  • AIP 382: Brinc, a portfolio company of gaming software development firm Animoca Brands has requested $250,000 worth of APE tokens and an additional 200,000 APE for two Builder House events and an invitation for five winners to join the Brinc and Animoca Web3 Accelerator. Currently 98.68% of votes are against the proposal.

ApeCoin recently unlocked $26.05 million in APE tokens on February 17. This accounts for 2.61% of APE’s circulating supply. Following the token unlock, APE price hit its 2024 peak of $1.912 on Tuesday. Since then, APE price suffered a correction. 

APE price could revisit its 2024 peak

APE price is $1.704 at the time of writing. The metaverse token is currently in an uptrend. Since its 2024 peak, APE price has corrected, however two technical indicators, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) and Awesome Oscillator (AO) support a recovery thesis. 

The green bars on MACD and AO suggest that ApeCoin’s uptrend is intact and the metaverse token has positive momentum. APE price could revisit its 2024 peak at $1.912.

If APE price sees a daily candlestick close below the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement of its rally to 2024 high, at $1.652, the metaverse token could correct further and sweep support at the 50% Fibonacci retracement, $1.572.
