I’ll echo others’ concerns and add one more: we don’t have enough demand here yet for 1500 notebooks. I’m not sure there’s enough demand for 100.

On secrecy: I’d prefer a regular notebook but with some “in the know,” very subtle markings for a few pages that contain passphrases. So I’d take regular notes or draw and then a few pages in-between would have keys to important wallets, yet they should be hard to recognize. Maybe mask them as word puzzles.

Currently my keys are stored in a regular notebook like that, it’s just not very waterproof. Anyone picking it up will think it’s just my scribbles/ideas notebook and my god, nobody likes to read others’ ideas. Perfect cover!

50 wallets is way too many anyway. I don’t need waterproof/good notebook for my throwaway wallets. Just my 2 cents! Hope it helps

Hi ApeCoin DAO Community,

@Stonie has responded to our questions and has provided consent to share them in this forum for the community.

Question (click to expand)
  1. We just wanted to confirm you part of your request includes a one-time license for 1,500 of the ApeBooks. Is this correct? If so, would it be possible to add this to the Overall Cost section?

Yes this proposal is requesting funds for the exclusive print manufacture in the total of 1,500 Apebooks. And yes one time license.

  1. Would it be okay to add these details to the Overall Cost section of your Draft to add clarification for the DAO community? If so, can you please provide the exact text you want added? Also, if there is another location in the Draft you think fits better please let us know.

Here is the revised overall cost section:

“Overall Cost”

This section proposes a budget for the development, printing, production, and shipping of 1,500 Apebooks, which amounts to $47,200 USD in APE

  1. Thanks for confirming. I have gone ahead and updated your AIP Draft with the text above. When you get a chance, can you please confirm it looks correct? And is it okay to share this last question/answer with the community?

Confirmed. You can share this last question/answer with the community.

A DAR package is being worked on and upon completion this AIP will move into Administrative Review. Follow this Topic as further updates will be posted here in the comments.

Hey Sasha, thanks for your thoughts on the Apebook. Regarding the amount of Apebook claims, I did a little research and spoke to an author who had around 1,000 claims for their drop recently. So, I plan to continue supplying the Apebooks to members until all books have been distributed. It’s also a great way to incentivize both new and previously active members to participate in the dao once again.

I’m glad you’re already keeping your keys in a notebook. It’s definitely an easy way to start taking custody of your own keys, by keeping track of multiple wallets, mobile and desktop, hot or cold, from different blockchains. 100% Offline btw :+1:.

Also, I added Shieldcrypt to the Apebook which is a second layer of protection as a way to mask private key characters behind password hint questions, which is similar to a puzzle-like encryption just in case somebody gets a hold of your Apebook. Additionally, the waterproof feature is great for protecting your seed phrases from coffee spills, chemical spills, floods, and other accidents around the home or office. I know this because these incidents inspired the creation of the original Stonebook.

Hope this feedback helps answer your questions.
