ThankApe Awarded 20 $Ape Merchants With Grants Courtesy Of The ApeCoin DAO! See Who Won:
ThankApe’s Merchant PropHouse contests came to an end last night and the ApeCoin community selected twenty projects to receive $Ape grants for their work!
ThankApe, an ApeCoin DAO sponsored project that aims to reward active contributors in the ApeCoin ecosystem, teamed up with PropHouse earlier this month to hold three builders contests and reward merchants who accept $Ape as a payment option with a grant courtesy of the ApeCoin DAO!
"Why we’re doing this," thankApe tweeted at the beginning of the competition. "1. We believe in the power of #ApeCoinMerchants to start a thriving $APE payments ecosystem. 2. We will recognize merchants for providing excellent goods & services! 3. We need diverse goods & services for a thriving DAO & to show the utility of ApeCoin!"
ThankApe's merchant PropHouse competition featured three different categories: 1. Services, 2. Physical Goods, and 3. Digital Goods, to reward creators across the $Ape ecosystem.
After a two-and-a-half-week entry period, with 101 proposals submitted across the three contests and 3,474 votes cast, the community selected 20 winning builders! Check out the winners from each category below:
