Ethereum co-founder Taylor Gerring recently purchased a Bored Ape Mega Mutant Serum NFT for 888 ETH ($3,6 million) from a seller who received it for free by being a part of the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) community.
The new NFT owner’s announcement that he will be livestreaming the serum drinking event made a serious splash within the most famous yacht club in the world, as the BAYC community got excited to witness the new Mega Mutant reveal.
Mega Mutant Ape reveal
Gerring purchased the M3 Serum NFT from a seller who received it for free–by being part of the BAYC community.
In August, Yuga Labs airdropped BAYC owners a Mutant Serum–an NFT that enables the original Bored Apes to mutate into a Mutant Ape.
Mutant Serums belong to an NFT collection dubbed Bored Ape Chemistry Club and come in three different tiers–M1, M2, and M3–with M3 being the rarest of them all.
Following the concept, each of 10,000 Bored Apes can receive only one serum hit, opening a spot for 10,000 Mutant Apes.
Gerring announced he will livestream the Mega Mutant Ape reveal on Twitter, and caused quite a stir among the BAYC community.
Attention all Apes, Mutants and Doggos, IT’S HAPPENING!!! Join us Tuesday night at 9PM ET to watch @TaylorGerring chug the M3 live on Twitch (video) & Spaces (audio) with @tropoFarmer, @Herb_Castillo and friends! Come for throwbacks and chugs! 🧪🦍https://t.co/3uLduiAKXf
