A no.6462 Bored Ape NFT was sold for 200 USDC by mistake.
Brief introduction: The Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) is arguably the most influential NFT project by far. The BAYC NFT collection was technically created by Yuga Labs. It is a collection of 10,000 NFT Apes, each with completely unique traits. By purchasing an Ape, you will get exclusive access to future collections and other perks as a member of BAYC. Part of BAYC's success nowadays has been its focus on creating a universe and exclusive club behind the NFTs, maintaining the hype and a relatively high floor price as a result.
Why it matters:
On Sunday, a BAYC holder sold his Ape NFT for 200 USDC by mistake, meaning that the seller lost 99.9% below the floor price
However, speculators think the former owner was trying to evade taxes
This is not the first time a BAYC holder has sold an Ape at an unreasonable low price. Last December, the owner of Ape #3457 made a costly mistake by selling the NFT for $3,000 instead of $300,000
