Lending Marketplace Beta Open
Lending phase one has arrived! One of the most anticipated additions to the ZED RUN ecosystem is here and our community is wasting no time entering the Lending Marketplace.
In the first 12 hours, more than 3000 racehorses appeared in the Lending Marketplace, with over 6000 permits issued. If these kinds of metrics are any indication of enthusiasm, Lending is going to bring a lot of fun and racehorses back to the track.
If you haven’t started your Lending journey yet, all you have to do is click ‘Manage Permits’ from your stable and follow the prompts.
You will need ZED Tokens to acquire Lending Permits, if you haven’t claimed yours yet, head to https://claim.zedtoken.com/.

Discord Donkey Derby
It’s time to dust off your digital donkeys! What are donkeys doing in ZED RUN you ask? “Donkey” is a community term of endearment referring to any racehorse that isn’t getting to the checkered flag fast enough. If your racehorse has raced 25+ times and never won, you just might have a donkey and guess what – it’s eligible for the Discord Donkey Derby!
Time to usher all reluctant, stumpy legs towards the racetrack. Exclusive to ZED RUN Discord users, sign up your donkey before end of day Sunday, August 28, UTC, and every Tuesday (UTC) for the next three weeks your donkey will run in one custom race against other donkeys.
The overall champion of the Digital Donkey Derby will win a UUU racehorse, courtesy of Arbitrage.Run and the top three owners in the grand final will be granted ‘Respected Donkey Trainer’ Discord roles..
Enter today via ZED RUN Discord.
