The ApeCoin community has overwhelmingly supported a proposal to pursue the establishment of ā€œ.APEā€ as a new top-level domain (TLD), with a significant majority of 91.68% voting in favor.

This initiative is to be spearheaded by D3, a specialist in Web3 domains, following the community's decision.

The proposal aims to collaborate with ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) ā€” the global authority on domain names and IP addresses.

This move aligns with ICANN's agenda to introduce new generic top-level domains (gTLDs) by the second quarter of 2026, positioning the .APE TLD as a noteworthy real-world asset stemming from the ApeCoin decentralized autonomous organization (DAO).

The decision highlights the community's commitment to expanding its digital footprint and enhancing its presence in the digital domain sphere.
