Disabled Apes Lightpaper
Disabled Apes is a community focused project, supporting those with impairments and health conditions. The project strives to bridge those from the traditional world into the inclusive and accessible Web3.0 environment. We aim to achieve this through development of the first launchpad specifically aimed at supporting projects for less-abled people, and the creation of the world’s first metaverse virtual disability focused social hub.
The cryptocurrency space removes many boundaries and roadblocks for those less-abled. With the new Web3.0 system circled around blockchain technology and tokenization; talent can shine regardless of one’s impairments and health conditions. Disabled Apes launchpad encourages those with disabilities to take the step from the traditional world into the Metaverse. Permissionless and decentralised; the Disabled Apes launchpad embodies the Web3.0 vision.
Disabled Ape Social Hub
Current disability centres are inaccessible for many leading to a feeling of isolation. We aim to rectify both of these issues through creation of the Disabled Apes Social Hub, enabled through recent technological developments in the blockchain / gaming sector. Accessible to all,people can come and talk through issues, share experience, and ultimately provide support to one another.Inside the Hub a Health Clinic platform will be available and our community will be able to get help from a psychologist , psychiatrist, chiropractor etc.We aim to positively influence the lives of the Disabled Apes community.
Start UP Program
Accessible to all, those with and without disabilities, through our Start UP Program ,members can have access to free business courses while encouraging collabs so people can team up and potentially launch a project through our Start Up Program.
This Start-up Program will allow users to submit their business plan on our portal and after thorough checks, 10 best projects will be voted through our DAO and set in motion on our Launchpad .
Once our first stage from the Roadmap will be completed , we will open the portal so members can submit their business plan and projects .
Disabled Apes is a project built for the community. Blockchain technology was created by Satoshi Nakamoto for the people. We hold the values of Satoshi close. Therefore, the community will shape the course of the project, influencing steps we take. Community members can voice their opinions on the project’s Discord channel and vote for proposals through the Disabled Apes DAO.
Through creation of the Disabled Apes DAO, we allow for the project to be truly decentralised. Users can vote on DAO proposals with the governance token of Disabled Apes $DAPE.
$DAPE is the governance token of Disabled Apes. The token is a core part of the Disabled Ape ecosystem. Through holding the $DAPE token, users can conduct the following:
- Governance — Vote and on DAO proposals
- Launchpad — Invest in listed Launchpad projects through depositing $DAPE
- Monetary Transfer — Send monetary value to other users with the $DAPE token
The $DAPE token embodies decentralisation.Based on a first initial supply of 5,555 NFT, with no private / pre-sale, 60% of the total tokens have been allocated for the community through Start-up Funds, rewards and airdrops.
Through active ecosystem participation, users can rapidly further their $DAPE holdings.

The images created bear all the hall-marks of contemporary absurdism which takes the viewer on a journey through the imagination, where the only limits are that of human creativity.
An ape, dressed in human clothes, sits on a wheelchair in front of a contemporary background. The rarity of the NFT depends on the specific combination of features such as the detail of the eyes to the colours and pattern of the background.
The image itself is whimsical, but it has a meaningful purpose: helping to support those with disabilities. This is demonstrated as a percentage of mint revenue (6%) which will go to help the founder, Sabin, fund surgery for his cerebral palsy.
Each Disabled Ape NFT is generated from over 100 possible traits, making every NFT minted unique.
