All about the latest Rolling Stone x BAYC NFTs
Sales of Rolling Stone x BAYC prints and NFT began on June 22nd. At that time, two physical fingerprints appeared BAYC store. Meanwhile, the auction for two 1/1 NFTs went live on OpenSea. Significantly, both prints and NFT auctions were valued at APEcoin.
The two artworks focus on BAYC’s unofficial monkey mascot, Curtis. The first print shows Curtis lying in a hammock on the Bored Ape Clubhouse dock. Another shows Curtis a mutant monkey flying from a volcano covered in slime on a motorcycle.
The sale of graphics lasted four hours, while the auction was open for three days. Needless to say, the auction was a huge success. By way of illustration, the MAYC Curtis NFT sold for APE 22,696,969 ($ 103,460.97 at the time of purchase), while the BAYC Curtis NFT sold for APE 42,106.05 ($ 191,934.56 at the time of purchase).
This is now the second time that Rolling Stone has teamed up with web3 juggernaut which is BAYC. And given how well both collaborations went, it probably won’t be the last.
