The Mutant Ape Yacht Club NFT collection was launched after Bored Ape Yacht Club quickly became one of the most prominent and popular NFT collections. To show their appreciation for their Bored Ape community, the Yuga Labs team delivered on the first phase of their project roadmap with the launch of the Mutant Ape Yacht Club NFT collection.

The NFT collection has a market cap of $167 million and a floor price of $8,589.
