An altcoin created by the founders of the popular Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) non-fungible token (NFT) collection is soaring in anticipation of its related metaverse going live this weekend.

Yuga Labs’ ApeCoin (APE) initially surged by 50% last Wednesday amid rumors that token holders would receive airdropped plots of metaverse land.

It was the latest rally since the token debuted on March 17th and NFT collectors have flocked to the new community-focused project.

Now, APE is rising again as Yuga Labs prepares to release its new massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) called Otherside.

The official Otherside Twitter account confirms April 30th as the official launch date.

The adventure begins. Otherside. 4/30, 12pm ET.

Hong Kong-based gaming company Animoca Brands, which focuses heavily on NFTs and the metaverse, also tweeted about its possible involvement in the forthcoming project, although specific details remain scarce.

“Animoca Brands is excited to announce that we’ll be adopting ApeCoin for the secret project we’ve been developing with Bored Ape Yacht Club.”

The floor price of a BAYC NFT jumped from 102 Ethereum (ETH) last month to 138.5 ETH today. With Ethereum currently trading for $3,014, BAYC membership comes at a minimum price tag of $417,439.

ApeCoin is up 45.3% from a seven-day low of $13.20 to $19.19 at time of writing.

APE hit an all-time high of $19.40 just hours ago before correcting slightly.
