Valorant’s first International tournament ended with North America’s Sentinels walking away undefeated as Grand Champions.

Masters Reykjavik was the largest Valorant tournament to date as we approach the title’s 1st anniversary. This was the first time that regions have been able to go toe-to-toe with one another. North America, Europe-Middle East-Africa, Brazil, Korea, Japan, and Latin America all had representatives present for the competition. While Korea, North America, and the EMEA region performed the best, each region showcased why they belong at Masters.

Sentinels prove North American dominance

The Sentinels were slated as one of the best teams, if not the best team in the world, coming into Masters. Not only did they win the entire tournament without losing a series, but they also did so without dropping a single map. Out of every team that faced off against the Sentinels last week, FNATIC was the closest to taking down the goliath but still couldn’t claim a single map. There is something to be said over how effortlessly Sentinels were able to dismantle just about every team. Ever since the addition of Tyson “TenZ” Ngo, Sentinels have been on a hot streak, first claiming dominance in their region to qualify for the international event.

FNATIC gets gritty

Most eyes were on Team Liquid and NUTURN to deliver a striking blow to Sentinels at Masters Reykjavik. This was not the case, and after a fairly one-sided victory over KRU Esports, FNATIC had their chance. Their first encounter with the Sentinels did not go well at all. In the words of James “Mistic” Orfila, “We choked.” This loss was a blessing and a curse for FNATIC, having to grind through the Lower Bracket to make it to the Grand Finals. They defeated X10 Esports, Version1, Team Liquid, and NUTURN. Despite losing to Sentinels in the Grand Finals, FNATIC ran the race and took out just about every team in Masters. The Grand Finals match was heated, going into overtime on the first two maps. Concurrently between the streams, Sentinels vs. FNATIC racked in over 1 million viewers.

Valorant continues to rise

Today marks Valorant’s 1st anniversary, and the title has come leaps and bounds from Project A. Not only has Valorant evolved into a complex FPS title, but the competitive scene is in a perpetual state of growth.

“From the beginning, we believed Valorant had the potential to be one of the largest esports in the world, and the best in its genre. Masters Reykjavik showcased that potential, delivering nail-biting action to millions of fans – stoking regional rivalries while introducing the next generation of superstars. We’ve been eagerly awaiting our first international competition, and the fan reception across the globe to Masters reaffirms our commitment to investing in the future of this esport.” said Sr. Director of Esports Whalen Rozelle.

On top of groundbreaking viewership, Riot has consistently expanded to underrepresented regions. North America and Europe will always occupy a major spotlight in Valorant. But Masters proved that regions like Brazil and South-East Asia have more than earned their place among the best.



El Salvador to airdrop $30 in Bitcoin to every adult citizen





The president of El Salvador  has announced the government will airdrop $30 worth of Bitcon (BTC) to every adult citizen of the country.

The announcement was welcomed by Bitcoiners, with influencers speculating El Salvador’s government wil need to purchase the required BTC it intends to distribute adding more than $100 million in buying pressure on markets.

Quickly googled estimates of the adult population of El Salvador varied, with onchain analyst Willy Woo tweeting that Bitcoin’s global user base will grow by 2.5% thanks to the influx of 4.5 million Salvadorians.

Others placed the Salvadoran adult population as high as 6.5 million (which is actually the total population), with Yahoo Finance anchor Zack Guzman using the figure for some rough back of the envelope calculations suggesting that $195 million worth of Bitcoin will be airdropped across the country.

Exact figures are hard to find but Statista shows that in 2019 the population aged 15 and above was 4.72M.

However, crypto Twitter’s euphoria may be be slightly premature, as local publication Prensa Latina notes El Salvador’s citizens will only receive the free Bitcoin after downloading the government-issued cryptocurrency wallet application.

The news was announced during a June 25 press conference, with President Bukele stating the government’s “wallet app will even work anywhere with a cell connection, and you won’t have to have a cell plan for the app.”

President Bukele also stated that the country’s much-celebrated Bitcoin law recognizing BTC as legal currency nationwide will come into effect on September 7.

El Salvador’s Bitcoin law was passed roughly two weeks ago. While the move has been praised by the global crypto community, the legislation has faced opposition from a minority political party and the World Bank.

Ethereum Testnet Burns 88K ETH in Preparation for EIP-1559

Republished by Plato



Ethereum’s London hard fork launched on the Ropsten testnet on June 24 in preparation for the mainnet rollout in July.

The upgrade will usher in the implementation of the highly anticipated EIP-1559 modification that will adjust the Ethereum transaction fee calculation mechanism.

The next phase in the London hard fork rollout is deployment on the Goerli testnet which is scheduled for June 30. Following that, it will be launched on the Rinkeby testnet on July 7 and then mainnet later in the month.

Watch The Burn

Part of the EIP-1559 mechanism, aside from changing the fee auction structure, is to burn the “base fee” which will make the Ethereum economy deflationary over time.

A website called Watch The Burn has been set up to see this in action. At the time of press, 88,483 ETH had been burned on the testnet. This is equivalent to around $177 million at current prices.


Ethereum software solutions firm ConsenSys estimates that the annual supply change will be minus 1.6 million ETH. At current prices, this equates to the burning of $3.2 billion in ETH which will reduce the annual supply rate by 1.4%.

The deflationary properties of the network will be further compounded when proof-of-stake launches on mainnet for ETH 2.0 in 2022 some time and the asset is no longer mined.

In February, Predictions Global founder Ryan Berckmans detailed how, in his opinion, Ethereum prices could surge to five figures through these deflationary mechanisms. He argued that this effectively gives ETH back to holders and not miners as the asset increases in scarcity through fee burns.

Unfortunately, hopes of major gas savings from the upgrade have been dashed. ConsenSys confirmed that it was not the intent of the EIP, adding:

“As a side effect of a more predictable base fee, EIP-1559 may lead to some reduction in gas prices if we assume that fee predictability means users will overpay for gas less frequently.”

Ethereum Prices Lackluster

Ethereum prices had regained the psychological $2,000 level at the time of press. The asset has gained 4.2% on the day but remains in a downtrend.

CoinGecko has reported a 20% decline in the price of ETH over the past fortnight. The world’s number two crypto asset is currently 54% down from its all-time high of $4,350 on May 12.

So there may be a bit longer to wait before these properties of scarcity and demand are reflected in its price action.

Leonicorn Swap to launch a viral campaign

Republished by Plato



The Leonicorn Swap platform has many features such as NFT, IDO, and Lottery, making it the most advanced AMM platform for customers. It is the best marketplace that offers all users trading opportunities with liquidity for their market projects. 

The best part of the platform is the ease of buying and selling NFT and raising other funds for all personalized projects, including IDO or IFO. It is decentralized with a natural network to provide advanced DeFi tools and products. 

The success of the platform, like any other blockchain startup, depends on its community. The community must be active, engaged in a proper manner, and passionate about all these features provided. The products and services offered by the crypto projects should offer the community an interceptive platform to trade and sell.

Viral campaigns are part of the success of making any platform surge high in the market.  Notably, the Lonicorn community has not disappointed. The community has massively taken up the different challenges with some getting the opportunity to win amazing prizes.

Leonicorn Swap on Twitter explains:

“More than 20+ #Twitter influencers joined together to promote our $20,000 worth of #giveaways campaign. We help the community aside from growing our project. Join our tg: Join our public sale whitelist:”

Viral Campaign with Gamified Contests

Leonicorn Swap is planning to organize a prize giveaway in their forthcoming public sale. The campaign awards attractive prizes with performance in the contests the community participates in. The prize is appealing in several ways. It offers a huge opportunity to provide financial service to projects and fits customers’ demands. 

The latest cash prize  was given nearly 24 hours ago and entailed: 

“$200 giveaway to 1 random user. Follow us and Retweet our Pin. And Join our TG: also Tag three friends in Comment. It will end in 24 hrs. RocketFire #LEONICORNARMY #BinanceSmartChain #BSC”

Other successful contests included quizzes, treasure hunts, and answers to clues that require revisiting existing content. It encourages the familiarity of the users with the projects on the platform. Furthermore, the contests are an excellent way to recruit more participants for a higher winning chance. The referral contests also offer a massive boost to the number of users. 

Community Challenges at the Public Sale 

The public sale starts from June 25 to June 30. With an allocation of a maximum of $3000 and a minimum of $50, it is easy to conduct community challenges for viral campaigns. The already existing and active community needs to have other exciting offers and optimism to increase their interests. 

The challenges go in handy with both games and quizzes, and in the current market era, meme challenges make a considerable impact. The DeFi space is awash with memes and technology that Leonicorn is interested in making their viral campaigns go overboard. 

A meme camping involves an invitation to community members to create different ideas and humorously share them. The highest shared and winning memes get prizes. 

The invite from Leonicorn Swap on Twitter states:

“This weekend, we will launch a viral campaign with the #LEONICORNARMY hashtag. Thanks to all who already joined our public sale whitelist. Let’s make it viral together. #BSC #BinanceSmartChain #LEONICORNARMY.”
