Sahil Handa, the platform’s co-founder, recently noted; 

“There is a rapidly increasing number of people using crypto pseudonyms to purchase digital currency, swap NFTs, vote on proposals, and manage treasuries… The problem is that whenever someone tries to communicate with another person in this Network, there is no way of knowing whether or not they are talking to the right person.”

Last week, Uncaged Studios, a Solana-based game developer, raised about $24 million in a Series A funding round.

When talking about Hologram, one of the project’s Co-founders, Tong PoW said;

Pavel Stenho, a partner in Zee Prime capital, recently said; 

“CLUB taps into the massive soccer market with a long-term, socially driven F2P game, where players get a true sense of club ownership… I believe games like CLUB Game and Aurory will lead the trend of GameFi 2.0 by putting players first and optimizing long-term sustainable in-game entertainment.”
