The Bored Ape Yacht Club is obviously not just a place for monkey business. After working with Old Navy on a T-shirt for both men and women, BAYC is now on Casetify’s new line of clothing and accessories. There is merchandise with the Bored Apes and the characters from the NFT project that goes with it, Mutant Ape Yacht Club.
Wes Ng, CEO and co-founder of Casetify, said in a news release that “the NFT field is constantly evolving” and that “at Casetify, we’re thrilled to be able to turn world-class artwork into premium accessories that people can enjoy, with benefits shared with the community’s alpha group.”
Casetify licensed almost $2 million in NFTs from Bored and Mutant Ape for their “To the Moon” capsule. The capsule also uses NFT terms like “LFG” and “WAGMI” (We are going to make it). Clothing and accessories from the collection, which is a tribute to what seems to be an endless number of NFTs, have the faces of 41 characters from each project printed on them.
Several tech items, like phone covers and laptop skins, have the Apes and the phrase “To the Moon” on them. Fans of NFT can enjoy the collection on any device they want, since the bright pieces work with iPhones, iPads, Macbooks, and Samsung products.
There are also skateboards, like the ones fans can “ape in” using a wall mount and certain sweatshirts. Even though the licensed gear and accessories are considered rare collectibles, it’s important to remember that they don’t have a digital equivalent or NFT. But there is only a limited amount of Ape-themed stuff, so get it while you still can.
RUN AMOK — On August 25, people from all over the world will be able to shop the whole “To the Moon” collection on Casetify’s website. Pieces from the capsule sell for $52 to $282, making it some of the least expensive Bored and Mutant Ape merchandise you can buy (the Apes themselves have sold for as much as $3.4 million). If you like the metaverse, you won’t want to miss this.
