  • APE community passes AIP-209 proposal to build APE Accelerator.
  • ApeCoin DAO’s $APE jumped 7% following the announcement.
  • Crypto whales react with large moves, including long positions.

Animoca’s Forj, a community-based learning management system owned and operated by Animoca Brands, shook hands with ApeCoin DAO to open APE Accelerator. The brand-new innovation hub provides valuable information and power-ups for builders.

Notably, ApeCoin’s decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) funded APE Accelerator’s launchpad after the Bored Ape community voted to pass the proposal (AIP-209).


AIP-209 delegated Forj to build the new project incubator, presented to the public in a tweet by Forj’s Harry Liu. The five-second video clip urges developers to check out the new dedicated innovation accelerator website, while Liu highlights three advantages of Ape Accelerator:

  • The latest developer tools
  • Industry leader expertise
  • Launchpad based on $APE

ApeCoin Inks 7% on APE Accelerator Launch

In addition to the 9.33% ricochet from its all-time lows, $APE now effectuates a bullish concentration on-chain signal. This means that crypto whales are on alert again – blockchain smart money tracker LookOnChain spotted a whale cashing out $1.49 million in $APE.

Following the news, ApeCoin gained 4.3% in the last 24 hours, equalling the score in the monthly charts. APE was trading in a descending parallel channel throughout September and October but bounced back from its all-time lows at $1.01, hit on October 10, 2023.

Interestingly, the crypto whale accumulated APE between January and May at an average price of $4.28, buying large chunks from Binance and several decentralized crypto exchanges. Meanwhile, pro-crypto trader BNB Bull declared a long position on $APE after years of shorting the monkey-themed memecoin from its nearly all-time high at $25.

On the Flipside

  • The all-time high set at $26.70 was mostly due to the success of the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT collection. 
  • The blue-chip NFT collection gathered a vast community of crypto enthusiasts, but the Web3 giant Yuga Labs eventually disassociated with the token, leaving the governance up to ApeCoin DAO’s hands.
