ApeCoin (APE)

APE is an ERC-20 token that powers the APE Ecosystem and was inspired by Yuga Labs’ Bored Ape Yacht Club, the famous NFT project consisting of 10,000 ape illustrations on the Ethereum blockchain. It’s also a governance token which allows its holders to participate in decision making in ApeCoin DAO. The token is used within the APE Ecosystem to empower a decentralized community on the forefront of web3 in the fields of art, gaming, entertainment, and events. Its intended use is to access games, merchandise, and various services with holders gaining exclusive access to certain parts of the ecosystem.

The goal of APE is to support new developments in regard to blockchain’s impact on culture underpinned by web3 technology. The creators designed it as a decentralized protocol layer for community-led initiatives. The founders’ idea stemmed from the endless possibilities for blockchain’s influence on the cultural aspects of society which can’t possibly all be predicted yet.

APE’s total supply is permanently fixed at 1 billion tokens, all minted at once.

Maple (MPL)

MPL is the token powering Maple, a decentralized corporate crypto-capital network built on Ethereum and Solana. The platform wants to redefine capital markets through cryptocurrencies by offering borrowers and lenders efficient and transparent financing entirely on the blockchain. Maple is on a mission to expand the digital economy by providing uncollateralized lending to institutional borrowers and income opportunities to private lenders. Their protocol uses smart contracts to remove time and cost frictions, and blockchains for immutability. The result is a decentralized and secure venue for institutions and private investors alike.
