DrugWars introduces FUTURE token

DrugWars has introduced a new token FUTURE. This is named after FutureShock the company behind DrugWars, as well as Fundition and OnGame.

The token will be used for rewards going forward in the DrugWars game...

First of all, we would like to notify all the players that in 48h the daily prize and the heist will see some changes. There won’t be anymore rewards with Steem, instead we are adding a new mechanic that will allow you to earn the FUTURE Tokens. While the daily prize will increase depending of your rank, the number of maximum deposit will be also limited until we deploy our final solution against bots.

[NOTE : The FUTURE token on is not connected to DrugWars or FutureShock.]

PicWar – a new gambling game on Steem

A new gambling game called PicWar is coming to Steem.

PicWar is a huge battlefield that consists of 10 000 cells with images. When you add your image to the canvas you get tokens which allow you to earn dividends and compete for constantly increasing jackpot.

In the meantime they have released a photomosaic made of 300,800 Steem avatars. There are prizes for finding a hidden secret and certain images.

Steem - The People's Blockchain

A great read from @niallon11...

STEEM is the gateway to cryptocurrency that people just don't know about yet. That will change and the sooner people realise that the better it will be for them.
