Proposal Category: Ecosystem Fund Allocation

Team Description:

  • Popoking:
    • Extensive experience in event organization.
    • Holder of MAYC.
    • Collaborated with cafes to materialize IPs, such as BAYC, MAYC, etc.
  • Lok Hui:
    • 6 years of experience in 3D printing.

Proposal Description:

We aim to materialize IPs and provide community members the opportunity to own their 3D models for free. We would also like to provide income for APE community members by offering booths for 3D IP model display and sale, with all net profits going back to the APE community members. Apecoin will be used for transactions throughout the process.

We will print 3D models for APE community members, such as KODA, BAYC, MAYC, Mocaverse, etc. For IPs without 3D modeling, we will provide 3D modeling diagram for up to 100 NFTs. For those with 3D models, we will print it for members directly. Each KODA, BAYC, MAYC, and Mocaverse holder can print their model once and choose to sell or keep it. Each model will have the “Powered by Apecoin” logo printed on the back.

Benefit to Apecoin Ecosystem:

  1. Providing Income for APE Community Members:
  • We will offer 3D printing opportunities for KODA, BAYC, MAYC, and Mocaverse. Members can choose to sell or display their models at the 3D IP model booths. Pricing will be determined by the IP holders, and all net profits will go to the APE community members.
  1. Maximizing Brand Exposure:
  • Each 3D model will feature the “Powered by Apecoin” logo, increasing community cohesion and enhancing meaningful engagement and value.
  1. Utilizing Apecoin in Transactions for Real-World Utility:
  • Apecoin will be used for transactions at the 3D IP model booths, encouraging its circulation and usage.
  1. Synergy Between Digital and Physical Presence:
  • The combination of online promotion and physical model presence will amplify impact, attract visitors and media attention, and extend global reach.

Cool tech! Do you by chance have any photos or mock-ups of what the 3D printed NFT (models or masks) look like?

Kind of a confusing idea with a large cost, but interesting one indeed.
Can you share more 3D prints of Bored Apes and places where you have actually sold them as proof of work?

Have little to do with ape-coiners . We had similar proposals discussions before.

Super cool looking! Thanks for the reply!

Sure! We have negotiation several areas like cafes, art galleries, and other places. Like the Taiwan’s second-ranked café “RUH CAFE” that has previously collaborated with our products.
