Why is it drawing attention?

Boba announced that it had executed single-token gas payments in the form of a BOBA token. In addition, it would provide a 25% discount on gas fees for users that choose to pay in BOBA.

This move would widen the BOBA token's use as a fee token for all its services. However, users can still choose to use ETH for gas payments. It scales the Ethereum network with faster transactions and cheaper fees (up to 60X lower). These developments may have attracted investors' attention to the project.
