The Merchants fulfill the essential need of commerce. For any modern society, a banking system is needed to symbolize the value of labor, goods, and entertainment. Fully decentralized, the merchant class has kept the coffers of The Ape Society stocked for centuries.
Merchants receive 2% of revenue from non-frame items purchased and sold in The Ape Society Market, giving them incentive to continue their great work.
Merchants also receive rewards when staking their Ape, with a base multiplier of 1.45x.
