PureArts has unveiled its first high-end Bored Ape Yacht Club collectibles, created in collaboration with Bored Ape owners and with the support of BoredJobs. Pre-orders for the BAYC #1356 – Bored Space Ape 1/8 Scale statue and BAYC #778 – Bored Captain Ape 1/8 Scale statue opened Dec. 2 during Art Basel Miami at the OtherBlock event and also on Purearts.com. 

Officially licensed by the owners of Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs, PureArts displays the licensing capabilities that merge the physical and digital universe. Captain, officially licensed from BAYC#778 owner @friesframe, and Space, officially licensed from BAYC#1356 owner @boredspaceape, were voted on by the BAYC community to become the first high-end physical Bored Ape collectibles.  

"As an NFT Collector myself, it was important to have a different approach than our licensing deals with gaming or movie brands,” says Arnaud Perez, managing director, PureArts. “This project must be community driven and it’s for this reason that I quickly reached out to BoredJobs to explain my vision and my project. We are very excited by the opportunity to use PureArts’ skills to create an incredible line of collectibles with BAYC IP Holders." 

For the first time, Purearts will include an NFC chip embedded in the base, allowing the owner to connect their crypto-wallet and claim their unique digital collectible of their physical statue. Digital collectibles will have a range of rarity and will unlock future benefits. This innovative project conceptually links physical and digital collectibles, certifying the authenticity of the product and opening utilities for collectors.
