Immediately fire Horizen

AIP idea to fire Horizen immediately, retain their code base, and establish a decentralized team of engineers to finish the staking code, and for ApeCoin DAO to natively handle comms in the future.

The fact that they decided to wait this long to communicate that no USA people could stake is enough grounds for immediate termination. This should not be outsourced anyway, let’s hire people directly to handle this so we have full control.

Proposals submitted to the AIP Ideas category can be vague, incomplete ideas. Topics submitted here are not required to be submitted as a formal AIP Draft Template, however, you may still use the template if you wish.

Do they need to be fired? I mean, anybody can make a staking platform using the smart contract. Maybe the DAO should hire a dev team to do so.

Communication could have been improved, but they have made significant contribution to ApeCoin DAO, one of them is legal compliance. Anyone can do staking, but staking that meets the compliance is needed at the moment.
