Looking to mint or buy Ugly Apes on secondary? Here’s my guide to help your research and save time. Knowledge is NFT power.

Key Information

Soleco Take

Mix in ape Design with a rabid community and you often have a recipe for PFP minting success. Some interesting roadmap elements including royalty share and token. Would like more detail on the brand story and roadmap.

  • There is no end to primate PFPs and so from a creator perspective there is the demand there. This collection does have some innovative ape art.
  • It would have been good to set the scene with a solid brand story. What happened to make them ugly? (I do like the art don’t think these are too ugly!).
  • There’s a large, engaged group of apes in the Discord with over 3,800 members as of 8th February.
  • I asked in the Discord what most people are interested in with this collection. Feedback was the art design and road map features.
  • Some interesting aspects of the road map including redistribution of 50% of royalties to holders.
  • Also planned is the Ugly DAO and charity merch.
  • There is a token to be made, called $HOOBA but no details on what they will function as.
  • No doxxed team but compose of three: marketer, developer and designer.
  • Update – have been doxxed according to:


  • Nestorito – Marketer
  • President – Developer
  • Joker – Designer


No information as yet on rarity. As of 8th Feb 2022.
