What are your thoughts on Web3 Development and ApeChain?

I believe ApeChain and the upcoming ecosystem is the best opportunity we have right now for the DAO to generate revenue sooner rather than over time. Web3 Development WG came in right on time.

We need a comprehensive framework and a set of standardized building blocks that ecosystem projects can build upon. This framework should streamline the processes and establish clear guidelines for revenue sharing with the DAO. By providing such a structure, we can help independent developers become valuable contributors to the ecosystem, while offering them support and access to the tools and resources that the DAO provides.

For example, ConsenSys, a for-profit corporation, offers various tools (such as Infura and MetaMask) and consulting services to the Ethereum ecosystem. This approach not only supports the ecosystem’s growth but also ensures a sustainable revenue model for both ConsenSys and the projects within the ecosystem.

By adopting a similar model, we can create a symbiotic relationship between the DAO and the developers, fostering innovation and growth while maintaining financial sustainability and mutual benefit.


Good luck for the candidacy Romantik! Executing and making s**t happen seems to be your forte, which I love.
