After warning other NFT collectors to not purchase his “stolen apes,” Becerra announced on October 31st, 2021, via a tweet that Yuga Labs had received the issue and deemed the apes that were stolen as “worthless.” Becerra’s tweet (shown below) received 404 likes over the course of four days.
In response to Becerra’s tweet, multiple Twitter users replied to his apes being stolen. Most Twitter users did not have sympathy for him, being skeptical of NFTs in general. Most tweets and memes made in response to the hack revolved again around the NFT meme concepts of Screenshotting NFTS and “Right Click, Save As.” For instance, Twitter user @AsherLangton replied saying “Stole it back for you,” and attached a screenshot of one of the apes. This reply (shown below, left) received roughly 2,200 likes over the course of four days.

Jungle Freaks, a collection of artwork by former Hustler artist George Trosley, was derailed after people pointed to his problematic previous work and suggested a fictional NFT world in which zombie generals wearing Nazi-esque outfits shoot gorillas might be less innocuous than first thought.
“I was disgusted and disappointed to hear [of Lil Baby Ape Club], but not shocked given that we’ve seen overt racism and discrimination in other NFT projects — Jungle Freaks being the most recent,” says Kristina Flynn, an NFT collector, consultant, and community leader spearheading diversity in the NFT world.
It’s an issue borne out of the lack of representation across the wider NFT community, believes Flynn. “The space is dominated by white, cis, straight men,” she asserts, citing reports that a minuscule proportion of the sector are women.

As the episode starts, the Chimpanzee beneficiaries of Sandy’s undersea treedome are paying a visit to see what progress she has made with her inventions, but Sandy doesn’t think any of her work will satisfy the chimps, and if they don’t like what she’s invented, Sandy could lose her funding, forcing her to leave Bikini Bottom.

Ten per cent visible at the top, with all the scaffolding built out beneath.”
Gargamel and Goner brought on two other friends, programmers who go by the names No Sass and Emperor Tomato Ketchup, to handle the necessary blockchain coding. To execute the project’s graphics, they hired professional illustrators, which accounted for most of their upfront costs (around forty thousand dollars, according to the group).
As with many avatar clubs, the cartoon ape features were then fed into an algorithmic program that randomly generates thousands of images with unique combinations of bodies, heads, hats, and clothes, like digital dress-up dolls. Certain traits—rainbow fur, laser eyes, togas—show up only rarely, making apes that sport those looks more desirable, and thus more valuable.

Se você está copiando imagens de macacos estilizados no Twitter e não está fazendo uso comercial dos arquivos, não é necessário acionar advogados.
Apesar disso, a linha legislativa da tecnologia deve ficar cada vez mais cinza, já que grandes empresas estão embarcando nessa onda. A mudança já tomou início em alguns estados norte-americanos, encontrando impulso na entrada de empresas e grandes nomes da indústria cultural no nicho, como a própria Marvel, e celebridades como o integrante da banda Linkin Park, Mike Shinoda.

O cofundador da Wise&Trust e autor do best-seller O futuro do dinheiro, Rudá Pellini, compartilhou sua perspectiva sobre o caso em uma entrevista ao TecMundo: “Na prática, cada NFT é um item único digital. É como a Monalisa, você pode ter uma cópia, mas só existe uma original. A diferença é que um NFT é digitalmente programado, registrado através de código computacional”, ele contextualiza.
Quanto ao caráter legal da tecnologia, o especialista avalia que processar usuários da internet por replicar imagens ligadas aos tokens não fungíveis não faz sentido.
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.
I don’t understand Russian culture or what works there,” he says.
The original developers’ excuse seems inadequate: Russia has a vibrant racist and nationalist far-right community. “In the mid-1990s, a diverse right-wing movement came on the scene in cities such as Moscow, Voronezh, Riazan, Tiumen, Rostov-on-Don, and St. Petersburg,” says Eugene M. Avrutin, author of the upcoming book Racism in Modern Russia: From the Romanovs to Putin.
“By 2007, Russia was home to some 60,000 to 65,000 skinheads.”
Russia, he adds, struggles with “white power extremists who organize training camps and knife-fighting sessions, with the explicit goal of preserving the white Russian nation from foreigners and dark-skinned minorities.”
Even setting aside the issues around hateful imagery, the original developers themselves seemingly aren’t blameless.
