MEET THE CANDIDATE: TFG Is Running For Metaverse Working Group Steward!

Updated: Dec 2, 2023

This Bored Ape Yacht Club member has spent the last decade working to make the metaverse a reality as a builder and a professional gamer. Now, TFG wants to build upon the experiences he has had and become one of the ApeCoin DAO’s first Metaverse Working Group Stewards and help push the DAO into the digital world!

The winter election season of 2023 is underway at the ApeCoin DAO, with 12 contributors running to be the community’s first two Metaverse working Group Stewards.

Among the candidates vying for this position is TFG

“My motivation for pursuing this role is deeply rooted in my passion for both the gaming and web3 industries,” TFG wrote on his candidate page. “With my entire professional career and childhood immersed in the gaming world, I am uniquely equipped to excel in this position and contribute to elevating the ApeCoin DAO’s metaverse and gaming initiatives. A key aspiration of mine is to bridge the worlds of web3 and gaming. I aim to challenge and transform the prevailing skepticism among traditional gamers about web3 and blockchain technologies, shifting the perception from negative to positive. I am committed to leading this change. Joining the ApeCoin DAO as a steward in the metaverse working group represents a significant step towards realizing this vision, uniting my twin passions and altering the narrative for the better.

To find out more about TFG and why he’s the right $Ape to be a Metaverse Working Group Steward, the Bored Ape Gazette reached out to him for an interview. Check it out below:
