BAPE Announces (B)APETAVERSE NFT Project

Mobile 33

BAPE has announced a forthcoming NFT project known as the (B)APETAVERSE, which promises to bring fans of the brand access to exclusive content "in a world of limitless possibilities". The announcement arrived with a website that depicts a 3D rendered model of the classic BAPE logo obscured by shadows.

According to the (B)APETAVERSE Instagram the collection will consist of 10,000 unique NFTs, typical of generative projects. We're unsure of exactly how the project will take shape exactly, but it's probably safe to assume that the NFTs will be variations on the render highlighted on the website.

The move comes as no surprise as industry giants like Nike and Adidas have already made moves to enter the metaverse with acquisitions of RTFKT Studios and a Bored Ape, respectively. BAPE joins a growing roster of streetwear mainstays to enter the NFT space, and undoubtedly will not be the last. As the brand that helped to popularize the ape iconography that has now become synonymous with non-fungible tokens, it only seems right that BAPE should get it on the landscape.

Stay tuned to see how the project unfolds, and in the meantime check out (B)APETAVERSE's Discord here.
