Infiltrating the Ape Mafia
At the very beginnings of BAYC, the first Ape Mafia was established on May 4th, 2021. The records reveal the first mention of admissions to the syndicate took place on this very day.
Behind the growing crime ring was a stoic leader known as the ApeFather, or Ape 6056, who attentively managed the mafia enterprise and its dirty business.
Early on, the ApeFather searched for a rightful heir to the Scimmia family jewel, a cherished generational treasure. Dexxad, a trusted associate, was the most ideal inheritor who would protect the jewel that once belonged to the Scimmia Family Vault.
Scimmia Family Jewel
On May 8th 2021, Scimmia Family Jewelers opened for business marking the inception of the mafia’s merchanting ventures.
Several other ring leaders were entrusted with powers to superintend the business. These Capos had close ties to the ApeFather and carried out his most important tasks.
Meet the Capos
NGBxBen, Herb Castillo, Mmwalk, M3, Holderofbags, PumaJaw, Argurius, 0xFenrir, Bread, and Accumul8 constitute the circle of Capos assigned by the Ape 6056.
Jewelers, traders and well-dressed associates make up the growing ranks of the notorious family.
The mafia members are identifiable by the clean mafia ring they proudly don to indicate their allegiance to the mob.
As a tight-knit family, they live by a strict ethos and vow loyalty to each other and their collective values. They fully understand the cost of betrayal within the family: traitors are awarded no sympathy; simply escorted to the back of the hideout to be properly dealt with.
The Mafia Token
After proper initiation, apes are presented with a highly respected mafia token, the definitive symbol of membership. The token was minted on the 20th of June, 2021 through Rarible and can be purchased here: https://opensea.io/collection/ape-mafia.
Ape Mafia Website
The Ape Mafia Website serves as the hub of the nefarious network and all its dealings. Access is permitted through the membership token, once acquired. Upon entering, you will find links to featured Family members, a classy Spotify playlist, the historical blog, Discord, Digi-Physical Merch Store (coming soon), and an access link to the Hideout (coming soon).
The Ape Mafia token, most importantly, grants members access to the Sandbox residency where the ApeFather and his associates conduct their day-to-day business. It will soon be open to all members who will benefit from exclusive networking opportunities with other members.
In addition to exclusive access to the Mafia Hideout, the token will also serve as a ticket to the “digi-physical merch” shop where members may browse for proper mafia attire. Members hold style in high esteem and are expected to set an example in both real-world and metaverse fashion.
It is no mystery that Ape 6056 is a connoisseur of fine art pieces. For this reason, Ape Mafia members can expect to be introduced to a world of premier artistry where knowledge and discussion of high-quality works will take place across the exclusive network.
The Ape Mafia extends its gratitude to anyone willing to join, and you will be treated as family with the utmost respect. Inclusivity and respect are values that all members are expected to hold in the highest regard. When you join the Mafia, you will join a family of equals. We hope to see you soon.
