Check them out here! 5 lucky bidders are now proud owners of the these NFTs. Afful hosted a trivia in TTR for a 25k $PAR prize pool. Andy announced the final standings of the #bowlpickemchallenge with ShaQ (28 points and winning 60k $PAR), Andy (with 27 points and winning 30k $PAR) and Cryptodelphia (24 points and winning 10k $PAR) in top 3. CF_user’s Adventurous Alpaca took home the grand prize of 25k $PAR for winning this week’s Parena. This week Shawn also added a fun little command to ParJar. Now “/chute” will also act just like “/tip” as a homage to Parachute. Can you chute me some PAR bruh? Also, notice the slight changes in the ParJar messages? Nice, eh? Plus, a nice surprise to the Parachute community from Crypto Lawyer who featured TTR and ParJar in his latest video. Thank You and a Happy Lohri to you too! Thanks a mill u/lazymobile for sharing this with us. For Two-for-Tuesday this week, Gian got Parachuters to post videos from their favorite bands. A fun Tuesday ensued!
