Realistic or not, here’s APE’s marketcap in BTC’s terms
BAYC to the moon?
Furthermore, it was discovered that BAYC and related assets made up 50% of the overall Ethereum [ETH] NFT volume in the past week. This indicated a high level of interest and demand for BAYC and related assets, which was reflected in the growing profitability of BAYC holders.
Additionally, the TVL collected by staking BAYC also increased, according to data provided by Dune Analytics. This was a positive sign for the network’s growth and adoption. However, the APY generated by staking this asset declined materially, which could be a cause for concern for investors.
Moreover, sales for BAYC also surged with a 140% increase over the last 24 hours, according to Dapp Radar. This is a positive sign for the NFT collection’s future growth and profitability.
The average price for Mutant Ape Yacht Club [MAYC] also grew along with the number of holders holding the NFT collection. Its price grew by 14.30% in the last month, according to NFTGO.
