ZED Knights - this Friday, 8pm ET

Friday Knights in the metaverse are always a great time with the Knights of Degen recapping all the news in the world of ZED RUN.


Make sure to tune into ZLEAD Talk weekly on Tuesdays at 9PM ET. This week Danshan, Two Fools & Their Moulah, DK Racing, Kingpin Racing and others give their insight on breeding 2.0, Monday Night Mayhem, concurrent tournaments, and some individual racehorse analysis. Listen to the recording to catch up.

ZED RUN Halloween

Stop in for a spell, because it's two more sleeps until All Hallows’ Eve, and we've got three challenges with different conditions to give stable owners a chance to fill their pillowcase up with the sweetest treat... ZED Token! 

Challenge #1: Black Cats: Midnight Black racehorses bred after 00:00am 17 October UTC will compete for the most wins in paid racing.

Challenge #2: Undead Horses: All racehorses that haven’t raced since 30 September can compete for the five fastest times at each distance.

Challenge #3: Borrowing a Ghost Horse: Users who signed up after 30 September who borrow a Ghost White racehorse and race five times on Halloween will be entered into a draw.

Please read full qualification and challenge details here, and happy hunting! 

Concurrent Tournaments

Gone are the days of benching your runners, because concurrent tournaments are here! Starting Tuesday 1 November, there will be two tournaments running daily, and stable owners will be able to enjoy free and paid qualification. 

There will be a standard tournament format alongside the beloved conditionals, giving both your Z2 monsters and pacers that only a mother could love a place to compete. The daily prize pool allocation will be ⅔ for paid tournaments and ⅓ for free tournaments.

You can find the complete schedule for next week here.

ZED RUN World Cup Mint

Our World Cup event is getting closer to kick off, and the Allowlist is now officially closed! With the pre-sale only five days away, we’re breaking down all the need-to-know info one more time. 

Allowlist pre-sale

If you've registered for an Allowlist spot, you will be sent an email in the coming days that will confirm whether you’ve qualified for one. An Allowlist spot doesn’t guarantee you a skin, but it does give you access to the pre-sale starting on Nov 2 UTC. 

There are only 500 skins reserved for this pre-sale. It's first come, first served, so get in quick. Priced at 0.055 wETH (ZED Token price TBC), every wallet on the Allowlist can mint one skin during pre-sale.

Set a Reminder for the Public Sale

If you didn’t get on the Allowlist, no need to worry! We’re also having a public mint from November 4-11. There’s 1600 skins in total (including the 500 allocated for the pre-sale). The public sale price is 0.075 wETH (ZED Token price TBC), and there’s a one-per-wallet mint cap during this public mint as well.

The mint will be unrevealed, with the big reveal of what country’s skin you’ve got on November 14! Challenges start on November 20, and it's gonna be a whole vibe watching these skins tearing up the track. LFG!!

Melbourne Cup Mayhem

The Melbourne Cup is Australia's most famous racing event held over a distance of 3200 metres at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne. Continuing our partnership with the Victoria Racing Club, we’ll be celebrating it by running three custom races for the Melbourne Cup Mayhem. If you qualified for a daily tournament final between Monday-Saturday this week, you could get selected, and might just win big.
