The Lonely Ape Dating Club, a dating service that only guys seem to want, was created earlier this year. The software, developed by Year 4000 Labs, was designed to connect “Bored Ape” Non-Fungible Token (NFT) owners with others who had invested extensively in JPGs of cartoon apes. The app was to contain a few dubious features, while ensuring that possible partners were also interested in cartoon apes and/or bitcoins. This includes the ability to narrow down search results based on the value of NFTs and bitcoin stored in possible dates’ wallets, as if Tinder matches could be filtered based on their wage or the amount of their mortgage.
“Send bitcoin recommendations to potential matches to get their attention.” The Lonely Ape Dating Club said in a press release that they “are a ragtag team of hackers and NFT collectors interested in how we can integrate crypto and Web3 with the dating space” and that they “are a ragtag team of hackers and NFT collectors interested in how we can integrate crypto and Web3 with the dating space.” What is the project’s issue? It may surprise you to find that, despite the community’s notion that bored apes are a true women magnet; few women were interested in the dating site.
“Unfortunately, owing to a massively unequal ratio of males to women who signed up for our waitlist, we have chosen to put the BAYC dating app on hold indefinitely,” the dating service said in an update. The project has now been discontinued, according to the website, which tells monkey JPG owners seeking for other monkey JPG owners. In other words, you’ve lost all of your dates.
Christie’s, the British auction firm founded in 1776 and known for selling paintings by Picasso and Leonardo da Vinci, held their first digital-only art sale on March 11, 2021. The artwork by Beeple, titled “Everydays: The First 5000 Days,” sold for $69,346,250, making it the most expensive piece of digital art in history. The first tweet by Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey is also up for auction, with the top price presently at $2.5 million. These tweets, as well as Beeple’s artwork, are known as NFTs. The abbreviation NFT stands for “non-fungible token.” When something is fungible, it may be swapped out for other like ones. You may, for example, trade one cent for another of the same value and end up with practically the same thing.
When something is non-fungible, such as a picture or a one-of-a-kind trading card, it is unique and has no replaceable equivalent. An NFT can be anything digital, from a photograph to music to a cat tweet. Digital files, on the other hand, are quickly replicated and viewed by a large number of people, and they aren’t actual physical items that you can display in your home or in a gallery. As a result, the NFT functions more as a proof of ownership for the digital object than as anything directly related to the digital item.
