APE Token Tied to Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs Sinks 80% in Opening Hours

2022-03-18 14:51:10


ApeCoin, the token linked to the popular Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFT (non-fungible token) collection, is down about 80% in its first two hours of trading.


The token was airdropped to Bored Ape NFT owners this morning after being announced yesterday as a part of a larger ApeDAO campaign, but holders quickly selling the coin have sent its price plummeting.


The token has fallen from its highest price of $39.40 to a now stable $8.90, trading for as low as $6.48, according to CoinMarketCap. The total market cap for the token now sits at a whopping $2.4 billion, making it currently the 49th-largest coin.


If earlier airdrops are any indication, however, that ranking isn’t likely to stick.


Owners of Bored Ape NFTs were airdropped 10,000 ApeCoins a piece, with 15% of the total supply being available to claim this morning.


Of the remaining supply, 47% will be sent to the Ape DAO treasury, 16% to parent company Yuga Labs, 8% to the BAYC founders and 14% to launch contributors.


The floor price for a Bored Ape NFT briefly fell to 79 ETH (roughly $220,000) following the airdrop but has since rebounded to 90 ETH (roughly $250,000).
