Kyle ‘Mongraal’ Jackson, an esports competitor, turned down two generous offers for his Bored Ape ‘Dookey Dash’ key NFT and has made a sale to businessman Adam Weitsman.

Adam Weitsman purchased the NFT for 1,000 ETH ~($1.62 million). It is a significant discount from the seller’s original asking price of 3,333 ETH—an eye-watering $5.39 million.

Mongraal ‘Thrilled’ on the NFT Sale

With regard to the sale, Mongraal noted, “Super nice guy [Adam Weitsman] and thrilled the sale went through with him.”

Mongraal officially rejected UpDAO’s bid for 690 ETH or $1.1 million for the Golden Key earlier this week. Jackson tweeted that he would accept the offer if UpDAO doubled the bid.

Another offer from Memeland came in at 999 WETH. Memeland is a web3 venture studio from the 9GAG team. It had been the highest bidder at the time before Mongraal let it go to Weitsman

BeInCrypto has previously reported that the Memeland-based 9GAG social media network has been stockpiling expensive Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFTs.

Memeland bought eight rare-hat Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFTs on Feb. 6, 2023 for almost 800 ETH. The sum spent on the shopping extravaganza was 796.87 ETH or roughly $1.2 million at the time of press.

‘Dookey Dash’ Toad Mode Unveiled

Mongraal also stated, “A special thank you to Yuga Labs for hosting an incredible competition. I look forward to competing in future events.” He committed that he would settle the entire royalty.

Yuga Labs reportedly charges a 5% royalty on the sale, which comes to 50 ETH. Yuga Labs has made it clear several times that the NFT ecosystem has to respect creator royalties.

The Bored Ape parent has previously blocked marketplaces that failed to honor this. In 2022, the platform’s royalty collection from BAYC and other top NFTs was said to have surpassed $107.8 million.

That said, the skill-based mint game ‘Dookey Dash’ is getting ready for season 2.

BAYC recently introduced Toad Mode, a momentary Dookey Dash adventure. Users require a Sewer Pass to play the game. According to the official description, Sewer Passes could only be claimed by BAYC and MAYC holders.

It noted, “If you didn’t have a BAYC or MAYC NFT, you couldn’t claim a Sewer Pass, but you could acquire one on the secondary market or access one through warm wallet delegation.”
