Yuga Labs Starts Its First Community Council For BAYC and MAYC

Yuga Labs has just announced it is starting its first community council for BAYC and MAYC. The community council consists of seven long-standing community members that have a proven track record of supporting the collection, and other NFT holders, and have been trusted advisors to Yuga Labs.

BAYC, meet your new council members!

About the BAYC and MAYC Council

According to the official blog, the BAYC Council was formed with the intention of representing the community at large. Plus, it serves as a channel through which community members can express their ideas. The seven council members are Josh Ong, Sera, Laura Rod, 0xEthan, 0xWave, Negi and Peter Fang.

The BAYC council will initially be focused on receiving direct feedback from the community. Council members will be elevating the community by bringing their various skill sets to the table. Furthermore, the council members will be able to nominate three community projects a month to receive a startup grant from Yuga Labs. BAYC and MAYC communities will then vote on which project gets a 10 ETH (~$15K) grant each month.

According to Yuga Labs, plans are in place to potentially create something similar to the BAYC council for other Yuga projects. These include popular NFT communities like CryptoPunks, Otherside and Meebits.

About Yuga Labs

Founded in February 2021, Yuga Labs is a company best known for creating Bored Ape Yacht Club. From then on, the company went from strength to strength. It launched spinoffs of BAYC, namely, Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC) and Bored Ape Kennel Club (BAKC). Additionally, it gained enough prominence in the NFT community to acquire CryptoPunks and Meebits, and launch Otherside. The launch of the BAYC council signifies Yuga Labs’ growing influence, not only in the Web3 space, but pop culture at large.

In the Twitter thread announcing the NFT collection, he also mentions that after listening to each of the episodes, all listeners will gain a dedicated NFT. This NFT carries over to a special podcast-based website. On connecting their wallet to this website and verifying that they hold the NFT, listeners will then be presented with an audio puzzle relating to that particular episode. NFT holders will get a chance to answer certain quiz questions pertaining to the episodes. The correct answers will be revealed once the submission period is over.

Listeners who guess the correct answers will see their NFTs reflect their scores! The dynamically designed NFTs update themselves accordingly to showcase the correct answers. Furthermore, they will earn extra points based on how quickly they answered the questions. Moreover, they can also check their ranks on a leaderboard for the same! Different levels on the leaderboard will reflect differently curated prizes. Users are also free to buy, sell, or trade their podcast NFTs at any time during the series.

“Each audio puzzle will be a collaboration between a team of professional puzzle makers and our partners at SALT. We’re excited about the intersection between storytelling and token-gated gamification and look forward to pioneering this trend with the Writer’s Room!.” stated Jenkins, on the Twitter thread.
