We look forward to officially welcoming our new Director later this week.” Jerry C. Craig, CEO of OWUV On Friday, One World Universe bought 10 Apocalyptic Apes NFTs based on speculation that the minor tiered NFTs, which are a derivative of the famous Bored Ape Yacht Club and Mutant Apes that go for big money on the OpenSea.io marketplace, would increase in value as if these apes were a more affordable option for ape enthusiasts. This investment has quickly paid off as the floor price has doubled already in the last few days. The company stated that profit taking with these NFTs will be reinvested in additional LAND purchases in the Metaverse game ‘the Sandbox’ or other up-and-coming NFT collections.
