This October edition of our monthly report provides details of WIN’s current APR, drop amounts and our buyback and burn. We will also cover new additions to the platform, updates and provide you with links to all our recent posts that contain important information that was published during October 2020.
Monthly Drops and $WIN APR:
As our current users are aware, WINk focuses on wealth redistribution for its users. The daily revenues generated from wink.org are shared amongst its token holders.
Holding the $WIN token and freezing it under the windrops section of the platform, entitles you to a share of the daily revenues generated from ALL games played on wink.org. Each subsection of wink pays a certain percentage to the WINDROP pool, which accumulates throughout a 24 hour period and then distributes the total amount of $TRX, $BTT and $USDT once every 24 hours, to its frozen token holders. The APR for the $WIN token for the month of October was 60% and the APR for $DICE and $LIVE tokens during the month under review were 106% and 134% respectively. The APRs are calculated based on market prices on the first day of the month under review.
Here are the drop amounts for September vs October:
WINDROPS — $TRX: earnings below are based on having 10 million WIN tokens frozen for the month.
September 2020: 1,370 TRX
October 2020: 1,510 TRX
DICE DROPS — $TRX: earnings below are based on having 10,000 DICE tokens frozen for the month.
September 2020: 890 TRX
October 2020: 850 TRX
LIVE DROPS — $TRX: earnings below are based on having 10,000 live tokens frozen for the month.
September 2020: 940 TRX
October 2020: 1,120 TRX
DAU and Platform Traffic:
The DAU recorded in October was slightly higher than that of the previous month overall. In particular, the Live sub-platform received a marked increase in DAU partly because of the return of sporting events. This resulted in a marked increase in APR for Live tokens.
New Game Additions, Events and Platform Development
Wink continued with its plan of providing the best possible options of game selections for its players by adding 103 new slots during October. The slots added included slots from premium providers such as YGGDRASIL, PRAGMATIC and KALAMBA. The long-awaited in-house slot was also launched. The in-house slot is a fun progressive jackpot slot that offers the opportunity for players to win by large multipliers.
WINk organised a series of events in the course of the month under review. Two Dice mining events were held, with the first from 3rd to 5th and the second from the 21st to the 22nd. The Wink platform also participated in the “Gods of the Halloween” event which was organised by YGGDRASIL slots provider on the 26th of the month. The event targeted 4 slots from the provider and some Winksters won prizes for participation. Wink also organised its Halloween themed event dubbed “Crazy Halloween” on October 30th. The event had a total prize pool of 1,000,000 TRX and consisted of hunting for pumpkins and a leaderboard event.
During the month under review Sportsbook launched TVBET, which is a live betting platform. TVBET offers games such Keno, Wheel Joker, 21Bet, 7Bet, 5Bet and 1Bet. This adds to the numerous options players have when it comes to game choices available on Wink. A new games provider, SPRIBE, was added to the Wink platform. Spribe has games such as Keno, Mine, and Dice under the Live platform. This also gives additional options among the wide array of games on Wink to players.
During October, the TRX/WIN liquidity pool was included in the mining of the SUN token. The token is the governance token for the DeFi ecosystem on the Tron network. This has created additional utility for the Win token.
In October the Wink community voted to reintroduce mining bonuses on the Live and Dice platform. Mining bonuses are events in which players receive additional tokens for their wagering than the current level of wagering allows. The community also voted to change the Live platform’s USDT drop pool trigger time from 03:00 and 15:00 UTC to 01:00 and 13:00 UTC. This was to ensure smoother payment of drops to Live and subsequently Win token holders. Additionally, Dice multi-currency drops were launched. Players with frozen dice began receiving DICE, USDT and LIVE tokens as drops. This creates an opportunity for many to play with their favourite tokens on the Dice platform and for players with frozen Dice to accumulate different currencies.
WINk is very much aware that advertising is critical in achieving the objectives of the platform. For this reason ads for WINk continued to be displayed on Utorrent and the Tronlink wallet. This exposes WINk to thousands of potential users on a daily basis. Furthermore, the CEO continued the Great Voyage AMA by holding AMAs with numerous crypto communities to continue creating awareness of the WINk platform.
Buyback and Burn:
During the month under review, a total of 893,868 sub-tokens were burnt. The associated transaction hash and the amount of Dice and Live tokens burnt are as follows:
WINk Community Information:
During October, Coinbase included $WIN in its list of digital assets under consideration for inclusion in their custody services to their users. This can be considered as an endorsement of the stability of the Wink platform and the belief by institutions that the platform is here to stay. The team continues to work tirelessly in their efforts at building Wink. Dream big with Wink!
