sorry, i am not a fan of apecoin, mostly because i think it hurts the NFT space to bring in tokens, as token communities are generally hyper toxic and desperate— Shibetoshi Nakamoto (@BillyM2k) March 18, 2022
as tokens do the hype and crash thing like every token does, often people start to get pretty obnoxious about it all

@tedtalksmacro, a cryptocurrency analyst, analyzed the unlock schedule of ApeCoin. The total supply of ApeCoin is capped at 1 billion tokens. 28% of the token's supply is currently circulating across exchanges, and the remainder would be released consistently, increasing downward pressure on the NFT token.
Based on the unlock schedule, the analyst argues $56 million worth of ApeCoins would be unlocked every month, increasing the selling pressure on the circulating supply on Binance, Coinbase and other cryptocurrency exchanges. This could influence ApeCoin price negatively.
