HOW TO ENTER PROMOTION: No purchase is necessary. Participating Parties may enter the Promotion by creating an account and participating in the Game and achieving a high score over a thirty (30) day period. Participants can play the game as many times as they wish to achieve a high score. To create an account, a participant must sign up via the Starlist portal found on the Space Mermaids Website.

The Game, as developed and provided by Space Mermaids is free to play. However, to fully engage with certain features of the Game, including claiming an NFT, you will need to connect a XUMM wallet to the Game. XUMM wallets require an activation fee of ten (10) XRP. You can still play the Game and your scores will be recorded by Space Mermaids even with a deactivated wallet. However, to claim a Space mermaid if you win, your XUMM wallet needs to be activated.
To support participants, Space Mermaids will send ten (10) XRP to newly created XUMM wallets that place a high score, up to a total of 500 wallets or a maximum of $5 per new wallet ($2500 total) during the duration of the contest. This is to enable you to mint your NFT without the need to purchase XRP. This offer is limited to the activation of newly created XUMM wallets and is subject to the total dollar value limit set by Space Mermaids. Space Mermaids reserves the right to verify the eligibility of players and wallets for this offer.
