What’s Going On In Crypto – May 9-14

Reading Time: 3 minutes

What’s going on in the cryptocurrency world next week? There’s only one way to find out! Actually there’s probably more, but you’re here now, so…

LBank to List FWC (May 9)

LBank will list Qatar 2022 Token (FWC) with an FWC/USDT pair at 21:00 (UTC+8) on May 9, 2022, six months ahead of the event itself. The listing details are as follows:

  • Trading Pair: FWC/USDT
  • Trading Area: Innovation Zone
  • Deposit Enable: 18:00 May 8, 2022 (UTC+8)
  • Trading Open: 21:00 May 9, 2022 (UTC+8)
  • Withdrawal Enable: 18:00 May 10, 2022 (UTC+8)

FWC is a BEP-20 token designed to bring football and cryptocurrencies together, but do bear in mind that this is about as official as the t-shirts that guy at the intersection sells, along with sunglasses, cell phone cases, and the occasional reptile.
The creators say that it can be used to purchase World Cup tickets, reserve hotel rooms, access various associated services, place bets, and enter lotteries, but to be honest this thing looks so damn shady that it probably won’t be here in a week.
Proceed with caution.

Crabada Game Update on Swimmer Network (May 9)

Monday also sees an update to the Crabada game on the Swimmer Network (don’t be mean, you have heard of it). The update will see the implementation of a Looting Point System for its play-to-earn game, which are points that are awarded to a user after the completion of a Mining Expedition (not a real one, stay where you are).
The Looting Point System will be a significant upgrade to the game, with Looting Missions now requiring Looting Points to begin, a system that Carabada hopes will address issues that have been raised repeatedly by their community (both of them).
Crabada is a free-to-play idle game set in a universe populated by Crabada, a battling Hermit-Crab (NFTs). Mining, looting, breeding, combat, exploring, crafting, and more will help players find the affluent old kingdom of Crabada and gain prizes.
Ah, what the hell, give it a go – looks fun and kinda silly.

TradersCoin to Launch V2 of Play-to-earn Game (May 10)

TradersCoin will launch version 2 of its TRDCGame on May 10, featuring larger payouts, more cop arrests, and a lot of tokens burned. TRDCGame is a play-to-earn NFT game that offers a gaming experience modeled after Netflix’s Money Heist series, with players robbing banks and stealing TRDC treasures. Close your eyes and you’re almost watching the series, except of course that you lose the game immediately, so it’s not worth it really.
TRDC is developing its ecosystem to provide traders and gamers with a secure platform to access DeFi, NFT, gaming, and metaverse services. It’s on Binance Smart Chain which means it’s cheap to play, plus you’ve nothing better to do, so why not give it a try?

XT.COM Will List PULI Token (May 12)

Finally this week we have a listing for Puli token (PULI) which will be galloping over to join the other donkeys at XT.COM with the following schedule:

  • Deposit: 03: 00 on May 11, 2022 (UTC)
  • Trading: 03: 00 on May 12, 2022 (UTC)
  • Withdrawal: 03: 00 on May 13, 2022 (UTC)

Puli is another fun play-to-earn ecosystem which promises to combine MMORPG (still sounds like a porn category) with play-to-earn mobile mechanisms, NFTs, staking and more. Puli Runner, the first game, was released on January 31, 2022 since when the team has bought a gaming studio for development of future play-to-earn games (or more likely one of them has converted a corner of his mom’s basement).
Puli Runner players need to buy and stake the token to play, so if you’re in the market for another experimental blockchain game (again, Binance Smart Chain, so we’re talking pennies) head on over to XT.com this week to pick up some PULI tokens.
