What is the Megapont Ape Club Bitcoin NFT

Megapont Ape Club #59 is the rarest in the set. It is called the “Almost Dead” variant; graphic flames from within the ape’s skull.

Which Crash Punks Bitcoin NFT is the Dopest IHMO?

For me, it has to be #2296 the Ghost Rider Ape. Does it look similar to #59? Yes. But it’s simply much more bad-assier. He’s got a full inferno of flames and they’re shooting out from under his neck and through this eyes. Those graphics look like he just jumped out of a Sega Genesis. So yeah, it’s like number 59, only way better.

How Far Along Are They on Their Roadmap?

In my research, I could not find a specific visual roadmap like we’ve seen from many other projects that I’ve covered so far. However, there is a lot going on with Megapont.

They have teamed up with ALEX on Stacks to develop their MEGA utility token.

Megapont has released sideline NFT projects that integrate into their ecosystem. In January, they dropped a 10,000 NFT free mint on their community, Wasteland Apes, a collaboration with Project Indigo.

Megapont Robot Factory was released in late December and their MegaKongs NFT collection (minted on Ethereum) was released in early 2022. These NFT’s can move from Ethereum to Stacks and back using the team’s Banana Bridge which moves assets between the two blockchains, similar to StacksBridge. The difference is that, when these NFT’s migrate back and forth between the two ecosystems, their appearance is significantly altered:

They are building the Megapont Metropolis in the Sandbox with a projected completion date in Q3 of 2022.

And, to be honest, the Metropolis looks pretty dope.

There’s a lot to unpack here. I’ve got a few questions, myself. Like, who is stopping that giant robot from smashing the three-story building with the translucent octopus on top? How did a whole deer make it’s way up to the 3rd floor of said octopus building? And, is anyone there concerned about the massive orange tentacled creature making its way into the bottom right corner of the frame? Even with those questions left unanswered, Megapont Metropolis looks intricate, alive and engaging.

You’ve almost made it to the end, here’s a reminder that you can support my site out by checking out OKCoin, the preferred exchange of the Stacks ecosystem. You can even earn $50 of Bitcoin as a bonus by using this link. And what’s better than free money? Free Bitcoin!

What Utility Does This Project Have?

With the upcoming integration of Megapont Metropolis into Sandbox along with their MEGA utility token, plenty.

The Megapont Ape Club Bitcoin NFT Community

There are currently 1,057 owners of the NFT’s in this collection. The community has a Twitter page with over 10,300 followers. Their Discord has 4,762 members and their main website is at https://megapont.com.

How Much Do Megapont Ape Club NFT’s Cost Today?

As of July 14th, 2022, this collection has a current floor price of 1790 STX. With STX currently at $0.36, purchasing one floor NFT will cost approximately $644.40 USD.

The Future for this NFT Collection

It looks really bright. Lots of community engagement on their social media. The team has succeeded in rolling out collections on Stacks and on Ethereum. They are positioned within the Sandbox metaverse and they are by far the most popular collection in terms of sales volume on Byzantion. They’ve built a machine and everyone in the Stacks ecosystem should be excited for what this team has accomplished so far and what they will do next

Are Megapont Ape Club NFT’s a Good Investment?

Stacks, the underlying blockchain of Megapont Ape Club Bitcoin NFT

While none of this is to be construed as financial advice (please see the website disclaimer), anyone who reads this blog or follows my Twitter already knows that I am very bullish on the outlook for Stacks cryptocurrency, the underlying blockchain for Megapont Ape Club Bitcoin NFT’s.

NFT’s on Stacks are absolutely exploding since their debut in 2021. In addition to their recent listing on Coinbase, the Stacks ecosystem is best represented on OKCoin, where you can get exposure to StacksArkadiko Financeand CityCoins like MiamiCoin and NYCCoin. Stacks is the protocol that brings d’Apps, NFT’s and Ethereum-like utility to Bitcoin. I am a believer that any exposure to Stacks comes with tremendous future upside potential. So, while everyone should do their own research before investing in any NFT or cryptocurrency, I think the future of most NFT projects on Stacks hold considerable promise.
