The Storied Roadmap
The OG LBAC Story and the rug that brought this community of investors together to start JungleBay is just too long to fit here. In a nutshell, The project was rugged by the creator, the scammer, and Opensea. The full story is available on our medium.The Rug Story
The rug left everyone wondering. "What are we going to do? could this be true?" Then a few people, notably Ghost, Drew and Chase stepped up and pulled us out of our funk. "We own the community," they declared! The artwork is the asset but the community has the power. Quick thinking minds and very calculated moves followed.
We created a voting system, we wrote a contract for an official DAO to control the decisions and movements of the community. Our displeasure with OpenSea fueled the desire to create our own marketplace. One with a true vetting process, maximum up time, customer service, and other attributes unheard of from the others.THE OG DAO
A seed investment was requested of any member able to do so and a Tier 1 community was created. Each of those community members were granted a JungleBay Gold Card. The Gold Card represents ownership and royalties from the planned marketplace. From the name came a logo. Then, an internal roadmap for a genesis minting with new artwork.
We had a clear vision on what we wanted to do. Small problem… We had no idea how to do it. An unbelievable amount of discussion and chat was had over several weeks. We identified members of our community who had skill sets and talent that could help attain our next goal, Version 2! A new name, what character should we use? Baby Apes again? Tigers? Lions? Every animal in the Kingdom was suggested. A few DAO votes on the type of image to be used were had and it was decided that we would rise again as baby apes. The JungleBay Ape Club or JBAC.The DAO Votes
The plans were made. The art was done. Now, Minting
- 5555 Unique JBAC NFTs

Whitelisted addresses only minting came next. .05 eth and 5 max per wallet and ran for 1 day.
Once we went to public mint(.05 eth, same as whitelist), we watched the numbers climb, 2000 to go, 1000 left, only 500 more! At 01:02 PM January 29, 2022, the JungleBay Ape Club minted out. There was a collective sigh of relief but we knew very well the hard work we had to do moving forward.Read more

THE JungleBay Ape Club Team
Had individual members not stepped up to selflessly contribute their time, money and respective expertise—with no expectation other than that they could trust in the motives of their fellow community members—this project would have dissolved months ago.
Against all odds: with every surprise expense, speed bump, disagreement, scam attempt and multitude of other external forces that tried to derail us, our communitys resilience stayed laser-focused on building and overcoming; failure was never an option.

The JungleBay Ape Club Community
It’s common for projects to boast a strong, dedicated community. However, the JungleBay community has arguably established the blueprint for a project that is truly community built. From rug to DAO, to art development, to mint out, land acquisition in the Sandbox, tokenomics/staking, weekly community events and a vibrant voice chat, this community has now become a family.
