90’s Ape Club – An NFT collection for the 90’s kid to reshape the industry

The 90's Ape Club team is excited to introduce their collection of characters inspired from the 90's which have been designed by award winning Artist Keivo, who was named Young Cannes Lions Global 2021 Winner in Digital Art.

The 90's was a magical time – the birth of the internet created the innovation of the website and email with the rise of CompuServe, Prodigy, AOL and more.

For the first time, people could make friends around the globe in a much more meaningful and connected way – not through pen pal letters or the digital equivalent of bulletin boards, but instead through chat rooms and GeoCities and TriPod – searches still had to be done through HotBot or AltaVista and your brand new 28.8 baud model on your brand new Intel Pentium machine running Windows 95 was Rad and L33T.

For many of us, culture and music reached a pinnacle – MTV was still playing music videos.  You probably still listen to the music from that age - 2Pac and Biggie, WuTang and Big L – you remember Ja Rule and DMX, Brittany and No Doubt – Nirvana and Soundgarden and STP and when you hear Jock Jamz you're instantly transported back to a grade school or high school sports game – or maybe Mariah Carey's Hero” comes on the radio and you remember your first slow dances at the 8th grade mixer or maybe just remember watching Dennis Rodman and Michael Jordan go HAM on the court – or the bright neon scrunchies and Hot Topic studded belts or chain wallets on JNCO pants that sagged so low they defied the physics being taught in your high school classroom.

Sound familiar? You might just be a 90s kid – or maybe you wish you were. The 90s Ape Club was created as a place for 90s kids (both in age and spirit) to come together for the next big rise of the internet: into the Metaverse.

Their goal is to rekindle that nostalgia and control our own destiny in the Metaverse with multicultural collaboration, 90s themed parties around the globe, and building an impassioned vision of the future. They want to make sure that this important era is preserved on the blockchain forever – and you can be part of it.

The collection contains 5,555 apes generated by Artificial Intelligence. The first 1,000 were minted in the OG mint and boast special Genesis traits, making them extremely rare.

What was the mint price for Genesis Apes?
0.055 ETH 

What will be the mint price for presale and public sale?
Presale: 0.06 ETH Public sale: 0.08 ETH

Whitelisted members can mint up to 3 Apes per wallet during presale.

Any Apes that are not minted by whitelist members will be available in the public mint. During this mint, users will be able to purchase up to 10 Apes per wallet.


Being a 90's Ape Club holder offers a number of impressive utilities as shown below:


The team has proposed 2 NFT conferences and meetups in 2022 exclusively for holders. One of these meet-ups will be held in early August in Slovenia while the other will be held in North America with the exact location TBA. Holders will also attend special online NFT conferences for members that can't attend the IRL conferences. The goal is to share experiences and knowledge with the members as well as educate them about topics such as mental health and security in the NFT space, as well as the future of the metaverse.


The team are currently developing their exclusive P2E game which is set in an alternative 1991 Hollywood called ‘Apewood'. You will assume the role of your NFT hero on a revenge rampage against the underworld. It will be inspired by some of GameBoys classics back in the 90's. Teasers of the game will be being released to the community in the near future. The game is set to be released in Q4. Alpha The team will also offer holders an alpha channel where they will have up-to-date information about existing and upcoming projects, exclusive whitelist opportunities, alpha alerts, special giveaways, and a host of other valuable information and benefits.

The Core Product, REC603, is a recombinant HPV 9-valent vaccine candidate, which is currently under phase III clinical trial in China. The Company plan to submit the BLA application in 2025 for REC603 and commence commercialization once the BLA application is approved. In addition, its COVID-19 vaccine, ReCOV, has commenced a phase I clinical trial in New Zealand in June 2021 and obtained the initial partially unblinded data in October 2021. Based on the major safety and immunogenicity data and the partially unblinded efficacy data from the phase I trial, the Company subsequently obtained the clinical trial approval from the Philippines FDA to conduct the global phase II/III trial for ReCOV in January 2022. To date, the Company has initiated subject enrollment for the global phase II/III trial for ReCOV in the Philippines. In January 2022, the Company also obtained the unblinded clinical data for the remaining three cohorts and has been finalizing data analysis and clinical trial report.

In light of overarching vaccine industry trends, it has strategically developed a pipeline that extends from preventative to post-exposure prophylaxis. In addition to HPV and COVID-19, its comprehensive pipeline also includes a recombinant shingles vaccine, two TB vaccines for adults, an influenza quadrivalent vaccine, and an HFMD quadrivalent vaccine.

HPV vaccines are one of the most commercially valuable vaccines in the world, with a global market size of US$4.2 billion in 2020, accounting for approximately 11.5% of the global vaccine market in terms of production volume. Therefore, the Company has strategically developed a comprehensive HPV pipeline to address the unmet urgent need for HPV vaccines. To date, the Company is advancing clinical trials of three key vaccine candidates namely a recombinant HPV 9-valent vaccine, REC603, and two recombinant bivalent vaccines, REC601 and REC602, targeting different countries and populations. At present, the Company is also developing REC604a and REC604b with a potentially fewer dose regimen, employing a self-developed novel adjuvant benchmarking AS04, and plans to submit INDs filing in 2022 and 2023, respectively.

What is noteworthy is that, its recombinant HPV 9-valent vaccine, REC603, is expected to be the one of the first of domestic vaccines of its kind to be approved and commercialized in China. The Company is currently conducting a phase III clinical trial and has completed 12,500 subjects enrollment for the potency tests in October 2021. The first subject was enrolled on June 26, 2021 and the Company is actively working with industry leading PIs and highly-qualified CROs to accelerate its trial progress. The Company expects to complete three-shot dosing by the first half of 2022 and plans to reach primary endpoints for its phase III clinical trial and submit BLA to the NMPA in 2025.

Bank Freedom Finance Kazakhstan JSC Launches a Digital Mortgage

Almaty, The Republic of Kazakhstan, Mar 10, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Bank Freedom Finance Kazakhstan JSC announces they have digitized mortgage loan by 90%. At the same time in leading countries such as Finland, South Korea, Sweden, USA the level of digitalization of mortgage products reaches just over 30%. In the UK, it is 55%.

The UN's 2020 study examined 193 countries in terms of their level of e-government development (E-Government Development Index). This index consists of the arithmetic mean of three indicators: the breadth and quality of online services, the level of development of telecommunications infrastructure and the amount of human capital.

Denmark, South Korea, Estonia, Finland, Australia, Sweden, Great Britain, New Zealand, the United States and the Netherlands are at the top of the list of most digitized countries. Kazakhstan was ranked 29th, with first place among the CIS countries.

To understand the level of digitalization of the mortgage loan process, the top banks in the above countries were studied in terms of digitalization. The following mortgage origination steps were considered and tested: application - pre-approval – real estate valuing - decision - deal execution - signing of documents - registration of a pledge - disbursement in the moment - post-service. The analysis showed that the international examples used a hybrid scheme - where online processes are combined with offline ones.

In Kazakhstan's digital mortgage, all stages are digitized except for the last one, when a meeting with a notary is required to sign the Purchase and Sale Agreement. This cannot be done remotely under the Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan. But even with the last step, mortgage processing takes a day. No paper documents are required - the system itself collects them from state databases, the real estate valuing is done online, the pledge is registered remotely, and an electronic digital signature can be issued in the process.
