Spintop Network Announces Their Next-Gen GameFi Ecosystem With Cutting-Edge Technology

Spintop Network | April 26, 2022

Spintop Network Announces Their
Spintop Network has presented their state-of-the-art GameFi blockchain ecosystem, which offers developers, investors and gamers alike a streamlined game finance experience. Blockchain gaming has developed as an exciting utility within the digital ecosystem. That development, however, has been associated with basic problems in connectivity and interaction amongst stakeholders. Many popular gaming platforms have been unable to provide users with a broadly-encompassing environment on which to publicize, launch and invest in games, no less to discover, play, trade and earn with them. GameFi solves those problems by offering a complete and expansive ecosystem.With the developing global market for digital gaming, the community is watching this sector boom and benefit users financially. With so many opportunities, bringing interest groups together and cataloging those opportunities becomes key. Gamers can use the many features of the hub to both discover and profit. Spintop’s GameFi ecosystem provides gamers with the option of finding games across Gamepedia, trading tokens across Spindex, and sharing NFTs across the NFT Marketplace. It uses the tools of Web3 to offer a unique experience.

Gamers can find their preferred games across the Gamepedia, a community-driven gaming guide that provides greater ease in game selection. Following the selection of a game, the platform provides reviews and user guides that can help gamers play their game perfectly.

Spintop Network operates on the play-to-earn model, allowing gamers to earn across the blockchain. As this market has grown, many gaming platforms have been integrating this innovation in their systems for user utility. Spintop Network’s Guild Maker helps users set up their character with appropriate in-game tools and earn from playing games. The Guild Maker allows sponsors to create guilds, which are then capitalized on by scholars (gamers) who compete on their behalf. The rewards are then distributed among sponsors and scholars.

With considerable earning potential through playing, users can then manage their earnings across Spindex, the DeFi hub for gaming projects. Spindex would potentially offer services in staking, farming and trading coins across the platform to help users get more from their in-game earnings. This would soon see cross-platform operability through the SPIN token.

Spintop Network enhances user operability with its NFT marketplace. Users can buy, sell and rent their NFT assets and use their guild elements for their character. The potential for regulation of the assets across the marketplace would be extremely helpful in securing their value throughout the ecosystem.

The network also believes in supporting new blockchain projects in their growth. To make the growth consistent, Spintop Network has developed a GameFi Launcher and Incubator Program, SpinStarter. It would also offer users the opportunity to invest in developing blockchain projects and, thus, become a part of digital excellence across the network.

Spintop Network’s GameFi ecosystem is a project that is revolutionary for developers, investors and gamers. With a complete set of tools under its belt, Spintop is working on improving the GameFi and blockchain ecosystem. To do that, Spintop is currently working on partnerships and collaborations. It has recently announced its partnership with BetU Ecosystem, it comprises of 3 interrelated platforms: BetU Verse - A licensed metaverse resort and casino, EarnU - Play-to-earn sports & esports prediction game, and BetU - A sports, esports, & crypto betting platform. Spintop has also successfully configured its second IDO, Creo Engine, a GameFi platform. Another partnership worth noting is with Altura NFT, where both parties will be working together to implement smart NFTs and guilds into each other's ecosystems. These advancements show their consistent approach in benefitting the digital community.

About Spintop Network:
Spintop Network is a GameFi ecosystem that provides users with the opportunity to play, earn, trade and discover in the blockchain gaming system. It combines diverse elements to appeal to developers, investors and gamers alike. With a belief in benefitting the digital community through consistent development, Spintop Network is working on integrating a play-to-earn mechanism with a DeFi hub, NFT marketplace and Incubator program.

New Report from Comcast Advertising Finds Optimal Balance for TV and Streaming Advertising, Including Significant Portion Dedicated to Streaming

Comcast Advertising released a new, cross-industry | June 13, 2022

Comcast Advertising released a new, cross-industry report titled “The Comcast Advertising Report 2022: Actionable Insights for the Modern TV Advertiser.” Relying on proprietary data, the report provides a unique view into the current landscape from the perspective of viewers, buyers and then sellers – culminating in a specific and fact-based recommendation for the optimal balance of TV and streaming advertising.Comcast Advertising, the advertising division of Comcast Cable, is comprised of Effectv, its advertising sales division, and FreeWheel, its media and technology arm. Both parts of the business contributed to the extensive findings in the report, providing a broad perspective for readers. “The TV advertising landscape is incredibly complex now, and there are more players in the space than ever, While most reports focus on a single view of this complexity, Comcast Advertising is in a unique position to see it from all angles – how viewers are viewing, buyers are buying, and sellers are selling. With this perspective, we are able to truly see what works and what doesn’t in today’s landscape, and provide fact-based insights and predictions about how advertisers can optimize their spend.” -Marcien Jenckes, Managing Director, Comcast Advertising. Below are some of the key findings included in the report’s inaugural edition: Viewers prefer live content on both TV and streaming. In fact, 89% of traditional TV viewing is spent watching live TV and 54% of digital video viewing is live Viewers are exposed to more digital ads than ever before, as ad views on digital services increased by 45% from 2H20 to 2H21 Audience targeted campaigns have increased by over 50% year-over-year, as advertisers turn to audience targeting to reach viewers, at scale, across viewing platforms Programmatic ad views have grown 80% year over year, as advertisers see programmatic buying as a way to reach specific audiences more efficiently. There was also an increase in programmatic campaigns bought on a guaranteed basis. As sellers move to programmatic models, they are working with an average of 13 different programmatic partners – and up to 30 in total Following its focus on the latest trends for viewers, buyers and sellers, the report delves into an actionable “formula for success” for modern advertisers. Based on a study of more than 20,000 campaigns, Comcast Advertising recommends that advertisers allocate 20-30% of their TV budget towards streaming advertising, and the rest to traditional TV. “For years, advertisers have been asking us how to best balance investments across traditional TV and streaming platforms in order to enhance campaign performance, Advertisers shouldn’t be making a guess or ‘going with their gut’ on this; rather, they should focus on the data. By looking at tens of thousands of campaigns across verticals and across budget amounts, the data is quite clear – TV should still act as the foundation for most advertisers, but reach is highest when 20-30% of the budget is allocated to streaming.” -James Rooke, General Manager, Effectv. The report concludes with a look at predictions for the years ahead. Included among these predictions is what’s next for streaming, the importance of first-party data, the shift to audience-based buying, the scaling of addressable advertising and the growth of programmatic. “This has been an incredible year for TV advertising’s progress and innovation, and this is clearly evident in the discussions we’ve having every day,” said Mark McKee, General Manager, FreeWheel. “From addressable, to programmatic, to first-party data – the opportunities are there for advertisers to do more with their budgets and connect better with sellers. It’s critical for them to look at the industry from all sides to understand where the opportunities lie, and this report can help them do that.” Click here to view the full report.

Metarix | May 21, 2022

Metarix, a project that aims to revolutionize the virtual world and provide an interesting and satisfying experience to a huge number of people announces its diamond partnership with one of the most trusted launchpad platforms Tenset.Metarix, a project that aims to revolutionize the virtual world and provide an interesting and satisfying experience to a huge number of people announces its diamond partnership with one of the most trusted launchpad platforms Tenset.The Metarix is a smart contract platform built on its own Layer 2 Blockchain experienced (but not limited to) in its Metaverse. The project is in its early stages of building, currently building its blockchain, followed by metaverse, DEX, NFT marketplace, SDK service, WEB3.0 platform, P2E game, and the other stage 1 production attractions and experiences. The tech industry and financial world are merging into one and it’s happening on the only platform that is sustainable throughout political affiliation, inflation, gender, race, creed, etc.- the blockchain. Throughout the countries of the world, everyone from everywhere is feeling the shakings of uncertainty and instability. Financially speaking, a lot of people are hedging against inflation and even their own local currency for something that is deflationary and has the potential to increase in value over time solely relying on supply and demand to determine market value. It is estimated that only 4% of the world’s population is using cryptocurrency at this moment. Years ago, game developers toyed with the ideas of an open-world concept game, where there was a freedom to roam and interact as the player saw fit. For the first time, there was a bit of freedom in gameplay that attracted millions to that niche of gaming. From RPGs, MMORPGs, GTA’s, etc., the hunger for freedom in the digital world had manifested to a point of creation. That passion for free gameplay, the desire to create beyond the limits of humanity, and the dream of financial freedom and economic stability had a baby- it is called The Metarix. The Metarix is a metaverse built on the foundation of its own Layer 2 Blockchain called the Metarix Chain. The currency of this token and metaverse is MTRX. Diamond Partnership with Tenset Metarix has managed to land a diamond partnership with tenset which is one of the most trusted launchpad platforms. They are launching a presale in partnership with Tenset and few of their products will be launched soon. Metarix is one of the best projects in recent times for being innovative in building a complete decentralized ecosystem for Gaming, NFT's and Metaverse. The Metarix offers a platform that allows other crypto programs, games, NFTs, and decentralized exchanges (DEXs) to run inside or outside its metaverse. But inside, you’ll see islands, properties for sale, houses, beaches, mountains, businesses, attractions, mini-games, concert halls, arcades, shops, NFT marketplace, banks, and software development kits that will be the game development center to help the average joe design his own iteration of the 90’s arcade game he was addicted to, or the teen creating his own viral NFT. Metarix has truly put the power to design and create wealth as the user chooses. Metarix has an NFT marketplace to support the games, music, and NFTs created with the SDKs, as well as a DEX to support the cryptos created via the new games and the games hosted in the Metarix Metaverse. This ecosystem is governed by the MTRX (Metarix Token), which is in Presale starting May 20th. Expect the token launch to happen after all presale events and IEOs. This is a project to keep an eye on. The road map is very ambitious, and the project has a proven development team that can get it done at a high level. Users can connect to the presale page and invest or watch the development unfold before their eyes. Metarix’s website is metarix.network. All inquiries can be made to support@metarix.network. About Metarix METARIX is a decentralized metaverse built on its own layer 2 solution blockchain. Filled with an ecosystem of P2E gaming, functional NFTs, web3 commerce, business endeavors, virtual real estate, concerts, live venues, content creation services & more.
