AIP-332: A dedicated ApeCoin Community Hub within tokenproof app

Hi ApeCoin DAO Community,

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

1. Is the Ape Foundation expected to engage in any of the steps of the AIP implementation? If so, please specify the steps and elaborate on how it is expected to work.

As part of the first phase and milestone of the project, we have proposed forming a project committee comprised of 3-5 active community members and potentially members from Special Council. We would like input from this committee as to what type of content would be useful to include as well as what cadence.

2. You outline a process that will involve content requests being received from Special Council and the Foundation.

2a. How do you propose these requests from the Special Council/Foundation be facilitated?

The protocol and channel for requests needs to be part of the decisions coming out of discussions with the project committee outlined above. We would be happy to receive requests from the Council or Foundation to publish content or push a notification for important announcements as needed. Having said that, we don’t envision requiring the Foundation or Council to have active participation in the content submission through the life of this project, but rather on an as-needed basis.

2b. Will there be a limit to the amount of content/announcements ApeCoin DAO can deliver through the ApeCoin DAO tokenproof integration?

Any limits will be established by the discussions with the project committee happening in the first phase of the project. Initially, we don’t see hard limits being established but also need to be mindful of curating the correct content as to not overload the audience and lose their attention.

3. Please provide a brief history of tokenproof including any history of exploits.

tokenproof was founded in January of 2022 as a result of its founding team being part of the NFT community and identifying a need for better infrastructure and tools to support token-based experiences such as event ticketing and safe online token-gating. Since starting, tokenproof has supported hundreds of use cases for brands such as the Bored Ape Yacht Club, CryptoPunks, Doodles, PROOF Collective, as well as traditional brands like Adidas, GQ, Mercedes Benz, PUMA, and others.

There has never been an exploit in the tokenproof platform, and something to keep in mind is that tokenproof will NEVER have access to users’ tokens or digital assets as we only read from the blockchain to support token-gating.

4. Is there a security audit plan in place, and will you share the audit report with the ApeCoin DAO?

This is not in-scope.

5. Will you be collecting any user data during their interactions? If so, please elaborate.

The only user data collection that is in-scope for this proposal is the user’s wallet address.

6. How do you plan to facilitate community/Foundation review of app design and development?

Through the project/design committee as a collaborative effort. We envision having a limited number of video-calls with the committee, and we will make designs available through a project management platform where the committee can provide feedback.

7. How will the project and design committees be chosen?

We will publish a call for community/council members that may be interested in joining. Once we collect interest via a token-gated form that validates that they hold at least 1 ApeCoin, we will select the 3-5 members for such committee. tokenproof reserves the right to make the decision of who will be part of this committee.

8. Would you require a licensing agreement for the use of the ApeCoin logo for the implementation of this proposal?

We will request a licensing agreement be put in place if it is required by the ApeCoin Foundation.

9. Would your expectation be to keep complete full ownership of content produced from this proposal?

Content would be curated rather than created. There may be certain ancillary images or text created to accompany the curated content (for example, creating an image banner that would accompany an important announcement). tokenproof has no interest in owning such images or content created and does not envision using it for purposes other than the scope of this proposal.

10. Do you provide consent to share these questions with the community in this forum?


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.

Kind Regards,
