ApeCoin will be administered by a new decentralized autonomous organization (DAO). The token will be managed by ApeCoin DAO, a community-controlled entity. The decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) will be financed by ApeCoin sales of 1 billion coins will be made accessible and will be governed by members, with each token granting one vote. Additionally, a corporate parent, the Ape Foundation, has been established to carry out DAO decisions. Among the Foundation’s board members are Alexis Ohanian and the co-founder of Animoca Brands.

Yuga Labs and Animoca Brands are developing a new ecosystem of play-to-earn games that will use ApeCoin as the “primary token.”

62% of ApeCoin’s total supply will go to an ecosystem fund, 14% will be given out to “launch donors,” and 5% will be given out to “miners.” The designers of BAYC, Yuga Labs, will retain 9.75% of tokens; Yuga Labs founders will receive 8% of tokens; and the Jane Goodall Foundation, a charity dedicated to safeguarding chimpanzee habitats, would receive the remaining 6.25%.

The DAO plans to offer physical goods as well as virtual commodities, like as jewelry, books, apparel, and drinks, by registering a trademark for the token.
