He had previously traded N.B.A. Top Shots, basketball-game highlight videos in N.F.T. form, but this felt more consequential. “It was fear of missing out,” he told me. “I was watching a lot of people whose opinions I valued on N.B.A. Top Shots change their picture to an ape.” Matt Galligan, the co-founder and C.E.O. of a messaging network for crypto called XMTP, who had managed to buy four Bored Apes during the launch, told me, “It became a status symbol of sorts, kind of like wearing a fancy watch or rare sneakers.”
Bored Ape Yacht Club’s initial batch of N.F.T.s brought in more than two million dollars. The collection has since seen almost a hundred million dollars in trading, with the cheapest apes often going for almost fourteen thousand dollars. In recent months, the project has inspired a wave of similar clubs and a mania for N.F.T. avatars among crypto-enthusiasts.

Each owner of the NFT will also be given an authentication certificate showing the segment of the mural on which the artwork appears.
Owners of this NFT will also be given the opportunity toown another unique Banksy work of art, through a random assignment to one of the owners who can choose whether to receive the physical artwork or the NFT depicting it.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the NFT will be donated to The Gorilla Organization and Developing Health and Independence (DHI), a charity that supports disadvantaged people and those living on the margins of society in turning their lives around.
However, some have raised doubts about the legitimacy of this operation, given that it isBanksy‘s work and it is safe to assume that the artist should have issued the NFT, or commissioned someone to do so.

Gargamel and Goner were familiar with CryptoPunks, a batch of ten thousand pixelated figures, which became the blue-chip art of the N.F.T. market after their release, by a company called LarvaLabs, in 2017. CryptoPunks, which now can sell for as much as two hundred thousand dollars apiece, weren’t originally the basis for a social avatar club, but some collectors (including Jay-Z) use them as avatars—flaunting one as your profile pic, or “P.F.P.,” was the ultimate symbol of digital cachet. “It’s like having a Harvard degree in the N.F.T. space,” Austin, who owns two, said. Gargamel and Goner also noticed the success of Hashmasks, an artistic venture that sold 16,384 N.F.T.
images in January for a total of more than sixteen million dollars. Both of those projects were closed systems; their developers didn’t promise any expansion beyond the initial, limited release.

Solana Monkey Business (SMB) has recently sold an NFT for a record $2 million USD, equivalent to 13027 SOL. The NFT in question, Solana Monkey #1355 is now the most expensive Solana-based NFT.
The Block Crypto reported that it was only three weeks ago that the first Solana-based NFT sold for over $1 million USD, further providing proof that the Ethereum blockchain may be losing its dominance in the cryptocurrency world. Solana Monkey #1355 is seen as the most rare NFT amongst the collection and features a monkey in a skeleton body wearing a bejeweled crown.
According to Solanalysis, Solana’s monkeys now go for an average of 456 SOL.

The code here is an extension of the simple contract in PatrickAlphaC nft-mix tutorial. Give this a read for more information and especially if you are interested in developing a contract which can generate random NFTs.
I have also found the OpenZeppelin Contracts Wizard to be very useful. This wizard assumes you are using OpenZeppelin = 4.x contracts while the contract here is based on OpenZepplin 3.x due to compatibility issues with Brownie.

An increasing number of accounts that he followed were changing their avatars to cartoons of apes: apes sporting sunglasses or bunny ears, apes with leopard-patterned or rainbow fur, apes smoking cigars or shooting laser beams from their eyes. Many wore blasé expressions or toothy grimaces. Some had cigarettes dangling from their mouths, or the red eyes of the deeply stoned. Amid the Twitter melee, the apes were chatting among themselves, chill and supportive.
Art is nothing without people, and now art reaches them without looking into their color, gender, or background.
A while ago, Sofia Garcia, Artxcode founder, made a notable comment about the NFT environment on Forbes:
NFTs enable everyone to see how much collectors pay for their artwork and let the market choose rather than allow art dealers to leave artists in the dust. There is a change in the guard in who is able to collect high quality works.
So, if Kylie Jenner were to be interested in an NFT, how would different members of the community proceed?

Gargamel and Goner sought an idea they could keep growing over time. “We were seeing the opportunities to make something with a larger story arc,” Gargamel said.
One early idea that the duo considered was CryptoCuties, a set of N.F.T. “girlfriends,” but it struck them as too pandering—not to mention creepy. (The male-dominated crypto world can sometimes feel like a frat house; the creators of one recent avatar project drew criticism, and later apologized, for featuring female figures with darkened eyes and duct-taped mouths.) Another concept was a shared digital canvas: anyone who bought in could draw on it. But that seemed liable to be treated like a bathroom wall at a dive bar. “The first thing someone’s going to draw up there is a dick,” Gargamel said. The image of an online dive bar stuck with the pair, though, and from there a science-fictional story line took shape.
That’s what I tell my parents.”
Each avatar club is a strange combination of gated online community, stock-shareholding group, and art-appreciation society. When one ape (or cat or pill or alien) is bought for a high price, the perceived value of all ten thousand authentic N.F.T.s in the set rises, the same way a painting fetching a record price at auction might increase the value of an artist’s entire œuvre. When a buyer makes his Twitter avatar an image from a new N.F.T.
club, it’s a sign of allegiance, and also a signal to other buyers in the club to follow him on social media. (“I changed my picture to the ape and I got hundreds of Twitter followers the first day,” Swenson said.) The center of most clubs is Discord, the real-time chat app. Bored Ape Yacht Club’s Discord server has more than thirteen thousand members—fans as well as N.F.T.
