AfricaN3 launched the LifeSaver project on the Neo MainNet. The project is aimed at incentivizing blood donations in Africa by distributing LIFE NFTs that grant owners entries in raffles to win token prizes. LIFE NFTs are soulbound tokens that cannot be sold or transferred from the wallet that minted them. Funds spent to purchase LIFE NFTs are added to a pool and automatically enter the token’s owner into a raffle. Looking forward, the AfricaN3 team will host its first blood drive campaign at the University Teaching Hospital in Lagos, Nigeria, from 7:00 a.m. (UTC) – 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2023.

Flamingo launched the FUSD pool bonus program intending to bring the price of the stablecoin into parity with US $1.

To begin earning an increased APR, users that were already contributing their minted stablecoins to various FUSD-based LPs must migrate the LP tokens to the new smart contract.
