Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT sells for record $3.4M at Sotheby's

One of the rarest gold apes

Yesterday, an extremely rare Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT was sold at auction for a record $3.4 million.

Bored Ape #8817 is one of 10,000 unique apes in Bored Ape Yacht Club's NFT collection, created by Yuga Labs. On Tuesday, it sold at Sotheby’s Natively Digital 1.2: The Collectors auction for $3.4 million, breaking the record for the most expensive Bored Ape sale ever.

“It’s not often that you see a Bored Ape with gold fur come up for sale, and this is the first time Bored Ape Yacht Club #8817 has been made available since it was minted,” Sotheby’s explained. “Less than 1% of all Bored Apes have the gold fur trait, making it an NFT with historical significance.”
