ApeCoin Claim Extension - For BAYC/MAYC holders during the ORIGINAL CLAIM WINDOW - Ape help Ape

Hello ApeCoin Holders,

Thank you in advance for reading this, voting to support, and share with others.

I am proposing a moderate extension for ApeCoin claim for BAYC and MAYC holders.

The extension is only valid for those that were holding an unclaimed token PRIOR TO THE INITIAL DEADLINE.

I unfortunately missed the cut off and several others have reached out to me saying they are in the same boat. I feel the negative impact on individuals that weren’t able to claim is much larger then positive impact of having the ApeCoin go back into the EcoSystem Fund.

Perhaps a one or two week extension could be voted on by the community.

Ape help Ape.

Community is the real strength.

My story (short version):

Originally written to support channel on June 15th, 2 hours after claim ended.

I just finished moving from south america to north america and was hoping to get a dog for the claim as it was very important funds for me, but I didnt get a chance to scrape together the eth for a dog.

I couldnt see the timer on apecoin.com because i don’t have metamask on my phone and figured there would be an announcment in the BAYC discord under announcements. There was never an announcment in the BAYC discord announcements channel.

I did not realize ApeCoin was completely separate from BAYC. I do follow ApeCoin on twitter, but again had no idea they were separate and did not see the announcements due to the twitter algorithm.

Today (June 15th) was the first day I had my cold storage in hand after the move and went to claim only to find out i missed by TWO HOURS.

This would be a big help to me and I’m sure many others in the community.

Thank you for helping me and a few others that unfortunately missed the claim!

Please vote and share.

Be well!

Proposal Name:

—ApeCoin Claim Extension for Original Holders

Proposal Category:

—Community Support

Abstract | Two or three sentences that summarize the proposal.

–Anyone sill holding an eligible token (BAYC or MAYC) that they were holding PRIOR to the 90 day deadline has one last chance to claim their ApeCoin. Any tokens acquired or moved after the deadline are NOT eligible. This is to help people who had unfortunate matters that prevented them from claiming in the original window.

Motivation | A statement on why the APE Community should implement the proposal.

–The claim was very helpful for a lot of people. Some people like myself did not realize APE Community was different than BAYC and did not see the expiration announcement or due to some unforeseen circumstances could not access their wallet, or connect a wallet to see the timer on apecoin.com

Rationale | An explanation of how the proposal aligns with the APE Community’s mission and guiding values.

–Ape help Ape. The ultimate health of this Ecosystem will be community support and activation. Those individuals that were not able to claim could have missed on life changing assets that would provide resources to help give back more to community (equipment, classes, housing, art making tools, etc.) The extra amount put back into the EcoSystem fund is negligible at this time compared to how it can help individuals and thus help the entire web 3 ecosystem.

Specifications | A detailed breakdown of the platforms and technologies that will be used.

–Current site and claim technology

Steps to Implement | The steps to implement the proposal, including associated costs, manpower, and other resources for each step where applicable.

–A simple vote and reopening of the claim window for anyone who WAS holding an eligible token prior to the claim window ending and still IS holding the same token. No way to “cheat the system”

Timeline | Relevant timing details, including but not limited to start date, milestones, and completion dates.

–Reopen ASAP and have open for 14 days and announce on ApeCoin.com and BAYC discord/twitter.

Overall Cost | The total cost to implement the proposal.

-Negligible. Devs reinstate previous technology already used

Just shared this on Twitter.
I would imagine there are many that, for whatever their life circumstances were at the time (myself included), could benefit from this extension.
I wouldn’t think this would cost the Dao too much and I can’t see there being a lot of resistance from the community if put to a vote.
Good luck!
