Singapore High Court Injunction Blocks Sale or Transfer of BAYC #2162 NFT

The Singapore High Court has granted a court injunction which stops or blocks the sale of a Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) non-fungible token (NFT) that one man claims was wrongfully taken away from him.

NFT Used as Collateral

A Singapore man has won a court injunction that blocks the sale or potential transfer of a Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) non-fungible token (NFT) that he claims to be rightfully his. According to a report, the NFT is currently in the possession of an online lender named Chefpierre.

The man, who has been identified by the Strait Times (ST) as Janesh Rajkumar, is seeking to recover the BAYC 2162 NFT which he pledged as his security for a loan obtained from Chefpierre. Rajkumar claimed the NFT was wrongfully taken from him.

The Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs are popular with celebrities, some of whom have paid large sums of money to acquire them. The ST report notes Madonna is the latest celebrity to become the owner of a BAYC non-fungible token, after she reportedly paid 180 ETH.

BAYC’s Rare Attributes

Detailing the NFT’s uniqueness, Rajkumar argued the collection is rare even among BAYC NFTs because it has attributes that enable the holder to create another exclusive series. Leveraging the NFT’s rarity and high value, Rajkumar was able to use the BAYC as collateral when borrowing.

In his arguments before the Singapore High Court, Rajkumar insisted his loan agreement with Chiefpierre stipulated he was not relinquishing ownership of the NFT. In the event he failed to pay back on time, Rajkumar would inform the lender who then had to provide a reasonable extension of the repayment period.

The agreement also specified that the lender could not exercise the foreclose option, Rajkumar argued.

Aave Launches Social Media Project Lens Protocol With Over 50 Apps Built on Polygon

Aave Launches Social Media Project Lens Protocol With Over 50 Apps Built on Polygon

The blockchain firm Aave has launched the Lens Protocol, a social media project with applications built on the Polygon blockchain. Lens is similar to the social media platform Twitter but Lens profiles are linked to a non-fungible token (NFT) that can be ported into decentralized applications.

Lens Protocol Is Live – Aave Founder Believes People Are ‘Ready for a Better Social Media Experience’

On Wednesday, the blockchain company Aave announced that the Lens Protocol is now live and roughly 50 applications have debuted on the platform. Aave first revealed the Lens Protocol during the first week of February 2022 and the first applications are built on top of the Polygon network.

Stani Kulechov, CEO and founder of Aave Companies said the recent Twitter ordeal with Elon Musk shows that people are looking for something different than the incumbent social media platforms. “The social media experience has remained relatively unchanged for the last decade, and much of that is due to your content being solely owned by a company, which locks your social network within one platform,” Kulechov said in a statement sent to Bitcoin.com News.

The Aave founder added:

But ultimately, as seen from Elon Musk’s bid to purchase Twitter, people are ready for a better experience than what they’re used to. Ownership over not only the content you create online, but also your profile and social network is long overdue, and empowering users is what Lens aims to achieve.

Lens Boasts 50+ Social Applications and Creator Monetization Tools Built on Polygon

The 50 applications built on Lens covers social applications to creator monetization tools, the announcement notes. Lens users that have already minted their NFT profile can access any of the applications such as Peerstream, Lenster, Swapify, Spamdao, and more. “Building a Web3 social media platform on Lens Protocol has opened up a new realm of possibilities for our development team and users,” @yoginth.eth the founder of lenster.xyz remarked during the announcement.

Lens Protocol will provide users with the foundations to leverage full ownership over their “profile, content, and relationships” while plugging into any decentralized application. G.Money, the NFT filmmaker and creator, detailed that lens will empower the platform’s userbase. “An open social graph will allow creators and brands to fully own content distribution and their audiences in a truly multi-platform way. Lens empowers platform choice and opens up wider audiences through direct creator/brand-community relationships,” the NFT filmmaker said.
