BAYC’s Past Cinematic Struggles
Interestingly, Coinbase made plans to launch a film trilogy centered around BAYC NFTs in April last year — however, the attempt to produce such a series was put on the backburner.
The film, ‘The Degen Trilogy‘, was set to feature engaging and interactive elements of BAYC to bring “billions” of people into the Web3 world. Coinbase was to be the entertainment arm responsible for the project’s production, whereas BAYC community members had the all-important role of crowdfunding. However, Coinbase’s cinematic attempt failed due to being met with criticism and given challenging conditions at the time, including regulatory complications with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission and layoffs of 1,100 employees in June 2022, following the troubling crypto market crash in May. The initial first section of the storyline also failed to meet expectations due to its target audience finding it “confusing”.
These conditions led to Coinbase discontinuing the two remaining parts of the movie trilogy in December 2022, focusing on other expressive projects while reevaluating its film-centric initiative.
Nonetheless, despite these previous setbacks and criticisms, a BAYC is finally ready to hit the silver screen! So, prepare to lose yourself in a world where pixels and aspirations merge as Bored Ape #2758 imprints its indisputable mark on the box. A cinematic journey unlike any other is in the making.
