Another Friday — another DeRace weekly development update! Let’s dive into what the team has been working hard on accomplishing throughout this week 🤓

🕺 NFT Jockeys

This week, the DeRace team has made significant strides in the development of our upcoming Jockey feature. Our team has enabled deposit and withdrawal functions on the test-net, and have also created a fully functioning Jockey generator for generic Jockey NFTs.

We are now focusing on integrating the back-end logic for the in-game mechanics, which will be a major milestone in the development of this exciting new feature. We are excited to bring Jockeys to our players and to continue expanding and enhancing the DeRace ecosystem.

🐎 Horse rental feature updates

NFT horses cannot wait to be rented out and hit the tracks!

Our team has been hard at work this week improving the horse rental feature. We have been meticulously testing and fixing minor bugs in the rental mechanics to ensure the feature is user-friendly and seamless.

🛍 In-game marketplace

This week, our developer team has made significant progress on the upcoming in-game marketplace by finalising the underlying back-end logic. They have completed crucial aspects such as the seamless $DERC transactions when buying/selling assets, instantaneous transfers of the NFT from the previous owner to the new one, mechanics of listing an item among others.
