ApeCoin Staking Coming on Halloween
Blockchain firm Horizen Labs in a tweet on September 23 announced that ApeCoin’s staking system Ape Staking is tentatively scheduled for October 31. Also, the date could move by a week in case of delays due to unforeseen circumstances.
“In lieu of today’s postponed spaces, we wanted to share the go-live date for Ape Staking, which is currently scheduled for October 31st. That date may move left or right by a week. We’ll keep you posted.”
ApeCoin community in May voted to select Horizen Labs to build a staking platform for ApeCoin that rewards users who stake APE, Bored Ape, Mutant Ape, and Bored Ape Kennel Club NFTs in their respective pools.
Earlier this month, Horizen Labs shared the staking platform’s user interface consisting of a dashboard, four staking pools, and market tools.
Furthermore, the ApeCoin community has also approved Snag Solutions’ “AIP-98: A Community-First ApeCoin DAO Marketplace Proposal – Brand Decision” proposal for a separate NFT marketplace for Apes powered by ApeCoin (APE). The community has turned down the other two proposals due to more costs. Thus, it allows Snag Solutions to build an NFT marketplace to slash transaction fees, increase user experience, and increase APE utility.
