Great to see a lot of talented candidates running for Special Council and have great visions. Really looking forward to be building hand in hand with everyone.

I would like to find this opportunity to express myself from my heart to the apedao community.

For those who don’t know me. I am an Australian raised in Sydney since I was 13. Back to hk 2004 right after SARS pandemic and went into real estates business for 12 years, further developed into physical Gold trading and currently I am position as a director in a Nasdaq listed company with $350M MC focusing in Fintech, financial solutions, money lending and property management.

Bought my first NFT (BAYC) in April 2021. Inspired by my daughter who was choosing the ape with me and she came up with “why don’t we find all the apes and have a party?” and this is how Elite Apes spouted and continues to grow.

I learned my journey the hard way. NFTs and crypto is treated as scams two years ago in Hong Kong. Lots of negative comments about us. So we decided to educate the public by funding our own NFT LAB magazine. Thru out the journey we are supported by HK Olympic gold medalist, ex-financier of Hk government, famous movie directors and celebrities to earn the recognition of web3 and NFTs. And now it’s a successful AIP-314 powered by Apedao.

For the past two years we continue to spread the awareness of NFTs , IP and Apecoin. In which I kicked myself for not follow close enough of the SC announcement. We decided to build with or without the title.
Collaborations with the British Museum , Penord Ricard , Korea Altava, Martell, merch on Amazon and Walmart, Gaming at Veecon, IRL education class of Defi, Open campus and hard earned recognition “Official Community Partner” of Apefest 2023.

We learnt a lot during the Apefest. Interacting with government entities, public transports, private enterprises and community interactions.

I realised how important is to become a special council member. Hope we still pulled it off in Hong Kong and didn’t let you down. Your appreciation our motivation.

My vision is to consolidate all our efforts, showcase and achievement for the past two years as a blue print and spread this proven model to all the other countries to drive mass adoption and reshape the future of APEDAO.

My role model is Yat Siu. Legends do great things.

The humble me just want to start the ripple effect. Thanks for your support!

Jason

I’ve had the honor of working with Jason for months in the DAO discussing many AIPs & DAO initiatives as the DAO point person for the HK Elite Apes- can definitely vouch for Jason’s expertise, work ethic, and passion for our DAO!!

Jason, it was lovely meeting you at Apefest- seeing our $APEs go international for the first time, and especially in Asia, brought me & many other community members so much joy. I fully believe in your ability to lead ApeCoin’s international presence & global reputation- thrilled to be running alongside each other!!

I got to meet @JasonJape briefly at Apefest. What I could see was he had:

  1. A genuine desire to create great experiences for the community.
  2. He was comfortable and willing to both talk to VVIPs and the small holders.
  3. He has been instrumental in spreading the web3 culture in HK.
  4. and Most importantly, loves his daughter who is a very sweet little girl.

You will be a great additional to the Special Council.

In addition to all the terrific things Jason has done around the BAYC ecosystem, his work around the ApeCoin delegation of Elite Apes is unmatched. This was in full display at ApeFest HK.

I appreciate the way you connect with the community, Jason, and I believe you would be a terrific representative on SC. All the best during the campaign.

Jason, I am personally excited to see you running. Thank you for all you and the elite apes did to make Apefest a reality in HK. It was an incredible week and glad we got a chance to meet in person and talk DAO. Good luck!

Hi @JasonJape, I am asking all candidates the following same questions:

If elected, what is the one item you feel passionate about and would like to see accomplished during your tenure within the DAO?

What is an area of expertise that you will be bringing to the table?

Are there any factors in your life that may limit your time and ability to serve? (Running a business, extensive traveling, secret agent for the SEC, etc…)

What is your least favorite thing right now with our DAO in its current state?

Currently, many of the proposals are determined by large wallets, there are many grumblings about it though I stand neutral on this; if possible, would you change this? and if so, how and why?

Will you be an active participant in the DAO even if unelected?

Thank you and best of luck,

F/S

If elected, what is the one item you feel passionate about and would like to see accomplished during your tenure within the DAO?

JasonJape: Increase communities’ trust and involvement in the DAO. “Communities” refers not only to web3 audiences but also to web2 audiences, merchants, and corporates. Attract more builders who share a common dream and allow funding to be granted to these builders, with follow-up along the line with AIPs progress. Transparency.

What is an area of expertise that you will be bringing to the table?

JasonJape: As a director of a Nasdaq-listed company that focuses on Fintech and financial solutions, I have developed strong relationships within the industry, government sectors, and institutions. In particular, I gained valuable experience from assisting and aligning with APEFEST HK. I believe my expertise in relationships and communications can contribute to the DAO, AIP authors, and builders, serving as a blueprint and reference for other communities and builders in different countries to collaborate. Additionally, I have learned a great deal from our successful AIP-314. Effective communication and a clear future vision are crucial for the success of an AIP.

Are there any factors in your life that may limit your time and ability to serve? (Running a business, extensive traveling, secret agent for the SEC, etc…)

JasonJape: I have been full-time in web3 for the past 2.5 years, during which I was known as “Jason doesn’t sleep🙈”. I have been active on spaces at all times, even in awkward time zones. Yes, I regularly manage Elite Apes and have a great partner, @steveape, as well as a great team at Elite Apes who handle everyday community interactions. Managing EA is also a part of the process of building APEDAO since we are in this together.

On Sundays, I mostly take time off. I delegate my time to Church and Family. Still cant help myself participating spaces sometimes thou.

What is your least favorite thing right now with our DAO in its current state?

JasonJape: Great AIPs have failed due to a lack of communication with $ape holders and communities, which resulted in a failure to earn their trust.

Currently, many of the proposals are determined by large wallets, there are many grumblings about it though I stand neutral on this; if possible, would you change this? and if so, how and why?

JasonJape: I am neutral on this matter as it pertains to the fundamentals of a DAO and the distribution of voting power. However, I strongly believe that no vote is too small. Our focus should be on actively engaging and involving small holders and delegates, whom I refer to as “0x wallets,” by educating them and demonstrating the value of APEDAO. By doing so, communities will witness the impact and willingly participate.

Will you be an active participant in the DAO even if unelected?

JasonJape: I have been actively building ever since. I have dedicated my time, health, and wealth to the DAO and the community. I hope the success and results of our hard work speak for themselves.

Thanks FoxSlightly for these meaningful questions. Hope i have answered your questions. i am just replying from my heart. I have learnt alot more of myself answering them.

Cheers bro

Hey Jason! Here to support your campaign! Keep it up my man!!

Jason is a selfless hardworking individual that is extremely giving in his time and energy, he believes in the NFT and ApeCoin eco system and has been there for several communities. I have no doubt that Jason will leverage all his contacts and try to open doors for the wider implementation of ApeCoin, particularly in the SEA region, where adoption may come faster than other areas. You will definitely have my vote Jason and looking forward to supporting you to BUILD! CLIP… CLIP!! :wink:
