AIP-373: Boring Security - Runnin’ It Back

Thanks for this exciting proposal @Feld ! Love the work Boring Security has been doing, and want to highlight a few points I especially love:

  • The partnership of Boring Security with other communities such as Gitcoin, Mocaverse, and Art Blocks helps spread a positive reputation of the APE ecosystem across web 3 & is so important for ApeCoin to be recognized as a champion of public goods in the space.
  • The expansion of non-English classes means a lot, especially to all our community members around the world and for whom English may not be a first language. Love this so much, and love that Boring Security is helping our ecosystem build a strong international recognition!

Out of curiosity, I noticed that the Boring Security X/Twitter and Discord do not display ApeCoin prominently- would you consider adding the “Powered by ApeCoin” text in the Boring Security Twitter/Discord banner or prominently elsewhere as part of this AIP?

Thanks again Feld, best of luck on this proposal!!

I would happily add that in! @shotgun.tobi (the proposal’s co-author) and marketing guru can help drum up some ways to do that. I think we can probably have that as part of this proposal, as I think it is obvious that without ApeCoin, Boring Security could not exist, and so I have no problem making that prominently displayed to the world!

We’ll work on building that into the proposal on Monday before/when we move into draft. I don’t think you’ll be the last person to request that, and want to see a tangible benefit back to ApeCoin’s brand in a more direct way.


We tryna pass with FLYING FOKIN CARPETS, MATE!

Love it, thanks Feld!! @shotgun.tobi is so talented, can’t wait to see the ApeCoin brand on Twitter/X, Discord, the website, etc.

Also, if there’s a way to make the brand/logo clickable or add links to the DAO on any platform, that’d be super cool too. Anything to help funnel in some friends from our other Boring Sec communities :slight_smile:


Big support! Boring Security and its team are seriously one of the finest! <3
Good luck


Very cool project! I started watching relatively recently, everything is at the highest level!


@Feld please tell, I have already registered for the lesson several times, but I can’t get in. Will there be a separate lesson for the forum participants? (101). I really want to pass, but it doesn’t work (((


Although we don’t publicize this, when selecting participants for our live classes, we generally have a priority based filter to accept students that our community managers will follow.

Priority #1 - Our current partner for that class
Priority #2 - One of our current partners for that month
Priority #3 - Yuga Asset Holders // those with more than just a few ApeCoin (to fight against Sybil) // Other Partner Asset Holders of previous months
Priority #4 - Other NFTs/tokens in their wallet

If you’re someone who doesn’t hold any NFTs of any of the 80+ partners we’ve partnered with, and has no/little apecoin/eth in their wallet, you will likely not get selected for a class unless it has low enrollment. The best way to get into a class is to show up on class day, 5-10 minutes before the class starts, and ask if there is room. Having any role from our collabland verification in the server helps too. We post our calendar every month on our twitter, and pin the message


Is there a ready-made infographic with lists of all project partners whose participants have already completed or are planning to undergo training? It would be clear and I think it would be pretty cool visually :thinking:


We don’t have an infographic, but we do have a list in our Discord. This list is not comprehensive as we’ve added like 4-5 more and haven’t added them here yet!

At one point we maintained a Dune Dashboard to try and drum up a competitive leaderboard between communities. (hasn’t been updated in over a year)

If anyone wants to rebuild this in a leaderboard format, hit us up, we can pay you for it!!!



Boring Security onboarded me into the DAO and I am forever thankful. As an alum of the 101 and 102 classes, this AIP a no brainer. BorSec classes should be a mandatory step for anyone coming into crypto/NFTs/web3.

The video series are a great addition!

Looking forward to taking the 101 and 102 classes. :handshake:

have been around cyber security and crypto since 2014, but believe we can all learn something no matter how much we think we know. :white_check_mark:


Lucky to have onboarded some absolute legends! It is always surprising to hear when folks like you and @AnnieRawrz got more involved into the DAO as a result of their initiation via Boring Sec <3


Hi ApeCoin DAO Community,

@Feld has completed editing their AIP Idea to be their AIP Draft.

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