What is The Degen Trilogy?

The Degen Trilogy is a 3-part interactive film series featuring the Bored Ape Yacht Club and Apecoin communities.


Interactivity - Easter Eggs

A fun aspect of this project is that anyone (both Apes & non-Apes) can hide "Easter Eggs" on the Degen Trilogy website. What this means is that everyone has the ability to vote on different aspects of things that appear in the film. There will be new things to vote on weekly (and sometimes daily) like naming items as seen in the screenshot below.

Voting on elements of the story will also be available ahead of each episode drop to give the community further influence in the film's production. This feature reminds me a lot of White Rabbit.


Casting Call

Owners of Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs are eligible to submit their Apes for casting in the film until April 13th.


It sounds like the main characters for the film have already been chosen and this casting call is likely for secondary or background characters.


What happens if my ape is selected?

  • Owners of selected apes will be required to sign and submit documentation including a license agreement and applicable tax forms

  • Owners of licensed apes receive $10k in either ApeCoin or Bitcoin


What does the licensing agreement include?

The agreement grants the Company an irrevocable, nonexclusive, royalty free license to:

  • Copy

  • Reproduce

  • Perform

  • Display

  • Distribute

  • Modify

  • Publish

  • Make derivative works from

  • With or without any identification of the Owner

  • In whatever form and whatever circumstances Company sees fit, and to

  • Incorporate the same into other works, in any form, media or technology now known or hereafter developed, solely for creating and disseminating the Program and Advertising


License agreement TLDR: "Company is only permitted to use the Ape(s) for the Film Trilogy Series and to advertise the Film Trilogy Series"


What happens if my ape appears in the film and I later transfer it?

Licenses are irrevocably tied to apes that appear in the film. The license remains tied to that specific NFT even when sold or transferred to another party.


Will Coinbase profit from my ape?

The film is not expected to make profit. If it does, all proceeds will be donated to a non-profit as chosen by The Degen Trilogy participants.


When will Episode 1 release?

Episode 1 premieres at NFT.NYC, JUNE 20-23, 2022.
