This was a historic week with our first biannual ICE Halving event. We also added a new prize up for grabs, published a marketing update, and announced a couple of cool partnerships. Let’s dive in.

πŸ’Ž The ICE Halving

The ICE Halving is here.

This week, the ICE Halving went live: a biannual event where rewards from ICE Poker’s Challenge Mode are reduced by 50%β€”establishing $ICE as a scarce digital asset with a finite supply cap.

$ICE’s finite supply cap delivers both a strong new narrative of digital scarcity and ensures long term sustainability.

We expect it to immediately improve the ICE economy by bringing it past a 1:1 burn-to-earn ratio (more $ICE burned than emitted), and it allows us to distribute new sustainable bonus rewards to the community from economic surplus.

To learn more, check out our ICE Halving blog post.

πŸ† New Prize Added

We added a new prize to the marketplace. Now you can win $50 in bet credit to use at SX Bet.

Only 100 are available, better snag one before it’s gone!
