Bored Apes Are Taking Over The Tron NFT Market; 75% Sold In Less Than 24 Hours

The TRON network is being taken over by fans of the Bored Ape Yacht Club. Over 75% of Tron-exclusive Apes have already been found their owners just 24 hours after the event began.



Palmar Labs’ Bored Ape Yacht Club Tron appears to be the most popular NFT on the TRON network right now. A series of 10,000 eye-catching Apes are included in this fresh new collection, which follows the immensely successful Ethereum-based initiative.

The team behind this collection had to postpone the event, originally scheduled for September 5, to allow Ape fans to mint on the go via mobile devices. However, that does not appear to have deterred the NFT community from flooding back into the primates once they are reopened. Only 2,500 Apes remain as of this writing, with more than 75% already minted.

Tpunks, the first NFT collection featured on TRON, only sold 600 of the 10,000 pieces available in the first 24 hours. While it took them four months to sell them all, TRON founder Justin Sun’s purchase of a Joker Tpunk for $10.5 million last week has sparked a surge in marketplace activity. Tronmeebits, the second project to launch on this blockchain, sold 20,000 digital art pieces in 36 hours. Despite this, none of these projects has been able to develop a marketplace.

TRON’s BAYCTron collection is one of the first five NFT projects to launch. It will be the second collection to have its own marketplace, according to team representatives.

“We never set out to be the first to launch. We want it to get it right the first time and, more significantly, for everyone to be able to mint on the move with their mobile devices. We’re also working nonstop to build our marketplace, which will allow the Bored Ape community to purchase, trade, and bid on their favorite assets without any hassle,” adds Caroline Matusso, BAYCTron’s CMO.

TRC721 coins are TRC721 tokens; a non-fungible token standard recently introduced on Justin Sun’s blockchain. While there are no clues on what types of Apes will be included in this collection, the developers have stated that 15 Apes would be dedicated solely to TRON.

According to their official website, the tokens are all minted at random and “programmatically created from 170+ possible qualities, including expression, hat, dress, and many others.” For a set 1,000 TRX (about $85), digital collectors can get their hands on a Tron-powered Bored Ape. Users can also manufacture numerous tokens at once, which is useful for building a whole troop.

Some prominent figures in the NFT space have already endorsed Bored Ape Yacht Club Tron. For example, Joshuwa Roomsburg, the CEO of ChainLeak and one of the world’s top crypto influencers, just purchased twelve BAYCT Apes.

In just a few days, the project attracted thousands of NFT collectors, gaining over 9,000 Twitter followers and hundreds on Telegram.

“The BAYCTron staff is extremely competent, and we recognize the need of protecting the secondary market value of our collection. As a result, we take our collaborations very seriously. While we can’t say much at this point, we’re looking at forming partnerships with big NFT curators,” Matusso said.

No one knows how long this fascinating minting race will last – it may be days, hours, or minutes. According to the corporation, “three exceedingly rare NFTs are still available for minting” at this time. With barely a fourth of the stock remaining, the odds of obtaining a valuable object are increasing by the minute – and collectors are not wasting time.

Shopify Expands Online Retailers’ NFT-Gated Options

Brands are able to increase the exclusivity of their shops thanks to the e-commerce platform.



The future of e-commerce, according to Shopify, is in NFTs.

As a new option for brands wishing to make their stores more exclusive, the online retail behemoth, which enables small businesses to construct customized e-commerce shops, is providing NFT-gated storefronts, Shopify announced on Wednesday.

In the Shopify introduction video, which includes a skating woman who passes through a pastel portal and transforms into a Doodles NFT, a voiceover urges viewers to “invite their communities into a world that acknowledges and rewards devotion.”

The video explains that token holders can access special shopping opportunities by connecting a cryptocurrency wallet, including early access to drops and limited collections as well as one-of-a-kind experiences and other surprises.

Only individuals with existing NFT collections are able to apply for early access to Shopify’s “gm” shop, which is a gated merchandise store and a play on the Crypto Twitter acronym for “good morning.”

However, those that haven’t received approval yet can still integrate NFT token-gating apps like Shopthru or Single into their Shopify sites.

Shopify announced that it has already collaborated with the Adam Bomb Squad, Doodles, World of Women, Invisible Friends, Superplastic, Stapleverse, and Cool Cats NFT collections to develop token-gated shops as part of its token-gated business launch.

Shopify is introducing “IRL” token-gating in brick-and-mortar stores in addition to online token-gating, which restricts access to certain merchandise to authorized NFT holders exclusively.

Why is this important? The future of Web3 commerce will focus on exclusivity, for one thing. NFTs, which are distinctive blockchain tokens that denote ownership over an asset, are increasingly employed as membership cards, tickets to events, and “keys” to open benefits, despite the fact that they are frequently oversimplified as digital art or “jpgs.”

Additionally, this isn’t Shopify’s first venture into NFTs: The business has been involved with Web3 since last year, when it announced the launch of NFT sales on its platform. Brands can mine and sell NFTs on Shopify to clients using the Ethereum, Polygon, Solana, or Flow platforms.

OpenSea, beware—Uniswap is pushing into NFTs

The NFT aggregation platform Genie is being purchased by Uniswap Labs, the organization that created the Ethereum-based decentralized exchange Uniswap.



In a Bankless interview on Tuesday, Uniswap founder and CEO Hayden Adams said, “We’re attempting to transfer what we brought to the ERC-20 market to the NFT sector.”

You can buy NFTs—individual blockchain tokens that represent ownership—on a variety of different marketplaces, such as OpenSea, LooksRare, or Coinbase NFT. However, few allow consumers to buy many things at once, and none provide aggregation tools that let traders view listings on competing marketplaces.

According to Uniswap Labs on Twitter, “We see NFTs as another form of value in the burgeoning digital economy, and it’s a no-brainer for us to integrate them.”

The NFT aggregator Gem, which also enables customers to acquire numerous NFTs in a single transaction, was purchased by OpenSea just two months prior to the announcement of its acquisition by Genie. OpenSea intends to incorporate NFT aggregation functions into its primary platform, just like Uniswap.

A new tab dedicated to NFTs will be added to Uniswap’s main website later this year as part of the company’s push into NFTs, according to a statement from the company. Additionally, NFTs will be included in its developers’ APIs and widgets.

Uniswap Labs intends to airdrop an unspecified quantity of the stablecoin USDC to Genie’s early backers as a way to commemorate its acquisition. By April 15th, USDC will be given to everybody who had utilized the platform at least once or owned a Genie Genesis NFT. (The business had earlier tweeted that Genie Gem owners were eligible for the airdrop.)

Uniswap entered the NFT market for the first time in 2019 with Unisocks, an NFT that granted holders access to a real pair of socks.

The largest NFT market, OpenSea, has a floor price for Unisocks of 13 ETH (about $15,300) at the time of writing.
