This marked a 73% plunge in sales from May. In May, BAKC’s sales volume was roughly $15.24 million.

New to Bored Ape Kennel Club? 

Bored Ape Kennel Club was launched in June 2021 as an offshoot of the highly successful NFT collection, the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC). Unlike BAYC which went on sale on several NFT marketplaces, BAKC was not available for sale.

Instead, it was offered to holders of Bored Apes. Although there are 10,000 Bored Apes out there, 400 holders did not participate in the adoption of the Bored Ape Kennel Club. As a result, the total number of BAKC NFTs out there stands at 9,602. 

The developer behind the project is Yuga Labs. This is the same company behind BAYC and MAYC that acquired CryptoPunks from Larva Labs in March. 

Why the crash in sales? 

Looking at the decrease in the number of unique buyers in June, the decline in sales volume led to the dwindling transaction counts of BAKC, with 347 unique buyers, and 479 transactions. 

In relation to Jan, when BAKC tested an all-time high in monthly sales, there were 1,623 unique buyers and 2,564 transactions. 

By the end of Jan, Bored Ape Kennel Club sales were in the region of $61.52 million.

After recording less than $10 million for the first time since Oct ($5.61 million), BAKC reached new lows in June, which was a $57.42 million fall in sales from Jan.

Aside from sales volume, the average sale value also took a massive hit. There was a 64% dip in the average sale value from $23,993.51 in May to $8,552.02 in June.
