Coinbase is launching a Bored Apes-themed film trilogy


Popular Cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase is producing a three-part film series with the popular non-fungible token (NFT) project Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC).

The first of three installments for the series of animated short films, titled “The Degen Trilogy,” will premiere at NFT.NYC in June.

Coinbase launched an open call for all Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT holders hoping they will be cast in an upcoming film series.

Ape owners selected in the casting process will get a licensing fee of $10,000 in apecoin or bitcoin.

The first episode will be released at the NFT.NYC conference, which takes place between June 20 and 23.

After their release, the films will be “wallet-gated” on the Coinbase website, with users having to create a Coinbase wallet before being able to view them.
