This explains that the holders of Meebit and CryptoPunks will be given the same rights as that of the Yuga Labs holders. As of now, there’s ongoing work with the legal teams to craft new terms & conditions for Meebits’ and CryptoPunks’ holders.

However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that Meebits and CryptoPunks will be given the “club” model as that of the BAYC. Yuga has explained that BAYC will be their main project. They referred to CryptoPunks as a “historic” collection. This was because CryptoPunks was the first NFT collection to drive massive attention. Despite all of this, Yuga Labs will look further to add more utility to Meebits and CryptoPunks collection.

Matt Hall and John Watkinson, the founders of Larva Labs and creators of the Meebits and CryptoPunks collection will continue to be at Larva Labs.
