As if it wasn't already exciting enough to be in the Bored Ape Yacht Club, the team has put together what many think could be one of the most exciting and ambitious moves in the NFT space - the catch, nobody knows exactly what it is yet.
Last week I shared a clue about BAYC Mutants based on an interesting discovery I made when looking at an image from the early days of Bored Apes back in May of this year. I won't write more about the clue I found in this article since it's all just a hunch, instead I thought I'd share three things we do know about the upcoming Bored Ape Yacht Club Mutants launch.
So let's dive in.
First - the Mutants are coming this Saturday, this was confirmed by Bored Ape Yacht Club on their Twitter account in this tweet which is now pinned to their profile:
As for exactly when on Saturday the Mutants are coming we don't know. I've been looking on the BAYC Discord every few hours but still no update in announcements. I think many of us are just going to clear our calendars this Saturday.
Second - this is the introduction of breeding. Bored Ape Yacht Club makes this clear on their website, here's their description:
The fact that the second sentence says that "we cook up new ways to ape with our friends" also hints at a way that apes can interact together. Maybe that's just another way of phrasing breeding, or it could refer to some kind of game we can all play together with our apes.
Third - there have been rumors going around that you needs two apes, or an ape and a dog but BAYC has confirmed - you only need one ape to participate in breeding. Gargamel posted the following in the BAYC Discord confirming this:
"Our mutant apes will not work exactly like traditional breeding. You will only need 1 ape to breed. We're not releasing any more info on it right now. But rest assured we're working on it around the clock."

Also, technically there are five things we know about Mutants which a couple people on Twitter pinged me about. So the fourth thing is - they are doing something for dog and ape owners (thanks @cryptocaseynft) and the other is probably the most important:
They are insane
Thanks to @rastinukas for the reminder on that one, this post wouldn't be complete without it!
I can't wait until Saturday, it's going to be one exciting day, and there's a good chance the next 24-hours will be exciting as well as the BAYC crew announces more about Mutants. Let's gooooooooo!
