ON THE BALLOT: This AIP Aims To Create A Network Of In Real Life ApeCoin Events
There is an Ape Improvement Proposal on the ballot this week at the ApeCoin DAO that aims to onboard new people into the $Ape ecosystem via a decentralized network of in real life events.
AIP-226 titled “ApeCoinIRL - Decentralized Events Network,” is an ecosystem allocation fund proposal written by Bored Ape Yacht Club member and ApeCoin DAO contributor SSP1111.
“ApeCoinIRL is bringing the power of local, in-person gatherings to the forefront of the ApeCoin Ecosystem," SSP wrote. “By establishing a Decentralized Events Network, we’re creating a seamless onboarding ramp for those entering Web3 and the ApeCoin ecosystem.”
To create this “decentralized events network,” SSP plans to work with ApeCoin DAO contributors from around the world.
“When the DAO was founded, a clear directive was issued to promote Web3 culture through the power of EVENTS,” SSP wrote. “The founders also recognized the value of in-person social gatherings in ensuring our growth and sustainability. This proposal puts forth several fresh ideas to the DAO, which includes establishing a network that creates multiple opportunities for members to participate in local activities, regardless of their location. This by default enhances diversity, equity, and inclusivity within the DAO.”
In total, SSP is asking the DAO to allocate 570,619 $Ape or $2,396,000 USD to create and fund the ApeCoinIRL network that will distribute$Ape to Dao contributors to host in real life events. “85% of Grant goes to Local DAO Ambassadors for 200+ Local Events,” SSP wrote.
Further, SSP is also asking the DAO for permission for the event network to use the ApeCoin DAO’s logo for merch and for the DAO to post about upcoming events on social media.
