Tokenproof is assisting Yuga in securely verifying the ownership of participants and distributing tickets for the event this year.
Tokenproof is a company that deals in secure token-gating systems. NFT owners can carry proof of possession tokens connected to both their Ethereum wallet and their smartphone via their application. Users can verify the rights of their NFTs and other assets after registering. Yuga Labs is saying publicly that the tokenproof app will become the sole method to obtain tickets for and access ApeFest at Pier 17.

Finally, Yuga advises owners that they must present their BAYC/MAYC token in the wallet in use for Tokenproof enrolment throughout the event. Transferring it out of the wallet will render it ineligible for ticketing, according to the article.
