Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are taking the digital fashion landscape into a whole new level. One of the NFTs taking the burgeoning space by storm is Hape Prime NFT which dubs itself a fully 3D high-fashion Hapes project.
Since its launch on January 19th, 2022, the project has built popularity among NFT enthusiasts and Ape loyalists. The project’s laid-down and luxurious fashion sense has drawn admiration from several Ape collectors.
Ape-facing NFTs are no recent fad given the impressive job Yuga Labs’ Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFTs have done in the crypto space. If you are keen on jumping on a promising profile picture (PFP) Ape NFT, then Hapes should catch your attention.
We explore everything there is to know about the project.
About HAPE Prime
Hape Prime NFT is a collection of 8192 unique apes who are out to redefine the digital fashion landscape. The project’s team says that the PFP avatars are fully 3D and each Ape NFT is decked with luxurious and attention-grabbing attire.
The NFT project is created by a NFT-facing digital media company Digimental. Built around its community of Hape owners, the Hape NFT allows users to switch or change their apparel and general tweak their PFP appearance. The end goal is to rank in the ecosystem’s first-of-its-kind Hape Fashion Index which selects the best-dressed ape for the week.
The Hapes also features a Hapewalk Runway which allows owners to show off their collections and become a vocal voice or Hapefluencers. This community voice stands a chance to earn real-world rewards from the Hapes project.
The Hapes are based on the Ethereum protocol and each of its unique 8,192 tokens operate under the highly popular ERC-20 tokens.
The HAPE Prime back story reveals a lightning strike, massive enough to fracture the Ape Universe dated two million years ago. The lightning strike fractures and scatters Ape Universe, causing HAPE Primes to be thrown to different sections of the Universe. The Primal Hape must wait for the entire family to rejoin to build a more stylish and secure future together. The Hapes are beautiful and loved; despite their familiarity with one another, they are unique as well.
HAPE Prime was built on the Ethereum blockchain and developed by Matt Sypien, an art director working on an NFT endeavour to create 8k unique NFTs.
How Many HAPES Are Available For Purchase
The HAPE Prime collection consists of 8192 unique NFTs.
Each unique NFT can be minted on Ethereum. All of the NFTs feature a sentient Ape with distinct 90s hip hop fashion statements to buttress their character. Their fashion style is representative of next-generation trends and designs, unique to retro fashion enthusiasts.
Perks of Owning HAPES
A lot of benefits are in store for Hape NFT owners. For one, they get to easily display their high-fashioned Apes on their social media handles.
Another is the ability to change the Hape NFT’s wearables. Hapes can switch their attire with digital drops from the Hape Prime NFT team.
The most eye-catching and high-classed NFTs are then ranked in the Hape Fashion Index which selects the best-dressed Hape NFTs. Each Hape comes with a range of traits making them generically unique from the others.
In addition, we believe that owners would be treated to custom-designed merchs, new drops and other project-related benefits.
Where to Buy HAPES
HAPE Prime NFT collection is available on OpenSea marketplace at a floor price of 0.775 ETH. At press time, over 53,000 worth of ETH has been traded. The novel PFP NFT project currently boasts over 5,000 owners.
Conclusion: What’s the Next Step For HAPE Prime
The HAPE Prime NFT collection is becoming one of the most popular and adopted collections to spring from the Ape Multiverse. As its Discord channel continues to onboard more members and the project gains more traction on social media platforms, the price of the NFT is set to move on an uptrend.
The next step on the agenda is to kick off the first phase with an indefinite number of airdrops. The airdrops will provide exposure to NFT enthusiasts and build more adoption. Widespread adoption will result in the trade of more Hapes. This increase in trade is directly linked to an increase in its floor price.
