7 Things You Could Buy Instead Of A Bored Ape: Comparing The Hottest NFT To Tesla, Apple, DOGE, Bitcoin And More

One of the biggest stories of NFTs in 2021 was the rise of the valuation and community surrounding Bored Ape Yacht Club.

Here’s a look at how the valuation of Bored Apes has risen and what assets you could buy for the same price.

What Happened: Launched on April 23, 2021, Bored Ape Yacht Club is a collection of 10,000 NFTs that feature a range of traits and have grown to be one of the most popular NFTs ever and a popular NFT used by collectors and celebrities as their Twitter Inc TWTR profile picture.

Bored Apes launched with a mint price of 0.08 Ethereum ETH/USD, or around $220 at the time plus fees. The project sold out on May 1 and quickly gained steam among the NFT community.

Benzinga has written about Bored Apes several times and covered the popular NFT project on “The Roadmap” show.

The project had a floor price of 6.8 ETH back in July and passed the floor price of CryptoPunks in December.
