How Can I Upgrade My SOUL?
You can upgrade your SOUL Token by participating in live events, connecting with new people, and contributing to the ecosystem. The more people you meet, and the more engaged you become, the more the level of your token increases. 

However, if you are inactive for a prolonged period of time, your SOUL’s Level diminishes. This dynamic process promotes active community involvement and drives meaningful engagement within the ecosystem.
