In total, 62% of the total token supply will ultimately be allocated to the DAO, 16% to Yuga Labs, 14% to launch contributors, and 8% for the founders.
According to a Twitter thread from the official Coinbase Assets account, Coinbase will support APE on an experimental basis beginning tomorrow at 16:00 UTC, assuming key liquidity thresholds are met.
