Whether you’re a HODLer or a short term flipper, the crypto markets in the month of February hasn’t been easy to say the least! While most dread a bear market, we see it as an opportunity to focus internally to strengthen our team, streamline operations and most importantly focus on product development, ensuring Gamerse is ready to ride the next bull run to the moon! 🚀🌕
Social Aggregator Marketplace (SAM) Development
Our mission at Gamerse is to build a single unifying social ecosystem for the NFT gaming industry and the first step towards this is the launch of our Social Aggregator Marketplace (SAM). SAM will allow gamers and potential investors to explore NFTs from a multitude of gaming marketplaces brought together in a single social marketplace. We’re leveraging the most popular blockchains in order to house a plethora of Gamefi and metaverse projects, allowing users to shop and trade cross-chain and cross-platform. The month of February has seen the technical development progress leaps and bounds under the leadership of our newly appointed CTO Umbrerto. We can’t wait to for you Gamers to start using it!
Our team has also made progress on the integration of a number of our current partners into SAM while aggressively reaching out to synergistic gaming and metaverse projects to partner with and onboard. SAM aims to bring the best the industry has to offer in a single social hub, that being said we encourage any Gamefi or metaverse projects reading this to contact us at Partner@Gamerse.Network to join our cross-chain ecosystem. Stay tuned for the official launch date and our detailed breakdown of all the features of SAM in an upcoming Medium post!

Single Asset Staking (SAS) Staking update
February saw us celebrate 1000 stakers to participate in our SAS program! We promised an exclusive Gamerse NFT avatar airdrop to the first 50 people to stake their $LFG. To thank our community for helping us reach 1000 stakers we extended this whitelist to the first 100, stay tuned to our socials for updates!
At the time of writing this blog, we have 42 million total value locked, a significant portion of the current 97.6 million available $LFG supply. Additionally, $LFG withdrawn before 30 days of staking incurred a 50% burn of accumulated rewards, to date a total of 236,073 $LFG have been sent to a custody wallet and burned. Considering the current climate of the market, these two factors have been crucial for stabilising our token.
LP Staking Programme Extension
Following the success of the LFG-BUSD LP Staking pool, we asked the community the question: do you want more? The poll ran for 9 days and the community voted an overwhelming 77% in favour of extending our LP staking. 120 day extension is now LIVE and with APY currently upwards of 95% it’s time to fill your bags!
AMA with RoundTable DAO
Our CEO Khaled Jama joined the good people of RoundTable DAO for an AMA where they dissected the key features of the Gamerse platform, a walk through of our highly anticipated SAM and answered a handful of the 500+ questions submitted by you guys! 5 lucky winners shared a prize of $250 USDT, check out the insightful sitdown below:
