Bored Ape Yacht Club's Sewer Pass mint nabs $1.3 million one hour after launch

Quick Take

  • Bored Ape Yacht Club began its new Sewer Pass mint at 12:30 p.m. ET on Jan. 18 after a day’s delay. 
  • Sewer Pass brought in over $1.3 million in trading volume one hour after the mint launch. 

Bored Ape Yacht Club's experimental mint for Sewer Pass attracted more than $1.3 million worth of ETH in trading volume just one hour after the mint began.

The floor price for the new NFT project sits at 1.475 ETH ($2,272), and comes one day after it was delayed for a day. 

Every Bored Ape or Mutant Ape Yacht Club holder can mint a Sewer Pass between today and Feb. 8. Holding a Sewer Pass NFT lets users access an experimental mint called Dookey Dash, a skill-based game in which players can collect items worth differing points. Those with the highest score from Dookey Dash will get a key to be used later on in the Bored Ape Yacht Club roadmap, while all other Sewer Pass holders can get access to an event called "The Summoning."
