about Yuga Labs

News about Yuga Labs. Yuga Labs, the company behind the Bored Apes Yacht Club (BAYC) and the Otherside metaclass universe, will release a new Mecha Apes NFT collection. According to sources, Yuga Labs will release another Mecha Apes NFT collection in hopes of raising an additional $50 million.

The new NFT collection will help bolster Yuga Labs’ piggy bank, though the company has already raised $450 million in a seed funding round this March and also raised $600 million from sales of the Otherside meta-universe NFT.

Yuga Labs bought the cryptopunks. An unstoppable stream of new NFTs

Yuga Labs first launched the Bored Apes Yacht Club (BAYC) NFT collection in April 2021, and the company has been growing the ecosystem ever since, releasing additional products.

It looks like this year we will witness the launch of another NFT collection from Yuga Labs.

It is not yet known what the monkeys in the new collection will look like. However, according to a leaked document, this NFT-collection will be closely related to Otherside’s meta-universe and play a major role in its development.

So why Mecha Apes? The Mecha Piece artifact can be found in the territories of the meta-universe. It is assumed that this item will be linked to the new NFT collection.

Big Business

In addition to buying cryptopunks and continuing to promote its own NFT collections, Yuga Labs is also acquiring other non-interchangeable token collections. In March, the company announced that it had bought well-known collections such as Cryptopunks and Meebits from Larva Labs. Yuga Labs is currently valued at $4 billion, and with further launches of new and exciting NFTs, the company may be worth much more in the future.

Yuga Labs’ monkey business is still making huge profits for the company and this is likely to be the trend in the coming years.

Tether full audit

Tether auditor company, Friedman LLP, was fined $1.5 million for improper services from 2017 to 2020. This was reported in a press release from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

According to the exchange regulator, the Tether auditing company didn’t properly develop audit procedures in its work for the iFresh product network. The company also didn’t exercise the necessary due diligence in auditing another unnamed company. Although the press release does not explicitly identify Tether, the issuer of the USDTstablecoin, as Tether, Friedman’s firm was Tether’s auditor from just 2017 to 2018.

Tether full audit

Earlier, a New York County court required Tether to disclose the USDT Stablecoin’s collateral and prove the assets linkage to the U.S. dollar. According to the court order, Tether is required to provide the company’s financials, income statements, cash flow statements, and so on. However, the time frame in which Tether must provide the statements is not specified.

The lawsuit is part of a legal battle between investors and Tether’s parent company, iFinex. The plaintiffs believe that Tether manipulated the cryptocurrency market by issuing unsecured USDT with the intention of artificially inflating cryptocurrency prices.
