Exeedme has been making a lot of noise since the final week of 2020, with no signs of slowing down. After securing Moonrock Capital as a strategic partner on December 17th, Exeedme secured five more strategic partners just four days later.
The following day, the team announced that legendary CS GO (Counter-Strike: Global Offensive) gamer Fox would be the latest roster addition as an Ambassador. The very next day, on December 23rd, the closed private-sale round generated over $25,000,000 in interest. On the 24th, the team released the third installment of the roadmap.
Exeedme is certainly exceeding in every facet imaginable to fortify its talent and execute on brand awareness. In case you were busy over the holidays, let’s briefly recap what Exeedme has been up to since the private-sale round.
Exeedme’s Impressive Token Sale on Polkastarter/Uniswap – 12/30/20
To say that the $XED Token sale on Polkastarter was a massive success would be quite the understatement. Although Polkastarter is a newcomer to the crypto-space, there’s no denying the raw potential of the next-gen speed, scalability, and name recognition Polkastarter can offer. These characteristics result in what looks to be some of the most-anticipated IDOs (Initial Token Offerings).
When combined with the potential of a gamer-centric platform powered by DeFi, NFTs, and the Polkadot network, it’s not surprising to discover that on the very first day the $XED token was listed on Uniswap, over $18,000,000 in trading volume was reached – in less than six hours.
With over 5,000 current token-holders of $XED, the sheer interest and enthusiasm for the tournament gaming platform have made the Exeedme team even more committed to delivering its mission to foster a fair gaming environment for players of all skill levels. This mission allows any gamer to get compensated – without a sponsor, regardless of a gamer’s financial situation and resources.

Exeedme Joins the Blockchain Game Alliance – 1/3/21
Exeedme’s collaboration with the Blockchain Game Alliance (BGA) proves that the team is taking gaming quite seriously. The BGA is a coalition of gaming and blockchain companies committed to advocating and exploring blockchain technology within the gaming industry. With several high-profile in the blockchain/gaming industry, including Enjin (developer of Microsoft’s Azure Heroes, ConsenSys or Web3 Foundation), Polkadot developers, and the likes of mainstream gaming juggernauts like AMD and Ubisoft Exeedme is well-positioned to be on the forefront of this untapped industry.
The Blockchain Game Alliance is an organization committed to promoting blockchain within the game industry by focusing on two critical missions:
- Raising awareness about how blockchain can transform games and improve or disrupt existing business sectors.
- Accelerating adoption by overcoming existing barriers through innovation and catalyzing efforts to create actionable industry standards and best practices.

Exeedme Announces DIA Partnership – 1/6/21
With the recent news of the Exeedme/DIA partnership announced, both projects’ token-holders will be ecstatic to hear that the teams from DIA (Decentralized Information Asset) and Exeedme will work synergistically to collaborate on research, development, and innovation regarding custom gaming oracles. The oracles allow all games to feed trust-worthy data into the Exeedme platform.
The DIA team has plans to explore a dedicated gaming community within Exeedme for $DIA token-holders and stakers.
“We are super excited to partner with DIA. By using their capabilities in terms of sourcing, supplying, and transparently sharing trustworthy data we will be ensuring a reliable betting settlements system and empower DeFi innovations that can empower gamers’ returns. Just like having a level playing field for gamers is crucial to building trust; having a reliable source of data is crucial for decentralized finance and will empower Exeedme to ensure reliable Gaming DeFi features.”
Nuno Fernandes, CEO/Co-Founder at Exeedme

Exeedme’s Beta-Testers’ Competition – 1/7/21
The Exeedme team will select sixteen gamers from the community to join and play against four mystery ESports players in the first Exeedme Tournament.
All gamers that qualify will get to feel the excitement of being one of the first to play on the platform – not to mention; the winners will also win the first-ever minted Exeedme Platform and game mining $XED NFTs! There are five challenges to choose from, and you may participate in all of them if you choose to.
Registering for the beta test can give you the exclusive opportunity to be the first gamers to try the platform, earn XED, and the first-ever minted Exeedme NFTs (that could appreciate a lot in value going forward).
Due to timezone difficulties, Exeedme will permit only gamers in Europe to participate in this beta-test. However, the team will be extending this test to other geographies in the future.
ALL CHEATERS WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY DISQUALIFIED.
Exeedme Announces Matic Partnership – 1/11/21
By exploring Matic’s Layer-2 platform, Exeedme Beta will benefit from the scalability power that gives our Progression Rewards in NFTs a more seamless transactional experience. With the removal of networking clogging and lag we believe this could attract a much wider audience of gamers and NFT enthusiasts — this is real-time NFT gamification.
“We are excited to collaborate with Exeedme to integrate Matic into their impressive blockchain gaming platform. The NFT Ecosystem and Infrastructure on Matic will help awesome NFT Dapps and Platforms like Exeedme scale for the next million users.“
Sandeep Nailwal, COO at Matic

With the current digital assets and digital gaming trajectory, it only seems natural that these two juggernaut industries would eventually clash to create an exciting and revolutionary platform that targets a massive demographic – regardless of sex, age, or ethnicity. The need for a platform that caters to such a large percentage of the masses combined with arguably the two most exciting and promising industries in the coming decades undoubtedly solidifies the market-fit and use-cases.
It’s common knowledge to experienced participants in the crypto-sphere that DeFi is serious business. However, Exeedme is on the verge of proving a valid point; blockchain technology can be more than just lucrative – the DeFi/gamer-focused Exeedme platform is indeed a game-changer.
With Crypto Betting scheduled for Q1 and XED Tournaments slated for Q2 later this year, Exeedme is looking like a trailblazer for the blockchain/gaming industry for years to come.
Exeedme is a blockchain/NFT-powered gaming tournament platform that monetizes gamers’ skills while leveling the playing field for all participants. Built on the Polkadot network, players can challenge friends or play against players of similar skill levels for stakes. By staking $XED tokens, players unlock NFT rewards, which grow in exclusivity and rarity as they develop their ranking positions.

All Eyes on Ethereum
One Ether now costs more than US$3000. Did you ever think you’d see the day?
You gotta hand it to the crypto markets: in some ways they’re comically predictable. A month ago, Ethereum was everyone’s favourite whipping boy, a bloated, expensive under-achiever that couldn’t even double its 2017 all-time high. Lol what a weakling.
And with competitors like Cosmos, Solana, Polygon and Polkadot nipping at its heels, perhaps this was the beginning of the end for the network that gave us smart contracts, ICOs, ERC-20 tokens, DeFi, yield farming, NFTs and, to be honest, the entire idea that blockchain was a multi-functional and era-shaping technological breakthrough that you ignored at your peril.
How things have changed. On Monday Ethereum blasted through the US$3000 mark like it was barely there, throwing on an extra 15% while it was at it. The network is now worth a shade under US$400 billion, putting it on par with Mastercard and Walmart, and officially making Vitalik Buterin, the 27-year-old prodigy who created Ethereum, a bona fide billionaire. So, is this how the Flippening begins?
Network to net worth
Due to the speed with which things move in crypto, we tend to underestimate some of the metrics that actually speak to a technology’s success. The new shiny thing is almost always more exciting than some dusty old contraption built in the positively prehistoric year of 2015. Did they even have electricity back then?
But Ethereum stands out from almost all other blockchains in that it’s already being used, at scale, by millions of people and companies. While that may seem like Business 101 – get more customers, be more successful – when it comes to blockchain usage is a particularly powerful factor because of the way it harnesses network effects to improve the value of the system itself. Use it more and the whole system becomes more valuable, both financially and practically, for the network’s users, miners, stakers, investors and developers. Oh, and Vitalik, of course.
How far we’ve come
Ethereum’s issue has always been its inability to scale. If you can’t handle hundreds or even thousands of transactions a second, then you’re not really fit for purpose as a global computer. The result for Ethereum has been a year of increasing network congestion and brutally high transaction fees. Yet the fact that so much continues to be built and transacted on Ethereum tells you exactly how strong these network effects already are.
There’s also an increasing focus on three major changes to the Ethereum network due to arrive before the end of the year:
- EIP-1559: Lifts one of DeFi’s major innovations in the field of ‘tokenomics’ by implementing a token burn system on every transaction. You use the Ethereum network, you burn some ETH, never to be seen again.
- Optimism: due for a full launch in July, the Optimism sidechain should significantly improve the speed of Ethereum by leveraging largely incomprehensible processes such as ZK-Rollups and Sharding. It’s already being used by the Synthetix protocol, where it has saved users over $10 million dollars in transaction fees.
- Ethereum 2.0: This is the big one, Ethereum’s transition from Proof-of-Work to Proof-of-Stake. It’s been coming for years, but the importance of the change cannot be overstated. Already more than 4 million Ethereum are being staked on the Ethereum 2.0 contract, offering an insight into how much ETH might fall out of circulation once the entire thing goes live (potentially in November).
In short, Ethereum is just getting started. The price might seem gaspingly high right now, but remember that Ethereum isn’t trying to be Walmart or Mastercard. It wants to be the thing that Walmart and Mastercard are built on – and that’s a prospect worth having a stake in.

How Tokenplace can help crypto traders get the best buy and sell prices
Any seasoned crypto trader knows that the price of a digital currency can vary across different exchanges worldwide.
Thus, one of the basic strategies for investing in digital currencies is to scout for the best buy or sell price and that’s where Tokenplace comes in.
Access to different crypto exchanges via one platform
To take full advantage of the price variance across exchanges, some traders often resort to opening accounts on different platforms. But Tokenplace eliminates this need because the platform allows one to access different exchanges worldwide.
This means that a user will only need his Tokenplace account and password to gain access to the entire crypto market. This is a lot simpler compared to having to main multiple accounts and passwords for other exchanges for different trading pairs.
Tokenplace is basically an online trading platform and exchange aggregator. With its automated order-splitting, orders are automatically broken up to ensure that traders get the best price for every coin they want to trade.
Easy to use and features-packed trading terminal
Tokenplace is also very appealing to newer investors because it is very easy to use. For instance, users will only need to access a single window for their deposits, withdrawals, trading, and exchanging.
The platform can be accessed from both desktop and mobile devices. Tokenplace’s onboarding and one-time registration process are also one of the quickest in the industry.
Tokenplace uses advanced algorithms for its multi-exchange order splitting feature. With this high-tech tool, users can get the best buy and sell price every time they trade.
