Leo PowerUp Day (LPUD) * Riftwatchers Presale Launch * Ethereum Merge
A day quite full of events this 15 September...
We have the Leo PowerUp Day (LPUD), the launch of the Riftwatchers presale, and the Ethereum Merge, all happening today.
LPUD is a day-long event, the Riftwatchers presale will kick in later today but will be ongoing for a while and will continue with the general sale afterwards, and Ethereum Merge already happened.
I'll start with LPUD because the other two either passed (Ethereum Merge) or should last longer (Riftwatchers presale).
Leo PowerUp Day (LPUD)
In what became a regular event already, LPUD happens on the 15th of every month.
As announced on the official account, starting from this month, whoever powers up LEO on LPUD gets a @hivebuzz badge too. They are also announcing a bigger Leofinance event later on where these badges (and holding as many of them as possible) will be important.
Too bad past power-ups for LPUD don't count for getting a badge.
So, without dragging it any further, here's my LEO power-up from today:
Staked roughly 259 LEO, which brought my total stake to 8309 LEO.
Even though the threshold has been lowered to 150 LEO minimum powered-up, I still do this by the 200 LEO minimum rule which was in place at the beginning.
With this power-up from today, I've added another serious step toward achieving my 10k LEO staked goal by the year-end. I might even surpass that and increase it.
Riftwatchers Presale Launch Day
The Riftwatchers Presale Launch is hours away at the time of writing these words. I hope people who want to invest in the presale as soon as the doors are opened are ready.
Of course, unless the demand is super-high at the beginning, people should have time to participate in the presale during the following days.
But who knows? 500k packs, as much as the presale includes, may be insufficient if the demand is high enough.
But with all the different options people can choose to invest in - all coming from Splinterlands - I believe the presale should go on at least for a few days. However, this is not something one can anticipate well, so we will see.
UPDATE: Forget what I said in the paragraph above, the presale ended in UNDER 1 MINUTE !
There is also only one difference between presale and general sale for Riftwatchers. And that is receiving or not the initial airdrop, which is the promo card associated with the Riftwatchers mini-set.
I wrote about this yesterday.
Looks like the moment in time when "the merge" happened came and passed. Without issues, apparently, but those can surface later on too. I'm sure you can find better details from people who are interested in the subject.
This may be interesting, as this indecisiveness of the market may have messed up the plans for both the camp that expected a pump and the camp that expected a dump after the merge was finalized.
