Rebel Bots Launches Land Sale (May 16)

Rebel Bots will launch its land sale for the player NFT sets on Monday, with each set consisting of 1 Land NFT and 3 Fighting Bots and available for 0.025 ETH (payable in USD equivalent stablecoin). Rebel Bots – Xoil Wars is a cross-platform card warfare game where players can play, progress, and earn in a single-player or multiplayer sci-fi-themed game set in outer space. Players must band together to form extraterrestrial kingdoms, construct warring robot armies, and compete with other players for the coveted Xoil resource.

The Rebel Bots game has thousands of separate kingdoms, each established by one of the first-generation Rebel Bots. Not all kingdoms are created equal, just as not all Rebel Bots are created alike, with Robots with rare features able to take larger kingdoms with larger areas.

After the launch of its land sale, Rebel Bots will have the following benefits:

  • Create simple FTUE (First Time User Experience) for non-NFT players
  • Launch the game with the help of thousands of Robot owners
  • Create a sustainable Play-to-Earn economy
  • Build the Rebel Bots universe in which players can play their characters in multiple games

BitMart to List MOOV (May 16)

Dotmoovs is a “move2earn app” that rewards users with native tokens for activity within peer-to-peer dancing or sports game challenges.

The Dotmoovs team says that it developed a proprietary artificial intelligence system, advanced computer vision algorithms, an arbitration engine that detects the human body and its various limb positions, and a scoring algorithm to measure the player’s skill. The team then combined the technology with blockchain technology, a native cryptocurrency, and collectibles NFTs.

Move2earn is gearing up to be a strong contender for the ‘hype king’ crown for the next silly season, what with the success of STEPN and others like it.

Trava Finance Governance V1 Launch (May 19)

May 19 also sees Trava Finance hand over ownership of its BSC Lending Pool to holders of the veTRAVA governance token, the next step for the Trava Lending Pool following the April 28 launch of its Auction Mechanism.

Trava.Finance is a decentralized marketplace for cross-chain lending, offering a flexible mechanism for users to create and manage their lending pools to start a lending business. Trava.Finance is deployed on the Binance Smart Chain and allows for lending with BSC tokens first, before enabling cross-chain lending with various tokens on Ethereum and other blockchain networks.

From Thursday, veTRAVA holders will start to earn rewards in TRAVA tokens with a shared APR after they lock their tokens in the Trava Governance vault, with their claimable rewards increasing every Tuesday based on their voting power proportion in the last week. The more significant the amount they lock, the more voting power they will possess, and their rewards will be more attractive. This mechanism aims to encourage users who show significant commitment to the protocol’s future.
