The “Bored Ape” series of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) has raised around $285 million worth of cryptocurrency by selling tokens that represent land in a virtual world game. Reuters has reported that the land is actually a building.
Last year, the US-based start-up, Yuga Labs, created the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs, blockchain-based tokens representing a set of 10,000 computer-generated cartoon apes.
In another development, MahaDAO, a decentralised autonomous organisation (DAO), has been listed on India’s digital asset exchange, CoinDCX. “With the alarming rise of inflation in recent years, MahaDAO offers an innovative and revolutionary alternative to currencies struck down by inflation,” the company has said.
MahaDAO’s listing on CoinDCX will see the project’s native governance token (MAHA) getting listed with the Rs. pair (MAHA/INR). While ARTH is an inflation-proof stablecoin, MAHA is the backbone of the project. MahaDAO is a basic feature of the DAO ecosystem. Anyone and everyone who is a MAHA token holder can govern MahaDAO.
