Yuga Labs, the creator of ‘Bored Ape Yacht Club’, has collaborated with Hong Kong-based gaming company Animoca Brands to launch BAYC’s first metaverse play-to-earn game.
A teaser posted on social media revealed a 3D gaming experience in which BAYC owners can use their Ape NFTs as personal avatars.
The teaser also depicts a Bored Ape being taken to the ‘Otherside’ metaverse, where the Ape meets other popular NFTs such as ‘CryptoPunks’, ‘Mutant Ape Yacht Club,’ ‘Nouns’, ‘World of Women’, and more.
Last week, the official BAYC token, ApeCoin, was launched as a tool for purchasing products and services from Yuga Labs to empower the APE ecosystem.
On the Flipside
- Despite last week’s announcements, today’s teaser did little to push ApeCoin’s value, which now stands at $10.60, as of this writing – a 5% drop over the last 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap.
