pSFM Migration Campaign

As part of their evolution, SafeMoon announced their partnership with pNetwork has come to "its natural end" thanking pNetwork for "being an outstanding partner".

Plans are in place to end the pSafeMoon bridge on December 19th at 11AM EST. A dApp will then open to allow for pToken holders to migrate and consolidate their pSFM to SFMV2.


⚠️If you want migrate your pSFM before December 19th, this link will take you to the article created to help you through that process.

"SafeMoon's Partnership with pTokens will be coming to its natural end. Thank you to @pNetworkDeFi for the collaboration and being an amazing partner!"

SafeMoon CEO John Karony added to the announcement

pSFM Migration is an important step in our evolution. Would like to thank the team for working on this diligently while also working on the other deliveries.

pNetwork replied to SafeMoon's announcement.

"It has been a great partnership and a pleasure to work with you All the best for the future of Safemoon!"

Burn or Staking Poll

SafeMoon CEO John Karony presented a new idea and asked for the community's input, yesterday.

"Rather than doing a burn, what if we did a staking pool instead? IE, for SAFEMOONCARD and SAFEMOONSWAP volume, we replace the burn with staking? Just a thought. Not an indication of anything. Just gauging interest"

After seeing the responses within the community on the idea, John tweeted a poll this morning.

"Should we do a staking pool or Burn for future product volume (IE SAFEMOONCARD, SAFEMOONSWAP, SAFEMOONEXCHANGE etc)? What do you think?"




He then shared the Tweet in Discord encouraging everyone to vote.

"Will do the poll again after we release the next SafeMoon SWaP innovation. Please go and do the poll on twitter. 🙂"

SafeMoon moderator Excellent Sam shared some thoughts on the idea.


"I think staking rewards from products is a cool concept and it's always what I wanted to see. I've always wanted to see a more consistent verifiable way of earning staking rewards. But! I believe staking would cause a temporary price bump up, but if we imagine the volume just going into people's wallets via staking it wouldn't take long before people start trying to claim their profits. With a burn we are obviously reducing the circulating supply which I believe most people are looking forward to. With a reduced burn the value goes up but it's harder to push back down as long as the MC stays where it was at. Contributing to both could be good, we want a positive feedback loop and I personally believe we need the burn to be part of that equation"

To which John replied with a hypothetical.


What if you could spend from your staking pool? (not saying we are doing this, just a thought).

Games on the Blockchain

by Metaverse Josh

What are the top reasons to build your videogames or metaverse on a blockchain? Well, let's take drive into that... 🧵


There are several potential benefits to building a game or metaverse on a blockchain. One of the main advantages it that it can provide players with true ownership of in-world assets via non-fungible token or #NFT. In traditional games assets are typically owned by developer which means that players don't have true ownership of these assets & can't take them with them if they switch to a different game.


On a blockchain, players can own their assets in a way that is verifiable & secure. This creates a more engaging & rewarding experience for players which means that players don't have true ownership of these assets & can't take them with them if they switch to a different game. On a blockchain, players can own their assets in a way that is verifiable &

secure. This creates a more engaging & rewarding experience for players.


Another benefit is that blockchain technology can enable the creation of new types of game mechanics and business models.


Example: Decentralization of in-game marketplaces where players can buy, sell, & trade in-game assets without the need for a central authority.


This can create new opportunities for players to generate value and wealth from their in-game assets and for game developers to monetize their games in new ways.


Additionally, building a game on a blockchain can provide greater transparency & fairness in the game. Because all TX's on a blockchain are recorded & can be publicly verified, it can be difficult for hackers or devs to manipulate the game in ways that are unfair & creates trust.


Overall, the potential benefits of building your game with blockchain technology include true asset ownership, the ability to create new game mechanics and #business models, greater transparency and fairness and so much more.


The future of #gaming is #Blockchain!

UK Finalizes Plan for Crypto Regulation

The regulation of the cryptocurrency industry has always been a focal point of discourse surrounding the financial sector. Whether or not platforms and companies are being regulated, and how that interacts with crypto ideals have always been an intriguing dialogue.


That shifted slightly with the collapse of FTX, and the customer funds that were threatened by its downfall. Now, with many seeking ways to combat the next FTX, the UK has taken action; finalizing a plan to regulate crypto in the country. [Source: Watcher Guru]


Metaverse Comes in Second Place as Oxford's Word of the Year

“Metaverse” has come in second to “goblin mode” as the Oxford University Press’ 2022 word of the year after the process was opened up to voters for the first time ever.


In a Dec. 4 announcement, Oxford Languages said the viral term “goblin mode” beat out “metaverse” and #IStandWith to become its 2022 word of the year. According to Oxford’s research, usage of the term metaverse “increased almost fourfold from the previous year in the Oxford Corpus,” driven in part by Facebook’s rebranding to Meta in October 2021.


Metaverse lost to goblin mode, which went viral in February, as it seemingly “captured the prevailing mood of individuals who rejected the idea of returning to ‘normal life’” following COVID-19 lockdowns being lifted in many areas. #IStandWith took third place in the contest, driven by social media hashtags including #IStandWithUkraine following Russia’s invasion of the country in February.


“As we grapple with relatively new concepts like hybrid working in the virtual reality space, metaverse is particularly pertinent to debates about the ethics and feasibility of an entirely online future," said Oxford Languages. "A worthy opponent to ‘goblin mode’, ‘metaverse’ gained voting traction with crypto communities and publications. We see the term continue to grow in use as more voices join the debate about the sustainability and viability of its future." [Source: Cointelegraph]


Why Graphic Novels are Lucrative IP for Web3: From MEFaverse to Metaverse

Marvel’s multi-billion dollar IP enterprise is eating up the film and streaming market — but the metaverse is offering new opportunities and creating a whole new market.


Marvel is valued at nearly $6 billion for films alone, $40 billion for streaming and about $3 billion for consumer products, according to a 2021 Forbes analysis. While the media giant dominates the lion’s share of graphic novel IP in entertainment within film and streaming, the metaverse offers new opportunities for graphic novel IP. The ‘metaverse in entertainment’ market share is expected to increase to $28.92 billion by 2026.


The entertainment market is essentially expanding with the creation of the metaverse, therefore presenting opportunities to replicate the lucrative success that Marvel has enjoyed. But what made Marvel so popular, and why is the multiverse primed for the metaverse?


Since the inception of the metaverse as a concept, some of the earliest explorations have included the creation — and adaptation of — graphic novels for this new virtual environment. From Method Man’s comic book MEFaverse, to the adaptation of Dan LuVisi’s iconic Last Man Standing: Killbook of a Bounty Hunter, to Killtopia catering to Japan’s ‘Otaku’ community of manga and animé fans.
