As an outcome, Yuga Labs was concerned with the conclusion that an Apecoin Chain was possibly the very best option, as seen in the following Tweet.
We’re sorry for shutting off the lights on Ethereum for a while. It appears clear that ApeCoin will require to move to its chain to correctly scale. We’d like to motivate the DAO to begin believing in these instructions.
