Day of the ZED Mint Now Live!

Got your Day of the Dead skin? Awesome! Not yet? Head to zed.run and mint one  and get yourself a VIP ticket to Day of the ZED. We’re anticipating a lot of fun on the tracks competing for an opportunity to win a share of $25k Zed Token and exclusive skins.

First up, the ‘Trick or Treat’ Challenge is kicking off tomorrow October 22  at 12:00 AM - 11:59 PM, October 25 (UTC).

Pro Tip: Only races run while wearing a Day of the Dead skin will be counted on the challenge leaderboards, so you need to ensure the horses you want to run have the skins!

As well as the three main challenges, check out the ‘Undead Horses’ and ‘Fresh Blood’ challenges too, bringing horses back to the track, and giving newly bred horses a spooky start to their racing careers!

ZED RUN Origin Story

I first found out about ZED RUN last year in Decentraland. Yes, ZED has its own MetaVerse home in Decentraland, very few are aware of this I’m sure, everyone should check it out.

As a child my father would take me out to the track and watch horses race, so it’s always been something close to my family and heart. It was amazing to see what ZED RUN was doing with digital horse racing. I was immediately fascinated. The amount of information one can learn and research about the game is amazing. Whether you just like horses, a fan of horse racing, casual gaming, it has something for everyone. 

What is your favourite part of ZED RUN?

One of my favourite aspects is a true feeling of horse ownership and strategy managing your own stable. Finding the best place to race, best gate, perhaps just rest some horses for tournaments and events. Researching horses I find is great fun, especially finding a winner. The ease to join races, any time of the day and night is another favourite of mine, whether on mobile or PC anywhere I might be.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to join ZED RUN?

My best advice I give to people is try to keep it simple and learn how you want to play the game. Don’t play like others, be an individual. Play within your own style, build up your knowledge about your stable of horses. Start with a budget, there is a learning curve. Some horses will teach you lessons. Take the wins with the losses. Like in real horse racing, any horse can beat any horse, any given day.
