Bold Point — Token Utilization, Gaming Mechanics, and GameCore Protocol
Ancient lands filled with magic and dangerous creatures are awaiting players. Do you have the stomach to adventure, explore, and battle your way through perils and become the boldest among players? If so, then this article is for you.
We are delighted to share some of the next development updates for Bold Point, namely an in-depth overview of gaming mechanics and in-game use cases of the $BPT token. Everything from the battle system, guilds, mining mechanics, farming, and in-game assets will be explained.
Additionally, we’ll also be introducing our novel GameCore protocol. Developed by Bold Point labs, GameCore is a software as a service (SaaS) that enables game developers to easily integrate blockchain technology and GameFi mechanics into titles.
Learning about Bold Point before its release is an excellent way to gain a head start and master the game before other players. Be it from a gamer or investor perspective, and everyone can benefit
from reading the information presented below.
Guilds and Investors
Guilds will be a large component of the Bold Point experience. Players will be able to group together and assemble their own guilds. In doing so, guild members gain privileges such as access to unique quests that award players with temporary ownership of certain regions of the map.
Guilds will gain ownership over the assets and resources of conquered regions. The player profile will indicate which Guild the player belongs to, alongside other information such as in-game achievements and record of assets.
Regions and buildings will be introduced in the latter stages of Bold Point. Each building/region will be unique and represented by a non-fungible token (NFT).
By purchasing a building in the marketplace, users will turn into “investors” and will be able to create new events or upgrade the dungeons within the buildings. Receiving player votes for new events or investing in the development of dungeons will increase the bottom line for the building owner.
Regions, on the other hand, are the large areas of the map where the buildings are located in. While buildings can be purchased by players, ownership of regions is temporary and exclusive to guilds. The competition for regions will be fierce, as guilds must go to great lengths to rent a specific region.
Regions also include certain modifiers that change and spice up the gameplay. Battles on darker regions of the map, for example, will penalize ranged units and multiply the attack of melee units. Guilds will benefit from regions, with the rewards being distributed among the members of the guild.
Battles, PVE Arena, and skirmishes
Currently, the Player versus Environment (PvE) mode has players facing a total of 20 waves of enemies. Players will need to purchase units with coins and deploy them strategically on the battlefield. With each subsequent wave, the enemy army becomes stronger and harder to beat.
Before players can venture into battle they must ensure their armies have sufficient energy reserves, which can be replenished by using jars of energy or by waiting a few hours.
Players may also consume different mana and HP jars to help them rebuild their armies in combat, ensuring their armies are ready for the upcoming waves. These jars will be available inside chests, which will be available in the marketplace. Moreover, using potions will add an extra % APR in rewards for players.
Upon successfully killing a wave of enemies, players will be rewarded with new coins that can be used to purchase new units and upgrade their armies. Victorious players will also be rewarded with points that contribute to higher APR returns on the $BPT farming pool.
Farming and token use cases
Apart from the classic use of tokens such as buying consumables, in-game items, buildings, characters, and profiles, a BPT/AVAX farming pool will be available in-game, making it easy to stake and earn passive rewards from $BPT. The farm will reward players in proportion to the number of points players gathered on the battlefield.
Beyond $BPT farming, it’s also important to mention that the $YAY token plays a fundamental role in Bold Point’s economy. Players who gather in guilds will be able to complete special quests and tasks using the YAY token, after which the next level will become available to guilds — regions rent voting, which also uses the YAY token as DAO core.
Introducing the GameCore Protocol
GameCore is the first GameFi protocol of its kind on the Avalanche blockchain. Developed as open-source software, GameCore features a set of proprietary and thoroughly audited smart contracts that enable the standardization of game development on Avalanche.
Following numerous requests from our partners, we decided to make the GameCore public. Game developers can now use our software to easily integrate blockchain technology into their titles, enabling the inclusion of NFTs, in-game cryptocurrencies, and the play-to-earn model.
Furthermore, GameCore is versatile enough to support updates throughout the lifecycle of a game, meaning that functionalities can be added progressively. Several DeFi mechanics such as staking, lending, or even community governance through a DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) can all be incorporated thanks to GameCore.
