MEET THE CANDIDATE: 0xAndy Is Running For Special Council!

Over the last 20 years, Bored Ape Yacht Club member 0xAndy has worked across Asia in various fields, ranging from tech to luxury, networking with people from all walks of life and learning about the markets. Because of his past experience, 0xAndy believes that Asia will play a crucial role in the future of Web3 and that the ApeCoin DAO could benefit a lot by focusing on Asian communities. That’s why he decided to ape into the ApeCoin DAO’s Special Council race this winter!


The winter election season of 2023 is underway at the ApeCoin DAO, with 27 contributors officially running to replace BoredApeG, Gerry, and VeraTheApe on the DAO's Special Council in 2024.


Among the candidates vying for a position on the ApeCoin DAO's Special Council is 0xAndy.


“The  3 main reasons why I can be the best choice:1. Rooted in Asia: I’m based in Hong Kong, the new web3 innovation hub,” 0xAndy wrote. “I’m originally from Taiwan and currently core team at Ape 101 Taiwan (@BaycTaiwan). Decent personal and group networks built in Asia across Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Singapore, Korea, etc. 2. Hybrid web3/web2 experience: Being a web2 old man jumping into web3 rabbit hole, I’m well educated in the good and bad from both sides.. and 3. Ape till I die.”


To find out more about 0xAndy’s Special Council candidacy, his past experiences, and how he would bring $Ape to Asia, the Bored Ape Gazette reached out to him for an interview. Check it out below:


1. In a sentence or two what is your candidacy all about?


“My mission is to “be the voices in Asia to connect with the West”, with my solid web2 and web3 experiences and network.”


 2. When and why did you decide to ape into the Special Council race?


“When I was recruited to Ape 101 Taiwan (@BaycTaiwan) about 1.5 years ago, my mission was to connect Taiwan and Chinese apes with the world, so ever since then, I have been preparing myself in network and experiences. However, it’s not until post HK ApeFest that it came to my realization that this is the right time to fulfill my mission because I saw the issue of how not having enough Asia voices may negatively impact the DAO’s path.”


 3. What makes you the right $Ape for Special Council? How has your past prepared you for this role?


“I believe the reason for having 5 seats in SC is to make sure we have diversified background and experiences, and that’s where I believe I can fill in.  My web3 network and web2 business acumen for 20 years can well balance the SC profile and bring in diverse perspectives and approaches.

More details below:


4. What would you like to accomplish during your term?


“My goals are in 3 folds: Widen quality awareness, deepen use cases, link talents. I’m most passionate about people connection, and that’s why my goals are more external facing driven to support the DAO.”

 5. Where would you like to see the DAO a year from now?


“50% more AIPs, 100% more unique wallets for voting. Streamlined and faster process of AIP submission and review”


 6. What are your thoughts and views on an ApeChain?


“Apechain is inevitable to build a thriving ecosystem; however, who to build it (DAO or Yuga) is in question, and where to build is another.”

 7. What’s your favorite book, movie, and show?


Book: Who Moved My Cheese

Movie: The Shawshank Redemption 

Show: The Miserables


 8. Do you have anything else you’d like to add or say?


“Ape till I die.”
