Rumors that a 10KTF, BAYC, and Gucci collaboration will take place! With how many connections there have been with 10KTF, Gucci, and Yuga Labs, some in the community are wondering whether the three companies may be hinting at a bigger collaboration in the future.
How The Rumors Started
Recently, Gucci announced that certain U.S stores of theirs will start accepting Yuga Labs’ ApeCoin as official payment, becoming the first luxury brand to accept $APE in doing so.
Aside from that, it is also known that Gucci has partnered with the 10KTF store to create Gucci Grail NFTs, soon to use Gucci material to use for 10KTF’s physical items.
Lastly, it’s also been known that while 10KTF was promoting for their collaboration with the big luxury fashion brand, they slipped in a few hints in their tweets referencing Yuga Labs, creator of Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) and their Otherside Metaverse.
With the three companies seeming to all have some type of connection and collaboration with one another, this has made the NFT community suspicious on whether the three companies have something bigger that they are planning to release in a type of “3-way collaboration”.

What Type Of Collaboration Will It Be…?
Despite buzz of the “3-way collaboration” rumor, no one in the community seems to actually know what it is that the companies would release if they genuinely were collaborating.
Previously, it was thought that Yuga Labs’ would collaborate with 10KTF by creating a plot of land in the Otherside Metaverse dedicated solely to 10KTF’s mascot, WAGMI-san. This theory seemed to make sense to the community as WAGMI-san released a “metaverse” game-like trailer to announce their collaboration with Gucci.

However, many are still confused with how Gucci the brand will play a part in this rumored collaboration.
