Eight weeks ago ApeCoin was launched by the DAO with community as its primary driving force. We wanted Ape to be a token for culture, gaming and commerce that the community owns and can build on.
In honor of our new forum layout, we wanted to share a recap announcement of what we’ve achieved, as well as highlight ApeCoin’s traction in the wider Web3 ecosystem.
In a short space of time, our community has made outstanding progress:
We’ve created a new currency that is held by over 60,000 people.
We’ve voted on 9 AIPs, passing 7 of them. More still have been carefully debated by the Special Council, who are humbled by the energy, enthusiasm and excitement that has gone into all of them.
These proposals cover everything from the fundamental mechanisms that guide our community to ideas on reorganizing our proposals. Our Discourse continues to be full of smart debate and innovation. DAO governance isn’t always straightforward but through good faith interaction the Foundation and community are together building a base that will serve us for years to come.
The wider Web3 ecosystem is taking note. ApeCoin is now available on major exchanges from Coinbase to Bittrex, with further integrations from big players like OpenSea and Polygon. We’ve also moved into the real world: you can now use ApeCoin to buy a burger.
Keep posting AIPs and engaging with the DAO- we look forward to working with you all as we firmly establish ourselves at the heart of the Web3 economy.
