Q&A: Raffle Platform Eesee Wants To Partner With The DAO and Gamify/ Reward Participation
This week, the gaming and raffling platform Eesee laid its cards on the table and introduced an Ape Improvement Proposal aimed at establishing an official partnership between the platform and the ApeCoin DAO!
AIP-301 titled “[Eesee-ApeCoin] A Collaboration for Community Engagement and NFT Accessibility,” is a brand category proposal written by ApeCoin DAO contributor and Eesee CEO, Vova.eesee.
“This proposal introduces a strategic alliance between Eesee, a gamified NFT platform, and ApeCoin DAO,” Vova wrote. “The partnership is designed to democratize access to high-value NFTs, stimulate community interaction, and inspire active involvement in ApeCoin governance, and enhance the visibility of ApeCoin’s sub-communities.”
To achieve this, Vova recommends a twofold approach. The first involves a quest system, similar to "Coinbase Earn," designed to inform people about the ApeCoin DAO. The second approach consists of token-gated contests accessible only to active ApeCoin DAO contributors who have reached various DAO participation levels.
In AIP-301, Vova and his Eesee platform are not seeking any monetary allocation from the ApeCoin DAO, instead they would like to establish a formal partnership with the community.
If passed, Vova believes that his platform could have exclusive drops for $Ape holders and launch educational quests based on $Ape later this year.
To find out more about Eesee and why the platform wants to partner with $Ape, the Bored Ape Gazette reached out to Vova for an interview. Check it out below:
Can you tell me what your AIP is all about in a sentence or two?
“We want to partner with ApeCoin DAO in order to motivate users to enter the market, educate themselves about the market and lower the cost barrier to enter the market using Eesee’s gamified features and partnership opportunities with ApeCoin DAO.”
For those who don’t know, what is Eesee and how did it begin?
“Eesee is a next-gen gamified NFTFi & SocialFi platform and Digital Assets Marketplace that accelerates sales, provides additional liquidity and trading volume to the digital assets market, lowers cost-barrier to enter the market and facilitates community growth, helping to speed up the process of Mass Adoption using the unique protocol. It all started by pure will of opening up a market to bigger audience and bigger variety of users, that’s what we are doing with help of our unique gamified approach and our protocol.”
What inspired you to write this AIP?
“Our Missions: Lower cost-barrier for users to enter the NFT and Web3 markets. Help to fasten Mass Adoption. Provide additional liquidity to the digital assets market. Accelerate sales. Help artists to get noticed. Facilitate the community growth."
Assuming this passes what can the DAO expect from this partnership?
“We expect support from the community, co-marketing opportunities, exclusive drops for users and various other features that will help to onboard new audience to the market.”

“Because we have a unique product that is going to be the next big thing on the market and we know that by joining forces with the DAO we can create additional value to the whole community and maybe even bring new wave to the market.”
Where do you see this partnership a year from now?
“DAO members will see the value and it will lead to a long-term partnership and maybe to an exclusive drops and events by ApeCoin DAO x Eesee. We see a lot of various ways of possible collaboration that can happen and bring value.”
