This AIP proposes a novel approach for ApeChain development by prohibiting the use of a traditional Request for Proposal (RFP) process and instead coordinating a consolidated voting period for multiple existing ApeChain proposals. This method aims to streamline decision-making and enhance community involvement. The simultaneous voting, scheduled for a two-week period at the end of January 2024, is designed to expedite decision-making and maximize community participation in this pivotal development phase.
The ApeCoin DAO is currently considering multiple proposals for the ApeChain project, indicating a healthy interest and diverse innovation. A traditional RFP process, in this context, may lead to delays and limit the community’s involvement in the decision-making process. Instead, by facilitating the normal AIP process for these proposals and scheduling concurrent voting, the DAO can efficiently evaluate and choose the most favorable direction for ApeChain. This approach aligns with the ethos of DAOs, focusing on community-driven selection and decentralized decision-making.
- Prohibition of a RFP Process: Temporarily suspend the use of RFP for ApeChain to avoid potential delays and embrace a more inclusive, community-centric approach.
- Normal AIP Process for Current Proposals: Process all current ApeChain proposals through the standard AIP system, allowing each to be evaluated on its own merits and in alignment with community values.
- Coordinated Voting Schedule: Organize a two-week voting period at the end of January 2024 for all ApeChain proposals, facilitating a focused and decisive community vote.
BENEFIT TO THE APECOIN ECOSYSTEM:
- Efficient Decision-Making: Streamlines the decision-making process, enabling quicker and more effective choices for ApeChain’s future.
- Increased Community Participation: Fosters greater community engagement and democratic participation in a crucial decision, ensuring diverse input and perspectives.
- Clarity and Direction: Provides clear direction for ApeChain development, aligning with community preferences and strategic objectives.
STEPS FOR IMPLEMENTATION:
- Community Communication: Inform the community about this AIP, its rationale, and the benefits of a decentralized decision-making process.
- Voting Arrangements: Organize the logistics for the simultaneous voting process, ensuring transparency and accessibility.
- Conduct of Voting: Execute the voting period as planned, emphasizing an inclusive and transparent process.
