Proposal Name: Apeverse - A Multi-language Information Hub for the Ape Ecosystem
Proposal Category: Ecosystem Fund Allocation
Reason for Return
The previous AIP was rejected in the community voting event.
The updated version is stated below.
The creation of the multi-language information hub, Apeverse, is a move aiming at aggregating information dissemination and community engagement for the rapidly growing Ape ecosystem. With the expanding Ape community, it is crucial to have a platform that provides timely and accessible information on the latest updates, data, and activities within the ecosystem.
Apeverse will not only serve as a source of information but also as a platform for community members to connect and collaborate, fostering a sense of community and promoting growth. The platform will track dynamic changes of Ape-related NFTs and Apecoin and provide data analysis to showcase the progress of the ecosystem, further promoting transparency and accountability within the community.

The Ape ecosystem has seen incredible growth and popularity since its launch, and as the community continues to expand, it’s crucial to have a platform for information dissemination and community engagement. The creation of a multi-language information hub, Apeverse, will provide the community with timely and accessible information on the latest developments within the ecosystem.
Apeverse will serve as a platform for the Ape community to connect and collaborate. The website will encourage cooperation among members by allowing them to submit relevant progress and events. In addition to providing real-time updates of official information, Apeverse will track dynamic changes of Ape NFTs and Apecoin, and provide intuitive analysis to show the progress of the ecosystem on a data level.
The creation of Apeverse has the potential to help build a bigger and more diverse community. By making the ecosystem accessible to a wider audience through multiple languages, Apeverse will help to attract new members and promote growth in different areas of the world. This will help to ensure the continued success and expansion of the Ape ecosystem, making it a truly global phenomenon with even more impact.
Apeverse will serve as a source of information and updates, reducing confusion and misinformation and ensuring that the Ape community is always well-informed. The data trends and analysis provided by Apeverse will inform and guide decision-making for community members, further building trust and confidence in the community.
Apeverse will also play a key role in promoting the Ape ecosystem to wider communities. By showcasing online and offline activities, Apeverse will help attract new members and promote the community’s growth.
In addition to serving as a source of information and community engagement, Apeverse will play an important role in discovering new use cases for ApeCoin and bringing more utilities to the token. For example, the website will provide access to unique functions and benefits available to ApeCoin holders, and will explore new utilities for the token, such as using ApeCoin to pay for memberships and access advanced functions, using ApeCoin to pay for tickets to offline events, and more.
Apeverse will present its products in the form of web pages, divided into the following categories: Homepage, News, Ape NFT, ApeCoin, and Activities.
Homepage: The home page will provide an overview of the sub-pages, including News, Ape NFT, ApeCoin, and recent activities. The homepage will feature a scrolling display of key content, such as major events from Yuga, important proposals and voting from the ApeCoin DAO, changes in Ape-related collateral and data, etc.
News: The News page will be divided into three modules. The first module will display Ape-related news from official channels and mainstream media. The second module will feature articles on the Ape ecosystem, with independent writers regularly invited to report on recent developments. The third module will show the latest proposals on the ApeCoin forum, including recent APIs and ongoing votes.
Ape NFT: This section will capture and display relevant data on the NFT market, including the floor price transaction volume and other key data of Ape NFTs. Advanced functions may be added in the future, such as tracking whale activities, KOL accounts, large transactions, and address profits.
ApeCoin: This part will display the price chart of ApeCoin, real-time data updated in a timely manner, and a daily statistics summary updated on a daily basis. More information, such as its circulation and release schedule, will also be aggregated.
Activities: The Activities page will consist of two parts, online and offline activities. The website will regularly launch creative campaigns with ApeCoin rewards. For offline events, the website will provide timely information about gatherings, conferences, and exhibitions where Ape has a presence.
In addition to the sub-pages, the website will be available in multiple languages, starting with English, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, with plans to expand to more languages in the future to build a global community. As Apeverse grows, more sub-pages and derivative products may be added in the future.
