The Neon District Founders Only Alpha can be accessed at

Neon District is a turn-based role-playing game. In Neon District, you create teams of one to four characters, each equipped with their own armor and a weapon, which make up your party in combat. The major difference between Neon District and traditional turn-based RPGs is the use of decks of cards that each character has when going into battle. Using these decks, your characters have a wide range of abilities, effects, interactions, and attacks that they can use throughout a battle.

Announcing GET PWND: Your friendly neighborhood Ethereum chess set vendor!

Today, I’m announcing a coordinated effort to launch a marketplace and platform for 3D custom chess sets which can be designed by third-party artists and supported in-game by third-party developers: GET PWND

Marguerite deCourcelle here, CEO of Blockade Games, and perpetual Ethereum developer with COIN, a community and developer-focused project on cultivating creative ecosystems.

If you’re a developer, don’t miss the technical details at the bottom of this article!

Why Chess? Why Now?

To start, Battle Chess is one of my all-time favorite video games from growing up.

What happens when you take exclusive artwork from the most elusive NFT creators and band them together under Coin’s E-Den? You get NFT farming. And today, that dream becomes a reality.

Head on over to the Coin Artist farm page to marvel at the newest staking program for E-den syndicate members!

NFT farming starts tomorrow at

NFT Farming Begins!

Last week, we shared details around the launch of NFT farming, allowing COIN, CRED and partner token holders to earn shards of coveted pieces from a secret Coin Vault.

It’s with great pleasure that we’re excited to showcase Glitch Black, Diego Rodriguez and ROBNΞSS as the first featured artists!

Neon District is a free-to-play cyberpunk role-playing game featuring collectible NFTs on Matic and Ethereum. Players collect characters and gear, craft and level up fully-equipped teams, and battle their teams against other players through the Neon Pizza competitive multiplayer missions or in real-time turn-based combat.

The public release of Neon District is nearly upon us. On January 19, 2021 Neon Pizza will be hot out of the oven and ready for the first Neon District Campaign named Neon Pizza Party.

We’re preparing for the public roll out!

We are less than 2 weeks away from the hotly anticipated public release of Neon District with Neon Pizza Mode on Jan 19th. In the meantime, current founder key holders can continue to play practice and private pvp matches. As a special gift to all keyholders, from now until the release of Neon Pizza on Jan 19th, any keyholder who plays at least 5 private pvp matches (regardless of if you win or lose) will earn a gem in the key linked to the wallet in their Neon District account.

Hey E-Den members!

With so many awesome initiatives in the queue, we wanted to take this time to update the E-Den community on all things COIN. These are just some of the many ways to COIN initiative is growing, a journey we invite any and all cypherpunk enthusiasts to get involved with!

We’ve got a lot to cover, so let’s dive right in.

New 1155 NFT Farms Ahead!

We’re excited to showcase a new NFT farming contract fresh out of the Seed Hack social token hackathon, winning the COIN bounty program we participated in with SEED.

The contract allows users to stake ERC20 tokens like…

In the next week, three new farms will be added to the Coin Artist Liquidity Mining (CALM) portal. Individuals who hold $COIN, $CRED, and a rotating partner token can stake to earn artwork in the form of fractionalized NFT rewards called shards.

Visual representation of NFT farming.

Each artwork will be minted as an NFT and placed into a farming vault. Using NIFTEX, each NFT is decomposed into a finite supply of ERC-20 tokens (i.e., shards) that can be freely traded as divisible parts of the parent piece. …

Announcing COIN Farming

What happens when you cross NFTs and social tokens? You get COIN.

Now, it’s time to add some DeFi into the mix.

Today, we’re happy to announce the COIN yield farming campaign for COIN/ETH Uniswap liquidity. COIN LPs will share a monthly allocation of 10,000 COIN and 1,000,000 CRED distributed pro-rata relative to the total amount of liquidity provided over the duration of the 30 day intervals. This will be the only way to obtain CRED, a token with exclusive privileges to the coin_artist NFT ecosystem explained further below.

With over $400k worth of liquidity today, COIN is currently one…

Greetings traveler!

The day has come. COIN is here.

For those who missed it, I tokenized myself as an ongoing social experiment called Coin’s E-Den. You can think of COIN as a collaborative governance token regarding me and the Coin Artist ecosystem.

Earn COIN to ascend the ranks and influence the syndicate. Amass enough governance power and the world is yours. Miss a challenge and wallow in pity.

The COINiverse is being crafted before our very eyes and we need your help to shape it.

And what would a COIN launch be without a crypto puzzle?

Let the…
