Yuga Labs has acquired Beeple’s 10KTF game. Beeple will be employed as a consultant for the company after the acquisition is complete.
Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) developer Yuga Labs has purchased 10KTF, the NFT game created by digital artist Michael Winkelmann (better known as Beeple).
In the browser-based NFT game 10KTF, users can equip their heroes with custom load-outs and items to finish tasks. APE money, badges, resources, and free airdrops are all rewards for completing missions.
Additionally, the game plans to feature a wide variety of accessories that an avatar may wear in the future; popular items from the game’s collection include pairs of socks and backpacks. Fans have been left to speculate about which Metaverse platform will contain these things up until this point. Following the announcement of the acquisition, some fans have started to imagine that 10KTF products would eventually be wearable in the Otherside metaverse ecosystem of Yuga Labs, which has not yet been launched.
Images of the 10KTF hero, Wagmi-San, consuming an elixir that had previously been seen in the Otherside trailer were shown in a thread that was posted on the 10KTF official Twitter channel on November 14. “Welcome to the Otherside, Wagmi-San,” reads the final post in the thread, which is a retweet from the Otherside’s channel.
The business said that Beeple will be employed as a consultant for Yuga Labs after the acquisition is complete.
The nonfungible pioneers at Larval Labs revealed in March that YugaLabs would be purchasing both the Cryptopunks and Meebits NFT collections. Despite not joining Yuga as part of the agreement, Larval Labs co-founders Matt Hall and John Watkinson stated at the time that they “identified in [Yuga Labs] the skill set and knowledge in this field that we were missing.”
