Solajump, the First Play-to-Win NFT Game on Solana, Sets Out to Revive Short Gaming

[PRESS RELEASE – Valais, Switzerland, 1st December 2021] Solajump, the world’s first play-to-win short game based on Solana blockchain, is thrilled to bring back the fun of classic short games. Developed by Kokeshi Academy Nerd 148 Studios, it uses NFTs to revolutionize the world of short gaming with its play-to-win model.
Short games are fun, easy to play, and easy to get into. However, game designers who came up with Pong, Tetris, Arkanoid, Pac-Man and other major hits had to make do with the limited power of computers in the past. Computing power is no longer an issue for players, unlocking the doors to a richer and more engaging experience.
Visually appealing and fun to play, Solajump draws on the key principles of Doodle Jump. The player’s objective is to jump higher and higher by bouncing off platforms randomly placed in the 2D space. The further you progress, the rarer the platforms become, and therefore, the higher the risk of a game over.
With Solajump, the player’s purpose is not only to achieve the highest score but also to win. Players can access the game by owning a Solajumper NFT, which allows them to compete in tournaments that offer significant rewards for winners.
The initial minting of 10,000 algorithmically generated Solajumper NFTs will take place starting from December. To participate, players must get one of the 10,000 Solajumper NFTs, each priced at 1 SOL, during December.
Owning the NFT entitles players to many perks and bonuses such as 10 chances to reach first place in the Genesis tournament. At the end, players with the best scores will win five-figure rewards, with the ultimate winner bagging more than $30,000. After the Genesis tournament, players can choose to trade their NFTs on the secondary market or keep it and participate in the monthly tournaments.
“SOLAJUMP is the result of the partnership between 2 studios, NERD148 and KOKESHI ACADEMY the idea is to provide the defi ecosysteme with emerging tools for NFT’s and play to earn. Solajump is the beginning of an era for mini arcade games connected with NFTs”, said Jeff Meguir, CEO of SolaJump.
The monthly tournaments will start from January 2022, where the best players will share a prize pool worth 100 SOL. Kokeshi Academy Studios will launch the “Jump Coin” in February 2022 to allow players to bet in private tournaments and the PVP mode, which will launch in March 2022. That will make it possible for players to win NFTs, Jump Coins, and many other prizes by beating the score of their direct opponent.
According to the developers, 20% of the funds raised during the minting will go into the “Genesis tournament” prize pool. The amount will be added to the current initial prize pool of 2000 SOL. Another 20% of the minting amount will be allocated for all the monthly tournaments held throughout the year. Each year, new tournaments and NFT mintings will be held to keep expanding the prize pool.
Kokeshi Academy Studios is also preparing to launch a Solana-based arcade game incubator in the second half of 2022.
About Solajump
Developed by Kokeshi Academy and NERD 148 Studios, Solajump is a fun and simple play-to-win NFT game on the Solana blockchain. It aims to revive the short gaming trend and enable players to not only achieve the highest score but also to win.

Grammy-Nominated Producer Paul Caslin Founds Doge Dash: a New Play to Earn Game

[PRESS RELEASE – Please Read Disclaimer] Grammy Nominated Producer and Director Paul Caslin is bringing his skills and contacts from the entertainment industry into crypto as the founder of Doge Dash: a new play-to-earn game.
“I was in the crypto space for the last year or so as an investor when it suddenly dawned on me that there was a HUGE hole in the market for a classic 2D side scrolling play-to-earn game where plays could simply collect coins, like in Super Mario, and those coins once collected would then be transferred to the players crypto wallets… I call it ‘crypto gaming made easy.’”
Paul is well renowned in the entertainment industry, having worked with the likes of Rihanna, Sir Paul McCartney, Eminem, and Justin Bieber, to name a few. He hopes to bring some of that “Hollywood” flair to crypto and make it appeal to a mainstream audience.

“The crypto space is so insular and inward facing, I’m trying to break down those walls and make it appealing to the 99% outside of the crypto bubble with simple yet effective marketing strategy and a kick ass game.”
In just 8 weeks since their stealth launch, Doge Dash has amassed over 55,000 holders, more than 5 million plays of the game demo at dogedash.com, and have had countless Youtube and TikTok features, all whilst trending number 1 on CoinMarketCap every week so far since launch.
The future is bright for Doge Dash with their first NFTs drop December 4th and the long-awaited game launch in mid-December— but that’s not all. They partnered with payment solutions provider ChangeNow to add a fiat on-ramp to the Doge Dash website to allow crypto newbies to easily buy DogeDash coins directly with a credit card. In Caslin’s eyes this is a major step to mainstream adoption: “I want to make buying DogeDash as easy as buying groceries at your local store”.
Maybe crypto mass adoption is closer than we think!

Crypto Price Analysis Dec-3: Ethereum, Binance Coin, Cardano, Solana, and Luna

Ethereum (ETH)
Ethereum acted as a locomotive in the last seven days, pulling most of the altcoin market back on the uptrend after the $4,000 support held well. ETH broke above the key resistance at $4,350 and stopped just $80 from reaching the all-time high at $4,868.
Due to the high volatility, the price is very close to last week’s analysis, charting only a small 1% increase. Nevertheless, ETH outperformed Bitcoin and drew a lot of attention.
The key challenge now for ETH is to 1) sustain the price above the critical resistance-turned-support at $4,350 and 2) attempt a break above the all-time high at $4,868. If successful, this can lead the market to a significant uptrend. Either way, the month of December should be very exciting for market participants.
Chart by TradingView
Binance Coin (BNB)
After falling under $600, BNB managed to make a quick recovery above this key level. Despite this, the price did not manage to make a higher high compared to the last weekly review and is at -2.3% in the past seven days.
As long as BNB manages to hold above the support at $600, the price has a good chance to explore higher levels and even attempt a break of the all-time high at $692. The BNB indicators are not particularly bullish right now, with the daily MACD failing to complete a bullish cross yesterday. Should that happen later, then the chances for BNB to go higher will increase significantly.
Until then, BNB can continue to consolidate above $600. All eyes remain on the market leaders, Ethereum and Bitcoin, to set the tone in the coming week.
Chart by TradingView
Cardano (ADA)
Volatility returned to ADA yesterday when the price increased by 10% in less than 4 hours. This is a welcome change after a poor performance in the previous weeks. On November 16th, ADA broke below the critical support at $1.9, and this level turned into an important resistance. Overall, in the past seven days, ADA’s price remained almost the same with a -1% difference.
For the cryptocurrency to reverse the downtrend, it has to break the resistance at $1.7 and $1.9, with the latter being the true test of this renewed volatility and momentum. Failure there might cause the price to remain under $1.9 for some time.
Looking ahead, there are some positive signs for ADA holders. The daily MACD painted a bullish cross, thanks to yesterday’s rally. If bulls can maintain this bullish momentum, ADA can finally return on the uptrend. The volume was significant, which is a sign of strength.
Chart by TradingView
Solana (SOL)
SOL had a great week with a nice 13% increase after it successfully tested the $190 level as support. At the time of this post, the price is sitting just under the key resistance found at $236. It is unlikely this level will hold SOL under it for long because the bullish momentum is building up.
The MACD, on the daily timeframe completed a bullish cross, and this is a key bullish signal that SOL may be entering into a sustained rally. The first confirmation of this will come if the cryptocurrency breaks above the key resistance at $236. Volume has also increased in the past week, showing that bulls have the upper hand. It is important to see if bears will come in force at this resistance level because if they don’t, then bulls will continue on their march higher.
The all-time high for SOL is at $259.90, which is not far from the current price. If bears are unsuccessful to step in at $234, then the all-time high is their last line of defense before SOL re-enters price discovery.
Chart by TradingView
Luna
The strongest performer this week, Luna, increased by 53%. This is a testament to the fundamentals behind this push, with TerraUSD stablecoin reaching $7.8 billion in market cap at the time of this post. On November 1st, the market cap was $2.8 billion. More Luna tokens need to be burned to increase the market supply of TerraUSD. This creates demand for Luna, and it reduces its circulating supply. Taken together, this exercises a significant buy pressure on the token.
With that said, Luna made a new all-time high today and reached $69.66, the highest price on record. This level is likely to act as resistance as on lower timeframes like 4 hours, the RSI shows a bearish divergence. A short pullback would not be surprising as the bulls rest before the next rally. On larger timeframes, Luna’s indicators remain extremely bullish. However, it is always best to be cautious during extremes.
Looking ahead, Luna has great support at $55. Should it enter a correction in the future, these levels should be well defended by bulls.

Market Watch: Cardano Spikes 7%, Bitcoin Struggles at $56K

Following a few unsuccessful attempts to overcome $59,000, bitcoin continues to struggle below $57,000. Most alts are untypically stable on a daily scale, aside from a 7% spike from Cardano and yet another all-time high from Terra.
ADA Jumps 7%: LUNA New ATH
The second-largest cryptocurrency came less than 1% away from registering a fresh all-time high just two days ago. However, it failed to conquer $4,800, and the subsequent rejection drove ETH to just below $4,600, where it’s currently situated as well.
Binance Coin, Ripple, and Polkadot are also slightly in the red. More substantial price losses are evident from Dogecoin (-6%), Avalanche (-8.3%), and Shiba Inu (-4%). Consequently, DOGE is close to breaking below $0.20, AVAX is just beneath $110, and SHIB stands at $0.000042.
In contrast, Cardano surged by 7% in a day and sits well above $1.6 now. Terra, on the other hand, continues with its impressive performance as of later with another 8% increase. Consequently, LUNA tapped a new ATH at just under $70.
Most lower- and mid-cap alts are in the red today. Immutable X lost the most value in a day as a 10% drop has pushed IMX to $7.2. Voyager Token (-9%), KuCoin Token (-9%), Horizen (-9%), Stacks (-8%), Basic Attention Token (-8%), Audius (-8%), and Aave (-7%) follow.

Haru Invest to Host Original Artwork of Keith Haring as NFT

[PRESS RELEASE – Please Read Disclaimer] 1 December 2021, Seoul, South Korea: Haru Invest, a leading digital asset management firm, has announced that it will host an original masterpiece of the contemporary artist Keith Haring as NFT. The sale of the original artwork called “Untitled” is set to commence from 1st December and continue till 10th December 2021.
The “Untitled” NFT features some of the most iconic artwork of Keith Haring including highly appraised signatures, a heart icon, a two-eyed smiling face, and primary colors with a high chromatic value. In Contrast to other NFTs, “Untitled” NFT has an intrinsic value. It corresponds to and is exchangeable with the original physical artwork. The NFT buyer must select whether to keep the digital NFT or swap it for the original physical artwork.
How the NFTs Will Work?
The NFT will be sold in a draw format, with applicants entering a pool upon application. A lucky winner will be selected at random from the pool of potential buyers to have the chance to purchase Keith Haring’s NFT.

Keith Haring – The Artist
Often introduced with the likes of Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring was a contemporary artist who contributed to American pop culture with the belief that “anyone should be able to enjoy art”. The “Untitled” (1980) belongs to the period when Keith Haring emerged as a star artist in American pop art back in the 1980s

Industry Executives Head to Congress to Clarify Crypto

Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Chairwoman of the House Committee on Financial Services, announced that the hearing will take place on Dec. 8.
Titled “Digital Assets and the Future of Finance: Understanding the Challenges and Benefits of Financial Innovation in the United States,” the assembly aims to demystify some of the misconceptions lawmakers have regarding the crypto industry and its underlying technology.
It will be attended by a number of prominent crypto industry leaders, including Circle CEO Jeremy Allaire, who welcomes regulation, Sam Bankman-Fried from FTX, Bitfury boss Brian Brooks, Paxos CEO Chad Cascarilla, Denelle Dixon from the Stellar Development Foundation, and Alesia Haas, CFO at Coinbase.
Coinbase Global CEO, Brian Armstrong, is notably absent as the company was recently embroiled in a regulatory battle over its crypto lending services. There are also no representatives from Tether, the world’s most popular stablecoin, which is also in the crosshairs for policymakers.
Clarifying Crypto
Congress has taken a deeper interest in the crypto asset industry as it now cannot be ignored after surpassing $3 trillion market capitalization last month.

Spider-Man NFTs Drove The Second-Biggest One-Day Ticket Sales in AMC’s History, Says CEO

AMC Theatres – the largest movie theatre chain in the US – recently offered 86,000 non-fungible tokens to early buyers of the latest Spider-Man film. The enthusiasm among fans was quite high as it led to the second-highest one-day ticket sales in AMC’s entire history.

Moreover, AMC asserted that the digital collections are “eco-friendly” because they are built on the WAX blockchain:
“The Spider-Man NFT will be available to be redeemed at a dedicated site operated by WAX, and energy-efficient, ultra-low carbon footprint blockchain and the first certified carbon neutral.”

Adidas Enters The Metaverse With BAYC, Punks Comic, and GMoney

Following a related partnership with Coinbase, Adidas has joined various NFT influencers as part of their adaptation to the metaverse. These include Punks Comic, GMoney, and Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC).
Leaping Into The Metaverse
Adidas originals – an Adidas subdivision dedicated to lifestyle and fashion – tweeted about their new partnership earlier today. Few details exist about what plans their “Metaverse” entry will entail, but they have confirmed partnerships with Punks Comic, GMoney, and BAYC.
GMoney is a top NFT collector, thought leader, and booster. Meanwhile, Punks Comic is an NFT comics series drawn by Chris Wahl – a Marvel and DC Comics artist. It fractionalized ownership of 16 different crypto punks, distributed it to the community, and built a story around them.
Finally, Bored Ape Yacht Club is one of the leading NFT collections available, with apes that have sold for tens of millions of dollars in Ether. This August, NBA star Steph Curry purchased a Bored Ape for $180k. Today, Adidas Originals has made one such ape their new profile pic, much to the excitement of fellow collectors on Twitter.
The popular sports brand released a short video trailer celebrating their three-way partnership. GMoney, a crypto punk, and a bored ape are shown flying from outer space together towards Earth, to the tune of Louis Armstrong’s “What a wonderful world”.

Cardano Price Analysis: ADA Downtrend Reversal Following 10% Daily Surge?

Key Support levels: $1.5
Key Resistance level: $1.9
ADA found good support on the $1.5 level, and today, bulls moved the price closer to the key resistance at $1.9. If they can sustain this momentum, then ADA has a good chance to break above it and start a new rally.
This price action is also a significant sign of strength, particularly when most of the market is in red today.
Chart by TradingView
Technical Indicators
Trading Volume: Today, the volume was good from the bulls, and that pushed prices up in a very short period. It is important that they sustain this momentum over the coming days. Otherwise, this may be a one-off.
RSI: The daily RSI is curving back up and appears ready to run. This is indicative of a potential reversal in the downtrend. Once the RSI makes a higher high, then this can be confirmed.
MACD: The MACD on the daily timeframe appears a day away from doing a bullish cross on the moving averages and histogram. If that happens, it may be the impulse needed by bulls to seriously test the $1.9 resistance level.
Chart by TradingView
Bias
The current ADA bias is neutral. To turn bullish, the MACD has to flip to the positive side, and the price action needs to send ADA above $1.9.
Short-Term Prediction for ADA Price
It appears that the bulls may be plotting an attack of the $1.9 resistance level, but until then, it’s important to remain vigilant and be cautious of some serious incoming volatility.
