In a surprising twist, Greg Solano, co-creator of the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFT collection, returns as the CEO of Yuga Labs, replacing Daniel Alegre. The move aims to refocus on the utility of BAYC NFTs and reignite the creative spirit that propelled its initial popularity.

Greg Solano, one of the minds behind the renowned Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFT collection, has reclaimed the role of CEO at Yuga Labs. This unexpected development sees him stepping back into the position, succeeding Daniel Alegre, who took on the role in April 2023.

In a recent announcement on X, Solano expressed his enthusiasm for leading Yuga Labs into its next chapter. He emphasized the importance of BAYC’s utility, underlining the collective strength of the community. Solano aims to unleash the creative potential of the BAYC team, fostering a more focused and agile approach to executing their vision.

As part of this strategic shift, Yuga Labs has established a new subsidiary, “BAYC LLC,” dedicated to all things related to Bored Ape. Solano envisions this move as a way to empower the BAYC team and create a space for the innovative and unconventional initiatives that characterized its early success.

Furthermore, Yuga Labs plans to host the “Apes Come Home” playtest event for Otherside later this month, promising enhanced communication about the game in the future.

The departure of Daniel Alegre, who previously served as president and COO of Activision Blizzard, marks a notable change in leadership. Solano’s return to the CEO role saw a positive market response, with BAYC floor prices experiencing a nearly 10% increase.

Solano co-founded Yuga Labs in February 2021 alongside Wylie Aronow, Zeshan Ali, and Kerem Atalay. As Yuga Labs embraces a new era under Solano’s leadership, the company aims to amplify the impact of BAYC and explore opportunities for growth and innovation.

Stay tuned for more updates as Yuga Labs, under the guidance of Greg Solano, embarks on an exciting journey focused on creativity, community, and the future of NFTs.
