Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) is no longer strange to those who are fans of NFT. Built on the Ethereum ecosystem, launched April, 2022, BAYC has quickly grown massively as the most valuable NFT project by market cap.
What is ApeCoin (APE)?
ApeCoin is the result of a long time spent with the community of BAYC and Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC) - 2 of the most popular NFT collections on the Ethereum ecosystem. ApeCoin will serve as a community-led & decentralized protocol to “metaverse up” real-world operations.
What makes ApeCoin stand out?
ApeCoin is supported by ApeCoin DAO. It will be empowered for the community to lead and build metaverse events, games or blockchain services.
ApeCoin DAO aims to strike a balance between productivity and governance that can facilitate good and viable product launches, which aligns with the DAO's motivation and values.
The main goal of ApeCoin is also to develop APE into a token that is used to build a decentralized community for the Web3 platform.

In addition, the APE token can also be used for products in the BAYC ecosystem and provides access to new products in the future.
