“My mother cried when I got a job as a butler in the Bored Monkey Yacht Club, one of the most popular social clubs for monkeys. I screamed, laughed and peeled one of our best bananas. “Jenkins, you will meet shoulder to shoulder with some of the best monkeys from around the world,” she said, rolling her eyes. She knew how to dress, and in the end I was just going to be a servant.
Jenkins the Servant is a wide-open office man, with brown fur, who looks quite ordinary, but in his work jacket and Irish boho hat, widely known as a diligent professional, he is a true embodiment of discretion and perhaps one of the most boring monkeys. . In the world of Bored Ape Yacht Clubs (BAYC).
Jenkins was created as another icon at BAYC, and has since grown into a project and a story in itself. Jenkins is spoken across platforms by an anonymous guy who studied creative writing in college and has spent the past six years as product manager for a major consumer technology company. Jenkins’ partner, Safa, is a self-proclaimed series founder with extensive marketing experience and runs his own creative agency.
Six months ago, Jenkins revealed his involvement in storytelling, and thus his intentions to reveal unimaginable secrets, first-hand stories and possibly suspicious criminal activity at the Bored Ape Yacht Club.
In the words of Jenkins himself, “Damn, I killed a man.”

Exclusive chairs for these owners are reserved at a table in Jenkins’ famous writing room, synonymous with the expression in the film industry, but here on Web 3.0 it offers a digital portal to simplify questions and suggestions raised by Strauss and other members of the genre. The plot, the characters and the general concept of the story.
The characters’ involvement in the novel will vary from simple identification to the main character’s characteristics, depending on their level of origin.

During the Cointelegraph’s conversation with Jenkins and Safa, it was clear that the couple sees this project as a positive intersection between their interests, skills and work experience, and as such represents the culmination of their creative endeavors up to this point.
The zoom interview has been changed a bit for clarity and shortened to accommodate reading restrictions.
Cointelegraph: Jenkins, Safa, thank you for joining us today. First of all, can you tell us about your current roles in the Jenkins project and what it entails on a daily basis?
Safa: We both wear a bunch of hats, but overall it’s about technology that goes to Jenkins. It’s not just the writing, but the voice of the character you see on social media and City Hall, and the oversight of our entire development team.
I do a lot of marketing, social media strategies, finance and operations. We both participate in community management. Honestly, apart from technology, we both overlap a bit.
Jenkins: There’s another thing I want to say that you do (Safa) that I think is very important. You gave me the honor of voting for Jenkins, but you created the Jenkins brand and spent a lot of time thinking about how others would perceive the project. I think that is what our society and society as a whole admires.
Jenkins cites the physical server stand that was unveiled at NFT in New York last month as a good example of how the brand experience allowed them to connect their social audience to a physical monument and how it was valued by society.
