This project aims to become one of the highest-ranked projects in the NFT space overall and ultimately the top project on Polygon, paving the way for other projects on the Polygon blockchain to gain recognition. For too long, expensive and highly ranked NFT projects have been dominated by the Ethereum blockchain. Considerable funds have been spent on gas fees instead of being utilized to develop communities and provide investors with more value. For instance, over $150 million has been wasted on gas fees during the Otherside NFT Mint. It is now time for all NFT investors to support Polygon, the fast and gas-free blockchain. This project is designed to serve as a remarkable example of a well-planned project with genuine utilities and benefits for investors.
Provide an opportunity for individuals who are captivated by the Bored Ape Yacht Club but cannot afford it to own Alien Apes from Apelion, along with a fractional share of the original Bored Ape (specific details described in the utility section below).
Extend support to all business owners who invest in this project by offering them free promotion in exchange for exclusive discounts to our holders (specific details described in the utility section below).
Foster the growth of an incredibly active community!
Before the Bored Ape Yacht Club, there was a collection called CryptoPunks which held the title of the most expensive NFT in the field. This was mainly due to it being considered the first NFT collection released in 2017. Therefore, people understood why it commanded such a high price and where its value originated. However, what Bored Apes accomplished was truly remarkable! Bored Apes not only captivated people's hearts as a collection, but they also soared to the top, surpassing all other collections. When we first started out together a year ago, we could have viewed Bored Apes as competitors. Yet, in reality, Bored Apes and Yuga Labs were our pioneers who propelled the industry forward, paving the way for subsequent collections to achieve great success and inspiring many to join the NFT space. We firmly believe that without Bored Apes, many NFT companies would not exist today!
That's precisely why we are paying tribute to Bored Apes and Yuga Labs with this collection. Although we are not affiliated with Yuga Labs, we would certainly love to be! If Yuga Labs had shown interest in Polygon, it could have greatly boosted the blockchain. However, since Yuga Labs has not displayed any inclination towards Polygon, we are stepping up to the forefront. We believe that if there's a project that can replicate the impact Bored Apes had on Ethereum, it must inherit the essence of Bored Apes. And that's why we present Apelion Apes!
The Project Utilities: Empowering Apes Holders
All utilities are operated through Discord, and all announcements are published via Twitter. Before you delve into the details, make sure to join our Discord community and follow the Twitter accounts of Originative, AAIC, and don't forget to enable notifications by clicking 🔔 the bell icon.
To align with our stated objectives, this project offers a range of utilities:
Staking: Apes holders who choose to disable the sell function and hold their Apes long-term will receive $Apelion tokens. These tokens can be used to purchase more NFTs from our marketplace or exchanged for $ETH using the staking liquidity pool, which will be created using community funds. Of course, holders can re-enable the sell function and cease staking/receiving $Apelion tokens at any time.
Community Assets: A portion of the community funds will be invested in acquiring original Bored Apes and Mutant Apes, with all benefits distributed among Apelion Citizens holders.
Marketing/Discounts: This project pioneers the use of marketing as a utility among NFT projects. Apelion Citizens who are business owners will receive free marketing for their products or services in exchange for offering exclusive discounts to other Apelion Citizens. As an Ape holder, we will assist you in marketing your physical or NFT/crypto products—an invaluable utility. Non-business owner Apes holders will also enjoy exclusive discounts on physical and NFT/crypto products.
NFT Marketplace: Following the project's launch, our Originative marketplace will transition into a Polygon marketplace operating with $Apelion tokens. Apes holders developing exceptional NFT Polygon projects will receive free listings on our marketplace, with 100% of the sales fee distributed among $Apelion tokens holders.
Metaverse: A portion of the community funds will be allocated to acquiring lands in the metaverse, granting Apes holders free access to events. If non-Apes holders wish to join, they will need to pay a fee that will be entirely distributed among Apelion Citizens holders. Furthermore, Ape holders who are developers will have the opportunity to build on our land plots and earn a licensing fee upon selling their designs.
Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO): Owning an Ape provides voting rights for shaping future community decisions.
Private Channels: Discord is our primary platform. Exclusive discounts on physical and NFT/crypto products will be shared solely in private channels accessible to Apes holders. Voting for decisions will also take place within these private channels. Access to these private channels requires following the instructions in the #collabland-join channel on our Discord, where you can connect your wallet for verification. No direct messages (DMs)!
Encouraging Active Holders: To achieve great things, it is the responsibility of every member in our vibrant community to actively promote this project. In line with our goals, a portion of the community funds will reward notable active members who contribute to taking this project "to the moon," or rather, "to the Earth," considering they are aliens 👽 😂
