Three of them are truly passionate about building brand new economies which empower gamers and communities via NFTs.
What is the purpose of Gods Unchained?
Gods Unchained was created to change how games work; using Ethereum technology to bring true digital ownership to players, as well as provide the means to earn items that actually matter.
The GODS token is designed to be the core currency of Gods Unchained, fuelling the ecosystem that empowers players to earn and sell Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs).
- GODs tokens are used within Gods Unchained’s marketplace for in-game purchases, and to create NFTs. Moreover, the tokens are also used as a reward to players.
- Players can start playing Gods Unchained without any initial capital because the game provides 140 cards for new players as the welcome set. Players can unlock more packs and cards by playing the game.
- Staking rewards will be distributed to all users that qualify as being active stakers. These rewards will be distributed from the Staking Rewards Pool, which consists of GODS tokens funnelled in from acquisition actions made in the Gods Unchained store.
- Gods Unchained digital assets run on Immutable X, Ethereum’s first zero-knowledge rollup (zk-rollup) for NFTs. Immutable X allows users to mint NFT gas-free and trade at scale with instant transactions. This creates a massively improved user experience and enables the high volume trading of low cost assets.
- 20.5% of Gods Unchained total’s GODS tokens are set aside as a rewards pool to foster community engagement. The purpose of the pool is to reward activities that add significant value to the game and game economy.
- GODS, like any other crypto game, is contingent upon the size of its user base. With many crypto games coming out, it has to carve out a piece of the market for itself against the plethora of competitors.
- While many users are already playing the game, GODS runs on Immutable X which means that native token support (without additional steps required for users to interact with it) may still be a barrier to entry for the less tech savvy.
