❗️ Why It Matters
The special council on the APE Foundation essentially serves as the ApeCoin DAO's "Board". It provides, at the behest of the ApeCoin DAO members, oversight of the Foundation administrators. The purpose of the Board is to administer DAO proposals and serve the vision of the community, and it meets on proposals requiring administrative review under ApeCoin DAO rules.
With the Otherside looming and the metaverse platform being powered by ApeCoin, these positions seemingly take on increased importance.
