The non-fungible token market has seen its share of ups and downs over the last year and a half, with Bored Ape Yacht Club one of the brightest spots. As the cryptocurrency market tumbles and floor prices of NFT collections drop, here’s a look at how bad things have gotten in the last six weeks.
What Happened: The floor price of Bored Ape Yacht Club hit 153.58 Ethereum ETH/USD on April 30. The rise coincided with the launch of Otherdeed for Otherside, a NFT collection from Bored Ape parent Yuga Labs.
Every holder of a Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT got a free claim for an Otherdeed for Otherside NFT with a claim date of April 30 through May 22.
The floor price of Bored Ape Yacht Club started dropping after the claim as some owners claimed their NFT and then sold their Bored Ape.
Since the high on April 30, the floor price of Bored Ape Yacht Club has fallen. In Ethereum terms, the floor price is currently hitting levels last seen in March. With the floor price falling and the price of Ethereum also dropping significantly, this marks the lowest price a Bored Ape has been worth in U.S. dollars since 2021.
