Welcome, Apes! We are thrilled to share a transformative update for the Doork East community, one we believe that will enrich the entire Ape Society.

With an overwhelming support from our community, we decided to open our doors to anyone holding an Ape.

Our Vision

Our doork culture is centered around having a good time together in the imaginary world we’ve created, rallying around our shared passion for the Apes we love. We aim to give them a tribune, a place to celebrate and grow together.

What will change?

๐Ÿฆ Access to Doork East

Previously, membership of Doork East was limited to cabin owners, and that was creating a barrier to entry.

We decided to make our community the home for anyone holding an Ape, thereby removing the barriers to entry and expanding our reach.ย Apes will be able to simply chose the “Doork” role in Discord and join the Doorks!

๐Ÿ“– Our Branding & Magazine

Our branding will remain the same and the Magazine will continue to be published.

We will retain the lore, the map, and the districts in our lore, but we won’t rely on NFT cabins anymore, although they will continue to exist in our imagination.

More Apes will be able to participate in the creation of the Magazine and have fun together!

๐ŸŽ–๏ธThe Doork East Badge

The Doork East Badge will now be accessible to everyone as a layer they can add to their Ape:

๐Ÿ”นYou can download the Badge layer here: https://doorkeast.com/images/badge.png
๐Ÿ”นUse https://pinetools.com/overlay-images to pin the badge layer on your Ape!

Example of badge overlay made using Pinetools (and using their point select feature to move the badge a little bit to the left so there’s no overlap with the body trait):


Instead of having a separate Discord, we will join the main TAS Discord and have a dedicated channel there.

๐Ÿ”นFirst, you’ll have to opt for the “Doork” role here: https://discord.com/channels/898080421005385808/949394848560058388/1086284898479906837
๐Ÿ”นOnce you have opted in the Doork role, the #doork-east channel is available here: https://discord.com/channels/898080421005385808/1243588521399287848

Benefits for the community

๐ŸŒ Inclusivity: Allowing all Ape holders to join will foster a more inclusive community.

๐Ÿ’Ž Value Preservation: Focusing on all Apes, rather than a separate NFT collection, will help align our interest with all Apes and avoid the negative effects of dilution and focus on Apes.

๐ŸŽจ Creative Freedom: By opening up to more members, we can enhance our creative endeavors and cultural activities.

๐Ÿ“ฃ Brand Leverage: Enabling every TAS member to leverage their Ape as a brand through the reach of the Magazine will bring more value and recognition to the entire community.

Mission Continuation

Our mission remains to provide a space where everyone can gather to be creative and have fun. We will continue to nurture the distinctive TAS culture, while opening our doors to new members and ideas. This will help everyone within TAS leverage their Ape as a brand or just have fun.

We believe this change will bring immense value to the whole TAS community and help us grow stronger together as we move to a new chain.

Letโ€™s make the Doork East spirit shine bright this onchain summer!
