The ApeCoin DAO is currently voting an Ape Improvement Proposal that aims to create a series of animated interviews with ApeCoin DAO contributors.
AIP-151 titled “ApeCoin DAO Animated TV Series” is an Ecosystem fund allocation proposal written by ApeCoin DAO Contributor HeffJobbs.
“This proposal presents the idea that NFTV Network produces an animated interview series to feature ApeCoin holders on a weekly basis,” HeffJobbs wrote.
NFTV AKA Non-Fungible TV on twitter is a platform that streams, “24/7 community generated NFT, Fashion, Entertainment & News,” according to the site’s Twitter account @nftvnet.
In total, HeffJobbs and NFTV are asking the ApeCoin DAO to allocate 38,319 $Ape or $206,922 USD to create a series of 24, 2-3 minute-long animated, “interview style episodes” with DAO contributors over the next six months. Take a look at the budget breakdown below:
The Bored Ape Gazette recently reached out to NFTV and interviewed them about their proposal. Find out more about their AIP and read why they think the $Ape community should support their plan to create a series of animated interviews!
1. how did NFTV start and how did you get into Web3 and the DAO?
“NFTV (Non-Fungible Television) is a decentralized platform that utilizes the power of blockchain technology and the concept of a DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) to create a new form of decentralized streaming TV. Our team got into Web3 and the DAO because we believe in the potential of decentralized technology to create a more fair and open internet.”
2. Tell me more about your idea for an interview style show? What will it be like?
“Our idea for an interview style show is to feature guests from the Web3 and decentralized technology community and discuss the latest developments, ideas and projects. The show will be interactive, engaging, and educational.”
3. Why is story telling important in web3?
“Storytelling is important in Web3 because it helps to connect people to the technology and the potential it holds. It allows people to understand the impact of decentralized technology on their lives and the world. “
4. Where do you see NFTV and the DAO's relationship a year from now?
“We see NFTV and the DAO's relationship growing stronger a year from now, as more people become aware of the platform and the benefits it offers. We also see the platform expanding to include more features and content.”
5. What should the DAO know about NFTV before it votes on Wednesday?
“The DAO should know that NFTV is a unique and innovative platform that offers a new way for people to access and experience streaming TV. It is a decentralized platform that is owned and governed by its community.”
