ApeCoin is an ERC-20 governance and utility token. It will serve as the native gas token for ApeChain. Web3 builders and creators including Yuga Labs, the company that founded Bored Ape Yacht Club, use ApeCoin to power their economies. ApeCoin adoption is driven largely by communities who are driving culture forward through NFTs, art, gaming, entertainment, community and events. The ApeCoin community governs itself via the ApeCoin DAO, the decentralized governance framework that supports the Ecosystem Fund. The ApeCoinDAO serves to empower a decentralized community building at the forefront of web3. ApeCoin serves several purposes including: Transaction fees - transactions on ApeChain are natively paid in $APE Governance - allows ApeCoin holders to participate in the ApeCoin DAO Unification of Spend - shared and open currency across more NFT native communities Access - exclusive games, merch, events, and services Incentivization - tool for third-party developers to incorporate APE into their services, games, and other projects Jenkins is Apechain's public alpha testnet. It mirrors the general vision of the Apechain network, which is an L3 on top of Arbitrum. Apecoin is the native gas token and devs can onboard onto it and use it like any other testnet like bridge to it, deploy smart contracts, connect it to your Metamask, etc.
