We ran a World Mobile Token Promo from valentines 2022 until now Valentines 2023. The funds will run out in next epoch 394. We still love the project, and our relationship has been taken to the next level with private and public testnets and gearing up for actual launch of the blockchain to the public. You can still claim many other tokens through vending machine or Tosidrop for delegating to ANP such as Hosky tokens and BabySeal tokens. You can also gain Nunet tokens through the earndrop see https://medium.com/nunet/ntx-liquid-earndrop-with-tosidrop-a1e377732114 as ANP is one of the participating pools. (it is temporary paused but follow the blog for latest news).
Happy new year
2022 was busy in the world of Cardano, such as attending the Cardano Oslo Summit and creating a lot of content for the Cardano ecosystem in regards to research as well as governance.

At nbx.com where we also offer staking for adanorthpool we have written a few articles:
