Development Update December 2022

Bit.Country football fever was high this month as we launched our biggest campaign to date 🚀! The Kaosland Cup event kicked off with a custom-built football stadium, where fans dressed in one of 43 different country wearables to take a selfie while dancing and building in an event-specific sandpit metaverse.

In this football-inspired campaign, we will giveaway 5000 Kaosland Cup NFTs to winners of the Kaosland Cup Selfie Challenge 📸! Fans were keen to get their hands on the limited edition NFTs as we received over 30,000 whitelist registrations. On the 22nd of November, we launched the Selfie Challenge and to date, we have received over 13,000 entries. The chaos is just getting started as the campaign will run throughout December with the climax an up to 500,000 $NEER Kaosland Cup Airdrop🏆.
