Appreciating in value by a whopping 160% since its last sale, Bored Ape #9361 can be only be described as a hodgepodge of traits. Algorithmically generated, the result here is a trippy, unshaven cyborg that, for some reason, is blowing bubbles.
The unshaven bubbles traits is particularly rare here, shared by only 0.65% of the collection. The token was purchased by collector Formosa who now has more than 750 NFTs in their wallet, including Azukis, mutant apes, and Cryptopunks before transferring it on to a vault.
