What are Mutant Ape Yacht Club NFTs?
Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC) is a project from the creators of the globally renowned Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC), Yuga Labs. The project was launched with the purpose of rewarding Bored Ape holders and creating an additional appealing feature for the pieces of the original collection. Half of the Mutant Ape NFTs are versions of Bored Apes that are created after being exposed to a so-called MUTANT SERUM. In practice, this means that each Bored Ape NFT allows its holder to mint a Mutant Ape. The other half could be minted during the public sale of the collection, bringing the maximum number of Mutant Apes to 20,000.
Thanks to the popularity of Bored Apes, Mutant Apes also took off right from the get-go and brought a whopping $96M in sales within a short period of time. Fast-forward to the beginning of Q2 2022, and the floor price of Mutant Apes is at around 32 ETH, with the highest value of 350 ETH for Ape 4849.
What’s unique about Mutant Ape Yacht Club NFTs?
There are multiple aspects that make Mutant Apes a one-of-a-kind collection, namely their global reputation, flashy styling, and their association with Bored Apes. To ensure a wide variety of outcomes, the above-mentioned SERUMs were airdropped as M1, M2, and M3. When treated with M1 and M2, the Mutant versions resemble their original Bored Ape NFT, but when hit with M3, they will turn out to be something almost completely unrelated, but still monkey-shaped. The minting of Mutant Apes was actually not as straightforward as one would think. In fact, it was almost a stealth launch, and the exact sale date was revealed only very shortly before the event.
What’s ahead for Mutant Ape Yacht Club NFTs?
The future of the Mutant Apes is pretty misty, as the project’s official roadmap has already ended months earlier. However, considering that MAYC is one of the most popular NFT collections to date by trading volume, it is safe to assume that there will be plenty of novel use cases or even new collections revealed by either the community or Yuga Labs—just make sure to be there when the updates happen, things will escalate quickly.
