Following the success of the main Bored Ape Yacht Club series, Yuga Labs released an updated mutant version which became an instant NFT success. As Mutant Apes gained more notoriety, becoming a new digital status symbol, brands and companies saw new opportunities to expand the IP into other business sectors.
