Okay, before I dive into what I’m going to write about I just have to say, if you told me I would have a blog post with this headline six months ago I say – you’ve lost your mind! Today, this blog post makes sense to a lot of people, but if you’re someone that doesn’t get it, don’t worry, I’ll explain.
First, let’s start with the Bored Ape Yacht Club, what I think most people will agree is one of the NFT projects that has generated the most buzz with Bored Apes (myself included 🙋♂️) taking over Twitter. For many of us that “aped in” early, watching the Bored Ape Twitterverse grow has been a fascinating experience.
For me, it’s made Twitter a lot more positive and fun, and I think a lot of people in BAYC are seeing the same. A real community has formed amongst Bored Ape Yacht Club members and many of us have added more apes to our collection because one really just doesn’t feel like enough does it?
While there are plenty of other popular NFT projects like Meebits from Larvalabs or Ghxsts, Bored Apes have taken center stage and helped a lot of people get into NFTs and gain instant acceptance into a pretty awesome community.
So what does all this ape talk have to do with Arabian Camels?
Well, a new NFT project called Arabian Camels (ArabianCamels.io) launched and they decided to give away 2,000 of their NFTs to existing members of the Bored Ape Yacht Club. And what the heck is the idea behind the Arabian Camel project you ask? Well, it’s kinda complex so you might want to just read their FAQ below:
I claimed my camel and I’m pretty darn proud of him, you can take a look below or click on him to view the little guy on OpenSea:
What I think is so brilliant about the Arabian Camels project is they found a way to get a ton of buzz – giving away a free NFT to members of arguably the most talked-about NFT project out there. Now my Twitter feed is still full of Bored Apes, but a lot of them are talking about Arabian Camels, so…it’s working.
The buzz worked on me and today I actually bought a second camel, and I might go in for a third. It’s a fun project with a pretty cool mission and tons of buzz. As for how this all pans out and if these NFTs end up being worth anything long term, your guess is as good as mine. I do think it’s safe to say that NFTs are here to stay and the projects that are popular today just might be the projects people wish they could have been a part of ten years ago.
I just hope everyone putting money into NFT projects like this is only spending money they can afford to lose because these could all go to zero, and if they do, I’m okay with that because its been a blast, and it’s only getting more fun, at least for me 🕺
Do you own an ape? How about a camel? Think it’s all stupid? Either way, I want to hear from you, comment and let your voice be heard!
