A hugely successful and beloved NFT project, the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) is a collection of 10,000 unique bored apes. It’s on the Ethereum blockchain and has a mint price of 0.08 ETH. Since its launch in April 2021, the major project has onboarded several high-profile and celebrity collectors to the NFT ecosystem.

Bored Ape doubles as a player’s Yacht Club membership card and grants access to members-only benefits, the first of which is access to THE BATHROOM, a collaborative graffiti board. The community can unlock future areas and perks through roadmap activation.

Miami 2035

“The Miami 2035 experience is a first look of what’s to come inside the BAYC x Sandbox social hub,”

“Players will complete mini-games while also interacting with the environment to learn of future utility, integrations and games. There is still more environments to build out but this is the first step into the sandbox world for the Bored Ape Yacht Club.” – TropicalVirtual.Eth.

The BAYC is just one of the Sandbox’s 27 experience partners for the company’s Alpha Season 3. In total, the Sandbox will have 90+ experiences in its Metaverse over ten weeks, according to the Sandbox’s press release

BAYC departs from previous NFTs by gamifying and incentivizing community collaboration throughout its roadmap. Players can engage in simple activities such as scribbling graffiti on a members-access-only digital bathroom wall to more ambitious projects such as co-creating community IP and media.

The Bored Apes

The Bored Ape YC has acquired “blue-chip” status by integrating internet culture, crypto, and art into a vibrant community. For celebrities such as Steph Curry and Tyrese Haliburton, “aping-in” adds to the exclusivity component. Still, a common theme that underscores the community’s ethos since its origins is inclusivity and non-elitism.

The community is fun, creative, and alive with possibilities. The roadmap is reaching its end, but we’re looking forward to “the final battle.” Keep your eyes open for more updates from this awesome partnership.

“Apes will be able to jump in and perform a few missions and learn of what’s to come in the future. And as sandbox rolls out more updates, we will continue to update the experience. Also, it’s mainly a Social Hub over a full game world. There will be more quests and games added over time but essentially a place for apes to casually hang out and interact.” – The Bored Ape Gazette.
