Bemil Releases iOs Game And Bounces Back From AscendEX Hack

0

HANOI, Vietnam, Dec. 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Bemil has launched an iOs version of its gaming platform. In the wake of the recent AscendEX hack that sent shockwaves through the blockchain community, this comes as good news for the development of crypto and NFT gaming.

This iOs launch coincides with Bemil’s release of a Prison Mode NFT toward the end of December, which allows players access to a new gameplay mode besides Clan War, Defense, World Boss, and Spin & Attack mode.

Bemil is a Play-to-Earn (P2E) post-apocalyptic themed gaming ecosystem that allows players to pursue an income at the same time they pursue fun. Users can earn from attacking other players’ bases, taking part in clan wars, and by exploiting rare crystals to get rare items to sell on the marketplace.

Bemil Reimburses Users During a Year Full of Exploits

The whole of 2021 has been a rough year full of hacks and exploits. In late November, it was estimated that nearly $10 billion had been lost to bad actors putting decentralized finance (DeFi) in their crosshairs, and it may have been a silly move to start counting before the year was totally over.

With the recent hacking of Singapore-based crypto trading platform, AscendEX, it’s time to add another $70 million to the total. The funds were siphoned from three chains, and multiple projects were affected by the hack, but some of them are bouncing back with aplomb.

Due to the unexpected breach, many holders of Bemil’s $BEM token were left temporarily empty-handed. However, Bemil has already taken timely actions to remedy this theft and ensure its holders’ funds are safe.

Bemil achieved this feat by deploying a new smart contract and sending all users the new $BEM token via an airdrop, which was completed as of December 13th.

Earning Passive Income Through P2E Gaming and Bemil

P2E gaming has opened new doors to the world for securing passive income. There are reports of people quitting their jobs to pursue crypto gaming full time, and there are even reports of people making up to one million dollars gaming on the blockchain.

Bemil has drawn a serious community of players around its P2E gaming platform, and it’s a game that provides users multiple opportunities to increase their passive income streams through gaming.

Apart from earning tokens by gaming on Bemil’s platform and trading NFTs, users can also earn passive income through the platform’s built-in mining feature. This mining feature allows users to earn not only through trading NFT heroes and weapons and winning battles but by simply just participating in the game.

The referral system is also another means by which players can earn passively. The referrer gets 10% value when a referee makes an item purchase & gets 5% of the mining value which the referee makes per day.

Now that Bemil has made access to its P2E gaming available to the iOs community, more people than ever will be able to take part in all the ways Bemil facilitates earning a passive income from crypto gaming.

DraftKings Announces $1 Million+ Responsible Gaming Initiative Providing Multi-Year Financial Commitments to State Problem Gambling Councils

0

 

DraftKings Inc. today announced a multi-year financial commitment to assist the state councils across the country providing critical funding which will support the work of local nonprofit organizations. As part of the new initiative, entitled The State Council Funding Program, DraftKings has offered each state council $15,000 per year for three years, a total overall commitment of $1,575,000 over the span of the three-year program.

“Having spent several years of my career working with the state council in my home state, Massachusetts, I have seen first-hand how these organizations are a tremendous resource for individuals and families, and serve as a critical stakeholder and partner for gaming operators,” said Christine Thurmond, Director, Responsible Gaming. “DraftKings is committed to advancing responsible gaming in collaboration with state councils across the U.S. Our hope is that this funding will give councils that extra support needed to fund priority areas, expand services, or hire additional staff; whatever is most needed, we want to help financially.”

The State Council Funding Program may be used at the broad discretion of each council to bolster services and programs for individuals and families, and also for council staff, including applying the funds to trainings, conferences, helplines, and general capacity building. A state council may also use the funding to explore the potential for capacity building within neighboring states without a council presence. The program will begin a three-year trial in January 2022.

“State councils provide a first line of defense for addressing the needs of people impacted by problem gambling,” said Keith Whyte, Executive Director, National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG), whose membership includes the 35 State Affiliate Councils. “While it’s well established that these organizations provide critical assistance in the community, they don’t always have the resources and funds to take treatment and prevention to the next level. This significant initiative by DraftKings shows their commitment to and knowledge of the importance of the work state councils provide.”

The State Council Funding Program announcement comes after an active year for responsible gaming initiatives at DraftKings. In 2021, DraftKings devoted significant financial resources and deployed its responsible gaming staff to spearhead several initiatives including:

  • An agreement with the Cambridge Health Alliance, Division on Addiction, Harvard Medical School to pioneer a systems-based approach to employee training in responsible gaming.
  • A commitment to the American Gaming Association’s public service campaign Have A Game Plan.® Bet Responsibly which teaches consumers best practices in engaging in sports betting, such as the importance of only betting with legal, regulated operators and setting personal limits on play as necessary.
  • The expansion of responsible gaming education and marketing using a broad range of customer touchpoints including email, social media, DraftKings retail sportsbooks, and across in-stadium assets including via the Have A Game Plan.® Bet Responsibly campaign.
  • Multiple financial commitments to support evidence-based research, including one to the International Center for Responsible Gaming for a three-year study assessing risk and prevalence of sports betting problem gaming, and one to the Kindbridge Research Institute, which is embarking on its 50×4 Vets project at the nexus of veterans and responsible gaming.
  • A comprehensive in-house approach of offering the responsible gaming team as a key partner to teams across the company.
  • Internal investments to strengthen its capacity to promote responsible gaming for all staff and in front of consumers.

From Lara Croft to Thor, personal trainer re-creates the fitness regimes of iconic gaming characters

0
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

  • Ebuyer have teamed up with expert PT Mike Harle to create week-long diet and workout plans tailored to popular gaming characters.
  • If you’re wondering what it would take to get lean Lara Croft style or attain the body of a literal god (Thor), here is what it could take to maintain their physiques.

New year is here, and therefore it’s time to sign up for that annual gym membership you are probably, rarely, going to use. But have you ever sat at your console and wondered “how would they keep in shape” when it comes to gaming characters?

Well, Ebuyer have taken matters into their own hands to discover just that – not without a little help of course. Teaming up with expert PT and owner of the Frontrow gym in Yarm, Mike Harle, Ebuyer have created a week-long diet and workout plan specifically tailored to your favourite gaming characters.

So, if you’re wondering what it would take for Lara Croft to stay lean, or to maintain the body of a literal god (Thor), look no further.

Mario (Super Mario)

Although the live-action Super Mario movie is set to arrive in December 2022, the potbellied plumber’s short stature doesn’t exactly scream the Hollywood image of fitness. He’s not ripped, he’s not chiselled, but he’s stocky and my God can that plumber jump. And as it turns out, you don’t have to look far to find capable athletes of a similar build.

The workout and diet of a rugby prop fit Mario’s mould nicely. Bulky but physically fit, and fully capable of sudden spurts of speed, the use of weights and cardio workouts will help Mario build the muscle his body needs to jump into every pipe.

Of course, Mario will need to cut back on the heavy breakfast foods in favour of something healthier. However, given his proclivity for mushrooms, this means he can eat a huge variety of meal options by substituting meat for a tasty mushroom-based meat alternative.

Lara Croft (Tomb Radar)

Dodging the lethal traps of tombs and scaling ancient ziggurats is no simple feat. Lara Croft needs to be strong yet flexible, with plenty of athletic and gymnastic prowess to overcome her foes. That means developing a healthy level of muscle without bulking up.

Lara’s workout is all about Calisthenics, bodyweight training that works large groups of muscles simultaneously without the use of additional weights and exercise machines. This allows her to strengthen all the muscles in her body but leave herself slim enough to easily swing between ledges and squeeze through crevices.

As for diet, Lara is spoilt for choice. With her vast pockets of wealth, she can afford the best food from around the world, meaning she’ll have no trouble eating well while tailoring her diet to perfectly compliment her workout.

Thor (Thor: God Of Thunder)

With the Thor: Love and Thunder movie dropping on the 8th of July, Thor’s going to have to do quite a bit of work to shift his beer belly and regain his thunder post-Endgame. And in order to attain the body of a literal god, you need to do some pretty intense workouts and diet adjustments. So, what better place to turn to for inspiration than the fittest man on Earth, CrossFit champion Matt Fraser.

CrossFit is all about constantly varied, high-intensity weight and cardio movements that work the entirety of the body. Combine this with a diet designed to shed as much fat as possible and Thor will be well on his way to rebuilding his eight-pack in no time.

Of course, there are a few things even the God of Thunder can’t live without. There’s no keeping Thor off the beer, which is why his diet accommodates for a litre of the frothy beverage each day.

“New Year is here, and so are our annual resolutions to get fitter. So, it got us thinking over at Ebuyer – just what would it take for our favourite gaming characters to keep their shape and save the world” says Andy Roberts, E-Commerce Director of Ebuyer.
