Yuga Labs is a company that deals with the marketing and development of NFTs and cryptocurrencies. The company was created in 2021. It began selling Bored Ape NFTs in April 2021 with the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC), and since then, it has produced further NFTs and Metaverse-based solutions. The sales of Bored Ape NFTs began with the BAYC. The name Yuga was taken from a video game character that can transform its enemies into two-dimensional works of art. The history of people in the bitcoin community referring to themselves as apes inspired the incorporation of apes into the Bored Ape Yacht Club.
When the founders of the company were asked what drew them to the concept of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), they responded that they were gamers who played games such as World of Warcraft, Everquest, and Star Wars Galaxies and that NFTs and the Metaverse appeared to be a new era of gaming experiences. In early 2022, around one year after the business’s formation, it had become the most valuable NFT project in terms of market cap.
