Home/ News / World/  The Golden Fur Bored Ape NFT is valued at $1.5 million

A golden fur ape was recently purchased for 777 Eth, or $1,478,000 USD, by Vis.Eth, a member of the Bored Ape Yacht Club, a deal that has attracted attention due to the prevailing market conditions.

This sale, however, shows that NFT backers like Vis.Eth think Bored Ape Yacht Club, or BAYC, has potential even outside of the present bear market.
