NFT: “Mecha Apes”, worthy successors of Bored Apes (BAYC) may be out soon

News hardware NFT: “Mecha Apes”, worthy successors of Bored Apes (BAYC) may be out soon

Although the NFT sector is not in top form, the major collections continue to be talked about. In this case, Yuga Labs, the studio behind the famous Bored Apes, was recently the subject of a potential leak. According to this leak, the studio behind the most popular collections may be back with a new NFT series titled Mecha Apes.

The Mecha Apes, a collection that looks like Bored Apes

While the price of Bored Apes and other NFT collections has been widely split due to the backdrop of falling cryptocurrencies, fans of virtual collections are waiting for something new.

To revive the NFT frenzy, many are hoping for announcements from the biggest players in the industry like Yuga Labs. The studio that holds the largest collections in terms of capitalization is in particular the origin of the Bored Apes – jpegs of monkeys that are worth a small fortune.

According to Protos media, Yuga Labs plans to release a new collection of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) later this year. The least we can say is that the new collection does not appear to be revolutionary given its potential title: Mecha Apes.

In fact, the collection called Mecha Apes, should resume the studio’s favorite animal from the successful collection: Bored Ape Yacht Club. So we imagine that these new characters in NFT will take on the form of robotic monkeys. To launch this new NFT series, Yuga Labs could raise $ 50 million.

For the moment, we have few tangible elements about the collection as the announcement is based on a leak. The Protos media allegedly seized a confidential document revealing the new Yuga Labs project.

A collection already denied by the Yuga laboratories

With recent hacks affecting many of its collections, Yuga Labs is trying to keep a low profile these days. However, this new leak forced one of the co-founders to react very succinctly:

Some don’t give up, hoping to see a new collection of Mecha Apes within the next few months, even after this announcement they consider unofficial.

One thing is certain, is that for the moment the Yuga labs seem more concerned about the Ethereum cryptocurrency update and its impact on non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

Furthermore, it seems unlikely that a new collection will see the light before the arrival of their metaverse. In fact, the studio is currently developing its own metaverse: Otherside. Therefore, the workforce of Yuga Labs currently seems to be focused on the various consumer demos and on integrating the collections already made in this 3D virtual world.

However, if the rumor about the release of a new Yuga Labs collection turns out to be true, then the entire NFT ecosystem could benefit from it. In fact, the studio’s collections have already proven their worth before. For example, the virtual textures of the Otherside metaverse had overloaded the Ethereum network due to the craze around collecting NFTs.
