๐ŸŽ Stars Arena To Launch $ARENA

SocialFi was the major craze of Q4 2023 and many believe an important sector for crypto for the years to come.

Well we are about to get our first real test of the market demand for a SocialFi token.

What Happened?

Yesterday, Avax-based Stars Arena announced its $ARENA airdrop.

Here's the TLDR:

  • $ARENA will be an ERC-20 governance token
  • 69 $ARENA per point
  • 37.1M points distributed so far to over 100k users (total of 2.56B $ARENA so far)
  • 10% unlocked at TGE (so 256M), 90% over the coming year*
  • Up to 10M points coming for March Madness
  • Points can be earned via Buying volume, Portfolio value, and Referral activity

*The caveat is that those additional 90% of points/tokens will only go to active users. So those with huge point balance may not convert them all, if they don't come back to the Arena.

Also, a majority vote is required to launch the $ARENA token.

Why It Matters

This is an important ecosystem and airdrop to watch for a few reasons:

  • This will be the first true market test for a SocialFI token (important barometer for Friend Tech's token coming in April)
  • The tokenomics are smart and aimed to encourage ongoing use of the platform (will they work)
  • A massive bonus period is available to hungry users across the next few weeks

The other X factor here is the Avax Foundation.

Avax has rallied behind several of its ecosystem memecoins, publicly buying them and disclosing positions. If they buy into $ARENA and help market make the token, this could perform better than some may expect.

How To Participate

If you believe $ARENA will do well, then it makes sense to farm March Madness as hard as possible (10M points or 690M tokens up for grabs).

That means depositing to the Arena, buying and trading some tickets, actively posting and contributing to the community where possible.

We learned a lesson back in 2023 - it doesn't take a massive bankroll to succeed in SocialFi. Effort and consistency in content delivery can help anyone rise.

There is a potential big opportunity here for those hungry enough to go after it.

๐Ÿ—“ Upcoming NFT Mints and Reveals

Today is a slower day of drops after a fast start to the week.

With OSF's Professional Degen 5 floor at 0.065 ETH, it will clearly mint out in its public phase. The question the becomes - where it goes from there?

Otherwise expect a slower day in the NFT streets if the crypto volatility keeps up.
