Ember Sword ranks first this week after a successful migration to the Immutable X chain. The migration process boosted activity on the platform by over 2000%.

Ember Sword moves to Immutable X
Ember Sword has been steadily growing on the Polygon blockchain for months now. After holding a pretty successful land sale on the chain, the team decided to look for new opportunities to grow. And Immutable X was the answer.
Ember Sword announced its Immutable x partnership in November last year, and now the migration process is complete. What remains to be done is for users to transfer their Ember Sword assets to the Immutable X chain.
In an effort to incentivize this process and push the migration along, Ember Sword announced a lucrative rewards program. The team has set aside a 20,000 IMX pool in order to reward the most eager players who migrate their assets. In essence, players will receive 1 IMX for each asset they migrate until the pool runs dry. This is a sweet deal as one IMX token is currently worth $0.96, which means players will be getting close to a dollar for each asset they move to Immutable X.
