Universal Music Group recently purchased Bored Ape #5537, for $360.000, becoming the first major label to own one of the popular apes.
The purchase is part of Universal’s move to form a metaverse group, consisting of 4 Bored Ape members, called KINGSHIP. The new Ape is called Noët All and will function as the groups manager, leading the group to greatness.
KINGSHIP was founded back in November, by Celine Joshua, and the plan for the band is to perform concerts in the metaverse, as well as releasing its own NFTs.
“We have been incredibly busy developing KINGSHIP since our initial announcement and I’m so excited to introduce Manager Noët All, one of many new characters that will be joining the KINGSHIP universe. As the manager of the group, Manager Noët All will help drive the storyline and allow us to communicate with the community. We hope to make the KINGSHIP universe as entertaining and immersive as possible, while simultaneously building value for holders. With the launch of KINGSHIP’s official Discord, the community will have a home where members can interact with one another and get all the latest updates on KINGSHIP’s journey, including how to access the allowlist. Stay tuned, there’s so much to come.”– Celine Joshua, Founder of KINGSHIP
