Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) has voted to raise $2 million from its Treasury funds to fund the NFT’s marketplace projects. Ape Drops is the official marketplace of Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC), currently operated by Manifold Studio. According to the Ape Drops marketplace, the proposal is a written plan for the present and the future and aims to establish a stable marketplace funded by the Treasury Funds.

Can BAYC create a legacy in the NFT world?

The idea behind AIP 29 is to create a legacy as pioneering protagonists in the NFT world. As revealed in their tweet on May 12, Ape Drops plans to establish a first of its kind $APE ecosystem.

After the AIP went live Friday, there was a plea to vote in favor of the proposal and a fervent desire from Ape Drops to “start building cool shit for $APE,” in their own words. The rationale for the proposal (AIP 29) is to ensure a weekly release of multiple composite NFT drops from its AIP by funding the Ape Drops marketplace with $2 million drawn from its Treasury funds.

The budgeted $2 million has been clearly and transparently allocated to two groups; Treasury allocation and team salary. $1.14 million of the $2 million is allocated to Treasury Allocation, while the other $860k has been budgeted for Team Salary.

The proposal also included future consideration, as future drops are intended to be a mix of new artists entering the scene and already established artists. Current NFT drops have featured big names in the industry such as rap icons, Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa. The Ape Drops platform strives for deep involvement of the $APE community in artistic expression.
