Introducing BlackPool — an actively managed, tokenised NFT fund. BlackPool’s ambition is to democratise access to the best in-game assets, highest-yield generators and most valuable NFTs, giving everyone a chance to reap the rewards.

BlackPool is the first protocol to combine long tail investment analysis, AI and self-organising team guilds to generate passive income. The DAO currently focuses on three components: portfolio investments, competitive gaming, and the incubation of creativity.

This weekly newsletter will enable you to keep up to date with the latest data and metrics from our key verticals as well as providing an informative insight into notable events from the NFT space over the past week.

We begin this week by taking a look at how our managers are performing over on the Sorare pitch.

Game week 160 yielded two wins, three runners-up and a host of placings and rewards. An excellent performance which was backed up by four top ten finishes in game week 161 with only five tournaments open.

A conservative 12.5 Ξ of prizes won over the two game weeks and three strong Uniques added to Manager 1’s collection were all very welcome additions but still couldn't top the incredible performance from last week where we were fortunate enough to add the games most prestigious and valuable reward to our ranks. The Super Rare Kylian Mbappé.

In other news, Sorare released 6 new clubs onto the platform and unveiled a series of new achievements linked to cosmetic upgrades for managers galleries. The BlackPool managers also began to represent a powerful Rest of the World team in a new private league to compete against Antoine Greizmann (FC Barcelona) and some of the strongest French managers in the game! Fierce competition but our boys continue to hold their own.

Next up we take a look at our fleet over in the Cometh system. With improved ships and new captains and scholars being added to our ranks, the managers have been creating a real force to be reckoned with over the past few weeks.

This week, our scholars were given Rare and Mythic ships for the first time and were tasked with specific instructions and quotas to fill for each of them which they have all completed successfully.

An excellent accomplishment. Salutes all round.

Some data missing from this week's metrics. Will be rectified next week.

In other news, this week saw the MUST take +78.8% to reach $491.83 on May 1st, giving Cometh a challenging turn: how to keep mining profitably, when the jumping cost has more than doubled? We advised our BlackPool Academy Scholars to play more on the passive income side, by lowering their pulling fees so that they would benefit from people jumping to position their ship for incoming comets.

We also gained good passive revenue from the new gameplay with radioactive comets which has proven to be quite successful (provided you retrieve your rover on time!)

Next week we are set to onboard two more players, as well as a ship switch for the current scholars.
