sorry, i am not a fan of apecoin, mostly because i think it hurts the NFT space to bring in tokens, as token communities are generally hyper toxic and desperate
as tokens do the hype and crash thing like every token does, often people start to get pretty obnoxious about it all

Coinbase, the largest cryptocurrency exchange by volume in the United States, announced ApeCoin’s listing on its platform today.
The developers launched ApeCoin behind the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT collection. The ApeCoin DAO is the decentralized organization that launched APE. Owners of Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs can receive APE tokens for free by claiming them on the official website of ApeCoin.
ApeCoin is available for traders on the world’s largest exchange, Binance and Coinbase. Binance unveiled trading for ApeCoin on its exchange platform for users.
On Seychelles-based cryptocurrency exchange OKX, APE became the asset with the fifth largest turnover in spot trading overnight.
@tedtalksmacro, a cryptocurrency analyst, analyzed the unlock schedule of ApeCoin. The total supply of ApeCoin is capped at 1 billion tokens. 28% of the token’s supply is currently circulating across exchanges, and the remainder would be released consistently, increasing downward pressure on the NFT token.
Based on the unlock schedule, the analyst argues $56 million worth of ApeCoins would be unlocked every month, increasing the selling pressure on the circulating supply on Binance, Coinbase and other cryptocurrency exchanges. This could influence ApeCoin price negatively.
