Leading Layer 2 Scaling Solution and Web3 Gaming Platform Immutable X
Allows ApeCoin Community to Experience Instantaneous, Gas-Free Minting and Trading
SYDNEY, July 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Immutable X, Ethereum’s Leading Layer 2 scaling solution, is partnering with Kolex, the prominent NFT collectibles platform, to celebrate ApeCoin DAO by minting 100,000 free NFTs for APE token holders. To ensure simple and seamless transactions for the community, APE has already been whitelisted on Immutable X’s Layer 2 protocol, so all NFTs can be priced in $APE.
This is a follow-up to Immutable’s AIP Idea: Immutable X to be ApeCoin DAO’s Trusted Layer 2 Scaling Partner proposal, submitted in May 2022, to build out Otherside, the Bored Ape Yacht Club metaverse, on the Immutable X protocol.  Since ApeCoin DAO voted to remain on Ethereum, Immutable X is excited to continue building trust with the community by partnering with Kolex to offer free NFTs to its community.
APE Coin holders who have $APE in their wallets as of 9:00 AM PST Monday, August 1st will be able to claim a free NFT pack at 9:00 AM PST Wednesday, August 3rd. The claim period will last seven days. $APE holders will be able to mint their free NFT at (going live later this month). All secondary market fees and sales of NFTs after the free mint period will be donated to a charity selected by the ApeCoin DAO community. 100,000 NFTs will be made available during the claim period, after which any unclaimed NFTs will be sold, with proceeds going to a charity selected by the DAO, or burned, if anything remains after a 30 day period.
"Immutable X and Kolex are excited to gift this to the ApeCoin DAO community, allowing all APE holders to experience the instantaneous, gas-free minting and trading experience on Immutable X, while directly benefiting the APE token," said Robbie Ferguson, co-founder of Immutable.
"Immutable X is excited to continue building trust with the ApeCoin DAO community and proving why Immutable X is the trusted and preeminent Layer 2 Scaling Partner on Ethereum."
