Step aside, paper clip. A Vancouver-based artist is willing to part ways with his Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs if you have a house in the city to trade.
Frederic Duquette, aka Fvckrender, is a futuristic tech-digital artist and a prominent creator in the international non-fungible token space.
Fvckrender announced yesterday through his Instagram story and Twitter account that he was looking to trade four of the highly-sought-after Bored Ape NFTs for a house in Vancouver.

“You don’t know if you don’t try,” Fvckrender wrote in his Twitter trade proposal.
According to the NFT marketplace OpenSea, three of the four Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs that Fvckrender has offered for trade can be purchased for a collective 439 Ether with a value of over $1 million dollars. The fourth is currently listed with a “make offer”.
Fvckrender’s tweet has already received a variety of trade offers and replies, some a little less serious than others.
