0xApes are the OG legacy NFT collection on ETH L1


Created Jan 2022: Each Ape is unique with no duplicates and built using refined Ape DNA

0xApes ere minted as a distinct 'Expansion Pack' for the Web3 Apeverse

A standalone collection of 10,000 distinctive and collectable Apes that live on the Ethereum Blockchain


0xApes are #'s 10,000 - 19,999

Deconstructed > Reconstructed >  Refined

Importantly there are no duplicates of the original BAYC Assortment

All 0x backgrounds are ‘Banana Yellow’ Hex #FFD42F which does not feature on BAYC


0xApes are driving uniqueness through refinement. No two Apes are the same


You can still become a part of our journey to create a distinctive and standalone collection of primates
with an 0xApe that will be entirely unique and entirely yours!

[0xApes is a community built expansion project and is NOT affiliated with BAYC, MAYC, or Yuga Labs]


Deconstruct / Reconstruct / Refine

The original team deconstructed 160 property layers [DNA] from the BAYC collection and subsequently reconstructed a collection ensuring each 0xApe is unique [refined] from apes in both the BAYC and 0xApes collections


Many traits were redrawn & corrected to ensure a seamless blend across the collection once minted

Visually Distinct

As well as totally unique [refined] trait combinations, naming and asset numbering, 0xApes are visually distinct from BAYC NFTs opting for a single and highly vibrant Banana yellow colorway instead of one of eight pastel shades in the original BAYC collection. 0xApes have never claimed, or implied they are BAYC assets


0xApes Under New Management!

As of Feb 2024 the 0xApes project is under new management

M0R84N, a BAYC NFT holder at the time, who first aped into the project in Feb 2022 spending 14 ETH on the most rare Ape #17535 has acquired 0xApes via one of his corporate entities; 0xAPES Ltd

The original suggestion was a redraw of the traits used to create the original NFTs but the community were very vocal against this idea. With the 0xApes sitting across almost 3,500 wallets and having been openly traded for over two years no such changes could be forced. Equally the idea of a DAO was dismissed

Then the 0xApes project minted the 0x memecoin on base with a view to expanding beyond the original NFTs. 0x tokens were minted at nil value and launched with no presale or ICO, all LQ funds added by M0R84N on behalf of 0xApes Ltd. Sadly only 70 0xApes holders claimed and only 12 joined the subsequent 'Party' the base memecoin traders came and quickly went. The chart tells the rest of the story

The yellow 0xApes NFTs will simply remain on the blockchain as the legacy NFT collection from early 2022



Legal Notice: To re-confirm this project has no affiliation, implied or otherwise, with BAYC, MAYC, or Yuga Labs. It remains a community built spin off project, first minted over 2 years ago in January 2022, with a collection of assets that may resemble the original Bored Apes but all bear a unique combination of refined traits, naming, numbering and sport a very distinct yellow background. 0xApes Ltd was incorporated in 2024 some two years after the mint, and neither it, nor M0R84N, were members of the original 0xApes team or advisors. The new owners have not received any funding from the original mint, past royalties or funds from any other related matters. The 0xApes project remains verified and tradable on Opensea without challenge. The original 0xApes project creators have reassured the new owner in writing that no notices have been received from BAYC or Yuga Labs or their lawyers in respect of any proposed copyright issues. Furthermore, the 0xApes project has never defamed the BAYC project or its founders and it is reasonably believed there is a harmonious relationship between the two projects which have co-existed for over two years. This acquisition has taken place in good faith, with ongoing best intentions. As an individual M0R84N relies on the ongoing protection awarded to him via Limited company and Common Law.
