Rumours Claim $50M Raise For Mecha Ape NFTs
Mid this week, leaked documents shared by the crypto media outlet Protos claimed that Yuga Labs intends to raise $50 million from the collection and unleash 100,000 digital land deeds in its metaverse venture, Otherside.
According to Protos, the creator of the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT collection, planned to secure $50 million to launch the brand new non-fungible token collection dubbed “Mecha Apes” before the end of the year.
Yuga Labs Refutes Mecha Apes NFTs Claims
The Bored Ape Yacht Club creator has always been selective and sensitive about its projects. In that case, Greg Solano, the co-founder of Yuga Labs, has dismissed rumours claiming Mecha Apes NFT launch. Solano has described those reports as fake news.
