3 min readSep 8


As the weeks go by and challenges come and go, our dedication remains strong! Let’s dive in and take a look at what the DeRace team has accomplished throughout this week 🚀

🛠 Platform improvements

As we strive to meet our Q3 objectives, our team is dedicated to continuously enhancing the DeRace platform.

In our pursuit of improvement, we’ve successfully completed the migration of our image storing API to its latest version. This crucial update ensures seamless storage and visibility for all images utilized throughout our platform, covering everything from NFT horses and equipment to inventory items and more.

We’re thrilled to announce that this upgrade is not only integrated into our code but is also live on the platform, guaranteeing a smoother and more efficient user experience for all our valued players.

🏆 Tournaments

This week the DeRace team revisited one of the most anticipated features by our community — Tournaments. Behind the scenes, our remarkable front-end designer Katerina has finished polishing and enhancing the Tournaments page user interface to ensure a more intuitive and engaging user experience.

But this isn’t just about an aesthetically pleasing view! By perfecting the UI to the max we aim to elevate your gaming experience and ensure clarity at every turn so that players can easily navigate tournaments.

Tournament feature in test-net

In the upcoming weeks, our primary focus will continue to be directed to the tournaments and more specifically — improving the logic flow within the tournaments. Once the improvements are solidified, we’ll move on to the next phase which involves testing.

⚡ System optimization

Among other things, our team has been looking for different ways to optimize the DeRace ecosystem to enhance the player experience.

One of the main things that has been accomplished was the improvements of the filter aspect to ensure an easier tracking of the NFT horses for both breeding and renting. Even if the page is refreshed, the filter will stay the same. It will even allow players to copy the ulr with the set filters to share it with others.

The upgrades are already in the testnet and will be released into the live platform very soon!

✨ Bug Fixes & Enhancements

We appreciate the feedback from our wonderful community. So it’s thrilling to announce that we’ve been diligently incorporating your ideas to elevate the user experience on our platform.

This week, our backend maestro, Kristis, has dedicated his expertise to transform these suggestions and feedback into tangible improvements and bug fixes, which include: Chest opening, staking and WalletConnect v2 Login Flow. These improvements are already live on our platform — go check them out 😉
