SuperFarm, an NFT platform specialized in supporting NFT and fungible token yield farming, has partnered with Virtue Poker a ConsenSys-backed platform for playing provably fair poker on the blockchain that recently closed a $5m funding round.
Virtue Poker will be holding an Initial DEX Offering (IDO) on SuperStarter, SuperFarm’s new launchpad, as well as other joint initiatives post-IDO to integrate NFTs into Virtue Poker.
In the IDO, Virtue Poker will put a small portion of its VPP tokens for sale on SuperStarter, opening up access to SuperFarm’s community, who will be offered an exclusive chance to become Virtue Poker token holders. The VPP token can be staked to run Justice Nodes and earn 50% of the platform’s fees, in addition to its utility for accessing marketing initiatives, saving on fees and shaping the development of the Virtue Poker platform.
“We’re excited to be helping spread NFT adoption to new types of ecosystems and use cases,” said Elliot Wainmann, Founder of SuperFarm. “Virtue Poker makes for an excellent partner for our recently introduced SuperStarter platform, showcasing its enormous benefits to the SuperFarm community and the high caliber of projects wishing to integrate NFTs in their stack.”
“As we approach a full mainnet release, partnering with SuperFarm for launching NFTs helps immortalize this historic moment for us,” said Ryan Gittleson, Founder and CEO of Virtue Poker. “We believe using Ethereum to create a provably fair and easy-to-access poker platform will be revolutionary for the multi-billion-dollar online poker industry.”
SuperStarter is a decentralized protocol by SuperFarm that allows new and promising projects to conduct private presales and Initial DEX Offerings (IDO), while guaranteeing compliance and security.
The platform offers a complete suite of launchpad tools, including support in fundraising, marketing, development, as well as generalized advisory support.

Its most recent Private Sale held in April 2021 raised $5 million from backers such as DFG Group, Digital Strategies, Flurry Capital and JRR.
