Following the successful drop of BAYC and MAYC, Bored Ape Kennel Club NFT came to the fore. It’s a limited edition special collection exclusive for previous owners from the site. Riding from the popularity of BAYC, BAKC will position these cute non-fungible dogs to create additional hype in the blockchain sector.
But does it have what it takes and is it worth saving in your wallet? Let’s find out more by scrolling below to hear more about our take on Yuga Labs’ latest collection drop.
About Bored Ape Kennel Club NFT
The BAKC non-fungible collection is the brainchild of BAYC creators, Yuga Labs. The avatars of these cute dogs are described from the site as follows:
“It gets lonely in the swamp sometimes. That’s why every ape should have a four-legged companion. To curl up at your feet. To bring you a beer. To fire a missile launcher at that bastard Jimmy the Monkey.
That’s why we’ve started the Bored Ape Kennel Club, and why we’re offering up a dog NFT for adoption to every single member of the BAYC – for free (you only pay gas).”
Bored Ape Kennel Club NFT Roadmap
There is no clear specific roadmap for this non-fungibles collection. However, similar to earlier collection drops like BAYC and MAYC, you can expect the developers to add special value to these tokens that ape owners from previous collections may avail in the future.
