5 min readDec 12, 2021

If there’s one thing to take away from Disney’s ‘Planet of the Apes’ movie franchise is the familiar tagline among fans, “the apes are coming!” Fancy, right? Well, the apes are coming for real this time, not to cause chaos as usual but to put some value in your vault.

We’re talking about Macho Apes NFTs launching on the AFEN marketplace on Monday, 13th December 2021! These apes are bringing lots of goodies with them and you could win BIG by participating in this project. So you might want to stick around and read the rest of this piece.

What are Macho Apes?

Macho apes NFTs are 20 unique 72-pixel designed characters. Being NFTs, no two apes are exactly the same and each ape can be owned by a single person on the AFEN marketplace, secured by the AFEN blockchain.

Macho Apes were inspired by the ‘Bored Apes’ project of which the creators are huge fans! Bored Apes are cool and all, but in reality, male apes are actually muscular beings. The creators thought of adding actual muscles to apes — and come on, who doesn’t love an NFT that depicts the real thing, right? BOOM! The “Macho” (muscular) Apes concept was born.

Behind the art, Macho apes are also inspired by the benefits of keeping fit or staying in shape. The creators are passionate about making fitness a lifestyle! Hence, each of the 20 muscular-looking apes of all-male tribes depicts man’s true nature when he commits himself to stay fit.

That said, let’s meet the apes and learn the qualities that make each one unique.
