⁉- UPDATE ON PLAY TO EARN ECOSYSTEM
I just want to give you guys a small update on the things that are happening behind the scenes. A select number of people is now reading the whitepaper for $PLAY, our social community token. So far I’ve been distributing the token left and right, but following the whitepaper things will become a lot more systematic. The main distribution will be through rewarding those who contribute to the Play to Earn and play-to-earn ecosystem. In addition there will be ways to use your $PLAY holdings for your own benefit, while obviously creating opportunities to spend your token.
