Sorare recently released an update to its training protocol, making it more interesting and strategic for users.
- Only 3 Training teams must be set
- Training teams earn 2x the XP
- Player cards entered into competitions earn XP as normal
- Unused cards get a flat 75 XP as long as at least 1 lineup is registered in the Game Week
Why It Matters
Sorare is revamping its platform to better entice users to play with their unused player cards. This update is intended to make the Game Week more fun and strategic.
Our goal is to turn creating Training lineups into a more interesting strategic decision: who do you enter, and when? In the coming months we’ll be exploring more ways to make Training a fun part of your Game Weeks.Sorare

The Big Picture: Global brands are entering the web3 and NFT spaces at a rapid rate. National Geographic now joins the long list, including Coca-Cola, Norwegian Cruise Line, Budweiser, Adidas, Clinique, Liquid Death, NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, McDonald's, and more.
Capsule House is reforming its parent company Yokai House Inc. into an LLC with equity redistribution for holders as it seeks to combat the macroeconomic environment, according to a recent Twitter thread from the team.
Why It Matters: Traditional NFT projects are now burdened with declining revenue sources. Royalties are running dry. Investment in the web3 space is slowing. Capsule House is changing the way its business operates in an effort to overcome these challenges.
What It Means: The founders are not stepping down. All founders remain onboard. This is simply a refresh of the team's "mindset and pacing."
Instead of pursuing a feature-length anime film, merchandise, mangas, and additional storytelling content, Capsule House is now focused on producing art more sustainably, including the community in its sustainability efforts, and following through on its promises to holders.
In Q1 of 2023, Capsule House will roll out:
- A special 3D pixel world
- the Capsule Codex website
- the remaining Bouquets for each species on Secret Garden
- And, an anime trailer
The Big Picture: Capsule House recognizes it can no longer succeed by following "the traditional NFT project playbook." Rather, it will innovate and scale back its ambitions to create a more realistic and fruitful 2023 for holders.
