XT.COM the world's first socially infused trading platform, is thrilled to announce the listing of ROND on its platform in the main zone, and the ROND USDT trading pair will be open for trading from 2023-01-16 10:00 (UTC).
ROND (ROND Coin) is an ERC20 token deployed on the polygon sidechain and the in-game currency for the MMORPG blockchain game "Gensokishi online". A total of 97.5% of the total max supply has been burnt after August 2022 to adjust the max supply of the token. The tokens can be used to purchase in-game items, base weapons, and other equipment players can find in the project's marketplace.
The ROND token has multiple use cases and is very much integrated in the Genso Metaverse economy. On top of using ROND tokens to pay for entry fees for special events or access to UGC maps, users would also need ROND tokens to both purchase and upgrade equipment as well as paying any quest challenge fees. Players interested in earning ROND tokens would need to stake MV tokens, the game's governance token of the game, on the GensoKishi Online Staking Dapp.
About Gensokishi Online Meta World
The "Gensokishi online Meta World " is a 3D MMORPG blockchain game that is based on the game "Elemental Knights". Powered by the Polygon sidechain and backed by Polygon Studios, the game has 3 distinct features: free-to-play, earning via UGC, and minting NFT items upon obtaining them during gameplay. The game seeks to enable players to create various in-game items as NFTs and also edit certain constructs and structures in the game as well as the placement of AI characters and monsters. Players can obtain valuable in-game items like limited fashion items, special items, and original equipment to interact with other players worldwide. Players can also trade and sell their NFTs with others.
The project plans to sell housing areas, estate areas, and larger areas as housing in the metaverse this year in 2023. All of the sold estate will only be possible with the support of more than 130 professionals backing the project.
"We're delighted to have ROND listed on our trading platform.

Led by a team of industry veterans from EA, Capcom, and PlayStation, Tiny Colony is migrating to IMX to improve performance and cement its place as an innovator in web3 gaming
Tiny Colony a web3 construction and management simulation, today announces its launch on ImmutableX — the preferred developer platform for building and scaling web3 games on Ethereum from leading web3 gaming company Immutable.
Initially developed on the Solana blockchain, Tiny Colony is migrating to IMX to leverage the platform's cutting-edge scaling features while retaining Ethereum 's uncompromising security and decentralization. Prior to the move, Tiny Colony was the top-selling collection on digital marketplace Fractal, with over 18,000 assets sold and $3 million US raised.
The Immutable partnership will allow the Tiny Colony team to resume game development and capitalize on specialized technical support and product life cycle consultation.
By adopting ImmutableX technology, Tiny Colony will be able to offer numerous new features and capabilities, including faster and more responsive performance; improved security; enhanced accessibility for new web3 gamers with the inclusion of a built-in crypto wallet; the option to pay for in-game assets with fiat currency, and more.

"The team's goal of building a fun and engaging web3 game that provides a variety of entertainment options and freedom of asset ownership perfectly aligns with Immutable's own mission to power the next generation of games."
Tiny Colony's development team has an extensive background in the Film and TV industry.

As a natural storyteller and visionary, Arshia brought together an experienced team of scriptwriters, artists, developers, and animators from lauded AAA studios such as EA, Capcom, and PlayStation to bring Tiny Colony to life.
As one of the first-ever blockchain-based construction simulations, Tiny Colony allows players to build and manage a complex underground humanoid ant colony, following seven different factions, all intertwined through an engaging story and rich lore.
To succeed, players must leverage strategic farming, mining, building cells, hatching larvae, and defending their colony against raiders if they want to survive and thrive. Other game modes in development include Gladiator Wars and Tiny Survivors, where players can use their earned assets across all game modes. Players will also earn NFTs through multiple game modes, which can be used in-game or traded.
Existing Tiny Colony NFT holders can access an MVP version of the game to test the core mechanics and provide feedback to the development team.
"We are delighted to be partnering with ImmutableX as we establish ourselves in the world of web3 gaming. ImmutableX has a strong reputation for creating top-quality games and supporting web3 gaming projects through their native platform. This partnership allows us to benefit from the specialized technical support, product life cycle consultation, and long-term direction provided by the experienced team at ImmutableX as we continue to develop Tiny Colony." said Arshia Navabi , CEO and Co-founder of Tiny Colony.

LEGENDS AT WAR (L.A.W.) is a state-of-the-art, free-to-play game where players of all levels can enjoy tournament play in a Medieval setting, created by Sabre Games. They've announced the collaboration and participation of one of the world's most recognizable personalities in gaming and entertainment: Hafthor Bjornsson (Thor), the former World's Strongest Man (2018), and "The Mountain", from Game of Thrones.
Thor's character was dubbed "the Mountain'' due to his dominating presence, weightlifting skills, and combat capabilities. Along with entertainment, Thor is passionate about Medieval-style warfare, knows the intricacies and strategy behind physical combat, and is a delight to talk to.
Thanks to the hard work and dedication of the team at Sabre Games, players can now compete against a full-fledged animated "Mountain", played by the legend himself. Thor will also continue to play a crucial role in the progression of L.A.W. and participate in the upcoming "Conquer the Mountain" tournament in February.
By including players in the development process, Sabre Games built a game that gamers want. The game exhibits a generative AI that adjusts the difficulty of the competition based on a player's skill, and will soon be available to 100,000 players in the upcoming tournament, on February 1st .
According to COO and co-founder, Robert Niziol , "We emphasize working backwards from our customers to build a product and game that they want…we believe that our gamers and development team speaking over the past several months lets us understand what they want."
L.A.W. is building the game with their community in mind. They've held two successful beta tournaments, handed out over $15,000 for early beta testers, and hosted daily developer and community spaces on Twitter and Discord – translating into an average gamer satisfaction score of 9.5/10 and a four-star rating on the App Store.
Sabre Games CEO and co-founder, Wojciech Kaszycki , says that "The pinnacle accomplishment of our development team is building a game that caters to the players of today, but will be playable by the players of tomorrow. You don't need to know anything about Web3 to play our game, but you will be able to learn and eventually enter into it if you choose." The Sabre Games team has developed over 160 titles that have been downloaded over 20 million times.
