Bored Ape Yacht Club Plunges By 60% Last Month

 

While Bored Ape Yacht Club appears to be unfazed for several months now in the face of the crypto crash, the month of May tells a different storyline.

Bored Ape Yacht Club, a blue-chip NFT, appeared to have dipped in value, as evidenced in May when NFTs dropped in average sales price. May has been a challenging month for NFTs and crypto alike. BAYC has managed to end it with a sour trading price of $152,658.

BAYC Average Sales, Value Down 60%

Although BAYC sales are comparably higher than other NFTs like Otherdeed, Art Blocks, NBA Top Shot, and even Mutant Ape Yacht Club, BAYC values have crashed by 60% since May 1 with an average trading price of $382,894.

A hike in unique buyers increased from 475 to 591 in April, but the average sales have shed tremendously since.

Meanwhile, the APE token has lost 66% of its value from a May opening trading price of $20.02 to close at $6.76.

Why Own A Bored Ape Yacht Club

BAYC is an NFT collection owned by many celebrities and influencers like Stephen Curry, Eminem, Justin Bieber, and Shaquille O’Neal. It’s an overnight sensation that has also triggered high prices for the collection. Owning a BAYC is a status symbol that you belong to the elite circle.

To be relevant, it’s a must to own the most popular and royal NFT. It gives the owner that cool status, but the actual value of BAYC is exclusive membership access. It’s a digital club that provides member-only access and privileges such as the following:

  • Bathroom Access
  • Discord Access
  • Added NFTs
  • Access to ApeCoin

It’s BAYC that unlocks the potential of NFTs to enter the mainstream and be a part of the elite and more giant circle.

Bored Ape and other blue-chip and premiere NFTs have been in a depressive state and down by more than 50% last month. BAYC has been robust and unassailable for several months despite the crypto market retreat, but the values are sliding now.

One of the apparent reasons for the decline is that Ethereum has also been down by 33% for the month following the Luna and UST stablecoin crashes. OpenSea trading volume has also suffered and has plunged by 40% for the past month.

The decline in the BAYC value is also largely attributed to the massive crypto crash that resulted in the waning of investor interest in all things NFT.
