Anyone wishing to participate in the Creators Contest as a creator or voter needs to hold Apollo tokens in a self-custody wallet.
Requires more steps and therefore best for those users with some crypto experience or for those willing to learn.
DeFi Wallets are readily available from many sources such as Coinbase and Metamask and allow you to control your crypto yourself vs allowing an exchange to do it for you.
If you want to nominate yourself for a contest or vote for creators in a contest, this is the one for you.
Fewer steps and only one account makes it easier for those new to crypto.
Buy crypto with a debit or credit card.
