Blur, an up-and-coming Ethereum-based non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace, has launched a delayed airdrop of its native BLUR token. Blur, the second largest NFT marketplace behind market leader Open Sea, launched its platform last October and has been promising that it would doll out BLUR token rewards to its users ever since.
It went as far as allocating so-called “care packages” to its users that represented a claim on upcoming BLUR tokens to be airdropped. These care packages were finally authorized for unlocking as of 1200 Eastern Time on Tuesday, allowing Blur users to claim their BLUR tokens for the first time.
$BLUR is now LIVE
All traders across all marketplaces in the last 3 months, Care Package holders, and Creators are eligible for the airdrop.

Care package holders now have 60 days to claim their BLUR, an Ethereum-based ERC-20 token. A total of 360 million of BLUR is being “distributed to Traders, Care Package holders, and Creators… Claimable immediately”. This marks the start of what Blur refers to as season 2 in its story, where the protocol decentralizes.

“BLUR gives the community control over the protocol’s value accrual and distribution,” Blur continues, adding that “the Blur Foundation has been created to help foster community-led growth for the protocol”. Blur also hailed what it called “breathtaking” growth since its launch 4 months ago, which has seen 146,823 users trade $1.2 billion worth of NFTs.

BLUR listed major exchanges on Tuesday, including Coinbase. It surged as high as $1.28 per token in the immediate aftermath of the listing, but has since dropped back to around $0.60. That still gives the market value of the 360 million BLUR dropped on Tuesday of more than $200 million. But Blur can maintain its impressive growth rate of recent months, then its market cap could go significantly higher.
Altcoins to Consider
BLUR is clearly a token with a lot of potential. But diversification is important in the investment world. Here is a list of tokens that readers might also want to consider, as reviewed by the Inside Bitcoins team.
Fight Out (FGHT) – Presale on Now
The young move-to-earn crypto niche has shown a lot of promise, but early success stories like STEPN have significant limitations that have, so far, prevented them from conquering the mainstream. Fight Out, which touts itself as the future of move-to-earn, wants to change that in 2023.
Fight Out is a brand new web3 fitness application and gym chain that rewards its users for working out, completing challenges, and competing within a first-of-its-kind fitness metaverse. While existing M2E applications such as STEPN only track steps and require expensive non-fungible token (NFT) buy-ins to take part, Fight Out takes a more holistic approach to tracking and rewarding its users for their exercise and activity, and doesn’t require any expensive buy-ins to take part.
$4.1 Million Raised! 🤯
WOW! Yet another milestone smashed 🔥
Don’t forget, the price of $FGHT will keep increasing every 12 hours! 🚀

Fight Out is currently conducting a presale of the FGHT token that will power its web3 ecosystem and has already raised a whopping more than $4.1 million. The token is scheduled to list across centralized exchanges in April at $0.033 per token. Investors should move quickly, as if they secure tokens now, they could be sat on paper gains of nearly 50% by the time the crypto token lists on exchanges at the start of Q2. Gains could be even higher if investors make use of Fight Out’s generous bonus scheme.
C+Charge (CCHG) – Presale Enters Stage 2
C+Charge is currently building a blockchain-based Peer-to-Peer (P2P) payment system for EV charging stations that will allow the drivers of electric vehicles (EVs) to earn carbon credits. C+Charge aims to boost the role of carbon credits as a key incentive for the adoption of EVs. At present, large manufacturers of EVs, like Tesla, earn millions from selling carbon credits to polluters.
C+Charge wants to democratize the carbon credit market by allowing more of these rewards to find themselves in the hands of the EV owners rather than just the big businesses. C+Charge has just started its pre-sale of the CCHG token that its platform will use to pay at EV charging stations. Tokens are currently selling for $0.0145 each, though by the end of the presale, this will have risen by 70%.
🚨 ANNOUNCEMENT: A new milestone accomplished! 🏅
⭐️ Over $1 MILLION RAISED ⭐️
This is a great moment for the C+Charge Crew!

Investors interested in getting in early on a promising environmentally friendly cryptocurrency project should move fast, with the project having already raised over $1 million and the presale having already entered its second stage. Investors should note that the remaining tokens could be scooped up quickly. A crypto whale recently scooped up over $99 worth of CCHG in one transaction, as can be verified here on BscScan.
Calvaria (RIA) – RIA Token Now Available Across Various CEX and DEXs
Crypto play-to-earn (P2E) gaming start-up Calvaria, who are currently building what is billed to become one of 2023’s most viral blockchain-powered games, recently concluded a presale of the RIA token that will power its web3 ecosystem. Calvaria will be releasing its fantasy-themed non-fungible token (NFT) battle cards game Duels of Eternity later this year.
Investors who missed out on the presale should not despair – RIA was recently listed on major crypto exchanges like LBank and BKex and will soon be listed on Uniswap. RIA is still trading at a fairly subdued price of just above $0.01. When the game launches later this year, some observers think this price could go much higher.
We have some exciting news, we are very close to completing our staking platform and look forward to announcing it in the coming days.
Our bridge is still being worked on and once it is completed we will be listing on Uniswap. More news on that to follow so stay tuned.
