The Art of NFT Business – This Week In News March 21st 2022



Welcome to The Art of NFT Business. In this episode hosts Florian Valot and Jonathan Goodman discuss the weeks news including President Zelensky Legalizes Crypto. Ukraine formally legalizes crypto after receiving over $100 million in support from the crypto community since Russia invaded. The nation is even preparing to launch an NFT collection about the Russian invasion.

ApeCoin Launches for Bored Ape Ethereum NFT Holders. The token was not created by Yuga Labs, the developer of BAYC. It was created by ApeCoin DAO in an effort to show decentralization. However, Yuga Labs is adopting the ApeCoin “as the primary token for all new products and services” including its blockchain game coming later this year and Benji Bananas, a blockchain game by Animoca Brands is also implementing ApeCoin. BAYC holders got about 10,000 $APE per NFT but Mutant Ape Yacht Club holders only received 2,000 APE per NFT. As of Friday the 10,000 $APE were worth about $140,000, and just 9 days ago you could have bought an ape for just under $200k. So you would have gotten 70% of your money back without selling your ape. There were some losers though. Holders of the Bored Ape Kennel Club (BAKC) didn’t receive any coins unless they were paired with a BAYC or MAYC. If you owned the Bored Ape Kennel Club alone you got nothing!
