APENFT Foundation Announced The Second Call of its $100 Million Art Dream Fund.
Singapore, Singapore, 2nd August, 2022, ChainwireAPENFT Foundation announces that the second call of its $100 million Art Dream Fund will launch on August 1st, and registration will close on October 30th. The theme for this year’s call is "Post-Human Era." This theme seeks to explore whether the future of humanity can transcend traditional self-centered humanism and how people should position themselves in a complex ecosystem consisting of non-human animals, plants, and cyborgs. Winners will be eligible to win from a prize pool of over $100,000. In addition to prizes, creators will also enjoy the opportunity to build their art studios in The Sandbox, a metaverse set to launch by APENFT and TRON. Creators will also be able to get involved in annual online and offline exhibitions curated by APENFT, workshops, artist residencies, and other educational events. TRON x APENFT exhibition hall in The Sandbox This call is open to creators of any age, nationality (not eligible for residents of UN- and OFAC-sanctioned countries or regions), and profession. It welcomes digital artworks submitted by individuals and teams in various mediums, including video, animation, virtual reality, augmented reality, sound art, and data-driven art, among others. "The most essential quality that distinguishes us from other calls is our core values—great inclusiveness and openness—which are also the values that govern the world of NFTs; here, every good work has a chance to be seen," emphasized Sydney Xiong, Director of the APENFT Foundation. "We've always been committed to nurturing and supporting young artists and creators who are open-minded, daring, imaginative, and able to inject fresh vitality into the art sphere." The same openness and inclusiveness permeate the review process of the Art Dream Fund. This year's review panel comprises more than ten artists, curators, auction experts, art professionals, and financial practitioners. We can expect this diversity in panel selections to introduce opinions from diverse areas such as art, finance, technology, and design, allowing for a more comprehensive assessment of submissions. Expert juries include Philip Tinari (Director of UCCA Center for Contemporary Art), Jonathan Crockett (Chairman of Asia at Phillips), Josh Baer (Art advisor), Sylvain Levy (Renowned collector), and Conlan Rios (Founder of Async Art); the Nomination and Selection Panel includes Cheng Ran (Contemporary Artist), Laura Shao from Hive Center for Contemporary Art, Kenny Schachter (art writer), Ciara Sun (Co-founder of C² Ventures), Claire Huang (Async Art Advisor & Columnist), Mimi Nguyen (Lecturer at the University of the Arts London). Together with community members, the Nomination and Selection Panel will designate 50 contestants for the final based on their votes. Themed on "Second Life," last year’s open call received over 500 artworks, among which Infinite Falling by WMD Studio won the first prize, and submissions of Verdi Jackson, Kong, Allyn Belfred, and Chengcheng Shi won the innovation prizes. In January 2022, all winning artworks were sold at an auction event at the online exhibition co-hosted by APENFT and LiveArtX in Cryptovoxels. This year, on top of the three existing awards, APENFT teamed up with Async Art to set up the “Async Visual-Audio Award” for programmable art to encourage experimentation and innovation in interactive art forms. As Conlan Rios, Founder of Async Art, expressed, “Async Art provides tools for everyone to create visual-audio interactive NFTs, without the necessity of mastering coding and programming knowledge. Through Async Visual-Audio Award, we invite artists to join us to turn the existing concept of art on its head and pave the way for a whole new category of programmable media. This is just the start, but we believe these simple building blocks will open up a world of possibilities for the creators out there, and we are really excited to see the genius ways people might use it.” Participants will have the opportunity to attend the workshops co-organized by APENFT and Async Art and potentially receive Blueprints-based NFT airdrops. WMD Studio, Infinite Falling (2021), digital animation, source: WMD Studio Another highlight of this year's Art Dream Fund is that during the call and the selection, APENFT will co-host three online forums with ArtReview to discuss NFT discourse in the art world, the influence of the metaverse on art creation, and NFT collection and sponsorship. The dates and guests of the forums will be announced soon. Please stay tuned. The open call of the 2022 Art Dream Fund has started, application will close on October 30th. For more registration details, please visit: About Art Dream Fund The Art Dream Fund was co-sponsored by H. E. Justin Sun, founder of TRON, and Sydney Xiong, Director of APENFT Foundation, in 2021. It aims to identify, nurture, and support quality NFT artists through the $100 million fund. Apart from the funding support for art creation, the Foundation will also advise award winners on marketing, publicity, copyright protection, and legal affairs.

Blockchain Gaming & The State of The Market
As the cryptocurrency market falls deeper into another familiar winter, one game built on the blockchain continues to assert its prowess in the future of the gaming industry. Splinterlands, the fantasy-based collectible card game now [the leading worldwide Web 3.0 dapp], is preeminent among these. It was “born in a bear market,” as major player, investor, and community streamer Neal McSpadden says, and continues to grow through another one. In 2018, as the market suffered a similar crash and financial devastation was wrecking many previously promising Web 3.0 projects (and the wallets of their enthusiasts), the game–conceived and brought to life by lifelong gaming lovers Jesse “Aggroed” Reich, the company’s CEO, and Matt Rosen–caught the attention of a strong niche of users on the Hive (HIVE) blockchain. Through the drama of ups and downs native to the crypto market, Splinterlands has thrived since its beginning, rapidly acquiring within four years millions of registered users and active players regularly hitting the 500,000 person threshold. In March, it blew past the substantive milestone of 2 billion plays, and continues to onboard hundreds of new users daily, even while the market bleeds red. The current bear market began its descent in early November of 2021, and since then has seen a 70%+ decline across all projects. Many companies and coins have completely collapsed or are on the brink of devastation for their investors and users. Blockchain gaming has also been severely scathed by market destruction, with Axie Infinity, the well-known NFT pet-collecting battle game, dropping more than 90% from its peak value, causing many to wonder if Web 3.0 games can keep their place as the future of the gaming industry. Splinterlands, along with games like Axie Infinity and Gala, have paved the way for the blockchain gaming industry over the last cryptocurrency development cycle. Even before the re-explosion of the more recent 2021 cryptocurrency market–which always draws in a new batch of curious players and investors–these companies were seeing growing interest around their games and thriving communities. Yet early in the adoption phase of Web 3.0, many around the world are still unaware of the unique aspects of blockchain gaming and play-to-earn, thinking only of the financial aspect so much a focus of the blockchain space. But blockchain technology has far more to offer than economic relevance. When it comes to blockchain gaming, its possibilities are extraordinarily player-enhancing, offering an extended utility to purchased in-game items and pieces that carry over value into both the real world and, as the industry grows, into other games. Many of these items currently exist in some form in the mainstream gaming world, including some primitive forms of robust in-game quasi-economies, but the blockchain offers innovative and compelling ways to more deeply incorporate these complex layers into player experience. For example, Web 3.0 collectibles can now take on a life of their own beyond iterations of the games, and have the capacity to become valuable outside of the games themselves. Axie Infinity largely brought these capacities into the public awareness. The game is known perhaps best by the tremendous humanitarian effects the game had (link to video) for its low GNI country users, especially in the Philippines. Many of these players were able, via blockchain-exclusive play-to-earn (P2E) mechanics, to pay their bills through the ravages of the worldwide economic shutdowns of 2020-2021. The game led the way in bringing blockchain gaming to the awareness of players both in and outside of the blockchain space, spurring interest even among many mainstream gamers around the world. Gala Games, another Web 3.0 company which has a variety of games built on the Ethereum blockchain, is still in its infancy, but has also successfully stretched the boundaries of gaming via the merits of blockchain technology. But the cryptocurrency downturn of the last few months has caused even such strong projects to suffer in the bear market. Axie Infinity in particular has been hit hard, especially alongside the Ronin Network hack that saw the game’s economy robbed of US$620 million in cryptocurrency. The blockchain gaming space at its current infant stage–like much of the Web 3.0 world–is not a place for those without a strong stomach. It maintains an undeniably promising future due to the exciting innovations it offers the industry, but early technological development is always a volatile process. In spite of these struggles, however, Splinterlands is seeing continued growth throughout this time of testing. With the blockchain space something of a wild west, there are a number of factors that play into which projects succeed and which collapse. But Splinterlands continues to thrive perhaps due to its combination of diligent laser-focus on community and frank communication via its Discord channel (good to link or no?), its low cost for new users, strong security interface, and committed investment in its nearly round-the-clock “edutainment” streaming channel, SplinterlandsTV, on Twitch, an Amazon (AMZN) video streaming service subset. But none of this would matter without a great game, which has been the Splinterlands focus since takeoff. “Knowing the challenges and volatility of the blockchain space, at Splinterlands we have always been hyper-focused on creating a great game that any gamer would love to play, separate from the play-to-earn tokenomics system,” said Jesse “Aggroed” Reich, Splinterlands Co-Founder and CEO. “We have always been committed to the best graphics, soundtrack, and top tier coding for incredible gameplay, and this is why I think we’ve seen growth through both bear markets, including now–we’re still seeing hundreds of new users daily.” “We know the merits of play-to-earn and are excited to be at this frontier of the inevitable future of gaming,” he continued. “But we will always, always put passion for the game itself first. Without a great game, none of the rest matters.” Many projects, as well as those which abuse the confusion of a new market, will prove weak for one reason or another during a bear market. Many in the blockchain space are aware of the way that earning mechanics can skew player motivations, leading to unsustainable drawbacks as the market contracts. For Splinterlands, the game’s intrinsic draw has therefore always been self-consciously paramount, with the Web 3.0 economic elements lending to enhanced gameplay rather than serving as the substrate for motivation. In Splinterlands, the in-game economy is set up to serve the experience and passion of gamers, offering an enriched way of trading and accomplishing level success, which all loops back into an enriched community. If companies don’t walk this line carefully, even if the game has strong fundamentals, the result can be devastating. Technology rushes are historically brutal, and Web 3.0 is no exception. As in the Dot Com Bubble circa 2000, which saw nearly every new Web 2.0 project fail, blockchain technology and its merits will be tested by its strongest projects and applications, not by those which for various reasons collapse under the struggles of new digital frontiers. Many people forget that Amazon suffered massive losses–not once, but multiple times–before becoming the transformative, dominant worldwide service known by all. Other companies that seemed clear winners have now been long forgotten. But Web 2.0 technology itself, although it left many of its earliest and most enthusiastic adopters in the dust, transformed everything from work to travel to commerce to communication, in ways such that worldwide history will long be distinguished between pre- and post- Web 2.0. While the Web 3.0 world suffers current losses and play-to-earn gaming is swept into that trend for the time being, blockchain gaming, like other groundbreaking technology before it, still has a bright future.

Napster To Launch Token On Algorand
The music streaming service outlined the launch of its $NAPSTER token on the Algorand blockchain in its latest litepaper. $NAPSTER Token Launching Soon The recently established non-profit organization, Napster Innovation Foundation, will be issuing $NAPSTER tokens on the Algorand blockchain to streamline the existing platform functionality for enhanced interactions between creators, rights holders, and music lovers. The streaming service detailed its plans for incorporating Web3 into its business in its latest Litepaper V1. Interim CEO of Napster, Emmy Lovell, stated, "We’re entering the streaming-plus era of music, which is one of the few scaled business sectors where adoption of blockchain tech actually makes immediate sense for everyone. People who make music, people who listen to it and those who own its IP all already depend heavily on technology. Web3 offers a chance to deepen, extend and improve the music ecosystem.” The Litepaper mentions that Algorand is the only carbon-negative blockchain infrastructure currently in existence, indicating Napster’s focus on sustainability. The Napster Network $NAPSTER will be capped at 10 billion tokens and will be used as a payment method for music subscriptions, exclusive content from specific artists, and premium features of the streaming service. Token holders can also use them to pay for goods and services on third-party applications interoperable with the Napster Network. The token will also enable fans to be a part of an exclusive content drop or even collaborate in the studio with their favorite band. For professional artists and music makers, the platform is launching a collection of tools and services called the Artists Studio, which will democratize opportunities, improve collaboration, and add supplementary revenue sources. Finally, the platform also caters to rights holders by providing rigorous security services regarding their IP and creating further commercial opportunities by increasing fan-artist interactions. Furthermore, the company is also planning on publishing open-source smart contracts that will enable the creation and distribution of digital content within the Napster Network. Web1 P2P To Web3 Blockchain Napster is one of the original pioneers of the peer-to-peer technology of the Web1 era. After being acquired by Best Buy, the Napster brand was revived in 2016. The global music streaming platform was acquired by a consortium led by Hivemind and Algorand in May 2022 and subsequently launched its new Web3-focused app in early June. Founder and CEO of Hivemind, Matt Zhang had commented on the acquisition, “Napster is a strong, self-sustaining business and an iconic brand. Our investment in the company reflects a longer term and far broader view than the short-term trading environment for crypto assets. Instead, we see a huge opportunity to build value over the long term, by applying Web3 programming to an existing, tech-enabled business.” Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Trading Simulation Tool Pollen Virtual Goes Live On Mainnet
Pollen, a decentralized crypto asset management platform, successfully completed the mainnet launch of Pollen Virtual. Pollen Virtual is Pollen’s first trading simulation product and was deployed after a community vote. The launch lays the groundwork for other upcoming asset-backed Pollen indexes. Create, Manage, And Delegate To Virtual Portfolios Pollen Virtual is a trading simulation tool that allows users to create, manage, and delegate to virtual portfolios and generate signals for upcoming asset-backed Pollen Indexes. The simulation tool was launched after a community vote, in which it received overwhelming support and was voted in by 99% of PLN token holders. Testing Trading Strategies Pollen Virtual is the result of over two years of development, followed by six months of active testing that saw the participation of over 7000 community members. The simulation tool allows users to test out their trading strategies in a sandbox environment and encourages them to outperform the market, earning reputation and PLN tokens as rewards. Pollen Virtual builds on already existing token-reward-driven trading simulation concepts. Its proprietary reputation scoring algorithm and delegation features enable traders to highlight their abilities. Any trader that is less confident can entrust their PLN tokens to top performers in exchange for an 80% share in the profits. Laying The Foundation Of The Pollen Ecosystem While Pollen Virtual is a completely standalone project, it plays a critical role in laying the groundwork for the larger Pollen ecosystem, which is a circular, self-perpetuating asset management mechanism that will be completed with Pollen Indexes. Pollen incentivizes virtual trading through PLN token rewards and utilizes the collective intelligence of traders, converting it into signals which can be fed into pollen’s asset-backed, community-driven Pollen Indexes, which are slated to launch by Q4 of 2022. Speaking about the launch of Pollen Virtual and other related developments, Co-founder and Project Lead at Pollen, Philip Verrien, commented, “We are developing a living, breathing asset management ecosystem run by a hive mind – truly decentralized, community-driven, and meritocratic. The launch of Pollen Virtual is a first impulse which sets this hive mind’s cogs in motion. That our community voted so overwhelmingly in favor of bringing this product to market gives us all the more confidence that pollen is on the right track.” Pollen Virtual has a significant reward pool of 106 million PLN tokens which are to be distributed over four years. Users can access the reward pool through and are required to stake a minimum of 1 PLN to be able to create a portfolio or begin delegating.

Marketing Infrastructure for Web3 and Beyond
Remember when the internet was first starting to take off, and many people believed it was a passing fad that wouldn’t last? Myspace, then Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram all took off and revolutionized the way we connect with others and present our lives. The internet has had more eras than Madonna (or Taylor Swift, for the Gen Z’s). And here we are, on the verge of yet another massive shift. The next era of the internet, known as ‘Web3’, is still in its early stages but the image of what it will look like is becoming clearer day by day. As Web3 evolves, how brands behave and consume products will certainly also change. The Evolution of the Internet If marketers aren’t considering where the internet is going and why, it’s only a matter of time until they will be. But this is new territory for most, so understanding where we've been is helpful to inform where we might go. Web1 was the early days of the internet. There were lots of content consumers, but very few creators. Webpages were static and, interestingly, advertisements were banned. Digital marketing didn’t exist yet, so we were still relying on print, radio, TV, and other traditional mediums to get our messages out. During this time, community building still primarily happened in the real world. Early forms of social media existed, but not at the magnitude it does now. To this point, your community was primarily influenced by where you lived, studied and worked. Web2 is the internet as we have primarily known it and still think of it today. JavaScript brought webpages to life and expanded the potential of what was possible for content. As a result, we’ve seen a major boom with influential content creators. A lot of this growth is attributed to social media, which continues to give both businesses and consumers new platforms to communicate, connect, and tell authentic stories on. This type of communication also altered the way we think about community development. We don’t just have friends at work, school, or in the physical world anymore; we have them on Facebook, LinkedIn or whatever your preferred social channel is. Today, our communities include strangers from around the world whom we’ve never met, but instead have built relationships with online. Instead of proximity, communities form over shared interests thanks to sites like Reddit, Twitch, and Discord. Communities also form around content, as we follow specific creators on Instagram, YouTube, or TikTok. The idea of ‘influencers’ did not exist pre-Web2, nor did digital or content marketing itself. Now, it’s our fundamental bread and butter. The main shift in this next chapter of the internet is squarely focused on decentralization and putting the power back in the hands of content creators. Our current perception calls to mind a handful of large tech brands that own media hosting mechanisms. Meta alone owns multiple major platforms including Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp. Google has long dominated the search engine market as the largest and most popular, and they also own the second largest and most popular: YouTube. So despite the sheer number of content creators we have today, when it comes down to it a handful of key players own the game. In Web3, there is a focus on community-governed activity that isn't controlled by a single individual or a board. This opens new opportunities with unique challenges we get to solve. This so-called decentralization comes as a welcome change as the mistrust of ‘big tech’ seems to be growing more and more. Consumers no longer trust the data collection methods of the tech giants, and as a result, smart Web3 marketing solutions are prioritizing privacy and anonymity. Content creation itself has also begun to prioritize user experience more heavily than before. Just like how JavaScript changed what was possible for content in Web2, new technologies such as artificial intelligence, virtual reality and cryptocurrencies are opening unexplored doors in Web3. The ‘Metaverse’ is essentially the Louisiana Purchase of Web3- an entire area of untapped potential just waiting to be explored and settled. This has opened the doors for ownership of digital assets and thus created a variety of new markets. Brands in retail, real estate, and beyond are starting to use the Metaverse and Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) to stake their claim in emerging Web 3.0 worlds in efforts to create innovative new experiences for their customers. Some are doing it well, while with others, it seems forced. Essentially, we believe Web3 has triggered modern brands to rethink how content is created, consumed, and ultimately engaged with. This is a good thing. What This Means for Marketing The transition from Web1 to Web2 felt like a continuation down the already established path, whereas this next phase feels distinctly different. While some Web2 marketing best practices have crossover applications to Web3 projects, it’s safe to say no real framework has been established. Web3 and cryptocurrency marketers are generally pioneers in a space which requires investment in overlooked or neglected digital strategies and channels. Web3 brands that rose to success quickly have realized how important community focused marketing is for growth and adoption. Moreover, there are tendencies for digital media channels to limit or reject the inclusion of web3 projects, which further causes web3 brands to empower their community members to be their champions. One such company that has crossed the “Marketing Chasm” (so to speak) is Splinterlands, the #1 NFT trading card game operating on the Hive blockchain. Their Director of Growth, Liam Labistour, has seen and battled through skepticism as a whole around the web3 vertical. When asked about how he sees Web3 adoption amongst everyday internet users, we both agreed that the more legitimate projects that enter the space, the more we’ll see even more stability and infrastructure. As we dug deeper with Liam, one thing became obvious- the nature of blockchain is decentralization and community driven. For clarity on this point, the more high quality Web3 projects, the better. The value of building together while empowering the community that loves your brand is counter intuitive to hyper competitive environments typically associated with technology sectors. To this point, adapting to a community marketing mindset may not be as complicated as it seems. It all goes back to the idea of community members being the value. This is done through allowing them to have a stake or ownership in the brand. Liam explains, “As a community, being able to share anecdotes and communicate gameplay is more valuable than almost anything else when it comes to educating and acquiring new users. Web3 is going to grow over the next decade through the means of giving back to community members who invest their time and interest in the actual web3 brand(s). It’s almost a pseudo marketing tool that acts as a way to say ‘thank you’ to the faithful community members for their involvement in helping you grow and evolve.” To put it simply, this next phase of marketing will be less about selling or pushing your brand to the customer and more about allowing them to play an active role in determining what products, services, and experiences should look and feel like. Tapping into that will be a critical challenge but a game-changing opportunity for brands moving forward. We asked Jeremy Barnett, CEO of Rad Intelligence (RAD AI) about the connection between community, “marketing authenticity” and adoption. Barnett says, “The world today has changed. Communities demand authenticity at every step of the adoption process.And once communities are confident that your product and mission is authentic, they will go to the ends of the earth to support the mission- assuming they also believe in the project. Barnett continues, “The adoption cycle is simple and elegant simultaneously. Communities adopt because they trust the and believe in the project. This trust comes from project authenticity and giving your community a seat at the table.” Barnett concludes, “The blockchain company’s we see thriving are leaning into this concept.” The Case of Splinterlands Let’s talk about Splinterlands, the #1 play-to-earn blockchain game. A game that its players love to play, because they actually love the game. Gaming has long been a collaborative community, with individuals coming together around the world to play and interact. In this ecosystem, we also have sub-communities of enthusiasts who create custom content and third party tools who continuously stream their gameplay for others to enjoy. These creators do it for the love of the game and the benefit of the community, and the brand benefits as a result. In Web3, these types of activities are rewarded and are an essential part of marketers’ strategy for engagement. Liam explains how Splinterlands deployed this strategy and empowered their team's marketing efforts to further set themselves apart from other blockchain-based games. We find this roadmap repeatable only if the project is truly committed to create a game that players want to play and engage with. Yes, this means the crypto economy and speculative NFT trading takes a back seat to A+ game play. Novel concept. Liam further explains, “The opportunity for users to be hands-on with the governance of the game is groundbreaking. I have played other games at a professional level, however, I have never had the opportunity to voice my opinion on how the game could potentially grow or evolve. With concepts such as a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO), players can stake tokens to govern DAO funds and eventually updates and more. As time goes on, games like Splinterlands will become further decentralized. Another groundbreaking aspect is how players get rewarded for their play time. I’ve sunk thousands of hours, which equates to years of my life, into numerous games and when I’m done playing them, I don’t have much to show for it. With blockchain gaming, users get rewarded for playing and engaging with the game, adding an actual value to the time played and providing a deeper sense of ownership to the player.” On this logic, a fair marketing question is how does Splinterlands measure player contributions and attribute value to them? We asked Liam this question and the response was fascinating. “Splinterlands’ metrics aren’t dissimilar to those marketers might examine today, '' says Liam. “Their core KPIs surround new player acquisition numbers and engagement figures such as number of games played per day, sessions per month, and duration. This information helps inform successful new feature roll outs, retention, and so on.” Liam continues, “What we strive to do is to use data to make informed decisions. For example, if we want to measure user retention, we’d rather look at the inputs of what is being done opposed to the outputs of what the result is when looking to improve growth. We could look to build cohorts of users based around the actions that they have taken at certain points in their journey with Splinterlands and correlate those events to higher retention rates, thereby informing what inputs we need to market heavily, while which others we should stay away from. You can even put time intervals into the conversation and it all becomes quite eye opening.” Splinterlands didn't have a rulebook to follow for marketing in Web3. It’s no surprise though as we previously mentioned, most pioneers in this space find success by trying new concepts which sometimes mean building on top of Web2. As more brands begin exploring the space, they’ll also be looking for a reliable marketing structure and framework. “It’s hard to say with certainty what a Web3 infrastructure will look like 5 years in the future because no one truly knows all there is to know in the blockchain space,” Liam shares. “My gut tells me the concept of decentralization will become table stakes for any big brand in the future. I think that there will be a heavy emphasis to start incorporating more blockchain concepts into the brands ethos as a means of higher customer retention and engagement. This is all going to be done through giving the community more ways to contribute and engage in the brand’s ecosystem.” The Splinterlands team has done an excellent job of navigating uncharted territory. They’ve recently engaged Rad Intelligence (RAD AI) to help build their framework and infrastructure for future marketing success. Building communities takes time, trust, and engagement that you simply can’t fake. Liam continues, “The biggest core functionality of RAD AI in relation to Splinterlands will be in identifying new potential user demographics, interests, communication formats, and preferences. There are so many question marks in the Web3 space, and actionable user data is still being discovered. By obtaining real user data, driven by community based actions, we can now build better infrastructure for our entire marketing flywheel. This in turn helps us make better informed marketing decisions across our marketing efforts.” A lot is still unknown about what the future of marketing will look like, but there will always be innovators leading the way and carving a new path - Stay tuned!

The Coolest Cyberpunk-Inspired P2E Games to Look Out For in 2022
While the Cyberpunk gaming genre has been around for a while now, it has been given a new lease of life thanks to play-to-earn (P2E). Cyberpunk is best described as a sort of science fiction set in a dystopian future. Blade Runner, The Matrix and Tron are good examples of cyberpunk films and they have spawned a genre of video games that have proved immensely popular over the years. Deus Ex, System Shock and more recently Ruiner are considered classic Cyberpunk games. As Cyberpunk has evolved over the decades it has spawned a new genre of what you could call cyberpunk-inspired games making it an even bigger genre. Given its massive and loyal fanbase, developers were confident they could introduce the P2E element for players to take on this new challenge and get rewarded in real life. This monetization, in the form of cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens (NFTs), is one of the most exciting trends the gaming scene has seen in a while. And with the introduction of P2E into Cyberpunk games, the concept could really take off. As play-to-earn games have cryptocurrency and NFTs as an integral part of the gameplay, they add a new level of excitement and competition as the stakes are higher. With those “earnings” you can buy items within the game such as characters, weapons and land. You can even trade and sell your assets to other players. Many of the coolest games coming out this year combine both of these popular trends – cyberpunk-inspired games and play-to-earn features. One such game is Reign of Terror, a unique cyberpunk P2E blockchain game on Solana developed by Red Door Digital that weaves DeFi staking mechanics and NFTs into every facet of the game including Agents who run missions in a squad, Crafting (blueprints and manufacturing), Lands and more. Players can also wage war in high stakes gameplay: NFTs can be stolen, ransomed or burned. They can participate in escalating strategic battles – risking everything in the Terror Zone for awesome rewards – and form guilds and alliances with access to end game content by staking $ROT. Another such game is Project Hive, a third-person shooter game in which you play a survivor stranded in the destroyed mining facility Hive on the planet Proxima. This game has nine playable levels in which you gradually discover the impact of the destruction a solar storm caused to the facility. The in-game items are all NFTs which allow the players to trade, buy and sell items without limits. Players receive HGT and SOL tokens for many activities, incuding territory wars, PvP duels and PVE chapters and creating or joining clans. Also on the list of cool new Cyperpunk P2E releases is Neon District, a role-playing game where your main tasks are to collect characters and special in-game items in a dystopian world. It uses Matic and Ethereum blockchain technology, giving you a safe way to store and trade whatever NFTs you earn. As Web 3, labelled the next phase of the internet, evolves this should make such P2E games even more attractive as they will allow greater cross-chain NFT interoperability. A new-generation, blockchain-integrated internet, where cryptocurrencies and NFTs are built into the platforms, could see Cyberpunk-inspired games really take off, and dawn a new era for this much-loved genre.

Ankr Booms by 2,000% To Become the Fastest Growing Infrastructure Company in the Web3 Space
One of the most significant accomplishments of the crypto space is the Decentralized Finance (DeFi) industry. With the help of smart contracts, developers have created a whole new world which brought web3 and Metaverse to the mainstream audience. But while we see the face of DeFi, one forgets that there is always someone operating the entire thing behind the scenes. One of them is Ankr. Ankr brings DeFi to the world Decentralized Applications (Dapps), NFTs, virtual worlds, and so much more that arrived in the web3 ecosystem had huge help from Ankr. As a Web3 infrastructure company, Ankr provided developers with multi-chain tools and access to blockchain nodes to build new projects on Web3 and contribute to the highly anticipated Metaverse. By removing the complexity and costs of building infrastructure while also improving applications through “necessary” developer tools, Ankr has made it easy for developers at a time when DeFi is still young. Today more than 50 blockchains trust Ankr as their infrastructure partner, servicing over 2 Trillion API relay requests a year. In fact, at the moment, it’s processing over 8 billion relay requests a day. Being a leader in the RPC services space (RPC node infrastructure), Ankr is running 15 RPC clients right now. The overall steps it took throughout 2021 enabled Ankr to grow by over 2,000%, and building on that growth, Ankr aims to move its industry-leading infrastructure services to be a fully decentralized protocol by the third quarter of 2022. What makes Ankr stand apart from its competition is the fact that none of its smart contracts have ever been hacked, giving it the edge needed to be a leader in this space. Having launched 25,000+ nodes on 50+ blockchains, Ankr currently processes over $1 billion in crypto transactions every month, serving more than 10 million unique users in a while. The company was also responsible for re-writing the Binance Smart Chain for their BNB Chain 2.0 Upgrade, including the Errigan upgrade, Archive Node upgrade, and BAS (sidechain scalability). However, going forward, Ankr will also be focusing on the introduction and rollout of its decentralized staking protocol - Stkr. The protocol also has essential use of the native token Ankr, which is currently used as a payment method on the platform. Ankr in the DeFi space Trading at $0.03, Ankr recently fell victim to the crypto crash, which wiped out over $530 billion in the span of a week. Stemming from the DeFi space, the crash of LUNA and UST played a huge role in triggering the broader market crash. Within a week, the total value locked in DeFi chains fell from $205.17 billion to just around $132 billion. Terra, which was once the biggest DeFi chain in the world behind Ethereum, sank to the sixth place as its TVL depleted from $30 billion to $414 million as investors pulled out their investment from the chain as soon as LUNA fell by 99% on the charts. Thus, it may take a lot more than just faith for Terra to rebuild itself, and Ankr could play a huge role in bringing more ingenious DeFi solutions to the blockchain.
