Yuga, incorporated in Delaware and headquartered in Tysons, Virginia, sells NFTs and ApeCoin tokens, as well as virtual “land” in the Otherside metaverse.  One of its NFT brands, the Bored Ape Yacht Club, was widely promoted by compensated celebrity endorsers, including Jimmy Fallon, Snoop Dogg and Madonna.  The action alleges that Yuga made false and/or misleading statements about how it compensated these celebrity endorsers for promoting Yuga securities, including Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs, to the public.  The action claims that these endorsements artificially inflated the price of Yuga securities by, among other things, falsely portraying their popularity as organically rather than artificially derived.

The securities class action states claims against Yuga, along with numerous of its paid endorsers and company insiders, for violating (1) federal securities laws (including Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder, and Sections 5, 12(a)(1), and 15 of the Securities Act of 1933); (2) the California Unfair Competition Law Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code §17200; (3) the California Consumer Legal Remedies Act Cal. Civil Code §1770; (4) Aiding and Abetting under the California Common Law; and (5) Civil Conspiracy under the California Common Law.
