We knew Madonna for her singing talent, perhaps less so for her love for NFT! In fact, the queen of pop is a huge NFT fan. She particularly appreciates the NFTs from the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) collection.
Bored monkey NFT collection
The Bored Ape Yacht Club collection includes 10,000 NFT. NFTs have been “designed” or “drawn” to represent each “boring dirty punk” monkey face.. Why a monkey-themed collection? The official reason is that the creators of this collection called each other “monkeys”. In addition, the monkey is an animal that lives well and is highly valued. Another reason could be that the creators simply drew inspiration from another great and successful NFT collection, CryptoPunks.
Each NFT is unique for two reasons. First, as is usually the case with NFTs, each is assigned a token that it has unique identifier. This token is stored on the Ethereum blockchain and guarantees ownership of the NFT in question. So every NFT has a monkey head. unique in features. The “monkeys” are customized based on the background color, their fur, earrings, eyes, fur, hat, mouth, etc. There are a total of 170 attributes in the NFT Bored Ape Yacht Club collection.
