Yuga Labs Kicks Off the First Community Council for BAYC and MAYC
To empower one of its biggest NFT communities, Yuga Labs has launched the first community-led BAYC/ MAYC council.
Yuga Labs further empowers the BAYC/ MAYC community
Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) creator Yuga Labs recently announced the first community-led council for BAYC and MAYC. The council itself consists of seven longstanding community members with a proven track record in supporting the collection.
Notably, the exciting effort will help the community to grow and thrive in one of the biggest NFT ecosystems. As the official blog says, "Bored Ape Yacht Club wouldn't be where it is today without its community." With that, elected members now play a vital role in shaping the future of BAYC alongside Yuga Labs.
The seven council members are Bored Room Ventures co-founder Josh Ong, early BAYC adopter a.k.a. artist Sera, The Miami Ape founder Laura Rod, BAYC newsletter writer 0xEthan, crypto OG 0xWave, Hong Kong ape Negi, and BAYC community event organizer Peter Fang.
How does the BAYC/ MAYC Council work?
At the moment, the council will focus on receiving direct feedback from the community. That shouldn't be difficult since many of these council members are already proactive leaders themselves.
By listening to the community feedback, the BAYC council will work closely with Yuga Labs in bringing community-led ideas to life. It can be anything from commercial projects to meetups and charitable giving. In terms of autonomy, council members are free to bring their skill sets and ideas to the table. Yuga, in turn, will help transform the best ideas into reality.
Of course, with an ever-growing ecosystem, the company is looking to create something similar to the BAYC council for other Yuga NFT projects. To list, they are CryptoPunks, Meebits, and the Otherside RPG.
With Yuga announcing its first Chief Gaming Officer, many speculate that the Otherside community might get its own council next. After all, gaming is now one of the company's biggest priorities, according to Yuga Labs CEO Nicole Muniz.
