APE Foundation Players – The Administrators

In addition to the Special Council, the other key player supporting the APE Foundation is the Admin role.

Who they are: A third-party group specialized in administering Web3 organizations; this role is currently filled by Cartan Group LLC.

What they do: The fundamental work that’s required to support the DAO’s governance structure. Administrators don’t make decisions for the DAO but ensure the processes and rules put into place by the DAO’s initial AIPs are followed. Day-to-day this involves:

Ensuring Discourse posts follow community guidelines and are open/closed at the right time.

Reviewing AIP drafts to make sure they are sufficiently detailed.

Preparing AIP analysis reports for the Special Council to help them review and assess drafts.

Supporting the drafting and amplification of community ideas.


At the end of the day, the Foundation is here to serve YOU, the community, and grow increasingly decentralized over time. If there’s anything else you’d like the Foundation to do in order to best provide support, feel free to reach out to the moderators.

If you’ve made it this far in the post, you’ll understand how crucial your role is in this endeavor that we’re building together!

Yours Apefully,
