1. Community Initiatives
EAPES Trading Channel is BACK!
You asked and we listened, the EAPES TRADING CHANNEL IS BACK!
Link to trading channel here -> https://cutt.ly/xwaZbXv6
However, let’s not forget the importance of responsible trading.
While we’re excited to provide this platform, please note that EAPE will not be held liable for any lost items resulting from unfavorable trades or scammers. We strongly encourage you to utilize official marketplaces such as https://xoxno.com/ and https://kroganswap.com/ for all transactions.
Also, a quick reminder, P2P EAPES will not be eligible for community rewards or benefits.
P2P guidelines can be found here -> https://cutt.ly/FwaZnHzx
Good luck and happy trading!
Special Trait Staking Pool
Attention all Black Beanie EAPES!
You are selected to participate in the Special Pool for the next two weeks.
Please Note! If you have an EAPE with Black Beanie and would like to go to the special pool, you will have to unstake and re-stake it. It will then automatically be placed in the special pool.
Everyone in the old Special pool (French Flag) can now also unstake and re-stake so they are staked again in the normal pool.
Important Reminder: anyone who has staked in any old Special Trait Pool must unstake and restake their EAPES in order to continue receiving staking rewards. EAPES staked in old Special Trait Pools no longer receive WEGLD rewards.
Banana Points Claim Tool
Your EAPES work hard to earn you Banana Points. Currently, Bananas earned by individual EAPES are linked to that specific EAPE.
Claim Tool is now live! This means that you now have the option to ‘CLAIM’ your Banana Points to your account balance.
You can use the Claim Tool by visiting our dApp (under ‘My Account’): https://app.eapes.com/
Please note that if you claim the points from an EAPE, you can’t send them back. It is a one-way street! However, Banana Points must be claimed to use in the lotteries and Token trade-in once those features are rolled out.

2. Marketing Initiatives
EAPES Branding Guide
We are thrilled to announce the launch of our EAPES Branding Guide. This comprehensive guide has been designed to showcase our brand identity and guidelines, ensuring consistency and excellence in all our communications. Previously, we shared with you the Community Guide, and this one is the Complete Guide.
Click here to download on Discord -> https://cutt.ly/OwaZRhr5
The EAPES Branding Guide provides a detailed overview of our brand elements, including logo usage, color palette, typography, and other key design elements that contribute to our brand’s identity.
We have carefully crafted these guidelines to empower everyone associated with our brand to represent EAPES in a consistent and impactful manner. By adhering to these guidelines, we can maintain a cohesive and recognizable brand presence, enhancing brand awareness among our target audience.
We invite you to explore the EAPES Branding Guide. Familiarizing yourself with its contents will allow you to effectively leverage our brand elements and strengthen your association with EAPES, thereby increasing brand awareness and recognition.
Stay tuned for more updates and announcements in the coming weeks. If you have any questions or comments regarding the Branding Guide, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
3. Development Initiatives

The EAPES dAPP is now listed on the xPortal Hub!
We are happy to inform you that you can now make all your transactions through your phone on xPortal (under Hub > Finance). Check the community map and explorer, claim your rewards and claim your Banana Points! And in Q4, you’ll be able to use the Banana Points Exchange Program (BPEP) to exchange Bananas for EAPES Tokens through the Hub!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mihai and our beloved devs Ajamat and Tominou33 for the great work they’ve done on the code to make this a successful launch.
Go check it out and tell us what you think.
We are excited to introduce the Island Relics Staking Program to our community, heralding a significant milestone for our relics by enhancing their functionality and increasing their worth.

As previously announced, we are set to launch the EAPES Token in the fourth quarter.
Currently, we are devoting considerable efforts to meticulously designing the Tokenomics, aiming to imbue the token with substantial value. Our ambition is to cement the EAPES token’s position among projects renowned for their robust Tokenomics within the MultiversX industry, a goal to which we are unwaveringly dedicated.
We are taking a comprehensive approach that considers numerous crucial aspects, such as Utility and Demand — to ensure the token has real, tangible benefits for holders; Supply Management — to regulate the token’s availability and influence its value; Distribution — to maintain fair and balanced allocation; Security — to safeguard our system and users; Incentivization — to reward participation and promote healthy growth; Governance — to potentially offer an additional avenue for decision-making; and Legal Compliance — to ensure we operate within regulatory boundaries and many more. Our commitment to these elements underscores our pledge to deliver a strong and sustainable token ecosystem.
We are still working on the Deep Concept, thus developing a plan for the four poles: East, West, North, and South, identifying what types of environments will be found there, the types of activities, whether we will have a soccer stadium, a baseball field, a specific place for shows, the types of residences, reserves, certain types of environments will be more conducive to agriculture, others will be an ideal place to obtain a breathtaking view by the water, what are the first assets that will be launched, elaborating on the types and quantities for each, and much more.
In terms of 3D EAPES development, we are working on proportions and sculpting with a designer from Activision to speed up the process and eventually ensure with the community that the 3D EAPES are representative and loved from all angles. You should know that we are working in partnership with CyberPunk City and you should expect that some exciting announcements will be made in relation to this partnership in the coming weeks.
4. Partnerships and Collaborations
We’ve been closely following our Cyberpunk City friends, they have been hard at work during this past month as they had some cool developments
-Bug fixing during the Alpha V2
The highly anticipated Alpha version launch allowed the Cyberpunk City holders and fans to discover the game and help identify bugs you can ran to while playing the game. Over 150 bugs were fixed, from login problems, server crashes and in-game bugs.
It’s good to know that the purpose of the Alpha version of a game is to create a usable, efficacious and engaging experience. Identifying those bugs and fixing them is part of the process.
-Cyberpunk City meetup in Sibiu Romania
The Cyberpunk City team travelled to Sibiu, Romania to meet the MVX team (Beni included). We don’t have details on what was discussed between both teams but we for sure know that exciting stuff are being discussed and developed.
Also, what’s as important as meeting the MVX team? Meeting the community of course. The CPC team organized a meetup on July 16th to meet and discuss development with the Romanian CPC community.
The stunning Lumos Coffee and Brunch was booked to meet their community, the lucky attendees received some cool gifts; from merch, NFTs to $CYBER tokens.
-Cyberpunk City Virtual event
This event aims to become the largest virtual event on MultiversX to date.
No NFTs will be needed to join the event, which will include a maze contest, a mind-bending labyrinth that only the quickest can conquer! Be among the first 5 to finish and win great rewards.
Expect also an exclusive AMA inside the Metaverse (someone from the MVX team will join the event — we don’t know the identity of that person but it would be neat to see Danny Serb joining such a cool Virtual event) and other sub-event that will be announced soon.
We like to see our friends building at a good pace and we encourage you to keep following us as well to discover our next steps.
And last but not least, we would like to leave here our most sincere congratulations to our friend Halil (Co-Founder of Cyberpunk City) on his marriage. May the couple be very happy and have a life full of prosperity, health and love!
Thank you again for taking the time to read our 10th Edition EAPES Update Newsletter. Our next update will be on Thursday, August 31st, 2023.
