GET TO KNOW THE CANDIDATE: Buuvei Is Running For Governance Working Group Steward

The ApeCoin DAO’s second election season is in full swing and while many $Ape holders know every nominee’s positions and what they plan to do if elected, not everyone knows the candidates on a personal level!

In an effort to get to know who is running for $Ape Office, the Bored Ape Gazette recently sent out a nine-item questionnaire to each candidate to find out more about their Web3 journey to get to know the person behind the keyboard!

One of those candidates is Buuvei who is running for a Steward position on the ApeCoin DAO’s newly formed Governance Working Group.

“I really do hope you vote for me. I never forget the people that supported me from the start, and my early collectors will tell you that,” Buuvei said when asked why the community should elect him. “One day, I will be a leading figure in the space, and I hope that journey starts with the Governance Working group, an area where I am highly passionate and have great interest to learn, which is proven by my Corporate Governance training & certificate I received in 2022.”
