The Apecoin community is in the midst of discussing whether or not the crypto asset should remain within the Ethereum ecosystem. While AIP-41 voting started today, the proposal’s voting process will end on June 8, 2022, at 9 p.m. (ET). Meanwhile, the project’s native token APE has lost 57% against the U.S. dollar in the last 30 days.
Migrating to a different chain is a costly, risky, and complex endeavor with many moving parts that may, if not thoughtfully considered, result in catastrophic loss, or at worst, abandonment by Yuga Labs and other entities that would otherwise meaningfully to Apecoin.
The cost to move an ERC20 asset like apecoin (APE) can be more costly than a simple ether transfer. Apecoin’s value has dropped a great deal as the crypto asset is down 77.3% from its April 28 all-time high tapping $26.70 per APE. During the past month, APE is down 57% and seven-day statistics indicate apecoin has dropped 4.9% in value. APE has an overall market capitalization of around $1.77 billion today, and apecoin has seen $252 million in 24-hour global trade volume.
