Hi @JasonJape ,

Really interesting concept.

I have some questions:

  1. How is the CLIP Team making money from the services? Will there be an automatic percentage integrated in the platform?

  2. 50% of Net Revenue to ApeCoin DAO is a high percentage to have as standard percentage. Will it not limit the growth of CLIP for example in bearish times?
    Would it maybe be an idea to incorporate metrics. e.g. the DAO receives x % if net revenue if below x amount and x % if revenue if above x amount?

Amazing idea and amazing team! Totally here for it!


Hi KimoraGold

Thanks for your questions and interest. Please find our answers below:

  1. CLIP’s revenue comes mainly from platform fees and success fee. We will take a percentage in the range of 5%-15% depending on the nature of the deal.

  2. 50% of the net revenue generated by the dedicated APE team will be contributed to the APE Foundation. CLIP is an existing business and we have an overall growth strategy to ensure it is a sustainable business. We have a relatively higher percentage of profit sharing to the APE Foundation because we believe in our own project and we want to give back to the APE foundation and community, which is always our believe - build for the community and led by the community


I really love what you’re doing here with this. We’ve seen success from other communities around IP platforms (e.g. OverpassIP for Pudgy Penguins) and after meeting with @JasonJape and the team, I feel confident that they’ll do a great job. Looking forward to hearing community comments and seeing how they lead to refinements. I also feel like the 50% of Net Revenue for the ApeCoin Foundation is key…if this is executed well, it could be a great income stream for sustainable development.
