The company is particularly offering up to 0.25 ETH for a Chief Meme Officer, and 1 ETH for a Crypto Game Economist.

The Rush Gaming Universe is a mobile-only blockchain platform with casual games where players can compete with each other and own a piece of the network.

Hike (formerly known as Hike Sticker Chat) was an Indian freeware, cross-platform instant messaging. In 2020, the project's developers reimagined the vision, focusing on gaming and crypto.
