Why It Matters: Decentralized organization ApeCoinDAO recently launched ApeCoin as a token for culture, gaming and commerce to build out Web3 efforts. The token is a decentralized project inspired by Yuga Labs’ Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) non fungible token (NFT) project.

ApeCoin retweeted a post by Snoop Dogg that said the rapper and Wiz Khalifa have released a set of eight music tracks as NFTs themed on ApeCoin and BAYC. The collection is titled “Ape Drops 03” An 8th.”

Madonna also bought a BAYC NFT for $470,000 and said on Thursday she was "finally" going in on the metaverse.

Price Action: ApeCoin is down 5.2% during the past 24 hours, trading at $13.04 at press time.
