ON THE BALLOT: AIP-123 Aims To Build A "Multi-Language Web Hub" For The $Ape Community
There is an Ape Improvement Proposal on the ballot this week that hopes to create a place for holders to get news and information about the Asia-Pacific $Ape community in several different languages.
AIP-123 titled “Apeverse - A Multi-language Web Hub for Ape Ecosystem and $APE Holders,” is an ecosystem fund allocation proposal by Bored Ape Yacht Club member ChrisL AKA 0xChrisL on Twitter.
“Due to the large number and wide distribution of Ape community members, information such as news and activities cannot be effectively conveyed because of language and geographical restrictions,” ChrisL wrote. “Therefore, we want to build an Ape ecosystem website named Apeverse to deliver Ape-related information to ApeCoin holders in a timely manner, and to show the development of the Asia-Pacific community to $APE global holders.”
ChrisL went on to explain the four key benefits that Apeverse would have to the Yuga Labs ecosystem at large:
Apeverse will be a multi-language website, starting with English, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. More languages will be added as our community expands to new areas.
2. Information Hub
We want to make Apeverse an integration of all Ape-related information. News and activities across different geographical areas will be presented. Real-time statistics of ApeCoin and Ape NFTs will be shown for users to understand the trend in Ape markets.
3. Merchandise and Payments
An online store will be on Apeverse selling derivative products designed by the community. We will implement ApeCoin payment system ($APE only) in the store and partner with events and exhibitions to use $APE for ticket sales and other payment scenarios.
4. Community Engagement
We wish to make Apeverse a place where members can interact with each other. There will be a chat module on different pages for viewers to share their opinions about ApeCoin and Ape NFT, or to match product designers with NFT owners. There will also be links to live AIPs, active votes, and $APE staking (once the function is live).”
In total, ChrisL is asking the ApeCoin DAO to allocate $164,000 USD to create and fund Apeverse’s first year. Check out ChrisL’s full cost breakdown below:
The window to vote on AIP-123 opens tonight at 9 P.M. EST. $Ape holders will have until Wednesday December 7th to cast their ballots.
