A business plan and road map has been published on the Bonkers Club website which outlines their financial allocations to fund rewards and incentives along with integration plans with Strava, Polar, Garmin and Zwift races.

Just 2 months ago on Feb. 10, the home at 6315 11th Ave. South, located in Gulfport, FL was sold for $654,310, or about 210 Ethereum (ETH). The sale marks it as the first-ever NFT house auction in the United States.

On top of these two events, the Tampa Bay region is bursting at the seems with development in the crypto/ Web3 space. With events like Synapse this past February, and the Blockchain Summit coming back this November, along with CEO of Ark Invest, Cathy Wood moving her operations to St. Petersburg the town is buzzing with excitement.
