EzinCrypto was the first athlete to find three giant shrimps during the third event of the Metalympics. His appetite for victory was strong, and now he’s hungry for more. The third challenge from the Metalympics sports event was the Lendroid Shrimp Run, which had competitors searching all over the sports complex for giant shrimps.
“I’m fist pumping in my room right now, just like Rocky”, EzinCrypto said on the voice chat when Rizzle announced the winners. Like other events that attract large audience at the same time, Cryptovoxels had difficulty facilitating the live event. Many competitors weren’t able to see or find the events, some even doubting there were any.
The second place was conquered by BrookHawk, while Sinkas stepped up his game and won third place. These were the first medals for each of them, while Zonked didn’t reach the stage for the first time. Seems like he needs more practicing.
They named the challenge the Lendroid Shrimp Run because Lendroid is launching a new service called WhaleStreet. This is a defi service using NFTs, and users need to acquire shrimps that will allow them to perform a WhaleSwap.
Next week on Thursday there’s another WIP Meetup followed by a a new challenge. The Metalympics is an ongoing weekly event that lasts until February 2021.
Play to Earn and the Metalympics
Play to Earn is the official media partner for the Metalympics, providing fun, informative and thought-provoking commentary on the events that are about to commence. We will keep an eye on all the sports activities and the things that are happening in the player village. Is there any under-the-counter sales happening of illegal substances? Are those sports shoes in the official shop actually enhancing player performances? Who is dating who? And which competitors are taking this competition way too serious? Play to Earn will find out!
If you want to check out my commentary booth at the Avastars Arena, feel free to drop by! The view isn’t perfect, but I’ve got great chairs and some free coffee. I’ll ask the coffee lady to bring some extra cookies. It will be fun laughing at…. eh… commentating the competitors taking on the obstacle course.
