Working for Ape Foundation, Working for ApeCoin Community. Here I work for your votes!
- I will accept just 1 ApeCoin per month as for my compensation
- I will use my cosmopolitan cultural background, work experiences, and management skills to bridge different cultures and contribute to the ApeCoin community.
- I will bring a fresh set of decentralized global council meeting experience and governance to the ApeCoin DAO.
- I would like to build a leadership team to serve and protect ApeCoin DAO ecosystem!
So I am running for Special Council to represent and work for the best interest of the Ape Foundation as well as for the ApeCoin community.
My intrinsic motivation is to get involved, learn, and understand how ApeCoin DAO is being governed and managed professionally as a decentralized global organization at present. I just submitted an AIP: “3 months probationary period for a newly elected Special Council“. So I am proposing that I will take 1 ApeCoin for compensation if I will be elected to serve as Special Council for the probationary period.
My experiences in and out of new technologies trends have allowed me to accomplish over 10 years expertise in bitcoin and Ethereum crypto mining industry, 20 years in global scale Internet security, and Cisco network infrastructure technologies. Since 2021, I have done extensive research and study about NFT, Web3, GameFi, and different Metaverse platforms, and finally invested in the Otherside Metaverse because it represents the best of the best!
I have seen the Ape Foundation has made outstanding progress, amazing growth, and much better than many other players. Therefore it would be a great honor for me to join the ApeCoin expert team and leader group, participate ApeCoin DAO Council weekly meetings to discuss AIPs and ensuring that what goes to the DAO for a vote, serve the ApeCoin dynamic community, and promote the ApeCoin token for culture, gaming and commerce use that the community owns including myself as an individual and can build on, specially on the Otherside Metaverse Web3 platform with already established 100,000 virtual land plots waiting for actions!
Rationale = 合理 (in Chinese), I would like to use reference to Google definition “a set of reasons or a logical basis for a course of action or a particular belief", or simply to say “Reasonable” 合理!
I just submitted two AIP ideas:
A 3 months probationary period for a newly elected Special Council. So for me, rationale is that a newly elected Special Council has to prove he or she has the skills to perform as per the Special Council’s job description and requirements.
What is the rationale for the performance evaluation of the newly elected Special Council?
During the 3 months probationary period, If the elected Special Council fails to perform in a rationale measure such as failed to attend in Special Council meetings,not actively involve himself or herself in the ApeCoin a forum, and repeatedly fails to improve the levels of community engagement, other Special Council members should vote to remove the newly elected Special Council from the committee.
This is my rational view to further develop and build the foundations of a governance system to support the ApeCoin community and its leadership ambitions.
At Easy2mine.io, I spend 5-7 hours per week in a decentralized top management meeting via Zoom, and VooV platforms, managing different projects with their localized governance strategy. At present, I manage Bitcoin mining farms operations in the North America region with 20+ employees and over $2 billion in assets.
What experience and improvement can I bring to the ApeCoin DAO?
I am willing to share my meeting experience more of how we conduct meeting on regular week-to-week basis, and a vision on how the ApeCoin DAO management process can be more engaging by using Notion productivity software platform to help the ApeCoin community communicate, collaborate, achieve consensus, and provide more transparency between the special council and the ApeCoin community.
Also, as an investor in my private capacity, I have purchased 3 Otherside Otherdeeds # 74114, #79490, #87668 for Web3 GameFi testing and development. I can do some work for the Ape Foundation, and engage with our global branding partners as well as GameFi developers for collaboration.

#74114, Owned by kenforest
I would engage with Snag Solutions, the developer, and advise them to add some codes to have the NFT owner name listed “#74114, Owned by kenforest “ in ApeCoin marketplace platform. In addition, add a highlight for stolen NTF items. Therefore provide better protection for the ApeCoin NFT marketplace for the ApeCoin community.
I believe my wide international sophistication and entrepreneurship MBA education, decentralized global business operational management skills, crypto blockchain expertise, and NFT/Web3/GameFi experience would make me an excellent candidate for the Special Council role.
I look forward to having you give me some votes for this opportunity to join the ApeCoin DAO and serve you all as a Special Council member. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need additional information about me.
Thank you for all your votes!
Special Council Candidate
