4 min readMar 3, 2023

Another week has come to an end with the DeRace team successfully achieving a number of key milestones throughout it.

Our focus has been on launching the improved race viewer, creating the filter system for the in-game marketplace, working on the Jockey mechanics & Jockey Silks generator, and continuing building the upcoming hippodrome.

Let’s take a closer look at this week’s achievements! 🤿

👁 Brand new race viewer

We are excited to announce the launch of our newly revamped race viewer!

With this update, players can now enjoy a seamless, user-friendly experience while watching their NFT horses competing on the track.

Improved race viewer is now live

Our team has adjusted the viewer to fit well together with our new platform design. All buttons are now conveniently concentrated in one place instead of being scattered around on the screen, reducing distractions and improving overall functionality.

So, make sure to take some time to appreciate it while watching the races. We hope you enjoy this latest enhancement to our platform!

🛍 In-game marketplace

This week, the DeRace team has been hard at work developing the highly anticipated in-game marketplace feature.

Our developers are currently focused on adding a filtering mechanism to help players find their desired NFT assets more quickly. In addition to this, we are integrating several features that will make the marketplace fully functional, such as placing NFTs into the market, smooth transactions during buying and transferring ownership.

The UI has also been updated to make it more intuitive and user-friendly. We’re excited to roll out this feature and bring even more value to our players’ NFT assets.

We’re excited about these developments and look forward to sharing more updates soon!

🏇 Jockey mechanics

Jockeys are getting ready to show off their skills on the racetrack!

This week, the DeRace team continued working on another exciting feature — DeRace Jockeys.

NFT Jockey with generic Silk

Specifically, we have been developing the Bonding aspect, which is an exciting feature that allows NFT Jockeys to bond with horses and improve their performance on the racetrack.

The team is excited to showcase the new Jockey mechanics soon, so stay tuned for more updates on this exciting development!

🕺 Jockey silks

Exciting news — our game designers have started working on the Jockey Silks’ generator!

Jockey Silks are going to be generated with various colours, patterns, and even logos, to create an authentic and unique experience for players.

Once completed, players will be able to equip their NFT Jockeys with these personalized silks. We are thrilled to see this feature come to life and can’t wait to share more updates with our community in the coming weeks.

🏰 Hippodrome update

This week, our game designers have beem continuing their work on the English hippodrome.

3D build of the customised Starting Gates

They are carefully placing all the different elements into their proper places to create a beautiful and authentic racing environment. Although it may take a bit more time to complete it, as our designers are also multitasking by working on the Jockey silks’ generator at the same time.

Cannot wait to see the finished look!
