The Bored Ape Yacht Club, a real goose on the NFT scene in recent weeks, unveils the identity of two of the four founding members.
The internet media Buzzfeed has just confirmed having discovered the identity of half of the creators of the NFT Bored Ape Yacht Club collection, one of the most famous (if not LA) of the moment!
Bored Ape Yacht Club: An Ecosystem Acclaimed By The Stars!
Created last April by Yuga Labs, the NFT Bored Aped Yacht Club collection can already claim to have generated $2 billion in NFT sales. Model 8817 with golden fur is currently the piece that has sold for the highest amount: 3.4 million dollars. In all, the collection of humanized monkeys has 10,000 different pieces.
It is a real success story in just a few months and has won over many stars such as basketball players Shaquille O’Neal and Stephen Curry, footballer Neymar, French actor Omar Sy and Californian rapper Snoop Dogg. Eminem, another well-known American rapper, also believes in this project.
Because the system wanted by the Bored Ape Yacht Club is not simply focused on the possession of NFT. These give the right to certain advantages and offers. Offers that will expand over time. Belonging to a closed club is also one of the probable explanations for the explosion of the NFT Bored Ape Yacht Club collection.
The Identity Of 2 Of The Founders Revealed!
It is thanks to the Buzzfeed site that we now know the identity of 2 of the 4 founding members of the BAYC. Before these revelations, the project leaders were all known by a pseudonym. There was Gargamel, Gordon Goner, and two engineers, No Sass and Emperor Tomato Ketchup.
Thanks to the analysis of the commercial files of the project, accessible publicly, the media Buzzfeed specifies to have found who hides behind the first two pseudonyms.
Thus, Gargamel would be called Greg Solano (not to be confused with Solana ) and Gordon Goner would be called Wylie Aronow and would be from Florida. The two men remain unknown to the general public for the time being. The mystery persists on the identity of the two other carriers of the project.
