LONDON (Bywire News) - The world of Web3 gaming is witnessing a philanthropic revolution. The 3rd Edition of the EOS Community Poker Tournament, slated for Sunday, 26th March, is a shining example of how decentralised communities are reimagining the gaming landscape to fuel public goods funding. While competitors vie for a range of enticing prizes, they will also play for the chance to allocate funding towards EOS public goods projects.
This EOS web3 twist on charity poker tournaments highlights the creative ways that digital communities are coming together to support common causes. The event, organised by the .gems team, combines the excitement of online gaming with the noble goal of funding initiatives on the EOS platform. With free entry, the tournament aims to bring together a diverse range of participants, all united by their passion for gaming and social good.
The EOS Network, a third-generation blockchain platform powered by the EOS VM, is the driving force behind this unique event. Known for its low-latency, high-performance, and extensible WebAssembly engine, the EOS Network offers a seamless Web3 user and developer experience. The EOS Network Foundation (ENF) facilitates multi-chain collaboration and public goods funding for tools and infrastructure, positioning the EOS platform as a hub for innovation and philanthropy.
As participants battle it out on the virtual felt, they will have the chance to win NFT prizes, including Pomelo Astronaut Coins, Pomelo Season 4 Grant Collectible Packs, and more. But the true allure of the tournament lies in the EOS prizes, which are not retained by the players. Instead, these funds are donated to the Pomelo Season 4 grant of their choice, ensuring that the EOS community collectively benefits from the event.
The EOS Community Poker Tournament underscores the potential of Web3 technology to foster collaboration, creativity, and social good. While the event may centre around the thrill of competition, it ultimately serves to bring people together in the name of altruism, showcasing the strength of the EOS community and the transformative power of decentralised gaming.
