The Genesis

2021

As the last bull market of 2021 raged on, a small group of collectors of both Rare Pepe and BAYC sensed that something was all too wrong in the space. Everyday a new project was claiming to be the next great thing. Yet all the commotion was always about the floor price. The NFT world had seemed to forget about the art. History was being lost, despite resurgences in small pockets of the metaverse. What happened to the Pepes?

The Arrival

March 5 2022

Through a paid mint priced at 0.05 ETH. With no whitelist and no bonding curve, the world saw 1,999 Rare Apepes arriving on the blockchain via this method. However, the world was in turmoil, the global crypto market faced a downturn and no new Rare Apepe arrived on the blockchain for months. The other 8,000 could not let anything get in their way of fulfilling their prophecy. They knew they had to do something...

The Rebellion

July 1 2022

The rebellion ensued. From ID 2000, the Rare Apepes broke free from the paid mint, turning into a free mint. The rebellion also saw the Rare Apepes break free from the 1:1 ID match with their BAYC counterparts.

The Explosion

July 2022

No one knew what was about to happen, people began to see the project's potential, the community involvement sparked organic growth that made the project able to navigate towards a direction that was beyond its own founders dreams. To become one of the biggest 'meme' brands in the NFT space and the community we’ve all grown to know and love.
