“This council was formed with the intention of representing the club at large and providing a new avenue of perspective,” the blog post reads. “The 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.”
A primary task of the council will be to uplift Web3 initiatives in the Bored Ape community. Yuga mentions commercial products, meetups and charitable endeavors as some potential use cases for the council to boost.
Yuga says this won’t be the last NFT council it assembles to help grow its steeple of brands.
“We are also exploring the evolving needs of our other Yuga NFT communities – CryptoPunks, Meebits and Otherside,” the company said in the blog post.
