Virtue Poker will commence its initial DEX offering (IDO) on SuperFarm’s new launchpad platform come May 28, 2021. The ConsenSys-backed poker platform is expanding its reach into the NFT space. By partnering with SuperFarm, there will be future joint initiatives to make this expansion successful.
To participate in the initial DEX offering, users can join the SuperStarter whitelist on May 21, 2021. Users will need to use their Twitter and Telegram accounts to get whitelisted for the token sale. As the whitelist closes on May 23, 2021, there are only two days to complete this process. The users eligible for participation will be drawn via a lottery system, with the winners announced on May 25, 2021.
During the upcoming IDO on May 28, 2021, Virtue Poker will sell a small portion of its native VPP tokens on the SuperStarter launchpad platform. SuperFarm community members will receive an exclusive opportunity to hold Virtue Poker tokens, run ‘justice nodes’ and earn revenue from the poker platform.
Elliot Wainmann, founder of SuperFarm, said,
“We’re excited to be helping spread NFT adoption to new types of ecosystems and use cases. Virtue Poker makes for an excellent partner for our recently introduced SuperStarter platform, showcasing its enormous benefits to the SuperFarm community and the high caliber of projects wishing to integrate NFTs in their stack.”
Ryan Gittleson, founder and CEO of Virtue Poker, said,
“As we approach a full mainnet release, partnering with SuperFarm for launching NFTs helps immortalize this historic moment for us. We believe using Ethereum to create a provably fair and easy to access poker platform will be revolutionary for the multibillion dollar online poker industry.”
SuperFarm built SuperStarter to serve as a decentralized protocol for new and upcoming projects to conduct private presales and IDOs in a compliant and secure environment. Although it serves as a launchpad platform, there are post-sale opportunities to explore. For Virtue Poker, the goal is to incorporate NFTs into its platform, which will be possible with the help of SuperFarm.
Virtue Poker was developed within ConsenSys in 2016 and saw multiple successful rounds of investment that included Pantera Capital, Fenbushi Capital, ConsenSys and other major backers. Its most recent private sale held in April 2021 raised $5 million from backers such as DFG Group, Digital Strategies, Flurry Capital and JRR.
SuperFarm is a cross-chain DeFi protocol designed to bring utility to any token by turning it into an NFT farm with no code required. SuperFarm provides a bridge between current crypto ecosystems and the explosive gaming industry. NFTs from SuperFarm and Official Partner Farms will gain utility within real AAA video games. In this ecosystem, NFTs are no longer just pixels on a screen but they also hold power to unlock unique digital experiences.
