AIP-251: ApeCoin DAO 101: The Ultimate Guide For ApeCoin DAO Newcomers

Love this suggestion! Thanks for the input!


Love to see this, great ideia Bojangle


As a new member that came through WG0, I’ve definitely experienced difficulty getting up to speed on how to participate and what my first steps should be. I think simple onboarding infographics would be super helpful. Emphasis on simple.
Great ideas here


Hi BG,

We need more data to work with - surveys are a great start.
We need info to be easily accessible and not overwhelming - infographics, tl;drs, FAQs and even simple basic videos are all great tools and resources we should commit to and focus on.

Tl;dr - wen mate, we need this asap.

(Sometimes for me, don’t know if I’m alone in thinking and feeling like this, but seems we are doing everything backwards, as most of these processes should have been in place since dot. Great news is however, that it’s never too late.)




Hi SS,

This needs to happen too - makes sense we have a ‘database’, which is perhaps overseen by BG team, that enables this, and also allows community members to make submissions of their own infographic ideas etc for inclusion. I think we can all agree that infographics are a great resource we should be using a lot more. Endless pages of text is just ngmi in the community, esp for onboarding or dissemination of information, where attention spans are limited.



Love this so so much Bojangle, amazing to see your Idea from the Idea-a-thon flourishing & coming to life!!

This is so dearly needed, and I totally agree with @capetaintrippy’s point that a tab from will allow this Idea to have maximum impact.

In terms of the points @Neenee and @adventurousape brought up about languages, I second that while the forum is mostly in English now and participation from other regions is low, that’s actually all the more reason why we should translate & become more inclusive to different language-speakers!!

From being a part of different language-speaking clubs around the world such as Chinese Ape Club, and more recently getting to know BAYC Japan, I can tell there’s a lot of appetite for ApeCoin news and ways to participate, but the barrier to entry is just too high for non-native English speakers.

I think the way to combat the difficulty on our end for translating is to empower local community members from those different languages to act as liaisons and serve as local hubs of knowledge for their languages.

As Adventurous mentioned, we’ve already seen this happening organically with community members like @dyorjdr who translates AIPs for the French Ape Yacht Club every week and acts as a point of contact and information transfer! As yet another example, a Chinese translation site has been created from the efforts of a passionate community member, and you can check out the website from right now to see the fruits of their efforts!

As we keep developing & implementing this idea, I hope we can keep in mind accessibility & inclusion for future multilingual communities to easily “plug in” and understand the ecosystem. This includes things like avoiding slang which cannot be easily translated or understood by non-native speakers and avoiding typos which make translations difficult- easy things we can keep in mind now to make it easier for other community members to join later!

Thanks for all your hard work on this Bojangle and excited to see ApeCoin DAO 101 go forth!!

Hey Halina! I really appreciate the feedback. It has become clear that having as much of this info in various languages as possible will be super helpful for the DAO. What would you say are the most spoken languages in the DAO outside of english?


This would be my guess, but I am hoping you have more insight?


I’d add Tagalog to this list. I’m in BAYCkada, and there are multiple rooms of 75 people in them, with nearly half of the conversation taking place in Tagalog.


This is an excellent proposal! I wholeheartedly agree that an efficient and engaging onboarding process is key to attracting and retaining the best talent. Infographics, videos, FAQs, and live training sessions would indeed be helpful tools for newcomers. Looking forward to seeing this valuable resource come to fruition. Let’s make ApeCoin DAO more accessible and user-friendly!

Hi @BojangleGuy,

Thank you @BojangleGuy for your ideas [and the ApeCoin DAO community for the thoughtful discussions]. A moderator will get in touch with the author to draft the AIP in the appropriate template. Once the AIP is drafted and meets all the DAO-approved guidelines, the proposal will be posted on Snapshot for live official voting at: Snapshot

Your guess is very on point!! I actually did some research recently in picking a “top 10 languages” for our DAO, and the list ended up like so:

  1. Simplified Chinese
  2. Spanish
  3. French
  4. Russian
  5. Hindi
  6. Japanese
  7. Korean
  8. Tied (Arabic, Vietnamese, Portuguese, Indonesian, Turkish, Italian, Dutch, Polish)

Note that the ranking is ordered so because I weighted 2 factors, first number of native speakers (total addressable market, people to onboard to web 3 in the future) and secondly number of people from that country/language speaking region in web 3/blockchain (realistic addressable market in the short term, lower onboarding costs).

The other point is that some countries/languages are generally known to have way higher English proficiencies than others. For example, Dutch speakers in the Netherlands (where 96% of Dutch speakers live), score a High English Proficiency on the EF English Proficiency Index (EF EPI), while other language speakers like Arabic & Vietnamese are ranked as Very Low English Proficiency. I didn’t take it into account for the ranking, but think it makes sense to keep in mind prioritizing languages with low English fluency as opposed to languages whose speakers already have strong English skills.

Either way, we already have 2 community members in the top 5 who are taking the initiative for their communities and just need encouragement & support from us. Selecting a final top 5 would be a great step to take, and then focusing on onboarding/supporting those communities & appointing a lead liaison would be a strong start. Afterwards, we can templatize the process and onboard many more languages efficiently.


This is all super helpful info. Thank you so much for your time and effort on this. I will start working now on getting a doc created that will compile languages and people in the community who are spearheading those various languages. :heart:


Happy to see this AIP being drafted can’t wait for the take off … let’s gooo

Hi ApeCoin DAO Community,

Our team has reviewed and discussed @BojangleGuy AIP Draft and have sent a list of initial questions. We await answers.

Follow this Topic as further updates will be posted here in the comments.

Kind Regards,


With WG0, @holocronape has been super helpful in translating things to Spanish and helping people in the discord server. He may be interested in assisting.


I’d love to see this idea shape up and also get to more specifics on what the learning objectives would be that this AIP would solve for. From reading the specifications, it seems like you’re proposing to have a single resource guide for DAO operations, processes, and systems.

I’m interested in understanding what the most common behavioral outcomes we’d like to have for new DAO members and start from there…

Lots of ideas on this and look forward to evolving this idea! Thanks for putting this together @BojangleGuy !
