- Howdy Space Ape Cadet, is this your first time on a galactic mission? Check the tutorial below and get your ship ready 👇
- In Axie news, the recent hack affected the entirety of the ecosystem, with token prices now seen as speculative until the reimbursement details become public.
- The Origins guide has been released and is available at the link below. It still leaves many questions open on how the gameplay will look like and how the play and earn aspect will be implemented. In our opinion, it will definitely be part of the gameplay, but only in the form of tournament winnings. This speculation has most likely caused Axie prices to rise.
- On the side of BlackPool, Automation v1 has just been implemented and will be rolled out to other verticals in due course.
- The Gotchiverse launched last Thursday, frens! What a ride! At BlackPool, we already onboarded more than 150 players, and the Guild collected so far 4K FUD, 1.9K FOMO, 863 ALPHA and 376 KEK. Watch out for a nice BlackPool Le Golden Aaltar craft soon!
- BlackPool has developed its own Aavegotchi dashboard, where you can monitor the rentals and soon you'll also be able to see where you rank as a player. We’ll be adding more features to help you make the most of your time in the Gotchiverse!
If you’re keen on playing with the Aapegotchi frens and collect your first Alchemicas, jump on the application form!
See you in the Gotchiverse! 👻 🦍
