The news about The Squid Game, the South Korean series that exploded in Netflix, continue to abound in social networks. A couple of hours ago we announced the news that there was a network game, with the same plot, but that it was not official and used cryptocurrencies to access a virtual dispute without actual deaths.

In this version of The Squid Game participants had to acquire cryptocurrencies Squid calls to access the different games and earn virtual coins as they progressed through the round, similar to what happened in the fiction of Netflix.
