FlowPlay Surpasses $550,000 Milestone in Funds Raised for American Cancer Society

Online Community Drives In-Game Fundraisers Pa Half-Million Mark

FlowPlay creator of one of the most powerful connected gaming platforms, today announced its Vegas World in-game fundraisers have surpassed $550,000 raised for the American Cancer Society (ACS). This news comes on the heels of FlowPlay's most recent campaign, which raised $60,000 for ACS's Patient Navigation Program. FlowPlay also celebrates over one million charms sold for ACS, a major driver of overall fundraising.

In October, FlowPlay offered a virtual branded charm in the company's flagship connected game, Vegas World , which was available for players to purchase. Funds raised were designated to ACS's Patient Navigation programs, an evidence-based intervention that connects cancer patients with volunteer health system navigators who can provide personalised assistance to patients, families, and caregivers, from diagnosis through survivorship. Navigation programs provide each patient with the opportunity for customised care, ultimately helping to ensure that all cancer patients have a fair opportunity to prevent, find, treat, and survive cancer.

"Our FlowPlay players always show up, continuing to support ACS no matter what else is going on in their lives or in the world," said Derrick Morton , President and Co-Founder, FlowPlay. "I'm so proud of how much we've raised for this incredible nonprofit, and am hopeful other organisations will take note of this power of community."

FlowPlay hosted a second fundraising campaign in May, raising $60,000 for ACS's Road To Recovery program, which helps ensure more patients can get to their potentially lifesaving treatment through free rides. FlowPlay also participated in the 2022 Fit2Be Cancer Free Step Challenge put on by ACS, raising over $28,000 and ranking 4th in the nation and 1st in the Pacific Northwest for funds raised.

"The American Cancer Society is so grateful to FlowPlay, and specifically to Vegas World players, for their generous support of patient navigation, transportation, and other lifesaving programs for cancer patients," said Paula Aspiazu , Vice President, Community Impact, American Cancer Society. "Their efforts are a wonderful example of how a company can engage its customers in philanthropic efforts that create real impact in local communities."

Quixant is pleased to announce the launch of its market-leading QMAX Gaming hardware platform, designed to deliver the highest resolution content, smoothest gameplay, and the ultimate player experience.

Quixant launches the QMAX Gaming hardware platform, the most powerful and feature-rich Gaming PC

The new platform is powered by Intel®, offering exceptional GPU performance, and is available with or without a dGPU, allowing customers to increase their hardware performance by adding their graphics card of choice.

Highly customizable, it meets the requirements of all major global Gaming jurisdictions, including GLI-11.

Commenting on the launch, Duncan Faithfull , EVP, and CCO at Quixant said "We believe our customers' focus should be on content, not developing hardware solutions to build them on. They need the freedom to develop content with the confidence that their solution is reliable and as powerful as their imagination needs it to be. That's why Quixant developed, IQ, IQON, and QMAX , its range or Gaming PCs designed to provide maximum performance based on budget, market, and product needs. The new QMAX is our most powerful and feature-rich platform yet, giving customers a platform that goes as far as their imagination can."

Duncan continued: "Whilst developing specialist, game-changing technology is core to the Quixant offering, partnerships are equally important – it's our responsibility to support our customers to make sure that they get the most out of their Quixant products. Our team is always on hand to enable customers to maximise the potential of their QMAX platform, so they can focus on the aspects that allow them to get ahead of the game."

He concluded: "After launching Quantum and Qinetic , our range of modular Gaming and Sports betting cabinets, we identified the need to expand our Software Solutions to further support customers. We now offer a comprehensive suite of software and integration support solutions, which allow game designers to focus their efforts on developing the ultimate game content and player experience, as well as enabling management of the cabinet the game sits on, and a collection of integration solutions. We would love to discuss this with game manufacturers who are looking to enhance their content and expedite the time it takes to get their cabinets to market."

XPLA Governance Proposal Approved to Support Individual Holders with $XPLA Still on FTX Exchange

  • Proposal unanimously approved with a high voting rate reflecting the common view of Validators to protect individual $XPLA holders
  • The relief initiative represents a massive step towards support for $XPLA holders, helping to set a positive precedent throughout the Web3 industry
  • A total of 19,600,000 $XPLA to be transferred to a Smart Contract

-The XPLA Blockchain, a next generation of Web3 mainnet developed with gamers at the core of its design, today announced that a governance proposal to support individual $XPLA holders related to the FTX incident has been approved with unanimous consent.

Relief fund for $XPLA holders on FTX

The voting on the Relief Fund Support proposal was conducted for seven days from January 24 until January 31, 2023 , at 13:00 UTC . The vote was unanimous in favor of the proposal with three-quarters of eligible voters participating. Individual $XPLA holders could exercise their voting rights by delegating via proxy to Validators who were able to cast votes on their behalf. The voting process was fully transparent, and viewable through the XPLA Vault and XPLA Explorer advanced middleware based on the XPLA mainnet.

The high participation rate and unanimous voting outcome are interpreted as a strong reflection of the Validators' desire to support the individual $XPLA holders. The XPLA Team and XPLA Chain ecosystem participants have opened unprecedented possibilities for practical support which could give an example to the digital asset industry.

"The support for the XPLA community is phenomenal and we could not be happier that our ecosystem has approved this relief fund. These have been unprecedented times and our community has supported each other through it," stated XPLA CEO Paul Kim . "This is in stark contrast to the rejection of holder support votes that were attempted in other blockchain projects after the FTX incident. We are looking forward to starting the process of making our holders whole again."

The relief proposal includes a total of 19,600,000 $XPLA which will be transferred to the Relief Fund Support Contract assigned from the Reserve Wallet. XPLA Chain ecosystem participants will be able to check the status since the transferred $XPLA will be stored on the Contract. The transfer process is expected to be completed in March and the details will be announced through the official community channel of XPLA.

Claims for $XPLA from the Relief Fund will be when the $XPLA is claimable through a legal process with objective proof of ownership. XPLA team is also considering preemptively supporting individual $XPLA holders who have secured their proof of ownership if court proceedings are delayed. XPLA is the first blockchain to develop and approve a Relief Fund for individual holders concerning the FTX incident.

About XPLA

XPLA is the next generation of Web3 mainnet, developed with gamers at the core of its design. Based on the idea of "Explore and Play", XPLA is the newest innovation in the Web3 gaming space, using COSMOS SDK for optimization in partnerships with Animoca Brands, Xterio, YGG, Cosmostation, and Everstake.
