A copycat troupe of Bored Ape Projects has been popping up left, right and centre to make a mockery of NFTs. While the OG Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) apes are selling for astronomical amounts of money to celebrities such as Eminem and Justin Bieber, many ‘copycat’ projects are also trying to get in on the action.

The following are just some of the many making a mockery of the industry:

Starry Ape

Starry Ape Art Club is a collection of 10,000 apes inspired by famous artist Vincent van Gogh, the Bored Ape Yacht Club and “degens” all over the metaverse. The project is not affiliated either with BYAC or its creators, Yuga Labs.

The NFT Boom Not Likely to End Anytime Soon

Although some might think the NFT market is overheated and many more share intense hatred for the entire concept, there is no denying NFTs are dominating at the moment. In January, despite the massive pullback in the overall crypto market, the NFT market reached a trading volume of US$6 billion, a new all-time high.
