These Devs Want To Help Builders In The $Ape Ecosystem Make Their Games Powered By $Ape

After discovering the challenges that builders face when integrating blockchain and $Ape into their games, these gaming developers teamed up to submit an Ape Improvement Proposal with the goal of creating an easy-to-use platform to help make more games powered by $Ape!

AIP-326 titled ‘Platform to Enable ApeCoin Powered Payments & Rewards for Apps & Games,’ is an Ape Improvement Proposal written by ApeCoin DAO Contributor and CR3 Labs Founder Mike, Vora Labs’ Leo, and Solidityio’s Alex McCurry.

In their proposal, Mike explained that he and the team discovered it wasn't easy to integrate $Ape into games while working on adding the coin to Vora Labs' Flappy Koda.

“Through first-hand experience we found that the current SDK landscape is too complex; what appears to be a simple task of adding ApeCoin payments into a game can actually require months of development time and substantial web3 development knowledge,” Mike wrote. “To add more complex, but necessary features, such as the ability to mint NFTs inside a game, can take 6 months or more. We believe that creating a simple turnkey tool kit will expand the web3 gaming ecosystem and the adoption of ApeCoin more rapidly.”

Following that realization, they decided that they wanted to build the infrastructure that would help other devs make their games powered by ApeCoin.

“We’re proposing the creation of a low-code platform to enable all of the required infrastructure for ApeCoin powered payments and rewards for games,” Mike wrote. “Although the primary focus is browser and mobile games, the platform is also applicable to any web or mobile application.”

Mike and his team estimate that it will take 9 months and $480,000 USD worth of $Ape to build this turnkey toolkit for the community.

“We want to empower the 'open metaverse', as stated by Yuga Labs, and give everyone easy tools to enable ApeCoin-powered games,” Mike wrote.

The window to vote on AIP-326 is currently open and ApeCoin DAO Contributors have until next Wednesday, November 1st, to cast their coins and vote on this proposal.

The Bored Ape Gazette is working to find out more about AIP-326 and will bring you an interview with Mike later this week. Stay tuned for updates!
