BAYC never ceases to amaze us, and this time, their Mega Mutant Serum was purchased for a whopping 888.0 ETH or $3.6 million. In fact, the Mega Mutant Serum was airdropped to the seller for being a BAYC holder.
So, this serum was brought by Taylor Gerring, the co-founder of Ethereum Foundation, which is a non-profit supporting blockchain technology. Given that, Taylor has even decided to conduct a live stream featuring the Mutant Reveal.
So, what exactly is a Mega Mutant Serum?
In its series of rewards, BAYC launched an entirely new NFT collection in August. Yes! We’re talking about MAYC (Mutant Ape Yacht Club). These NFTs were given to all BAYC holders via airdrops of mutant serums. Simply put, a BAYC holder can just infuse their Bored Ape with Mega Mutant Serum to generate a brand new Mutant Ape. Therefore, all BAYC holders with mutant serum are proud owners of MAYC as well.
Basically, these Mega Mutant Serum were launched in three tiers: M1, M2 and M3. Where Bored Ape infused with M1 or M2 carry the characteristics of a first gorilla. On the other hand, M3 serum generates an ape with more uncommon attributes.
Currently, the MAYC collection holds a floor price of 10.95 ETH with over 145 ETH in volume traded. The collection is available for public sale at OpenSea. If you’re interested in watching Taylor Gerring’s Livestream, follow him here
