There has been a barrel of nuclear waste that has taken Twitter and the internet by storm this week. One of the biggest in the industry, Bored Ape Yacht Club are smashing it already in the new year with their Mega Mutant Serum NFT.
Bored Ape Yacht Club are one of the most recognisable within the NFT community. Their ape pixelated NFTs have become a staple with 10,000 unique characters created. The Bored Apes live on the Ethereum blockchain and have 170 different traits from headwear, clothing and expressions. The more unique traits a Bored Ape has, the more valuable it becomes.
A piece was written a few days ago about the Mega Mutant Serum that suddenly jumped from a bid of 69.69ETH to 1,000ETH. This created a conversation online about how far this specific NFT can go.
Twitter erupted in the early hours this morning when it was announced that the Mutant Mega Serum received a new bid. It showed that someone had bid 1420.69ETH on the waste can. That is over 5 million dollars. A tasty sum for Bored Ape Yacht Club.
When looking at OpenSea’s lifetime top sellers, CryptoPunks reign supreme. Bored Yacht Ape Club come a solid second and their sales have gone up over 150% this week alone. There are 6,100 owners of their NFTs. Mutant Ape Yacht Club are at number 5 on the list. Their sales have increased by 128% in the last 24 hours, impressive. It has been going great for the Mutant Apes and shall that continue.
