What is the purpose of Vulcan Forged?
Vulcan Forged was created for multiple purposes–to serve as a platform where different games can exist while using the same utility token to exchange assets, and as a marketplace for people to buy, sell, and trade NFTs.
Its utility coin, PYR, is built to be compatible with ERC-20 and Polygon/MATIC. This allows the users to exchange assets with little to no gas fees.
Vulcan Forged, upon partnering with Polygon/Matic, has become a cross-chain platform with no gas fee, since Matic is built on layer 2 of Ethereum that is designed specifically to avoid the high transaction fee and low speed. As opposed to most cryptocurrencies that can be mined by other people in every transaction, Vulcan forged is a utility token that can only be used inside the ecosystem of game titles designed and supported by the Vulcan Forged team.
- PYR tokens are used across the Vulcan Forged games, like Vulcan Verse and Coddle Cats for in-game purchases and NFT marketplace.
- Vulcan Forged can’t be mined because it’s unique in the sense that it can be exchanged with other currencies, mainly Ethereum and Polygon/Matic, but its main use is within the Vulcan Forged ecosystem.
- Vulcan Forged has a secondary token called LAVA. It works similarly to PYR, but it is acquired mainly through rewards.
- Like many other NFT games and cryptocurrency transactions, the investors must keep in mind that doing prior research about the platform is essential since there is a chance that they will lose their capital.
- Investors should first learn and understand Polygon/Matic, being a partner network, will have to be understood separately by investors interested in before getting into the Vulcan Forged platform. It’s a barrier of entry for people who are less tech savvy when it comes to understanding the nature of layer 2 cryptocurrency platforms.
