  13. Deep Rock Galactic is a cooperative, squad-based first-person shooter similar to games like Warhammer: Vermintide and Left 4 Dead. Read my full review on Coil: https://coil.com/p/macropolo/Deep-Rock-Galactic-Review-/ElPOMyD71
  14. It's a key feature for any cryptocurrency including XRP. Imagine going to the coffee shop and the employee can track the transaction back to your bank and see how much money you have in your checking account.
