End of Month Recap!
Gamerse has started 2022 at blistering pace and we have a jam-packed recap for the month of January including the launch of our $LFG staking program, recruitment of key team members, Gamerse whitepaper 2.0, AMAs, and a number of exciting partnerships to announce.
Let’s get started!
$LFG Single Asset Staking Launch
Our eagerly anticipated single asset staking program launched on 12th January and has been a resounding success with a total value locked of 30.44 million $LFG tokens at the time of this article. We have continued to stick to our core philosophy here at Gamerse: innovation.
Below are some core features of the enhanced single asset staking program:
- An 8 million $LFG reward pool.
- No minimum stake requirement.
- A variable APY.
- A max stake of 500,000 $LFG (anti-whale).
- No lock-up for staking.
- A BURNDAY every Wednesday applicable to $LFG withdrawn before 30 days.
- An NFT airdrop of Gamerse avatars for participants who stake 10k $LFG or more within the first 10 days.
For the NFT airdrop, these avatars will serve as your profile in the Gamerse ecosystem and will feature a built-in burn function. Upon every sale of these NFTs, 5% of its value in $LFG will be burned thereby adding deflationary pressure and increasing the value of the NFT over time. We like to call these “Fire NFTs”.
For the BURNDAY, $LFG withdrawn before 30 days of staking results in a 50% burn of accumulated rewards. These tokens are sent to a custody wallet & burnt every Wednesday, hence why our community celebrates BURNDAY every Wednesday. The total rewards burned to date is 100,526 $LFG.
On 26th January, development updates to the staking portal went live. These updates were requested by the Gamerse community and included:
- A support page was added to the portal which includes a step-by-step tutorial video, FAQs, and a support form.
- Addition of userback support.
- Updates to blockchain logic to improve user experience.
- Switch network added if the user is not on the mainnet BSC.
- Updated UX designs on stats page.
- Email integration on the backend for feedback form.
- Utilization of mailtrap.
- Integration of Trust Wallet option for mobile users.
Finally, prior to the launch of this staking programme we announced that the first 50 wallets to stake their $LFG will receive an NFT airdrop of Gamerse avatars. As a small thank you to our community, this list has now been extended to the first 100 wallets to stake.
This current 90 day pool is still live at https://Staking.Gamerse.com. Head over and make your $LFG work for you!

Key additions to the Gamerse Team!
Gamerse’s mission to build and grow the new home for NFT gaming and the metaverse social economy is an ambitious one, and as such, a primary focus of ours has been assembling a team composed of top talent to deliver on this. January has been a huge month for Gamerse with the recruitment of two new core team members; Umberto Garozzo, CTO and Chelsie Perez, CMO.

Congratulations to the first place winner @Ankur0991, who suggested a buyback and burn campaign. @Ankur0991 will be airdropped an exclusive Gamerse avatar NFT! In second place was an idea by @nikkivn that suggested Gamerse to organize gaming tournaments with partners where LFG holders play against each other for attractive prizes. Congratulations to @nikkivn who will be airdropped $200 worth of $LFG.
We also introduced our community to our second Mascot and engaged them in a mascot naming contest. Congratulations to @Ijasulhaq2 who will be airdropped $100 worth of $LFG tokens.
