A public university in Sydney tied up with the University of New South Wales and the startup LoyaltyX to let students participate in Unify Rewards program where they can earn ETHs making transactions through specially developed mobile application at stores located in the area of Sydney University. Students receive $5 worth of Ethereum for every ten transactions they make. The duration of the program is from October 6 to November 20 of 2017 and involves 500 participants.

By launching such project LoyaltyX and UNSW want to collect data about the peculiarities of behaviour of students when they get Ethereums in comparison with traditional points.

We are confident that they will find it much more attractive, but the study will give us a more definitive answer.

It’s not the first time when world famous universities use cryptocurrency to interact with students. Massachusetts Institute of Technology operated with cryptocurrency several times, distributing $500,000 in Bitcoins to undergraduate students and announcing launch of Litecoin project which was never actually implemented.

CryptoFighters and WAX have announced their partnership so that Crypto Collectibles is tradeable on OPSkins marketplace. OPSkins is notable for being the world's leading marketplace for online video game assets that are tradeable with WAX tokens, Bitcoin, US dollars, euros and other currencies. With this integration WAX tokens will become more useful and gain popularity within gamers' community that in turn will make them join the ecosystem.

A new era of gaming has begun as Ethereum-based ERC721 tokens grow in popularity. CryptoFighters is at the forefront of this revolution and continually looking to push the boundaries and improve user experience as the crypto world continues to grow at lightning pace.

The marketplace becomes the standard choice for trading Crypto Collectibles (a.k.a. ERC721 tokens). Crypto Collectibles follows CryptoKitties to be added on OPSkins and be tradeable with WAX tokens.

The concept of virtual collectible items on the blockchain adds a fresh value proposition to the crypto world. We see OPSkins and WAX as key players in developing our new Crypto Collectibles marketplace, and we're excited to integrate CryptoFighters into that ecosystem.

ERC721 token-based games are peculiar because the protocol standard doesn't allow even the creators of the game to control it, thus the fighters as well as the player's progress cannot be hacked or stolen.
