AIP-374: Healthcare Utility for holders of $APE and BAYC/Otherside NFTs with $APE liquidity sinks 

ABSTRACT

This proposal seeks to create Healthcare Utility for holders of $APE as well as relevant Yuga ecosystem NFTs (BAYC/MAYC/BAKC, Kodas, and Otherdeeds) and bootstrap a web 3 digital health platform that will accept payments in $Ape.

Utility will be in the form of dedicated asynchronous medical advice for all relevant holders using a platform that will take the form of a reddit-meets-medium for healthcare, using a mix of medical Q&A and long-form content articles moderated by verified doctors and health sciences academics for individuals to optimize their personal wellness or enhance their health. The supply-side of this platform (verified doctors and health sciences academics) will be populated at the outset in partnership with a medical clinic registered in Singapore, one of the world’s top health systems. They will provide medical advice to relevant beneficiaries outlined in this proposal to pilot the initial front-end of the product with a gradual increase in their daily clinical hours (as a cost-saving measure proposed by the community during feedback, for the clinical hours to increase in tandem with projected adoption of healthcare utility).

Please see detailed ABSTRACT of AIP-374

BENEFIT TO APECOIN ECOSYSTEM

This proposal will yield multiple benefits to the $APE coin ecosystem over the course of this 2-year project;

  1. Increased $APE coin buy pressure with options for discounted payments within the healthcare utility ecosystem in $APE, whereby any individual can access teleconsultation or other virtual services in the platform by making payment in $APE
  2. Reduced circulating $APE through implementation of liquidity sinks including;
  • benefits for $APE holders/stakers to encourage long-term holding, as well as
  • a commitment from our team to stake 50% of all our platform profit as apecoin $APE for a minimum of 5-years to keep our platform incentives aligned with that of apecoin DAO.
  1. Utility for $APE holders/stakers based on the 3-month average (3MA) amount of $APE held/staked from their wallets - in the form of;
  • Minimum 50 $APE: Free asynchronous medical Q&A in a publicly visible digital forum with verified medical doctors and health sciences academics to optimize their personal wellness or enhance their health, medical advice, patient navigation, illness support, second opinions, and the like.
  • Minimum 2,000 $APE: FOC synchronous appointment-based private teleconsultations once a year for medical advice, patient navigation, illness support, second opinions, and the like based on jurisdictional approvals
  • Minimum 5,000 $APE: FOC teleconsultation appointment once a quarter as above
  • Minimum 10,000 $APE: FOC teleconsultation appointment once a month as above
  • Minimum 40,000 $APE: FOC teleconsultation appointment once a week as above
  1. Utility token-gated for relevant Yuga NFT holders from the product launch in the form of;
  • Holder of any Yuga NFT: Free asynchronous medical Q&A in a publicly visible digital forum with verified medical doctors and health sciences academics to optimize their personal wellness or enhance their health, medical advice, patient navigation, illness support, second opinions, and the like.
  • Holder of Otherdeed NFT: FOC synchronous appointment-based private teleconsultations once a year for medical advice, patient navigation, illness support, second opinions, and the like based on jurisdictional approvals
  • Holder of Bored Ape Kennel Club (BAKC) NFT: FOC teleconsultation appointment once a quarter as above
  • Holder of Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC) or Koda NFTs: FOC teleconsultation appointment once a month as above
  • Holder of Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFT: FOC teleconsultation appointment once a week as above

AIP-375: Bored Brewing, $APE on Consumer Beverages and $APE Taproom - AIP Resubmission

ABSTRACT

tl;dr - After overwhelming support and some feedback to improve, Bored Brewing wants to be the first AIP to give equity back to the DAO.

We want to spread the word of ApeCoin by integrating $APE into the packaging of our beer and through explosive growth of our Made By Apes launch partner brand. This will include creating an $APE coin beer, QR codes on all cans and gamified educational content about the DAO and $APE, Web3 Gaming partnerships & sponsorships, and building out Distribution in Canada, USA, Europe and Asia, as well as a Bored Brewing Clubhouse/Taproom IRL and in The OTHERSIDE. You may even recognize us from Apefest as we were able to source production and manufacture beer that was provided to attendees at this year's Apefest in Hong Kong!

BENEFIT TO APECOIN ECOSYSTEM

  1. We will work with the DAO and legal to give back 2% of equity to the DAO. This first of it’s kind give back will usher in the next wave of AIP’s and set the stage for true value creation within the DAO amplified by the marketing impact through branding, education and culture driven social content and sharing. By taking this on, Bored Brewing will lay the difficult, but exciting groundwork for giving back to the DAO.

  2. We will be spreading knowledge about $APE coin to less crypto native people who enjoy drinking beer. We believe that $APE can become a currency for the digital revolution and we want to be a small part of spreading the name to a demographic thirsty for this type of knowledge outside of the crypto community.

  3. We will sponsor partnered events and share the $APE coin brand across other relevant crypto/nft communities. The goal is to market the coin and share the background and goals of the DAO for the future.

OVERALL COST

149,696 $APE Tokens

AIP-321: Founders Circle Powered by ApeCoin

ABSTRACT:

|624x143

This proposal aims to establish a global presence for ApeCoin DAO by strategically setting up 3 offices in diverse locations worldwide. The ApeCoin DAO Founders Circle is an exclusive space and event hub designed to support early-stage blockchain and DeFi startups and promote ApeCoin DAO by educating the local tech communities about our vision and processes. This initiative includes access to online educational resources, 1:1 sessions, networking opportunities, exclusive invitations to IRL events, and access to ApeCoin DAO’s community and investor network. The benefits of funding this initiative include establishing ApeCoinDAO as a hub for early-stage startup founders and entrepreneurs, building a strong network of like-minded individuals, and increasing the visibility and reach of the organization in DAO’s selected markets.

image|624x312

These offices will serve as dynamic showcases for ApeCoin DAO, embodying a proactive approach to engage and educate local communities on pivotal topics such as $APE, the metaverse, and web3.

BENEFIT TO APECOIN ECOSYSTEM

The ApeCoin DAO Founders Circle holds transformative potential that directly aligns with the objectives of DAO vote AIP-259. This initiative strategically reinforces the proposed impact within selected markets by establishing offices and operational hubs in those markets. The initiative contributes to significant realization in selected markets, elevating brand visibility, onboarding Web2 to Web3, and fostering long-term growth for ApeCoin.

Selected Market Penetration

The Founders Circle's approach of opening worldwide offices and operational hubs aligns perfectly with the intention to create significant impact in the selected markets identified by AIP-259: Language and Market Focus for ApeCoin DAO in 2024-2025. This strategic alignment ensures that the ecosystem's presence is not only felt but also deeply integrated into these markets, effectively amplifying our reach and influence.

Promoting ApeCoin DAO

The initiative's inclusion of showcasing the ApeCoin DAO logo on buildings in the selected markets further elevates our brand visibility and reputation. By creating localized touchpoints, it introduces the organization's values, technologies, and services to a broader audience, positioning ApeCoin DAO as a leading entity within the metaverse.

Onboarding Web2 to Web3

The Founders Circle serves as a bridge for Web2 communities looking to enter the Web3 world. It provides a localized, supportive environment for tech companies and startups to learn about web3, NFTs, and blockchain technology, and our DAO facilitating a smooth transition into the crypto space.

Long-Term Growth and Expansion

The multi-year timeline of the Founders Circle’s operations further enhances the lasting impact outlined in AIP-259. By establishing a continuous presence, we can cultivate enduring relationships with local investors, startups, and communities, contributing to the sustained growth and influence sought by the DAO.

OVERALL COST

9M $APE for 2024-2027, to be provided in tranches via a mechanism to be determined together with the APE Foundation at a later date.**

AIP-368: ApeChain - A zk-Powered Polygon Layer-2 to Support ApeCoin Growth

ABSTRACT

Polygon Labs proposes that ApeCoin DAO launch and maintain its own zero-knowledge powered Layer-2 (“zk-L2”) with the Polygon Chain Development Kit (“CDK”) to accelerate the growth and development of the ApeCoin ecosystem.

This proposal includes (1) the launch of a dedicated ApeCoin zk-L2 chain (“ApeChain”) built and maintained by Gateway.fm, a premier rollup as a service (“RaaS”) provider that builds Web3 infrastructure and tooling products with advisory support from Polygon Labs and oversight of such building and maintenance to be conducted by the ApeCoin DAO Foundation and (2) ecosystem collaboration with Polygon Labs to help stimulate the growth of ApeCoin-integrated projects (experiences, entertainment, games and consumer applications) and ApeChain-related public goods (middleware, marketplaces, and necessary infrastructure).

As contemplated under “Gateway.fm as RaaS Provider and Architecture Considerations” below, ApeChain will be fully owned, governed and run under the patronage of the ApeCoin DAO community with 100% of all revenue, including sequencer fees or any potential Native Yield (defined below), accruing to the ApeCoin DAO and ApeCoin Validators (defined below). No AIP Idea is inherently linked to this AIP and all AIP Ideas–design architecture or otherwise–not explicitly covered within this AIP (e.g., a separate “ApeChain token” launch/airdrop or a development fund from the ApeCoin DAO treasury to help stimulate the growth of ApeCoin-integrated projects and ApeChain-related public goods) is not precluded from this ApeChain implementation but instead is left to the community (e.g., through subsequent AIPs by ApeCoin community members) even in cases where Polygon Labs does not believe it would be in the best interests of APE holders.



image1

BENEFIT TO APECOIN ECOSYSTEM

The ApeCoin community has been aware that ApeCoin “will need to migrate to its own chain in order to properly scale” since these very words were tweeted by Yuga Labs nearly 18 months ago. Indeed, Yuga Labs went on to “encourage the [ApeCoin] DAO to start thinking in this direction.” While ApeCoin DAO voted on AIP-41 to keep ApeCoin within the Ethereum ecosystem, the question of an ApeCoin-specific chain is open and remains ripe for decision.

Here’s where this AIP comes in: to propose a dedicated ApeChain, using Polygon CDK, an open source toolset developers can use to launch their own zk-powered L2 on Ethereum with little friction and an emphasis on modularity, built and maintained by Gateway.fm with advisory support from Polygon Labs and oversight by the ApeCoin DAO Foundation.

As detailed below under “Platforms and Technologies,” ApeChain will provide ApeCoin DAO and its members potential sequencer fees and staking rewards for network validators while solving the scaling issue mentioned above. In other words, this chain will provide dedicated, ultra-premium and inexpensive blockspace for ApeCoin DAO-affiliated and/or -incubated experiences, entertainment, games and consumer applications that will ultimately bring not only more users into the ApeCoin ecosystem, but also additional activity and creation of all types of value (content, assets, data and the like).

Polygon CDK has seen great adoption already. Chains being developed using Polygon CDK and core contributors thereto include X1 (built by OKX), Immutable zkEVM, NEAR zkWASM, Gnosis Pay, Capx, Palm Network, Astar zkEVM, Canto and Celestia (for data availability), among others. This is because Polygon CDK offers the highest degree of flexibility in scaling Ethereum while also remaining maximally secure.

ApeCoin DAO's stated mission is to “empower a decentralized community building at the forefront of web3.” Via $APE, ApeCoin DAO will build and support “a decentralized protocol layer for community-led initiatives that drive culture forward into the metaverse."

ApeChain will provide the ApeCoin DAO with an efficient and secure execution environment upon which ApeCoin DAO projects can be built to help realize this mission. As a result, by virtue of ApeCoin DAO gaining composability and interoperability with the entire modular suite of Polygon solutions (including Polygon PoS, which will soon be upgraded to a zkEVM Validium, Polygon zkEVM, Polygon Miden and various customizable L2 permutations using the CDK, together “Polygon Architecture”), the ApeCoin ecosystem will be primed for tremendous growth.

With thousands of dApps and millions of daily transactions, the Polygon Architecture is by far the most robust and stable Ethereum L2 scaling solution. With ApeCoin already bridged onto Polygon PoS, it is already available to be used by all dApps across Polygon Architecture – including for gas and staking in relation to dApps built on the proposed ApeChain (see “Platforms and Technologies” below).

It is well-documented that mainstream adoption of blockchain technology and Web3 is underway, and the Polygon Architecture is helping to bring blockchain to “Internet-scale.” This is across verticals and use cases, including gaming (Square Enix), loyalty rewards (Starbucks), phygital goods and co-creation (Nike), digital avatars (Reddit), self-expression and identity (L’Oreal) and the most adopted Web3-native use cases (from defi, like Uniswap and Aave, to the open metaverse, like Sandbox and Decentraland). As such, the Polygon Architecture is the most well-suited ecosystem for ApeCoin DAO to launch “community-led initiatives that drive culture forward into the metaverse” and Polygon Labs is the most well-suited entity to help ApeCoin DAO to stimulate the growth of ApeCoin-integrated projects and ApeChain-related public goods.

OVERALL COST

As laid out in the preceding sections of this AIP, we estimate that the costs for building, deploying and maintaining ApeChain for one year, will be a maximum of $200,000 USD. None of these expenses would be paid to Polygon Labs or any affiliate of Polygon Labs. Instead, they would be used to pay Gateway.fm and its infrastructure costs.

Once ApeChain is built, deployed and maintained, the DAO (as a self-governing entity) will decide for itself how it will fund and maintain ApeChain in subsequent years. Possibilities include negotiating with the Gateway.fm on a contract extension or fielding proposals from community members with sufficient expertise who are willing to contribute to ApeChain’s maintenance, for example.

AIP-339: ApeCoin AI Remix Contest

ABSTRACT

The following proposal presents a new mobile and web based music platform that empowers collectors to easily create music and content with a AI companion NFT on the Korus platform. Pixelynx, in partnership with renowned stars deadmau5 and Richie Hawtin have supported Pixelynx in building this platform which is now powered by a growing library of licensed content and AI models from iconic and emerging artists and record labels.

Our vision is to create a new economy for the music industry that helps artists, fans and collectors build real value together.

We believe music is a powerful medium to build community and unlock new forms of expression and growth. ApeCoin DAO is at the forefront of building a new economy that puts creators and collectors first! Music is evolving and new ways of creating, releasing and monetising music are here. The Korus platform has been designed to create a fairer way for artists, fans and collectors to grow the value of the music industry together by blurring the lines between music, gaming, AI and Web3. Korus AI companion owners can remix and even release AI generative songs in collaboration with their favourite artists, labels, brands and communities.

image2

This proposal presents ApeCoin holders the opportunity to benefit from exclusive ApeCoin tailored features that will deliver interactive music experiences across the metaverse and beyond. Korus was built to revolutionise the way music is collected, created, performed, monetised and shared. The Korus x ApeCoin DAO partnership aims to bring new music artists into the Yugaverse and support the ecosystem by enabling cutting edge music creation utility that is fueled by $APEcoin.

BENEFIT TO APECOIN ECOSYSTEM
  • A new $APEcoin utility is established
  • Opportunity to win $APEcoin prizes
  • Opportunity to win Music NFT’s
  • Exclusive KORUS features token gated for $APEcoin holders
  • Exclusive access to Artist DNA from renowned artists such as deadmau5 and Richie Hawtin

OVERALL COST

*$100.000 $APE for the competition reward pool. All $ape added to the reward pool will be used as rewards for those that participate in this campaign.

Music NFT prizes and All other costs (Ape.Kor NFT production and distribution, new functionalities in the system, marketing, community activations) will be handled by Pixelynx.

*Please note, we are open to feedback and discussion around the competition reward pool amount, we see this as a great incentive to provoke creative participation but seek collaborative understanding here from Apecoin DAO’s perspective also.

AIP-336: PR Agency for ApeCoin-funded Projects and immersion targeting 

ABSTRACT
  • Found a group of connectors (PR) to interconnect and build stories that re-educate the mainstream and connect to big brands, that talk directly to the Bored Ape ecosystem and the ApeCoin community and its funded projects.
  • Give builders the option to expand their offerings through targeted connections from a group of people with PR expertise, free of charge.
  • We will work with builders, the brand, and the ecosystem to drive, connect, and convey construction more expansively.

  • Individual connections are also being put on the agenda, for builds from the team itself, such as connecting the collaboration between ApeCoin and Fortnite shortly.
  • It is essential for voters to read the comments on the proposal, where many of their common questions may have already been addressed.
BENEFIT TO APECOIN ECOSYSTEM

The best way to tell the ApeCoin story is through targeted communication through its community and funded projects. The substance of the proposals is ApeCoinDAO’s most compelling and accessible narratives.

OVERALL COST

90.000 ApeCoin, to be provide and cover administration, compensation and fees for the next 3 months of the data detailed in the proposal.

AIP-349: ApeCoin Events Hub on cryptoevents.xyz 

ABSTRACT

There is currently a gap between the NFT/creative/community crowd & and the developer, builder & investor crowd within the crypto community.

A dedicated section for ApeCoin holders and lurkers within Cryptoevents.xyz will promote ApeCoin-related events and bring an understanding of the different ApeCoin initiatives.

This AIP provides for $20,000 in APE to build a custom ApeCoin events sheet within Cryptoevents.xyz, ApeCoin logo display based on RSVP’d ApeCoin holders. The custom designed ApeCoin section will help the ApeCoin community increase reach beyond “the NFT crowd” to other audiences within crypto. This initiative will further ApeCoin’s visibility and relevance within the broader web3 ecosystem.

image image2

Success will be measured by the volume of ApeCoin related events and traffic cryptoevents.xyz brings back to the ApeCoin community.

BENEFIT TO APECOIN ECOSYSTEM

The implementation of ApeCoin Events Hub on Cryptoevents.xyz offers a number of benefits to the ApeCoin Ecosystem:

  • Exposure to a brand new crypto audience: By integrating with an existing web3 platform with an existing audience, ApeCoin events will be more exposed to newcomers and more likely to gain meaningful adoption. After all, cryptoevents.xyz website visitors are crypto native, which makes them the perfect ApeCoin target audience
  • Increased engagement with existing members: ApeCoin holders will have a centralized hub to discover, participate in, or host ApeCoin events that advance web3 culture.
  • Easy discovery for non-holders, who will be able to access this page and learn more about ApeCoin and its initiatives. It is critical such a page is not token-gated and easy to access in order to increase ApeCoin’s reach.
  • The ApeCoin logo will be automatically be displayed on all major events where at least one ApeCoin holder is present, further providing an ongoing reminder that ApeCoin is an important participant not just in DAOs & NFTs, but also in the web3 builder ecosystem, attracting new collaborations and investors.
  • Encourage more collaboration between various segments of the web3 economy. By furthering the exposure of the ApeCoin community to a broader and more diverse crypto audience, this proposal will also indirectly help other ApeCoin initiatives, like the ETHGlobal sponsorships. For many crypto developers, cryptoevents.xyz is the best source of information on upcoming ETHGlobal hackathons. Through this partnership, ApeCoin’s participation will be further highlighted.
  • Accurate insights on who ApeCoin holders are and thus how to best serve them, because Cryptoevents.xyz allows attendees to RSVP to events with their Twitter socials

image3 image4

OVERALL COST

In summary, the creation of a dedicated events page for ApeCoin holders on cryptoevents.xyz, as well as the prominent display of the ApeCoinDAO logo as a company attending main events will benefit the ApeCoin community by enhancing visibility, fostering engagement, and promoting cross-community collaboration within the web3 ecosystem.

We respectfully request a grant of $20,000 from the ApeCoin community to support this initiative, which aligns seamlessly with ApeCoin’s mission and values.

AIP-364: The Battle for Goblin Town - A Bored Game 

ABSTRACT

We are near completion for an on-chain strategy game inspired by Settlers of Catan, titled “The Battle for Goblin Town.”

See Twitterimage Actual gameplay footage. Image shows resource tiles, settlements, roads and in-progress battles

BFGT combines the joy and nostalgia of a tabletop experience with the ownership and utility of web3, with a strategic decision-making system driven by economic game theory.

Our initial plan was to independently launch the game in a more open manner but after discussions with key ApeCoin DAO members it became clear that our game could provide significant value to this community by making it exclusive to ApeCoin.

BENEFIT TO APECOIN ECOSYSTEM

Our intention with this AIP is to create an economically self-sustaining video game that lives on for a long time. We see this game providing real utility and enjoyment to the ApeCoin DAO and ApeCoin holders while introducing new users to the ApeCoin Ecosystem.

  • DAO REVENUE:
-15% of the mint and ongoing game revenue will be returned directly to the ApeCoin DAO.
-15% of ApeCoin generated during mint and ongoing game revenue will be burned (that is, transferred to a dead address, effectively removing it from circulation and reducing the supply). This creates what we believe is the first true ApeCoin Sink.
-20% of ongoing game revenue will go towards supporting future prize pool (or burn).
  • VOTER AIRDROP: Voters who vote on this proposal will receive an airdrop of NFT Chests at a rate of 1 crate per 1,000 votes). Chests contain gameplay pieces: screelings, bosses, structures and cards. These pieces are NFTs that can either be used in-game or traded. Regarding the airdrop, the original holders will receive the crates, NOT the people they have delegated their ApeCoin to. To address this we will use the karma api to track delegates https://documenter.getpostman.com/view/26295147/2s93RTPrfg
  • $APE EXCLUSIVE: $APE will be used exclusively as the as the currency for minting and any non-resource purchases to buy into the game
  • For example: during gameplay, $APE can be used to buy card packs (card previews below)

THE MINT The mint will be a 72 hour “open edition” to get crates for your initial game pieces. (Only one crate is required to play, but we expect most users will want to start with multiple crates).

Expand the ApeCoin gaming ecosystem

  • Establish another strong Web3 game in the ApeCoin ecosystem
  • Provide diversity to the ecosystem by releasing a new genre of Web3 game
  • Growth in community through new players, cross-promotion with other ApeCoin games, and improved user retention

Marketing

  • Improve brand visibility and attract a wider audience
  • Extend ApeCoin to a new demographic of players
  • Use of ApeCoin mark The Battle for Goblin Town is directly aligned with the APE Community’s vision to be the foundation of Web3 culture through gaming, arts, and entertainment. We designed a game that embodies Web3 culture by focusing on the following goals:

Engaging and Fun

  • The main motivation for developing The Battle for Goblin Town was to produce an entertaining, engaging, and social game. Never. Be. Bored.
  • We wanted to capture the same feeling that you get from playing any classic tabletop board game with your friends and family. A family that games together, stays together!
  • The core game loop is simple: Take over Goblin Town!
  • Players may accomplish this in many different ways, from forming alliances with their closest friends, negotiating trades with their neighbors, and taking calculated risks to expand your territory or destroy your enemies’ territories. 
Innovation
  • On-chain gaming
    • NFT integration to provide true ownership of game assets
  • New gaming genre that combines strategy, social interaction, and “yield-farming”-style mechanisms

Play-to-Earn Mechanics

  • Collectors
    • Unique and various rarity NFT collections between Goblin Bosses and Screelings (see photos below)
  • Competitors
    • Establish prize pool to reward top players after each season
  • Opportunist
    • Players may take advantage of economic opportunities on secondary markets by landing rare Bosses and Screelings, or farming booster packs
OVERALL COST

TOTAL: $2m (USD) in ApeCoin

  • 1.5m (USD) in ApeCoin
  • 500k (USD) in ApeCoin to be distributed as a prize pool across the first 3 seasons.

This AIP aims to build Apecoin DAO smart contract Wallets for GameFi NFts and establish a Lend assets & rewarding vault for the Game community.

Apecoin DAO Wallets wanted to implement active user engagement in a Game community by enabling GameFi Segment with the DAO and smart contract Wallets. With the rise of NFT-based P2E games, it’s crucial to build a community-driven ecosystem for NFT assets management in order to effectively rotate the assets among the active community members to Maximize the NFT DEFI potential.

DAO wallets are structured to exclusively enable active wallets to retain assets for continued participation in the game. On inactivity, The DAO will conduct votes on idle assets to withdraw them from the member wallet into the assets vault, reallocating them to other members. This approach increases NFT scarcity and price in the market which will eventually attract more buyers and investment in the DAO-driven community. Furthermore, the DAO will offer incentives to participating voters, creating a constructive cycle of engagement.

All the DAO processes will run on a predefined set of rules to streamline community governance. Seamless management of NFT assets through the DAO platform sustains the blockchain-based games ecosystem.

AIP-346: Monthly Laughing Ape Stand-Up Comedy Show Utility for all $APE Holders 

ABSTRACT

If you have $APE in your wallet, you can access the shows, if not, you better get some, sucka. This AIP offers a fun, additional utility to $APE holders. This is a monthly event that every $APE holder from all over the world can participate in.

Any of our normie friends who want to get in will have to buy and hold $APE to see the show. And with our tech partners NiftyKit (AIP-88) we can make that easy for them.

BENEFIT TO APECOIN ECOSYSTEM

Laughing Ape, INC will bring needed laughter and fun to the DAO. It’s also an opportunity for $APE holders from around the world to gather for a series of exclusive events fostering camaraderie between DAO members. But look, In between shows y’all can go back to yelling at each other over governance, ok?

Here’s how our Bored Silly AIP fits in with the guiding values of APE Foundation:
Boldness: Ape Foundation doesn’t shy away from the weird, the hard, or the new.
The Weird: Laughing Ape makes comedians perform live in front of a global, online audience while live-streaming in front of Anon MFers who wear Ape PFPs. You’re gonna tell me that’s not weird?!
The New: Laughing Ape is pioneering new ways to integrate live comedy performance and blockchain technology.
The Hard: Comedy is hard and so are we. We’re hard AF!
Equality: One APE equals one APE.
You’ve got 1 $APE, you get into the show. You’ve got 0 ape? GTFO and go buy one.
Transparency: Processes and decisions are shared openly with the community.
We’ll share our decision making process in how and why we book our shows the way we do. You’re probably not interested but we’re going to tell you anyway!
Collective Responsibility: We leave everything better than we found it.
Laughing Ape will make the DAO fun for its members. Yes, there is a lot of seriousness needed in the DAO but how about some unseriousness as well? We’ll leave you all in way better spirits than when we found you.

Persistence: Success is an ouroboros, not a straight line.
Laughing Ape, INC launched in early 2022 to a big, fat yawn in the bear market. We didn’t care, we didn’t fold and we’re not going anywhere. We have a mission to bring comedy and comedians to Web3 and by gosh we’re going to do it whether you like it or not.

OVERALL COST

We aim to raise $180K USD in $APE to fund a year’s worth of events, covering our talent, technology, production, and marketing budgets.
