Thank You for an Amazing Year: DeRace 2021 Recap
2021 definitely has been a wild ride for the DeRace team and community! With the start of the New Year it’s the perfect time to take a step back to remember our major accomplishments in 2021.
One of TOP crypto projects of the year
DeRace has demonstrated an outstanding performance since the very beginning. We were trusted and backed by industry giants such as DAO Maker, Animoca Brands, LD Capital, Mintable, Binance NFT, Polygon, ChainLink and many more!
Our SHO on DAO Maker resulted in x10 oversubscription and IEO on gate.io was oversubscribed almost 45 times. $DERC has an outstanding performance and has reached ATH of 16500% making us one of the most successful projects launched on DAO Maker platform.
We also had one of the best performing NFT launches of the year by having enormous trading volume on both on Open Sea and Binance NFT! Our IGO on Binance NFT has reached the volume of 2,7M in the first 24h surpassing the volume of Mutant Ape Yacht Club.
So far, we are Nr. 1 Top performing NFT creators of all times on Binace NFT.
DeRace was named as one of the best performing IDOs of 2021 by the CoinMarketCap 🍾
Game beta version has been launched
Just a few days ago, the very first step into the NFT horse racing metaverse was made — beta version of the game was released!
Your DNA-enriched horses can now reveal their full potential on the race track, so join the races and prove that your horse is indeed the ultimate champion of the DeRace metaverse. Even if you don’t own a horse, you can still enjoy the races as a spectator and support your favourite horses! We already have over 35 000 of unique users registered on the platform and more than 2000 races have been run so far since the beta launch.
The current beta game is just the very basic version of our vision. Tournaments, jockeys, NFT horse breeding, performance boosting items, prize fund possibilities, community owned hippodromes and many more exciting things are about to come.
We will introduce exciting features one by one with each game update!
DeRace team kept on growing
Our team has grown enormously in the following months: developers, marketing manager, community managers, video content creator, designers and many many more have joined the project.
Also, many big names in the crypto sphere (and not only) have joined us to make DeRace the TOP product in the market.
Michael Owen, the football legend and the owner of Manor House stables has joined the team as our horse racing advisor. Michael is bringing his considerable 20+ years of experience working with many great racehorses to the project and is helping us to provide the absolute best virtual horse racing experience available anywhere on the market.
He has also opened his virtual stables to the DeRace community and immortalised some of his champion horses in the DeRace metaverse. Keep an eye on the race track, you might be racing the legendary British Thoroughbred Brown Panther!
Our NFT gaming advisor Alex Becker joined us in our mission to revolutionize digital gaming through the integration of blockchain technologies, NFTs that ensure true ownership of in-game assets and a community empowering play-to-earn game model.
Another big name in crypto gaming, Manu Terrones Godoy, better known as KManuS88, has also joined the DeRace team as NFT gaming advisor. KManuS88 brings his many years of experience in gaming, esports, and blockchain to help us create the best gaming platform and build a strong community.
Many valuable partnerships established
DeRace is always on the lookout for amazing projects to collaborate with! Throughout 2021 we have established many wonderful partnerships which helped the growth of our project.
To ensure the low transaction costs for our community we have joined hands with Polygon and launched our game on Polygon network.
We also have teamed up with many great names in the crypto gaming world like REVV Racing, Fear, QORPO (formerly IOI), Netvrk, Charged Particles, DinoX and many others, to provide extra utility for our NFTs.
DeRace was chosen by Binance NFT to kick-off the completely new IGO concept throughout a range of successful NFT sale events on Binance NFT marketplace. DeRace’s first-in-history IGO on Binance NFT sold out in 2 seconds and the Olympian NFT horses were immediately re-sold in a secondary market for a whooping 120 000 dollars!
Many more partnerships are planned for 2022, so stay tuned to be the first ones to learn about them.
Looking forward to 2022
New game updates, partnerships, events and many more are already planned for the upcoming year!
Looks like 2022 will be one hell of a ride, and we’re extremely excited to have such an amazing community to ride along with us.
The DeRace team would like to express their sincere gratitude for your continuous support. We look forward to growing together in 2022!
