Dev Log 25: New Website, CEX Listing, Single Sided Staking, and Arbour Day!
This week we have reached some major milestones in Realm’s journey, and we are excited to tell you about everything we’ve accomplished!
As usual, we had our weekly Tester Tuesday, Founders AMA on Twitter, and Realm Quiz on Telegram, where we awarded 5 winners $50 USD of $REALM each. There was also an ongoing giveaway/meme contest announced by influencer @TheCTJosh on Twitter with a $2000 prize pool — enter here if you haven’t yet! In addition to that giveaway, there is an ongoing AR Portal Contest for Alpha Testers, which you can enter here for your chance to win some land!
The first big announcement this week was the launch of our new website!
The new site is filled with updated visuals, actual gameplay from our Alpha app, new sections about creating in Realm, and the impact and economy of our platform. We’ve also updated the team page, and you’ll be able to see how much we’ve grown! We love your feedback and suggestions, so please keep them coming. Realm is a collaborative effort, and our community is key to our development. We are always striving to improve and we will be continuing to update the website over time, with a whole new version scheduled to release nearer to our public Beta launch in June.
CEX Listing — Gate.io
The second big announcement is something our community has been looking forward to for some time: our first CEX listing on gate.io! Gate held a Startup Program airdrop leading up to the launch, which ended with $74.5M being staked! A few hours after the airdrop ended, at 12 pm UTC, $REALM went live on Gate, and you can now officially trade a $REALM-$USDT pair.
We are planning to announce another CEX listing in the coming weeks, but until then make sure you check out Gate and read about our launch here.
Staking Pools — Green or Green?
Single Sided Staking
After the listing went live, we introduced a single-sided staking pool powered by UniCrypt Network, which you can read about here. This staking pool allows you to earn rewards in $REALM tokens for staking $REALM. The longer you lock your tokens, the bigger the boost you will get. Ultimately the APY that you will receive will be determined as the percentage of total $REALM that you lock into the pool. For a more detailed discussion, or to have any questions answered, drop into our Telegram or Discord chats!
Staking for Trees, IRL and NFTrees
In honor of Arbour Day, we launched a special staking pool where, in exchange for staking $REALM, we will plant trees IRL on your behalf, and you will receive NFTrees (virtual tree NFTs) that will be plantable in our Metaverse! These trees will produce coffee fruits and seeds, which give you a temporary speed boost. The longer you stake, the more trees we will plant, and the better the NFTree you will receive! Participation is limited, so get in while you can, and get ready to create some impact!
We hope you are excited as we are about all of the new developments at Realm this week.
