Scale the Ivory Tower, Either by Being Right or Knowing Who Else Is.

Press Release – updated: Aug 26, 2021 17:00 EDT

LOS ANGELES, August 26, 2021 (Newswire.com) – From New York Times bestselling pop science authors Zach and Kelly Weinersmith, along with celebrated game designer Matt Fantastic, comes a game that you can win either by knowing the truth or knowing who doesn’t. Everyone Else Thinks This Game Is Awesome (by Erasmus Fox) is a tabletop trivia game where players take on the role of scientific professionals. Either by knowing the answers to questions or by knowing who, if anyone, knows the answer, they earn citation points to fight their way up the academic ladder. Do you believe in yourself or follow along with whatever everyone else thinks? The first person to the top achieves the coveted status of Emeritus Professor.

With meticulously researched questions across a variety of scientific, historical, and just really weird topics, Everyone Else Thinks this Game Is Awesome will not only challenge your knowledge of the universe but may explode scientific “truths” you think you know.

When asked what the couple’s inspiration was for the game, Zach responded, “We decided to make a trivia card game, but it ended up being a research project. It turns out a lot of trivia people “know” is incorrect. Spinach? Not especially high in iron. A vomitorium? Not a place where decadent Romans went to vomit. The Great Wall of China? Actually, pretty hard to see from space. Megabats? Okay, megabats are real. And they have excellent vision. Anyway, if you’re the kind of person who can say “citation needed” with a straight face, we are here for you.”

Anyone with time to spare is encouraged to order the game to play with friends. According to designer Matt Fantastic, “This is a trivia game where nearly every question will cause you to waste several days on Wikipedia.”

The core game has over 1,000 questions. Planned expansions include a Death Pack, a Pseudoscience pack, and “Sex, Drugs, and Citations,” an uncomfortably large pack containing all the questions deemed too inappropriate for the main deck.

As Zach said, “I spent a full hour convincing myself that, contra the Internet, Cleopatra never had a [CENSORED] filled with bees. Also, turns out using [CENSORED] wasn’t a thing in the Victorian era. Also, you know those fish that swim up your [CENSORED]? Probably not a thing. The claim comes from a single incident that likely didn’t even happen. However, there are “[CENSORED]” which, well, I don’t want to give away too much.” Everyone Else Thinks This Game Is Awesome is live on Kickstarter now.

About the Creators:

press release PRESS RELEASE. Singapore, September 30, 2021. Less than three weeks after releasing its first dApp EverOwn for Binance Smart Chain, EverRise is proud to announce they will launch EverBridge to both the Ethereum and Polygon blockchains on October 5th. With EverBridge, EverRise will make its revolutionary suite of dApps available to projects on both networks starting with EverOwn for Ethereum on October 5th, followed by EverOwn for Polygon on October 8th.

PRESS RELEASE. Singapore, September 30, 2021. Less than three weeks after releasing its first dApp EverOwn for Binance Smart Chain, EverRise is proud to announce they will launch EverBridge to both the Ethereum and Polygon blockchains on October 5th. With EverBridge, EverRise will make its revolutionary suite of dApps available to projects on both networks starting with EverOwn for Ethereum on October 5th, followed by EverOwn for Polygon on October 8th. This will expand the reach of EverRise’s security solutions and enable the $RISE token to be traded and utilized across all three networks.

“This is an exciting time for us to expand the EverRise Ecosystem and also introduce improvements to our project. This bridge allows us to take the dApps and blockchain solutions we have been building and make them more accessible to all developers on the Binance Smart Chain, Polygon, and Ethereum networks,” said Suresh Maddineni, EverRise CEO and Founder.

Keeping with the standard of being security pioneers in the DeFi space, EverRise is bringing a novel approach to the cross-chain bridge concept to protect $RISE holders. Typically tokens are minted and burned as they move between chains, but EverRise is creating new smart contracts and locking the supply within the bridge: allowing holders to transfer tokens on one chain to the bridge and receive tokens on another chain without paying a transaction tax beyond gas fees. This locking and unlocking mechanism on the bridge makes it impossible for hackers to exploit a mint function to mint an infinite number of tokens while keeping the circulating supply the same across the three different networks– effectively creating three different $RISE pairings with one circulating supply.

When EverRise launched on June 15, 2021, the project immediately became famous for being the first to introduce the concept of a strategic buyback to crypto and has been forked thousands of times. With EverBridge, EverRise will introduce separate Strategic Buyback Reserves and automatic buyback functions to each network. Like on BSC, the Ethereum and Polygon Strategic Buyback Reserves will be locked and only able to buy and burn $RISE tokens on the respective network and debut a new feature of the ability to swap the native coin in the reserves for a stable coin.

New trading pairs of RISE/ETH and RISE/MATIC will have their initial liquidity funded by EverRise and will be fair launched on October 5th, 2021 with no presale. Users will be able to trade the ETH backed pair on Uniswap and the MATIC backed pair on QuickSwap.

RISE/ETH – Tokenomics – 6% Tax

1% Rewards to Holders

2% Project Sustainability: Operations, Marketing, Development

3% Buyback Strategic Funds

RISE/MATIC – Tokenomics – 11% Tax (Same tax as Binance Smart Chain)

2% Rewards to Holders

3% Project Sustainability: Operations, Marketing, Development

6% Buyback Strategic Funds

EverRise will also be making EverBridge available to projects on the Binance Smart Chain, Ethereum, and Polygon looking to access the other blockchains without the hassle of developing their own bridge. Projects interested in utilizing EverBridge can contact the EverRise team at partnerships@everrise.com

About EverRise

A blockchain technology start-up committed to bringing security solutions to the DeFi space through an ecosystem of decentralized applications (dApps). EverRise was the first token to bring the buyback to cryptocurrency with the novel function that purchases tokens from the open market and immediately burns them. $RISE tokens are required to utilize their dApps, with EverOwn released in September and more coming soon. EverRise aims to bring additional levels of trust, safety, and security to Binance Smart Chain, Ethereum, and Polygon space.
