A decentralized autonomous organization leads the ApeCoin ecosystem (DAO) called the ApeCoin DAO. APE holders can become members of the DAO and have a say in ecosystem matters. The APE Foundation also supports the ApeCoin ecosystem and carries out actions decided upon by the ApeCoin DAO. The ApeCoin project claims that APE has a capped supply of 1 billion, and there is no ability to create additional APE tokens or burn existing ones. The total amount of APE that NFT holders could claim was 15% of the 1 billion supply. APE is available on various well-known crypto exchanges.
