Q&A: This AIP Aims To Add An $Ape Price Bot To The DAO's Discord. Find Out More About AIP- 306:
There is an Ape Improvement Proposal on the ballot this week that hopes to make it easier for holders to access important $Ape metrics within the DAO’s Discord sever.
AIP-306 titled ‘ApeCoin Price Tracking Bot,’ is an information proposal written by ApeCoin DAO Contributor Mauricio Londer.
“This project proposes the development of a Discord bot dedicated to real-time tracking of ApeCoin prices,” Londer wrote. “In addition to providing information on the current price, daily, monthly, and annual percentage changes, trading volume, market capitalization, and changes from the all-time high price, the bot is also capable of generating comparative charts between ApeCoin and Ethereum over a seven-day period.”
If passed, the addition of an ApeCoin Price bot to the DAO’s Discord will not cost the community anything and the bot can be fully operational within three weeks of this AIP passing, according to Londer.
To find out more about AIP-306 and the impact a price bot will have on the DAO, the Bored Ape Gazette reached out to Londer for an interview. Check it out below:
