ApeCoin is an ERC-20 governance and utility token for decentralized communities building at the forefront of culture and web3. Yuga Labs, the company behind the Bored Ape Yacht Club ecosystem, is a contributor to the APE ecosystem and is adopting ApeCoin as the primary token for the BAYC ecosystem as well as upcoming metaverse and gaming experiences. APE adoption will be driven largely by communities who are driving culture forward through NFTs, art, gaming, entertainment, community and events.
ApeCoin serves several purposes including:
Best Consumer Use Case
Best use of ApeCoin in a dApp or application. This includes things like NFTs, payments, gaming, commerce experiences, etc.
Boader scope for projects that are at the cutting edge and building things highly relevant for the ApeCoin community, which centers around NFTs and gaming. This could include things like improved security via ERC-4337, novel NFT games via ERC-6551, or new DAO tooling.
