All You Need to Know About The LARP Pass

There's been a lot of larp in the markets recently

From Bitboy & Ben.Eths microcap scams to the #FireGaryGensler campaign (much needed) and to the drama of CZ selling BTC to protect BNBs $220 liquidation price at all costs.

but there is no LARP more LARPier than this.

The LARP pass, aka your golden ticket to a Lifetime Access to Research Pass.

A message from blocmates founder Grant:

We have always wanted to shape this Brand? Thing? Community? Whatever it is in the way that I would like to digest information about the crypto space.

Taking inspiration from the early days of Vice, Barstool Sports, The Athletic etc. we want you to enjoy digesting the work we put out there. Too many places release stuff that either makes you die from cringe overload or will bore you to death. Either way, it aint great.

Weve got the new blocmates website coming with research reports, how-tos, project reviews and all the stuff youve come to expect from us.

We will take on the crypto news and challenge the status quo as its boring, corrupt and needs a refresh. Same blocmates tone, but news

Theres a tonne of other sh*t but I won't bore you to death so just enjoy the LARP.

big love!

- Grant blocmates

What is a LARP pass?

The new blocmates website will still feature ALL of the same free content but The LARP pass will give you a back door, behind-the-scenes look into crypto through the blocmates research portal.

Here's a mini sneak peek of what's included:

  • Actionable insights

  • Yield farming strategies

  • Honest token reviews

  • What we are hearing behind the scenes

  • On-chain wallet analysis

  • Fatual airdrop strategies

  • Private videos including The Weekly Larp

  • Early access to whitelists, beta testing and airdrops

And, most importantly, real-life blocmates events held around the globe where we may even break out proper cool snapbacks, hoodies and tees.

The community has already had early access to Wen Llamas NFT mint, Savvy DeFi boosted IFO rewards and a bunch of beta whitelists including the HXRO network and nftperp.

How do I get a LARP pass?

Grab a fren, flip your snapback backwards and prepare yourself as you go on a journey to collect the 4 elusive Quest for Larp badges through Tide Protocol Kinda like Ash Ketchum running around Canto sorry KANTO.

Part 1 is live on Tide Protocol you have 12 more days, anon.

Our Take

Yeah bit of a different newsletter today, tbh. I cant be dealing with another LSD-Fi thread, newsletter or shill

Thats why we wanted to give YOU, The Ape Enclosure community the early low down on what's coming.

PS here's your ticket to the back door of Discord 井井井

PPS if youve made it this far there is already a confirmed airdrop AND event being planned for holders 井井井

Have you completed Quest 1?

and earned a Quest for Larp Badge #1?
