What is Mutant Ape Yacht Club NFT?
Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC) is Yuga Labs' follow-up to BAYC and consists of 10,000 mutated and deformed monkeys, each with a unique set of physical imperfections such as rotting, growths or blurry snouts. As already mentioned, MAYC monkeys are created using 3 different sera: M1, M2 and M3. Serum holders received NFT wallets. With the M3, you can create a monkey that will have rarer features than the original. And M2 and M1 create monkeys with the same qualities as before.
At the time of writing, the cheapest monkey MAYC costs 22 ETH, while Mutant Ape Yacht Club has a capitalization of $1,102,135,000. Yuga Labs says the Mutant Ape Yacht Club is the last "entry ticket" to the community. After all, now they are actively developing the ecosystem around the Bored Ape Yacht Club, which I will now tell you about.
What makes Mutant Ape Yacht Club NFTs unique?
MAYC is an additional expansion of Yuga Labs' first legendary BAYC collection. Half of this collection was auctioned off, while the rest were created for existing owners of Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs who put their monkey up on a "bottle" of "mutant serum". Every mutant monkey is the same original boring monkey, but a mutated version of it.
The first 10,000 mutant monkeys raised $96 million within an hour of launch. The remaining 10,000 mutants were produced from already existing boring monkeys under the influence of vials.There are three types of sera in total: M1, M2, M3
The rarest sera are M3, there are only 8 of them. The most common in turn are M1, there are 7500 of them. After the sale of the first copies, BAYC holders were able to mine Mutant Apes for free, taking into account the gas fee.
Any monkey can be experimented with with any of the proposed sera M1, M2 or M3. The NFT retains its original data with uniquely mutated variations.
What changes after using the vial? First, each mutation is original and differs from monkey to monkey. Your NFT may have bulging eyes, crooked teeth, deformed or infected skin. Other unique attributes may include a nasty green goo, torn clothes, a creature that wears like a hat, and others.
The elixir can only be used once after which it is burned. At the same time, you are left with both the original boring monkey and the mutated one. In addition, Mutant Ape Yacht Club became the first NFT collection to reward brand new NFT members in their community.
