Arc8 for Players
Arc8 is a mobile gaming platform designed around friendly competitive gameplay. Players are gradually introduced in a gamified way to web3 concepts (such as wallets, tokens, and NFTs) via a more familiar web2 experience.
All Arc8 accounts come with an in-built custodial wallet. This is where new tokens that players win in Lucky Events are stored.
This feature allows players that are not knowledgeable about web3 to still earn tokens, which increases their interest and sparks their curiosity about web3 gaming. It also acts as an encouragement for them to open their own personal wallet so that they may withdraw their tokens.
Players are rewarded for their skill and time spent playing in the form of visual progress of a “character”, the appearance of which will soon be revealed. Its properties and appearance evolve as the player progresses on the platform.
After some time, the character can be minted as an NFT that has specific utility within the later stages of the platform and unlocks new features for its owner.
In Lucky Events, players invest their Luck (earned from playing) in a draw to earn from token and NFT prize pools. The more one puts in, the higher the chances of winning. These prize pools may include GMEE and/or partner tokens and NFTs. Rewards are sent to the winning players’ custodial Arc8 wallets. Collecting partner tokens via a web2 event gives players the opportunity to own their first cryptocurrency or NFT. It also incentivizes the discovery of other web3 games and projects where the tokens and NFTs may be used.
There are multiple uses for Arc8’s native GMEE currency:
- While many items in Arc8 are earned and some can be obtained with in-app purchases, limited in-game items are available only for GMEE.
- Minting the “character” from its web2 state to an NFT is payable only in GMEE (feature coming Q3 2023).
- Entry to the web3 Arc8 League is only possible with GMEE, which is used to purchase the Arc8 League Pass.
The Arc8 League is a unique league for web3-savvy users who want to take their gaming to the next level.
It is accessible via a special NFT pass (the Arc8 League Pass), purchasable only with GMEE tokens. The Arc8 League pass gives its owner access to the competitive part of the app, with large prize pools, blue chip NFTs, partner-sponsored tokens, and stablecoins.
The inaugural Arc8 League is Arc8 League Season 0, from July 11 to August 11, 2023. The prize pool for this is valued at $18,000 USD and consists of:
- $3,000 worth of 20x NFTs by BoomLand
