Get To Know The Special Council Of The Ape Foundation AKA The DAO's Board.
As part of its ApeCoin announcement and DAO structure, the Bored Ape Yacht Club introduced the community to the Ape Foundation and a special council of the Ape Foundation dubbed the DAO’s Board.
“The APE Foundation is the steward of ApeCoin, the BAYC wrote. “It is not an overseer, but the base layer on which ApeCoin holders in the ApeCoin DAO can build. The Foundation facilitates decentralized and community-led governance and is designed to become more decentralized over time. It is tasked with administering the decisions of the ApeCoin DAO, and is responsible for day-to-day administration, bookkeeping, project management, and other tasks that ensure the DAO community’s ideas have the support they need to become a reality.”
The BAYC’s ApeCoin site goes onto explain that along with the Ape Foundation and DAO, there is also a special council of the Ape Foundation known as the Board. The Board, “provides, at the behest of the ApeCoin DAO members, oversight of the Foundation administrators. The purpose of the Board is to administer DAO proposals and serve the vision of the community. It meets on proposals requiring administrative review under ApeCoin DAO rules. The initial Board serves a term of six months, after which DAO members will vote annually on Board members.”
The First Board is made up of five members from various areas of tech, crypto, and gaming.
