AIP-427: Omniichain Funding for Ecosystem Expansion Around $APE

Proposal Name:

Omniichain Funding for Ecosystem Expansion Around $APE

Proposal Category:

Brand Decision

Abstract:

The Omniichain fund is dedicated to promoting growth, innovation, and interoperability across multiple chains to expand the ApeCoin ecosystem. The initiative is focused on financing projects developed with Omniichain apps, services, and infrastructure to enhance the utility and reach of $APE. By fostering a more integrated, accessible, and versatile blockchain ecosystem, this proposal aims to support the ApeChain and $APE through strategic funding of cross-chain applications.

Team Description:

  • Alex: Blockchain Architect with over 5 years of experience in developing cross-chain solutions.
  • Jordan: Finance Specialist focused on DAO treasury management and decentralized fund allocation.
  • Sam: Community Manager with deep knowledge of the ApeCoin and broader NFT community dynamics.
  • Posco: Brand Leader with extensive coding knowledge and crypto sphere experience.

Benefit to the ApeCoin Ecosystem:

  • Enhance ApeCoin’s utility across multiple blockchains, increasing its adoption and value.
  • Support innovative projects that align with APE Community’s core missions, such as decentralization, inclusivity, and interoperability.
  • Attract new members and developers to the ApeCoin ecosystem, enriching the community with fresh ideas and initiatives.
  • Promote cross-chain $APE development around dApps, DeFi, and SoFi.
  • Open gates for numerous developers working on different chains with their innovative products.

Key Terms:

  • Omnichain: Technologies or protocols operating across multiple blockchains.
  • Interoperability: The ability of different blockchain networks to share information and value seamlessly.

Our use of the term “Omniichain” refers specifically to the broad capabilities of our proposed tools and services, which are designed to operate across multiple blockchains. This is not directly related to any existing platform named “Omnichain,” but rather a general term used in blockchain technology.

Currently, Omniichain (the platform) is in its formative stages as part of this proposal. We plan to develop an official website and social media presence once we have progressed further in the implementation phase and have foundational structures in place.

Platforms and Technologies:

  • Cosmos SDK: For building interconnected blockchain applications.
  • Polkadot: For enabling scalable cross-chain transfers.
  • Chainlink: For secure and reliable off-chain data feeds.
  • LayerZero and Other Omnichain Protocols: For seamless asset transfers.

Our platform will require users to connect their wallets to interact with the proposed applications. We plan to conduct comprehensive security audits through reputable third-party security firms and implement best practices in smart contract development to ensure user safety.

Steps to Implement and Timeline:

  1. Formation of the Omniichain Fund Committee: Select a diverse group of community members and experts to oversee the fund (Month 1). This committee would be selected by the five core Omniichain team members (Alex, Jordan, Sam, Posco).
  2. Open Call for Proposals: Announce and solicit project proposals from the community (Month 2).
  3. Proposal Evaluation & Selection: The committee reviews submissions and selects projects for funding (Month 3).
  4. Funding & Development Phase: Allocate funds to chosen projects and monitor development progress (Months 4-12).
  5. Review & Reporting: Evaluate completed projects and report back to the community on outcomes and learnings (Month 12 onwards).

The Ape Foundation is not expected to engage directly in the operational steps of implementing the AIP. However, we would seek their guidance in ensuring that the projects align with the overall values and goals of the ApeCoin ecosystem, particularly in the evaluation phase of project proposals.

Key Milestone:

For this AIP to be considered “fully implemented,” the goal is to have at least 10 projects not just funded but also successfully launched and operational. These projects should be groundbreaking in the fields of dApps, DeFi, SoFi, and marketplaces.

Overall Cost:

Total amount requested from the ApeCoin Ecosystem Fund = 0 ApeCoin.

No funds are being requested from the Ape Foundation. The Omniichain network will allocate $2 million of their own funds to developers and builders to create on ApeChain using Omniichain products.

Thank you Ezzy. Any opinions or opportunities for change do you see? I think us $APE coin fam deserve a chance for the smaller creators who do not have a bank roll to thrive.

I completely agree with you on opportunities for smaller creators and those without a large bankroll is essential for fostering a truly inclusive and equitable ApeCoin ecosystem.

if no funds or involvement are required from the DAO to execute on this proposal, why is it here?

Interview with @Xavierfreeway

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.

The Ape Foundation is not expected to engage directly in the operational steps of implementing the AIP. However, we would seek their guidance in ensuring that the projects align with the overall values and goals of the ApeCoin ecosystem, particularly in the evaluation phase of project proposals.

2. Would your platform require users to connect wallets, and if so what are the plans for security audits of the platform?

Yes, our platform will require users to connect their wallets to interact with the proposed applications. We plan to conduct comprehensive security audits through reputable third-party security firms and implement best practices in smart contract development to ensure user safety.

3. Your product is referred to as “Omniichain.” Is there any relation to the existing “Omnichain” platform?

Our use of the term “Omniichain” refers specifically to the broad capabilities of our proposed tools and services, which are designed to operate across multiple blockchains. This is not directly related to any existing platform named “Omnichain,” but rather a general term used in blockchain technology.

4. Are there any current links to resources regarding Omniichain (website, socials, etc.), or is this a business yet to be established?

Currently, Omniichain is in its formative stages as part of this proposal. We plan to develop an official website and social media presence once we have progressed further in the implementation phase and have foundational structures in place.

5. You’ve mentioned “We want to see at least 10 ground breaking dApps, games and more that will most likely be DeFi, SoFi and marketplaces” as a final implementation metric. Would these 10 projects need to be completed, or merely have received funding, in order for this AIP to be considered “fully implemented?”

For this AIP to be considered “fully implemented,” the goal is to have at least 10 projects not just funded but also successfully launched and operational. These projects should be groundbreaking in the fields of dApps, DeFi, SoFi, and marketplaces, as stated.

6. Regarding any granted permission to use ApeCoin’s trademarks by the Ape Foundation, do you expect to maintain full ownership rights to the content and/or IP which may be created as a result of the approval of your proposal?

Any content or IP created through the use of ApeCoin’s trademarks will respect the licensing agreements with the Ape Foundation. The specifics of these rights would be negotiated to ensure both parties’ interests are maintained, especially focusing on how IP rights are managed post-project completion.

7. As per the ApeCoin General Guidelines, “proposals will not be put up for vote if they involve illegal activity, hate speech, pornographic material, or are at odds with the mission or values of the APE Foundation.” Can you ensure that the content on the platform would be in keeping with these guidelines?

We are committed to ensuring that all content on our platform adheres to the ApeCoin General Guidelines. This includes strict policies against illegal activity, hate speech, pornographic material, and any content that conflicts with the mission or values of the APE Foundation.

8. Do you provide consent to apply updates to the relevant areas of your proposal based on your responses to the questions above?

Yes, I provide consent to apply updates to the proposal based on the responses and any further feedback from the Ape Foundation to align better with community standards and expectations.

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

Yes, I also provide consent to share these questions and answers with the community in this forum, ensuring transparency and community involvement in the approval process.
