Thanks for reading. If you delegate or plan to delegate your ADA - you can use my link and Everstake SPO will share some profits with me (which I will use for promoting Cardano locally and globally). The process is very easy, but just in case - there is a video explanation.

As is well known, we are a collective of artists from poor communities, we have a project for the education of children and teenagers through digital inclusion and preparation to earn monetary values ​​by playing in the block chain when they were young. We intended to do it through Axie Infinity, but as we are cardanists, as soon as we discovered PlayerMint, we decided to wait to start the social project within our cardan mada. Can someone help us by indicating in Portuguese where the game is standing? How can we wait among the first in the queue? We have a few ADAS for that. Someone from our Pov. to help? Thanks in advance…
