OpenSea delists Bored Ape Copycat project and Aptly called PHAYC NFTs

As the Bored Ape Yacht Club keeps on improving tremendously, the release of its copycat series’ was inevitable. Projects would copy the BAYC artworks and list them on marketplaces like OpenSea in the hopes of earning easy money. Now, OpenSea has delisted two of them: Bored Ape and copycat projects.

First on the list of Bored Ape copycat projects is the Phunky Ape Yacht Club (PAYC). This series is a copy of the original BAYC paintings, but the apes are mirrored to the left. “Apes are on the right side of history,” the collection’s Twitter biography states.

The next project that is properly named is the copy project, PHAYC, a play on “fake” and “BAYC”. It also followed the path of PAYC to make left-facing copies of Bored Apes. The biography of this one is “PHAYC IT TIL YOU MAKE IT”.

CoinDesk reported that both projects were released the previous week, with the launch of PHAYC a few hours after PAYC. Appealingly, both projects sold out after a few hours. Incredibly, the two even attacked each other on Twitter, insisting on being the prime Bored Ape copycats.
Any way, Ultimately, OpenSea banned both projects for allegedly infringing on the platform’s intellectual-property policies. However, PAYC is presently listed on Mintable. As PHAYC was listed on Rarible, the marketplace has presently blocked the series.
