    Interesting because it took me a few minutes to google ‘bayc nazi’ to see this was talked about back in January with many experts dismissing these links you’ve spent time getting familiar with

    you’re more educated on 4chan, fascism, and libertarianism than me though

    Like it's clearly signaling being turbo racists to racist nerds, it's too esoteric to be super influential compared to like tucker being a white supremacist every night on fox, but denial in the space makes me more curious.

    Seems like it would be real easy to post a coercive defense.

    Maybe if you’re casually sitting on your computer ready to talk about the link to facism and crypto

    the image comparison is one of the examples I was referring to. I’ll find it when I’m on my laptop.

    User thought I was shilling him an NFT the last time said topic was discussed this much in the crypto thread

    I was just offering to let him borrow my gutter dog with btc hat but let’s not revisit closed doors one of you might steal it again

    Nobody here really knows/cares about bored apes other than Seth green got his back finally

    You’re trying too hard again. Weak is you posting something 6 months old and trying to spin every post into something political and controversial.

    I don’t need to watch the one hour video to go in circles with you. You’ll still keep rambling on about the same predicable shit. Lol at wasting an hour about a topic or brand I’m not interested in.

    He constantly comes in here trying to make some far right political connection

    the other day he made a weird entrance to post the suicide hotline

    forgive me if I’m assuming this guy is trolling and being a piece of shit and that’s insane based on previous interactions instead of watching this video that was just posted

    There is no reason to own a bored ape. It's merely a tech speculation product to gobble up excess capital in the economy to the benefit of the rich.

    I guess some ppl where interested in being the first in a new market.

    Some bought because celebs, athletes, and influencers got in.

    Seth is using it for some tv show
    Others have used it to promote their brand, business, music, etc.

    some are just trying to flip and make money

    But saying it’s just speculation is inaccurate. Some of the reasons and use cases are also juvenile.

    That dumb little video has section outlining the fraud Yuga labs commits with their celebrity endorsements. They buy an ape, gift it a celebrity, make the celeb sign an NDA saying they cant tell anyone they didn't actually buy the ape themselves. Just basic manipulation and fraud nbd.

    Right now the only people posting #BURNBAYC on Twitter are the people behind the video and the same crew behind the articles that were written in January. The guys who started CryptoPhunks and have shilled multiple projects and been incredibly dramatic and toxic along the way.

    And their twitter pfps are from a bored ape derivative project --- that they've shilled/promoted. One of the many reasons I dismissed the video early on

    Very hypocritical if this is all true. But if anyone in this space has followed Ryder you know this is a troll.

    Dear drive by poster,

    It's called having a conversation. The poster who shared this video is notorious for trying to inject political nonsense into this thread. The video that I've watched so far is ridiculous. You spend a lot of time showing up in this thread for having no clue what you're talking about.

    I guess I do know more about the project than I led on. Sometimes I lie dblplay1212 :roll: just like this video

    Only about a few hundred apes during the week and, it’s worth noting, that their owners hadn’t yet seen their NFTs and how they looked. On April 30th, the reveal happened, and once people saw the art, the collection spread like wildfire, and all apes were sold a day later at a price of 0.08ETH each. 30 apes were saved for the team members, giveaways, and promotions.

    Spending a lot of time going hard in the paint tonight to argue this. Are you familiar with what set off the reveal? Can you tell us what triggered the reveal to happen, please? It wasn't scheduled for April 30th. It was written in the smart contract to reveal based on a certain number of pre-sales, which someone has recorded on their twitch stream. It was completely random and written in the code based on # of sales, not a date.
