Introducing: Dev Talk
If there is one thing everyone can agree on, it’s that more communication is a good thing. The entire idea behind Beta testing is gathering feedback from users, getting it to the dev team, and waiting to see what they come up with.
But why wait and wonder? Why not get a better understanding of what Devs are up to and the thinking behind the changes in real time?
We couldn’t find a reason, so we launched a new blog series called Dev Talk — a periodic PFL Dev drop-in chat that aims to give players a better idea of how, and why, the sausage is made.
If you missed the first blog in the Dev Talk series that featured Principal Developer Christopher Vance, give it a read.
Mike Sowers Chats PFL with TrueDFS
Our very own community member and professional poker player Mike Sowers, aka Tombstone Stables, joined the TrueDFS show to walk host Eric Haber through what PFL is and why IRL horse racing fans should take notice.
Sowers did an excellent job taking Haber all the way through the process of converting USDC to Solana, creating a stable, buying a Gen0 ticket, and navigating the PFL site.
If you find yourself having trouble at times explaining what PFL is all about and how people can get involved, this is an excellent watch full of vital details. Give it a watch!

Beta 3: Week 2
Real money Beta 3 made its triumphant debut at PFL last week, leveling up the field of play as more stables joined the racing fray, the ante grew, and stable owners were introduced to the true identity of the horses attached to their Gen0 tickets.
After just a few short days, the PFL team has already utilized community feedback to further improve the product and will continue to do so before a full live launch.
With a new week upon us, head on over to the racing page to enter your horse in a real money race.
