The App Store Foundation has implemented an ambitious incentives plan for developers to integrate the AppCoins SDK for in-app purchases in their apps and games. It’s very easy to get rewards in APPC, and the sooner you integrate the higher rewards you can get!
Two types of incentives are available:
1) Successful SDK integration
Starting on October 1st, developers with more than 5,000 downloads in any app store will get a reward of 10,000 APPC after completing the integration.
The SDK integration can be done using the ASF SDK (basic functionalities) or any SDK by an AppCoins service provider (like BDS, with extended functionalities).
2) Weekly Reward
Every week, 125,000 APPC are distributed proportionally to the number of IAP transactions per game.
These funds are locked for a 12 month period. If the AppCoins network grows, the value of APPC will increase and the developers will benefit.
The sooner a developer joins, the better chances it’ll have to earn AppCoins since the competition for the 125,000 APPC pot will increase as more developers join.
In game theory and tokenconomics, this dynamics is called double network effects and it’s a way to share the success of AppCoins protocol with those who contribute to it.

There is also an incentive program for OEMs and app stores. Please contact the App Store Foundation or BDS team to know the details.
