What is MAYC?  The MUTANT APE YACHT CLUB is a collection of up to 20,000 Mutant Apes that can only be created by exposing an existing Bored Ape to a vial of MUTANT SERUM or by minting a Mutant Ape in the public sale.

The MAYC is a way to reward our ape holders with an entirely new NFT—a “mutant” version of their ape—while also allowing newcomers into the BAYC ecosystem at a lower tier of membership.

Mutants represent the final tier of membership; everything going forward occurs with the intention of accruing utility and member’s-only benefits to Bored Apes foremost, but also Mutants, and to a lesser extent, Bored Apes with BAKC companions.

Distribution & Pricing A total of 10,000 Mutant Serums have been airdropped to all BAYC token holders. 10,000 Mutant Apes will be available to mint in a public Dutch Auction. The price to mint a Mutant will start 3 ETH, and gradually reduce to .01 ETH over the course of 9 hours.

Mutation Arcade The BAYC's founder, Curtis, inherited the land that the club sits on years ago. And when the idea came to him to create a secret club for apes, the little plot in the swamp made sense. 

On the grounds was a crumbling shed (now repurposed into the outhouse), where some old fishing gear, tools, and mostly junk was stored. But amid all the scrap was something else: THE MUTANT APE. A busted arcade machine.
