MantleLetter January 2023

The Month of January saw the launch of the long-awaited MantlePlace platform, gaining over 40,000+ sign-ups within the first month. The Mantle team also combined forces with QuickSwap & Versa games to introduce MNTL tokens to the Polygon ecosystem. This cross-collaborative effort should bring more attention to AssetMantle within the Polygon ecosystem & open the door for future collaborations.

In addition, AssetMantle's testnet underwent a significant upgrade from test-mantle-1 to test-mantle-2. The update upgrades the CosmosSDK version to 0.45.9 and the MantleModules version to v0.4.0, affecting the upgrades to MantleWallet and MantleExplorer.

AssetMantle also celebrated the launch of their virtual HQ in Decentraland, so be sure to pop in and meet the Mantle mascot MintE and play a bunch of games within Mantle HQ to win wearables and Mantle tokens. Read more on the Decentraland launch here!
