It has been reported that the team revealed seven council members in an October 5 blog post, noting that they are all OGs who have been around since the early days of BAYC. Yuga Labs said it assembled a new community council made up of “Apes with a proven track record of proactively and positively contributing to the club since the start.”
However, the members include Beijingdou, SeraStargirl, TheMiamiApe, OxEthanDG, OxWave, Negithenagi, and Peterjfang.
Yuga Labs wrote:
“This council was formed with the intention of representing the club at large and providing an avenue for new perspectives.”
The report said that Yuga Labs stated that it will engage with the community and gather feedback for the firm, working with Yuga on community-driven initiatives such as commercial projects, meetups, and charity work.
“Every Ape in our community has directly impacted our decision-making from day one. This council, and future councils to come, puts a more formal, efficient and consistent process in place for Yuga leadership to get community feedback and advice on an ongoing basis.”
Thus, Yuga Labs also teased that it could soon launch community councils for its other NFT projects including CryptoPunks, Meebits, and the Otherside, moving forward.
