s been one NFT collection that’s truly defined where the trend has gone in 2021, it’s probably Bored Ape Yacht Club. The exclusive collection of 10,000 unique apes with trendy outfits in front of colorful backgrounds living on the Ethereum blockchain has skyrocketed in popularity and value.

The average sale price for BAYC is currently over $200,000 and growing, with some of the non-fungible tokens with rarer attributes (accessories, outfits, facial features, etc.) going for potentially millions of dollars. Take Bored Ape #7769 for instance: It sold for 2.8 ETH (currently $12,088) on July 1 and 54 ETH (currently $233,141) on Nov. 18. Celebrities from around the world like Stephen Curry, Post Malone, and Jimmy Fallon have not only flocked to buying Apes as a status symbol but immediately updated their social media avatars to show off their new purchases.

About BAYC

Yuga Labs launched the Bored Ape Yacht Club in April 2021 and since then, the world of digital artworks has witnessed a rise in the price and popularity of NFTs. Each Bored Ape is customized with unique colours, facial expressions and outfits. For example, while one ape features brown, clean-shaven, wearing sunglasses, another dons a leopard print, sporting rainbow-coloured teeth.

Having garnered around USD 2 million in its initial days, the craze of buying BAYC collectables proliferated from digital platforms to auction houses. In 2021, Sotheby’s sold two lots of 107 BAYC and 101 Bored Ape Kennel Club (BAKC) NFTs for a mammoth amount of over USD 24 million and over USD 1.8 million, respectively.

And that is not all. Yuga Labs, then, went on to launch Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC) in August 2021. A collection of 20,000 Mutant Apes was created by exposing the existing Bored Apes to a vial of mutant serum.

Although CryptoPunks by LarvaLabs may have started the trend of NFT profile pictures for social media accounts in 2017, it is BAYC who made it mainstream. Such was their renown that NFT enthusiasts and celebrities alike became proud owners of BAYC collectibles. This includes names like Justin Bieber, Jimmy Fallon, Lil Baby, Mark Cuban and Snoop Dogg.
