Blockasset Weekly Newsletter: 21/11/22

Our Legends anniversary celebrations go into extra time this week with yet another Blockasset promotion.

With the FIFA World Cup kicking off in Qatar over the weekend, our focus has been on celebrating England’s top-scoring male player of all time, and Blockasset Legend, Wayne Rooney.

Throughout this year’s World Cup, Blockasset will gradually release a special edition 1/53 NFT range (Wayne Rooney scored a record 53 goals for the Three Lions), with other competitions and giveaways for exclusive, signed memorabilia from Rooney.

England got their World Cup campaign off to a dream start with a 6–2 win over Iran in Group B, and to celebrate, we will list the first of these special edition Rooney NFTs on Blaze on Tuesday 22 November 2022.

We’ll make an announcement on our Discord when each of the NFTs from this range are released, so make sure you join our Discord here.

There has been a number of World Cup-related activities on our Discord over the last week, including a community sweepstake, World Cup fantasy league and Bracket Prediction Challenge — come and join the conversation!

Aside from the World Cup, we have another huge event to cover featuring two Blockasset athletes this coming Friday.

Less than two weeks since Alex Pereira’s UFC Middleweight title-winning performance over Israel Adesanya, we’re back in New York City as the PFL brings a close to its 2022 calendar.

Blockasset’s Brendan Loughnane takes on Bubba Jenkins for the Featherweight Crown, with our first ever female athlete, Dakota Ditcheva, putting her 6–0 record on the line against Katherine Corogenes in the prelims at the iconic Madison Square Garden.

We’ll be releasing plenty of content in advance of Friday’s event, introducing you to these proud Blockasset athletes, two of the hottest prospects in the world of MMA.

In addition to the PFL content we have scheduled for this week, we’ll be catching up with the UFC’s latest champion, Pereira in the third and final episode of the series — so make sure you’re subscribed to our YouTube Channel.

On the note of Pereira, our media team celebrated a milestone on TikTok this week, having amassed more than a million views of a single clip for the first time — which was published to coincide with our recent UFC 282 behind the scenes series.

When it comes to product news, we’re making great strides on the development of our athlete token platform, despite challenges brought on by the current market conditions.

We hope to be releasing auction functionality on Blaze this week, with Legends set staking following before the end of November.

Finally, to close this week’s newsletter, as a thank you to our community, we have worked with our partners Crossmint to temporarily remove transaction fees on credit card purchases for $BLOCK and NFTs through our own marketplace.

This will also help us with a Black Friday offer coming this week, aimed at attracting new users. Make sure you’re on our channels this Friday… 👀
