Reinvigorating and repurposing the tedious daily travels, KDrive intends to become the bright and brilliant successor of mobility apps featuring web3 drive-to-earn concept with GameFiSocialFi elements.
In this mostly automatable and virtual day and age, the demand and desire for daily physical travel are experiencing a significant decline. " Tedious ", " redundant " and sometimes " pointless " can probably encapsulate the feelings of many modern fellows – " Why go out when you can just stay put? ". In response to this, KDrive introduces a novel activity motivator aiming to challenge that way of thinking and to show users what it means to "make the most" of a seemingly trivial routine of most people's day.
Within the ecosystem of KDrive, users are entitled to a number of fascinating in-app features:
The offered range of NFTs can be differentiated according to their rate of profit. Each line possesses certain qualities that directly affects how much users can expect to earn and, consently, their retail price difference. The option for staking is available to users in the demo version, which facilitates the use of strategic buying and saving to achieve the optimal profit. Additionally, there is a possibility for users to create and market their own NFTs to render alternative revenues.
Users can anticipate in the demo version sophisticated 3D graphics with most of the aforementioned features, promising a great overview of the ecosystem, though the earning aspect is to be available in the official app release. This is to ensure the smooth operation and tackle heads-on any issues before the official launch to guarantee the best possible experience for the users.
A mindful project checking all the boxes for security: SAFU-contracted, KYC-checked and properly audited the best of respective agencies.
To ensure the growth of its publicity and community awareness, the project has embarked on several global marketing campaigns and is planning to implement more in future's time, including:

'Critical Core' is an innovative and interactive game designed to inspire social confidence and build self-esteem for neurodiverse adolescents
Game to Grow a non-profit organization dedicated to the use of games for therapeutic, educational, and community growth, released Critical Core this Fall, a first-of-its-kind, tabletop RPG (role-playing game) designed specifically for children and young adults on the autism spectrum, as well as those with ADHD and other learning and processing differences.
Game to Grow Co-Founders Adam Davis and Adam Johns , known endearingly in the mental health space as 'The Adams ,' have spent over a decade exploring and developing modalities around game-based therapy, facilitating group gaming sessions designed to combat isolation and build confidence in kids. Critical Core was designed to offer an encouraging space for kids to grow relationship skills and creative problem solving. After officially launching their non-profit via crowdfunding in 2017, Game to Grow partnered with Hong Kong -based DentsuMB – a creative agency with an emphasis on social good – to ideate and develop Critical Core . The game was also developed in collaboration with pediatric occupational therapist Dr. Virginia Spielmann (Executive Director of The Star Institute for Sensory Processing ) and the ICDL (Interdisciplinary Council for Developmental Learning).
"Before starting Game to Grow, we held drop-in groups for kids to play games like Dungeons & Dragons , which was a big inspiration for Critical Core, " says Adam Davis , who holds a master's degree in education and utilized his training in drama therapy to develop this unique game-based model. "Our approach has never been about addressing any kind of 'deficit,' but rather creating a space where kids can flourish socially on their own terms."
To better prepare facilitators of therapeutic gaming sessions, Game to Grow offers comprehensive training on their specific methodologies and best practices, including on-demand workshops and webinars tailored for mental health professionals and educators who utilize gaming in their practice. A knowledgeable team of therapists, psychologists, and autistics advised the Game to Grow team throughout the development stages to ensure that Critical Core met its primary therapeutic goals in building social confidence, frustration tolerance, emotional resilience, and caring for others, all while rolling dice and having fun.
"We create an intrinsically appreciated environment for socialization," says Co-Founder Adam Johns , Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. "The gameplay and structure of Critical Core (along with the training processes) are rooted in positivity and flexibility. We create an environment where players can make mistakes without feeling ostracized from the group, and gameplay can be tailored and adapted to best suit each individual's unique needs."
Critical Core was originally launched on Kickstarter in 2019, fully funded in 8 hours, and backed by 3,157 backers from around the world. Hundreds more have pre-ordered physical kits through BackerKit, and over 500 individuals have purchased the digital version of Critical Core . As part of the Kickstarter, supporters could purchase "Good Cause" copies to be donated to hospitals, clinics, schools, or other sites. Over 500 donated copies will be delivered at no cost.
The tabletop game will include physical components like cards, dice, tokens, and maps. As the majority of group sessions have been held virtually in recent years, the organization looks forward to sharing tactile components that will elevate the gaming experience, especially as in-person group sessions begin to return.
"The most satisfying thing has been witnessing the connections these kids have made with each other as a result of this community," says Adam Davis , "particularly for those who have struggled to cultivate meaningful friendships in school or extracurricular activities. While traditional developmental therapy does a great job in teaching 'social skills,' our goal has been to give kids the opportunity to apply those skills and improve upon them in a safe, welcoming environment."
The tabletop edition of Critical Core is now available for purchase. For more information on Game to Grow and Critical Core , visit gametogrow.org and criticalcore.org . Those interested in supporting the organization can donate and learn about other ways to contribute at gametogrow.org/support/ .

Z SPOT, the publisher of ZOIDS WILD NFT ARENA developed by ACT Games, revealed today that its flagship title is expected to go live on BNB Chain.
BNB Chain is a global, decentralized network that is essential to the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) ecosystem, one that is home to projects such as Axie Infinity, making it a powerful, efficient home for blockchain projects to go live on.
Z SPOT's ZOIDS WILD NFT ARENA is aiming for release at the end of 2022, and with the announcement of going live on BNB Chain, the company expects to attract general interest from the blockchain game community and in turn, bring in more users to the game in anticipation of the grand launch.
Z SPOT is also planning an NFT airdrop event of a limited-edition NFT card that is not only available for use in the game, but will include a hologram design only available for this particular airdrop. The details of the airdrop will be announced at a later date via the official social media channels of ZOIDS WILD NFT ARENA.

The "ZOIDS" series encompasses substantial content that TOMY Company, Ltd. has been developing as original intellectual property since 1983. ZOIDS are a biomechanical lifeform themed on dinosaurs and animals, named by combining the two words "zoic" (pertaining to animals or living beings) and "android" (a robot with a human appearance). ZOIDS are Real Moving Kit toys (assembly-type motorized toys) that are equipped with electric motors or wind-up mechanisms and move similarly to a real lifeform once assembled. For the first time in 12 years, efforts to develop "ZOIDS WILD," the latest ZOIDS series, were initiated in 2018.
