Nearly a week ago, I published an article about a domain investor spending more than $500,000 USD worth of ETH on a Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) ape NFT. This afternoon, Andy Booth announced that he and his brother, James Booth, paid 400 ETH for a different BAYC NFT. This one is golden with red laser eyes and a boat captain’s hat.

According to Transaction Details page, 400 ETH is worth nearly $1,300,000 USD. Wow. Apparently, this is the most anyone has spent for a BAYC ape.
As someone who has never bought or sold a NFT, I feel a little boomerish saying this, but I am floored. I know Andy and James tend to be big risk big reward domain investors, but that’s a lot of loot. Best of luck to them and to others who are buying and selling NFTs.
Update (September 6, 2021):
Booth brothers just sold this ape for nearly $3 million USD:
