Play-to-earn favorite Metacade continues to draw investor attention after raising more than $10m, as it now enters the penultimate stage of the presale. With confirmed listings on Bitmart and Uniswap due after the presale ends on the 30th of March, there are only 16 days left before the token goes public.
Russell Bennet, CEO of Metacade, said of the recent presale success: “I’m absolutely thrilled that we’ve continued our traction and have hit such a huge milestone. The confidence that our supporters have put in us is something that will drive the team forward as we enter our final stage.”
The accelerated interest in the project has undoubtedly been helped by the recent announcement that the project has hired Principal Product Designer, Tyler Lange.
Russell further elaborated by saying, “We’re delighted to have Tyler on board. This puts us ahead of schedule in terms of the front-end development of our end product. We’re now in a position to start developing the initial app concepts, which I’ll be showcasing in an upcoming AMA.”
With the presale amount raised now passing the $10 million mark, the team has high hopes for the price of MCADE as it launches on exchanges throughout April 2023, following hot on the trail of this year’s GameFi trend that captures international audiences made up of both investors and gaming enthusiasts.
Metacade focuses on community-driven concepts and very much embraces the DAO ethos, with regular polls and AMAs offering investors and enthusiasts the opportunity to guide the direction of the project. The platform will deliver play-to-earn, create-to-earn, and compete-to-earn mechanics to deliver a GameFi product with a broad use case that can grow and develop whilst rewarding its members both financially and in terms of online and mobile app gaming experience.
The Metagrants initiative in particular draws in investors as a source of funding for game developers, who are incentivized to build platform-specific projects. Following the social chats, especially on Telegram, we’ve already seen a number of exciting concepts being sent in from users and addressed in recent AMA events. The most popular proposals will be subject to community votes on what is the best direction for upcoming development.
The stamp of approval from CertiK, the leading blockchain auditors, reassures investors that the project specifications and code are reviewed and the Metacade team has passed KYC. This puts Metacade on the same level of confidence as other CertiK projects including Aave, Polygon and Chiliz. The full audit results are available on the CertiK website.

STORY: U.S. lawmakers will move ahead with a controversial bill to get TikTok banned in the country. House of Representatives Speaker Kevin McCarthy tweeted the news on Sunday, amid national security concerns about the short video app, which is owned by China-based company ByteDance. There are growing calls in the United States to ban TikTok, or to pass bipartisan legislation to give President Joe Biden's administration legal authority to seek a ban. Devices owned by the U.S. government were recently banned from having the app installed. McCarthy said on Twitter, quote: “The House will be moving forward with legislation to protect Americans from the technological tentacles of the Chinese Communist Party.” On Thursday, House Committee lawmakers from both parties grilled TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew for about five hours over concerns involving the app. Asked if the app has spied on Americans at Beijing's request, Chew said “No”. But his answer sounded less firm regarding the company's disclosure in December, that some China-based ByteDance employees had improperly accessed TikTok user data of two journalists and were no longer employed by the company. Chew said, "I don't think that spying is the right way to describe it." He went on to say reports involved an "internal investigation" before being cut off. McCarthy also tweeted on Sunday that: "It's very concerning that the CEO of TikTok can't be honest and admit what we already know to be true — China has access to TikTok user data." The app has 150 million American users. TikTok says it has spent more than $1.5 billion on data security efforts and is contracted with U.S. firm Oracle Corp to store TikTok’s U.S. user data.
In big tech, data is currency, and TikTok is printing money. Once known for viral dance videos, the platform has built itself into a digital advertising juggernaut. The app has more than 150 million monthly users and 5 million businesses it can harvest information from to sell ads, it disclosed March 21. It’s the leading video-sharing app in […]
