Playgrid's NFT Weekly Update
Solana To Open Crypto Store In New York
Ambitious blockchain project Solana is about to open a physical store in New York’s Hudson Yards neighbourhood, in a move aimed at teaching more people about Web3. Images and videos of the glitzy shopfront have begun appearing on social media, with a Twitter account called ‘Solana Spaces’ revealing it will be open for business “very soon”. Solana Spaces says the store will be like a “cultural centre” or “embassy” for Solana, which is currently the ninth most valuable cryptocurrency in the world by market cap.
MetaMask Add Feature To Stop Wallet Drainer NFT Scams
MetaMask has updated its browser extension and wallet, making it harder for scams to occur. The new feature asks you to grant permissions to your wallet instead of automatically doing so with a ‘set approval for all’ warning. However, it is essential to note that although it will add to the overall security of your NFTs, you should always keep up to date with the most recent security protocols.
Bowled.io Acquires Gaming Studio NFT Premier League (NPL)
Bowled.io, a Singapore-based social gaming platform, has acquired NPL, a Bengaluru-based Web3 gaming studio, which went live with its first title just a few weeks back on Google Playstore. This strategic move is the first acquisition for Bowled.io. As a result, Bowled will be able to meet its vision of becoming the Netflix of blockchain gaming and offer users multiple game formats with the same economy and rewards distribution system. With this acquisition, Bowled.io also plans to host ‘originals,’ which are the games built, owned, and operated (BO&O) in-house, and also work with a network of partner studios to bring more game formats to the platform.
Biswap’s Squid NFT Game Integrates Chainlink VRF To Automate Winners In 350 000 Jackpot Giveaway
One of the most anticipating giveaways is finally here. The Squid NFT World Game ‘Jackpot’ – the giveaway packs a 350,000 BSW prize pool. As Biswap wanted to ensure that winners are being selected fairly and transparently, the DEX announced the integration of Chainlink Verifiable Random Function on the Binance Smart chain mainnet. One of the game’s regulations stated that the game’s organizer would contribute money to a displayed piggy bank for each player that died during the game. Biswap wants to reward its users for their unmatched support and involvement in the system. The total prize of 350 000 BSW will be shared among 1000 players of Squid NFT World as a reward.
Playgrid's Game of the Week
MetalCore
Description
MetalCore takes place on the mineral-rich alien planet ‘Kerberos’ ravaged by a war fought amongst three powerful factions. Play includes cooperative PvE as well as online PvP 50v50 mega-battles. In between battles you can roam freely as a lone wolf or cooperatively with others in an expanding sandbox map.
It is primarily a multiplayer game designed for combat in Battle Zones. However, for those who like single-player gameplay, you can fight AI or other players, or take on challenges and missions to gain points throughout their sessions in the open-world PvE sandbox.
In the year 2273, The Solar Empire was tearing itself apart. The outer rim planets declared their independence from the central system government, and a civil war broke out. A brilliant scientist’s dreams of creating a better life for society and her experiments with nanotech and supermaterials resulted in a new cold fusion-powered nano-assembly device, called a Fabricator, that could make almost anything from raw materials.

3 Facts About NFTs You Probably Don't Know
Anyone Can Create a Fractional NFT
Using Fractional art, anyone can turn their NFT into a collectively-owned collectible. This lowers the cost of ownership and makes NFTs more accessible to a broad range of collectors. It also solves the liquidity problem of NFTs, with some owners choosing to sell just 10-20% of their tokens.
A Quarter of Millennials Collect NFTs
While it may seem the younger generations are the ones who adopt new technology the quickest, it’s actually millennials who are driving the NFT space forward. According to a survey by Morning Consult, millennials (born between 1981-1996) are the most likely to engage in NFT collecting with 42% saying they already do.
A Plot Of Decentraland LAND Is Worth $3.5 million
The price of virtual land is going ever-upwards and at the end of November 2021, the Fashion Street Estate sold for 618k MANA, which was the equivalent of $3.5 million for a brief period. The real-world value of the plots fluctuates with the dollar price of MANA. The estate is the virtual home to brands such as Gucci, Ralph Lauren, and Prada.
