Gelato Community Update — June 2022
What a month it has been in crypto!
These last few weeks have been a rather painful experience for many participants in the ecosystem, but here at Gelato everything is business as usual. Even though prices went down, resulting in gas spikes and cascading liquidations, the Gelato Network has been operating with 100% uptime with all transactions across 11 different EVM chains executing reliably.
Turbulence brings on moments of reshuffling in markets, which often separates the true builders from the crowd. Our focus will always be to lead innovations within web3, and push the advancements of technology by building tools and applications that bring value to developers and users across a variety of blockchains.
The Gelato Lockdrop
Following on from our previous Community Update, the $GEL Lockdrop concluded on the 10th of June, with 44.6% of the entire current circulating supply of GEL tokens locked. These GEL tokens will remain locked until the 8th of September 2022. All participants of the Lockdrop will be eligible to claim their respective share of the $SPICE token airdrop by Arrakis Finance upon launch, TBD 2023.

Martian Premier League using Gelato to automate gaming activities
MPL is a new and fun football management game on the Polygon Network which uses Gelato to randomize and automate certain aspects of daily gaming activities.
“The Martian Premier League Bootcamp wouldn’t run without Gelato automation, revealing game results and triggering randomness without a hitch, keeping our challenges going 24/7. A delightful web3 developer integration experience” Adam Fuller at MPL.
