zkApes tokenomics and DAO airdrop
zkApes is a metaverse project built on zkSync Era mainnet, we call Apeverse. Apeverse aims to bring people together from all around the world for entertainment, education, interaction, and expression. Apeverse is developing a whole metaverse ecosystem based on Apes NFTs (dNFTs), you can exchange your NFT(AMM), play games, and make money in Apeverse.
Why should we launch zkApes token?
After 1 and a half years of development and nearly 2 months running on zkSync Era mainnet, we have launched zkApes NFTs, ApeX-the first NFTs DEX on zkSync, ApeScan-the first NFTs browser on zkSync, and we are launching NFTFi of zkApes soon. We are extremely excited to announce the launching of DAO governance of Apeverse, this is a massive leap forward in the development of the Apeverse. The future of Apeverse belongs to the DAO community, and the role of the zkApes token for enabling community-driven DAO governance.
Apeverse is developing in several directions, we can’t give up upgradeability but we want to remove central points of control. But then who controls upgradeability? The zkApes DAO does, and zkApes token is essential for distributing this power to the community. And that’s why a token is necessary for securely developing Apeverse.
How will we allocate zkApes token?
We’ve talked a lot about what governance is and why it’s important, but equally important is how that responsibility gets distributed to the community. The zkApe token is majority community owned, 70% will be distributed in the zkApes Airdrop next week, based upon data taken on several snapshots.
