“My mother cried when I got a job as an officer at the Bored Monkey Yacht Club, one of the leading social monkey clubs. She grunt and grunt and peeled one of our finest bananas. ” “You are about to meet some of the best monkeys in the world,” Jenkins said. “She rolled her eyes. She had the power to decorate, and in the end, I was going to become a policeman. ”
Jenkins the Valet is a big-eyed chestnut service monkey that looks pretty ordinary, but in his work jacket and Irish boho hat, he is considered a hardworking professional, a true embodiment of discretion and perhaps one of the best. boring monkeys. In the world of the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC).
As another BAYC icon, Jenkins has since grown into a project and story in its own right.

Six months ago, Jenkins revealed his connection to storytelling and thus his intentions to uncover unthinkable secrets, first-hand stories and possibly shady criminal activity at the Bored Ape Yacht Club.
In the words of Jenkins himself: “Damn, I killed a man.”

Cointelegraph: Jenkins, Safa, thanks for joining us today. First of all, could you please tell us about your current roles in the Jenkins project and what that means day in and day out?
Safa: We both wear a lot of hats, but in general, everything related to technology belongs to Jenkins. This is in addition to the writing, the voice of the character you see on social media and the city hall, and overseeing the entire development team.
I do a lot of marketing, social media strategies, finance and operations. We are both in corporate governance. To be honest, apart from technology, we both overlap a bit.
Jenkins: There is one more thing I want to say that you (Safa) are doing, which I think is very important. You gave me the honor to vote Jenkins, but you created the Jenkins brand and you spend a lot of time thinking about how other people will perceive the project. I think this is what our community and society as a whole like about our project.
Jenkins cites the physical footage shown at NFT in New York last month as a good example of how Safa’s experience has enabled them to integrate their social audience into a physical monument and how it has been appreciated by the community.
