Move-to Earn (M2E) game RunBlox is holding a virtual marathon from October 1-31, 2022. The team announced on September 27, 2022, that it has extended the registration until September 30.

Dubbed ‘Run Blox, Run,’ the first-ever “Bear Market Marathon” will give away blue-chip Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) to the top 3 winners of the competition. 

Here’s what we learned about the event so far.

Bear Market Marathon

On September 20, 2022, RunBlox announced the first-ever virtual marathon. Along with the announcement, the team airdropped free RunBlox marathon NFT shoes to all “$Sweat lovers.” Players can use the exclusive NFTs to join the upcoming ‘Run Blox, Run” marathon event.

“Today we are really excited to announce that RunBlox will airdrop free RunBlox marathon shoes to all $Sweat lovers. The reason for this free NFT giveaway is that RunBlox will hold a virtual marathon event next month,” the RunBlox team stated.

The marathon shoes are the main requirement for joining the race. They will give players two energies to start the contest. Having more than one pair can help bring more energy (allowing runners to maximize their $RUX capacity).

The entire competition will run for 30 days. This will give participants ample time to gain as much $RUX as possible through running. The top three players who have accumulated the most tokens will win the top prize. RunBlox will announce the winners on November 4.

How to Join

All $SWEAT holders are qualified to receive marathon shoes. Players may join the contest as long as they hold the token (no minimum amount required).

Participants must submit their sweat address or Centralized Exchange (CEX) User I.D., as well as their RunBlox wallet address. The team will airdrop the NFT to a player’s in-app spending directly.

Referral Program

The event also has a referral program. According to the team, participants are encouraged to provide their RunBlox wallet address as an invitation code. They get a chance to receive additional marathon shoes upon verification of their entry.

Players will get one free marathon shoe for every invitation milestone (the first 20, the next 40, and the next 100 invites). Invitees must put their inviter’s RunBlox wallet address into this registration form.

About RunBlox

RunBlox is a Move-to-Earn (M2E) game built on the Avalanche blockchain. The Web3 game is part of the broader OpenBlox ecosystem, which includes other upcoming projects such as Rogueblox, Landblox, and Actionblox.

Basically, M2E games like RunBlox merge the real and the virtual world, while promoting physical fitness. This is done through the incentivization of users for engaging in workouts, most importantly running. The project is similar in concept to titles such as STEPN, StepApp, Genopets, and Calo Run (click here to read more about these titles).

RunBlox utilizes two tokens: $OBX and $RUX.

  • $OBX: The governance token of the OpenBlox universe. Users can stake it to receive rewards, or use it for Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) voting. As of this writing, $OBX is trading at $0.007269, with a $72,663,589 fully diluted market cap, and a 24-hour volume of $241,355 (per CoinMarketCap).
  • $RUX: Designed for Energy Recharge or for Leveling up/Enhancing an NFT. Holders can also use $RUX as MINT fee. As of this writing, $RUX is trading at $0.03987, with a $159,506 market cap, and a 24-hour volume of $45,344 (per CoinMarketCap).
