Welcome to the seventh Alpha newsletter. We curate alpha for you. That’s it; that’s the newsletter.

Merit Circle is a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) with a mission to maximize value accrual across different games in the metaverse. They are creating a platform at the intersection of capital (investors), expertise (platform and managers) and players (gamers).

Merit Circle have directly copied Illuvium’s staking model and this could be the start of a very beautiful thing. Euro Sniper with the exact point on the chart where $ILV’s staking went live.
