We have officially mined block 1 Million! We threw a hell of a party, rained oodles of TRTL to happy party goers, and had plenty of pepperoni stuffed crust to whether the storm! In this issue we tell you about the work that went in to making this week one of our most productive yet!
Hunter Faucet – A new faucet has finally launched! Hunter Faucet is a TurtleCoin faucet with an extra twist to it! Referral links and special “Hunter Codes” are features of this faucet. Hunter Codes allow users to redeem more than the default amount of TRTL. Users can also create referral links so that they can refer other users to the hunter faucet for a small TRTL kickback. Happy hunting! – Xaz
This week was one of the best yet! Between playing the games you guys made with your TurtleCities pages, and ones you wanted to watch on TwitchTurtle, I’m spent! Awesome community participation this week, and we’re really looking forward to next week!
This week we all became game streamers on Twitch Turtle, and rode our time machines back to the 90’s to see what kind of websites we could build on a floppy! We’re on track to hit 13,000 users in the Discord chat soon, join us! chat.turtlecoin.lol
@Turtley McTurtleton McDrizzle Thanks for doing the interview. I wanted to talk today about ForkMaps, and what forking means to the community, and why it’s worth tracking.
