IDriss is an open-source protocol and browser extension (75k+ weekly users) that seamlessly integrates Twitter with the web3 world by linking public wallet addresses to Twitter usernames. Through their Chrome extension, IDriss enables Twitter users to natively send and receive crypto, including the facilitation of perpetual donations. IDriss proposes to integrate with ApeCoin DAO to introduce a mechanism for perpetual donations, greatly benefiting ApeCoin’s vast sub-communities. By linking public wallet addresses to Twitter usernames through IDriss, these sub-communities can seamlessly launch and manage donation campaigns directly on Twitter.


  • Facilitate fundraising through perpetual donations, supporting sub-communities.
  • Humanize interactions, strengthening community bonds.

ApeCoin’s sub-communities are the backbone of its ecosystem. IDriss offers a solution to facilitate seamless and continuous fundraising directly on Twitter, fostering community support and financial growth.

Example initiatives facilitated through the IDriss browser extension:


Perpetual Donations: Continuous fundraising facilitated directly through Twitter via IDriss.


Technology: IDriss Chrome extension.

Integration: Linking of Twitter accounts to ApeCoin public wallet addresses.


Step 1 - Integration Setup: Allowlist ApeCoin DAO’s Twitter account, their sub-communities, and all delegates for a free IDriss registration.

Step 2 - Account Creation: All sub-communities, delegates, and the @ApeCoin twitter account create an account on IDriss, linking their Twitter username to a public wallet address for accepting donations.

Step 3 - (Optional) Governance Dashboard Enhancement: Integrate IDriss into the existing governance dashboard for delegates using their open-source library. The governance dashboard will display Twitter names instead of delegates’ wallet addresses. This change allows token holders to have more context and learn about the delegates before delegating their votes. It enables them to make more informed decisions and potentially leverage the underlying Twitter infrastructure to DM the delegate. This integration requires only a few lines of code and takes minutes for an experienced developer.

Start Date: We can start as soon as possible.

Milestone 1: Completion of allowlisting for the ApeCoin Twitter account, and for all sub-communities.

Milestone 2: Allowlist all delegates.


The allowlisting of IDriss will be done at no cost. ApeCoin DAO’s Twitter account, their sub-communities, and all delegates will be allowlisted for free.


Yooooo… Jaris.

Excited to see you in here and posting your first proposal. Would love to have you as a more-regular contributor, easily one of my favourite go-to’s whenever I’m poking around to experiment with new tooling or just catch up and chat DAOs.

IDriss looks interesting. And a great way to give-back a little as the holiday season approaches. I see this as an onboarding tool as well, able to dish out single ApeCoins on Twitter Spaces to get people checking out the Forum and Discord server.

Quick question on this one:

With that line of code you reference further down in the paragraph, how does that work in terms of activation. I’m wondering if this is something that would have to be enabled DAO-wide, or a delegation’s choice, or the user who delegates to that group.

Looking forward to seeing where this proposal goes, and getting your post count up so you can stay a while!!!



I have already been using IDriss for several months and I consider it a very interesting project, so I am extremely in favor of this proposal


Interesting, it works like you showed in the image above for gitcoin, right?
It seems very practical to me, the person immediately chooses the network and currency and delegates it to communities or people, right?


Thanks @AllCityBAYC, I’ll be contributing to the ApeCoin DAO on a regular basis; had great vibes here from day 1, and love the enthusiasm of the community, and proud to be a part of the fam.

The few lines of code will be integrated into the UI of the delegate page of the website - in order to map delegates twitter usernames to their wallet addresses.

The delegates who were allowlisted and registered would have their Twitter account displayed in the dashboard (e.g. as a Twitter icon)

IDriss will allowlist all delegates, and they can decide to register or not.


Exactly. Users select the network and the token they would like to send to the recipient directly on Twitter.


Nice… And glad to have you :muscle: :muscle:



Thanks for putting this proposal forward, @jarisjames! Are you able to provide more details on how the Twitter integration would work? What kind of authentication would be made to verify and link the Twitter account and wallet address?



All statements and opinions are my own, not on behalf of the Ape Foundation.

You’re welcome @Vulkan. So its authentication by attestation. Once a wallet address is allowlisted, they can navigate to the IDriss homepage, enter their wallet address and twitter username, but to officially claim the account, they have to publish a unique verification tweet, this will allow for IDriss to verify that you are the owner of the account.


Hi @jarisjames,

The community feedback period for your proposal would be ending in less than 24 hours.

Hi ApeCoin DAO Community,

We have no further questions for @jarisjames. This AIP is now under Administrative Review.

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

Kind Regards,


Can you list out the use cases. I see you have listed 3 key ones:

  1. Support a person who is a delegate
  2. Support a community running a delegation
  3. Support a charitable action which maybe ran by a delegation.

It seems if you support a delegate, you are sending them funds (gifting to them) as they probably aren’t charities so gifting is probably the right term. To clarify when you mean sub-communities you mean delegations?

What would be the demand for this? Also isn’t IDriss free now? Delegates aren’t sub communities so they are all independently ran. The current delegates - already have a place to share their twitter handle in the profile.

Also it is good to look at various options, this seems more like micro gifting versus donations via platforms such as thegivingblock.

P.S. Btw do you know what the green circle is? I know that isn’t the red ID of yours, but you may know.

gm @bigbull,

Happy New Year!

Thanks for your questions.

Here’s a clear breakdown of the use cases:

Delegates: The IDriss reverse address resolver will automatically display a delegate’s Twitter username within the dashboard, replacing the wallet hash for those without an ENS name. This feature makes delegates more visible by including a Twitter widget linked to their profiles as well. Currently, to view a delegate’s Twitter handle, one must click into their profile. With IDriss, Twitter usernames are immediately visible on the first page, enhancing delegate awareness and accessibility without extra clicks. This direct visibility on the landing page provides more context and makes delegates more approachable. Additionally, the IDriss protocol is a unified standard for mapping web2 identifiers to public wallet addresses (think: portable web3 address book). Once you verify your Twitter account for the ApeCoin dashboard, it will be verified across all dApps where IDriss is integrated. You can view the current integrations at Ecosystem - IDriss Docs.

Sub-Communities: IDriss also opens up new avenues for perpetual donations on Twitter, enabling sub-communities within the ApeCoin DAO to continuously raise funds, we’re referring to projects like ApeComms, Ladies of BAYC, and Ape Beverages. So, instead of only relying on donation rounds for grant funding, this can be done in perpetuity on Twitter, since it will function like a donation widget on their Twitter account. Also, IDriss is integrated with platforms like Gitcoin and other quadratic funding mechanisms. Donations made through IDriss on Twitter can leverage quadratic funding matches during live grant rounds as well.

Wider Community: IDriss will also list the $APE token, so members can send/receive $APE as well directly on Twitter, and other social media platforms in the near future, such as Twitch. Imagine an ApeCoin-related Twitter Space where hosts can tip guests in $APE, especially considering it only takes one $APE token to join the DAO. This scenario demonstrates the practical use of IDriss in real-time engagements. By the way, IDriss typically requires a one-time $10 setup fee, but our proposal for ApeCoin DAO includes free allowlisting for delegates, sub-community profiles, and perhaps a few community members as well to claim an IDriss badge.

And the green dot emoji is used by the Gitcoin ecosystem projects & team members to signal a stronger brand.


This proposal is live for Snapshot vote at Snapshot. The voting period closes 13 days from now at 9PM EST.

The AIP implementation is administered by the Ape Foundation. Implementation may be immaterially or materially altered to optimize for security, usability, to protect APE holders, and otherwise to effect the intent of the AIP. Any material deviations from an AIP, as initially approved, will be disclosed to the APE holder community.
