One member, Machi Big Brother (machibigbrother.eth), voted against the proposal using 1.2 million ApeCoin, representing ~30% of the total votes against the proposal.
Following the approval of AIP-41, no ApeCoin Improvement Proposal (AIP) on the migration of ApeCoin from Ethereum can be proposed for three months.
“Now it’s time for the DAO to get to work on an amendment to the proposal process that is better suited to the complexity of moving ApeCoin to another chain,” Matt Galligan, who co-authored the AIP, told Decrypt.
Divided ApeCoin community
Given the hotly-contested decision, not everyone in the ApeCoin community is content with the outcome.
Many are worried about the three-month gap until the next proposal, as it may dampen the demand and curiosity surrounding the ecosystem.
“This is a cryptocurrency, and pausing any decisions for 3 full months, PLUS the time to vote and actually take action, is anything but simple.” tweeted a community member. “This has the ability to completely destroy the value of APE.”
“This AIP doesn’t make sense. We should spend time on growth/adoption” tweeted Bradly Zastrow, a community member. “Not passing proposals where we agree to do nothing.”
“I have to admit I’m rather concerned that we, The ApeCoin DAO, collectively voted to preemptively disregard ideas that have not yet been presented” tweeted another community member.
The DAO is poorly managed at this point. The team at the helm is clueless.
