NNT Catch Up
Neo News Today launched the Smart Economy Podcast, a new production designed to deliver insights from subject matter experts from all facets of the blockchain space. The Smart Economy Podcast will feature both individual and multi-episode series that explore key topics across the industry. Each series will likely feature multiple interviews, so the cadence at which episodes release might increase compared to the previous bi-monthly NNT podcast schedule.
The inaugural Smart Economy Podcast series focuses on DAOs. Episode one features Jon ShapeShift, the pseudonymous co-founder and former COO of the ShapeShift exchange. He discusses the history of Shapeshift, the team’s decision to shut down as a corporate entity and migrate entirely to a DAO model, and much more.
DogeRift, a forthcoming play-to-earn game on Neo N3, will incorporate non-fungible, governance, and utility tokens into its 2D and 3D gaming universe. The DogeRift game will offer two types of gameplay, player-versus-environment and player-versus-player, each with its own play-to-earn mechanics. Users must first purchase a Doge character from the DogeRift marketplace in order to play. The project has already released DOGER and DOGEF NEP-17 tokens, and plans to release an NFT series.
Forthewin Network released FTW Swap on the N3 TestNet. Accessible through the FTW website, Swap is an AMM service that allows users to provide liquidity, perform token swaps, and create their own pools of NEP-17 token pairs. The team is also exploring crowdfunding, governance, and raffle games that would provide new utility for all tokens minted on the N3 network. The team is developing these milestones as its entry in the Polaris Launchpad.

The Flund is a single-staking feature that receives portions of daily minting rewards and fees accrued on the DeFi platform.

April 29, Lyrebird launched its algorithmic stablecoin protocol on Neo N3. Lyrebird’s dollar-pegged token, USDL, and the stabilization utility token, LRB, will be released through Flamingo’s reverse liquidity pools and through upcoming “airdroplet” events. The first round of LRB airdrops went to Lyrebird ecosystem participants for being early members in the Discord server or for testing the protocol on Neo N3 TestNet. There are approximately 60 addresses on Neo TestNet that own LRB or USDL, and each address will receive an airdrop of 5,000 LRB tokens. Roughly 260 Discord server members qualified for the airdrop and received 1,000 LRB each.
