ON THE BALLOT: This AIP Aims To Mix $Ape, Art, And Augmented Reality Tech
There is an Ape Improvement Proposal on the ballot this week that aims to mix $Ape, art and augmented reality!
AIP-283, titled 'Ape.AR: The AR Launchpad, Powered by ApeCoin,' is an ecosystem fund allocation proposal written by ApeCoin DAO Contributor and CEO of AR/T HOUSE, 'the most advanced app-less AR tech on the market,' Justin Fredericks, also known as JustFred.
“Ape.AR empowers (i) creative entrepreneurs to commercialize their IP (i.e. motion graphic BAYC apparel) with AR, resulting in (ii) a new form of augmented utility for their collectors and (iii) a new use for ApeCoin, which will exclusively power all of the transactions,” JustFred wrote.
“This opportunity to integrate cutting edge AR tech, which would otherwise be cost prohibitive for independent entrepreneurs & artists, effectively drives culture forward into a physical-meets-digital, blended reality.”
If passed, JustFred will invite the $Ape community to apply to the newly created Ape.Ar Launchpad. Then he will select three artists/ builders per quarter over the next year and he will help them integrate augmented reality and $Ape into their business.
“The culmination of each launchpad will consist of the augmented collection drops on the Ape.AR website, using $APE as the exclusive payment method, along with marketing campaigns both within & outside Web3,” JustFred wrote.
In total JustFred is asking the ApeCoin DAO to allocate $300,000 USD to AIP-283. With the money JustFred will hire a Community & Outreach Director, a Web Designer, a Program Coordinator, and pay for the Lifetime AR Licenses of the 12 project’s in the launchpad system.
The window to vote on AIP-283 is currently open and ApeCoin DAO Contributors have until next Wednesday, August 23rd, to cast their coins.
