Following the budget’s approval, the Bored Ape Gazette reached out to the DAO’s three Governance Working Group Stewards for comment. See what they said below:
“Tough to put all of this in words right now to be honest. I’m really quite proud. We put everything we had into this proposal, and it wasn’t easy finding the right balance combining the Working Group’s originally-written scope with this fresh spin on Governance. One more, which will be really important: I’m also especially proud of the strategy that went into our campaign after the Machi vote. It’s a much different approach playing from behind, and even more-so from that far back… We executed flawlessly and the support from our friends and community who stepped up did the rest. We wouldn’t be here without them.”
“A combination of excitement and relief. But mostly feeling very grateful to the community for backing us up and supporting us with their votes. It’s been amazing to connect with more DAO members who are excited to participate and cultivate ideas together. There’s so much talent and passion coming out from the ApeCoin DAO As for what’s next, we continue looking for tools and solutions to improve the dao. I’m definitely looking forward to the next election cycle starting Nov 1. It’s going to be major in Q4!”
