1 – Binance NFT Marketplace Starts BitBow Mystery Box Countdown
Blockchain-based shooter BitBow reveals that its upcoming Mystery Box sale is almost here. Binance NFT is hosting the sale on its marketplace. In addition, a total of 27,500 boxes will be sold for 19.9 BUSD ($19.89) each. A player can buy up to 100 mystery boxes total.

2 – Metarun Makes IDO Changes
Mobile runner game Metarun made some changes to its upcoming IDO. GameFi and RedKite were originally hosting the game’s IDO on their platforms. However, Metarun announced that its IDO is now taking place solely on RedKite. On the other hand, the game is still partnering with GameFi. The GameFi platform will still support the project through marketing activities and its community. Also, GameFi is featuring the project in its aggregator.
Finally, Metarun is changing the name of its token. The game renamed its $GFTS token to $MRUN. The project’s community voted for this change.

Also, renters receive all gTHC gained from fighting daily battles, as well as power points and trophies. Owners receive the rental fees in return. Owners cannot sell or transfer their heroes while rented as they will be locked down until the rental ends.
