About Mutant Ape Yacht Club NFT
The Mutant Ape Yacht Club non-fungibles are a collection of tokens released by the Bored Ape Yacht Club following the highly-popular BAYC NFT owned by Yuga Labs. In the description released by OpenSea, it states “The MUTANT APE YACHT CLUB is a collection of up to 20,000 Mutant Apes that can only be created by exposing an existing Bored Ape to a vial of MUTANT SERUM or by minting a Mutant Ape in the public sale.”
Many celebrities admitted to owning some of the tokens from the NFT space, including Paris Hilton, and The Tonight Show Host, Jimmy Fallon.

At present, there are many plans for the growth of not just the Mutant Ape NFT project but the whole ecosystem as well. As the project grows increasingly thanks to its community of owners and supporters, the developers can realize each of their goals. Their stated roadmap is revealed as follows:
