A collection of 7000 ape NFTs, with a highly active community and DAO that supports builders and evangelists in the ecosystem that push the community forward.
There are seven different classes of Ape in The Ape Society on Cardano: nobles, royal advisors, military officers, merchants, explorers, artists, and craftsmen. These are then grouped into thirty five families (yet to be released).
Owners of these NFTs can use The Society's coin to purchase frames and upgrades for their NFT. Each NFT has its own unique perks in The Society ecosystem.
The Scoiety's token is distributed in various ways to holders and is used to upgrade the Cabin NFTs. These are virtual spaces that can be filled and decorated with various items bought using The Society's token. Only the Craftsmen can build these items and there is a dedicated marketplace for selling them.
The Ape Society lore goes as so:
Long ago, there was a world full of unrefined, barbaric apes. They would consistently attack others with no regard for consequence. In times of surplus, they would accumulate more and more and more. In times of shortage, they would inject fear, uncertainty, and doubt everywhere they went, quickly selling all of their valuables in a panic. Instead of giving themselves names, they would refer to each other by number. It was every ape for themselves, and the concept of family and community was nowhere to be found.
One day, a young ape decided that he wanted to see change. He gave himself a name: Giambuono de’ Medici. Giambuono realized that every ape for themselves was not something that could sustain growth and progress. He toiled over this thought, gained a following, and when he came of age created what is now known as The Ape Society. He split his following into 7 classes — nobles, royal advisors, military officers, merchants, explorers, artists, and craftsmen — each of which was necessary for the society to survive and prosper. As time progressed, these 7 classes were grouped into 35 families, each with their own story of emergence and promise for the future. That future begins now.
