New smartBCH Record: Gambling Apes NFTs Sold Out In 5 Minutes! - Rarity List
A new record for the smartBCH network was achieved today.
The NFT collection Gambling Apes Club sold out 10,000 NFTs in just five minutes and managed volumes of 400BCH (~$115,000).
The demand for NFT collections is growing and smartBCH slowly becomes one of the hottest networks for NFT developers and artists to present their work.
Apes.cash, with this new record in NFTs minting time, followed the steps of quite a lot of successful collections launched and sold out on the smartBCH network.
With the latest addition of Gambling Apes, the most successful NFT collections on smartBCH up to date are:
Poolside Puffers: Mint Phase 7.35 BCH volume (read more)
CashCats: 500 BCH mint
Thrones-Queens: 300 BCH mint (read more)
Gambling Apes Club: 400 BCH
Gambling Apes Club
The minting phase was a moment filled with excitement, and currently, the hundreds of smartBCH NFT collectors that rushed to purchase their apes are counting the stats and calculating the rarity of each of their NFT.
Gambling Apes Club on smartBCH is the creation of Keith Patrick and Joemar Taganna (CEO of Paytaca and Lead Developer of Spice Token).
Twelve special apes with unique traits exist and are now in the possession of a few lucky investors.
One of the 12 Special NFTs is Jihan Wu!
Besides the 12 special NFTs, there is also a long list of a rarity on various traits and rare "fur" is definitely in demand:
Some of the most wanted Apes, are Vampires, Apes, Martian, and Skeleton.
The traits are displayed on the marketplace, however, the property "Profile" is not included in the rarity list, as it represents the differences of fur.
It wasn’t all smooth, though. First, we learned the marketplace would not be ready until a few days later. The marketplace is on the website (link) and for the time being, Apes holders can use it to locate the NFTs, look for their traits, and more or less discover the rarity.
The collection page on apes.cash doesn’t load the images, probably because of some issue the contract faces.
There is a problem with the current contract, making it unreadable by the Apes Marketplace and OASIS, but the team is dedicated to fixing it as soon as possible.
The devs are actively addressing the issue assured they take all the necessary steps, already creating a new contract if the issues with the current one can’t be resolved.
In the case a new contract is deployed, there won’t be any reversals, but the team will allocate the new NFTs to the holders’ wallets. To alleviate any concerns, the devs on telegram are being transparent and already explained the backup plan if this situation can’t be resolved.
*Edit: The issue is now completely resolved and new Apes were minted and replaced the previous on the collectors wallets.
Until a fix is applied, there are two ways to view the minted NFTs.
We can manually navigate to the designated page number on the official marketplace and find the number of the NFT, or,
we can use the IPFS link and change the number to the corresponding NFT (no traits available with this approach)
Trading can apply only OTC currently after an arrangement between a buyer and a seller, but perhaps it should be best to avoid at this phase, until a solution is released.

The traits are extracted from the official website (link) and I created this excel spreadsheet for convenience.
The file is also available in jpg format on Imgur (link). Also, if anyone needs the spreadsheet contact me and I will pass the .xls file.
"Hat" trait issue
As I was verifying the numbers on the sheet, something didn't add up. I notified the Apes devs 76 values were missing from the "hat" trait since when adding up all (including the 12 special) the total was 9924 instead of 10000.
The above spreadsheet is incomplete for the time being concerning the trait "hat", but will be updated once we have news, perhaps in the following days.
*Edit: The issue is now resolved and the 76 missing numbers were added to the none category of the trait: hat.
As I have previously mentioned multiple times, any NFT collection with quality artwork and a professional approach (website, marketplace, staking, other traits) will be successful on smartBCH.
The community and the active NFT collectors are simply too many to ignore. Yet, most artists still struggle with blockchains that offer minimum exposure and sell great artwork in Wax, Solana, and even Tron, where they usually don't find enough demand and prices of their collections plummet.
The current issues will be resolved in the next few days and trading will begin. Apes had a big part of the smartBCH community waiting patiently and in many parts of the world, people lost sleep waiting for the minting phase to open.
It was remarkable how 10,000 NFTs were sold so fast, and many collectors missed their chance to participate in this mint phase but will find some NFTs at reasonable prices once the issues mentioned here are resolved.
Certainly, Apes was another shining moment for smartBCH.

I wasn't aware of it's release, but still if I was, I guess I wouldn't have been able to mint any. 5 minutes is a really short time. I read @akagaminoDneloy article and realized I had no chance, also due to my bad device. Will there be another NFT release?
