๐Ÿ“ˆ Blast's Big Weekend

When the news broke that Blast was delaying its TGE to late June, many were disappointed.

Some threatened to quit farming entirely.

Well, they lied (or else they've been replaced).

What Happened?

Blast had a busy weekend with a series of headlines across projects, tokens and NFTs.

  • Fantasy Top completed Main Tourney 2 and launched its first Common Only and Rare Only tourneys
  • Wolf Game opened its Blast Migration, saw 20,000 Sheep minted and bWOOL soar
  • The $PEW token presale was 17x oversubscribed and received $10M in deposits
  • The Blast Jackpot is up to over 2M Gold (even after a 10% win for $OLE)

Blast TVL is up 10% over the weekend as well to $1.59B, effectively its highest levels other than a brief spike.

Juice and Thruster are leading the way in TVL with $400M+ each, but 7 protocols now have 9-figure TVL on Blast and Wasabi is trying to make it 8 (hit $90M over the weekend).

Now a bit more on the tokens and protocols.

Fantasy Top Week 3 Begins

Fantasy Top had a bumpy weekend.

Main Tournament 2 ended and the team announced the introduction of 4 league to split up players (to make competitions more fair).

And even though most seemed happy with the prizes from Tourney 2, floors dumped after unlock.

It seems after each tourney a percent of players are quitting and exiting.

We will see if they come back with the new leagues and perhaps after the next Blast Gold allotment.

As for this week, the Common 20-Star tourney ends today, the Rare Tourney just started yesterday and the 15-Star Common Tourney kicks off Weds afternoon.

Wolf Game Moves to Blast

Arguably the biggest story in NFTs right now is Wolf Game.

The team has re-sparked major interest in its game after opening a bridge to Blast.

  • They've seen 20,000 Blast Sheep minted in their free mint open to holders of various Blast and ETH NFT communities.
  • The bWOOL token is up 100% to $20M mc

Many are speculating that Pacman will reward this team for making the move, with a big Blast Gold allotment, a Jackpot hit (or maybe both).

With the new Cave Game to begin soon, expect big attention on this eco this week.

$PEW Sees $10M in Deposits

The wildest story from the weekend may be from $PEW.

The team opened a presale on Friday and it was quickly oversubscribed - by 17x.

They received $10M+ before closing it and have since distributed the tokens (with a ~90% refund).

The team also appears to be copying the Pacmoon playbook, by offering 500k $PEW to the best Twitter content.

This has quickly become the token to watch on Blast when it goes live for trading.

Notis on.


Blast traders are hungry for tokens and NFTs.

Most that have launched to date have been vaporware.

Pacman needs tokens and NFTs for his L2 ecosystem to thrive and boom.

It's not hard for one to reach the conclusion that NFTs (like Wolf game) and tokens (like PEW) will be rewarded in this ecosystem.

And if they are, it could be a strong launch pad for growth.

It's going to be a big week on Blast - time to pay attention if you aren't already.
