XPLA Reveals Tokenomics Features of The Walking Dead: All-Stars
The Walking Dead: All-Stars includes the following tokenomics features: ad-revenue sharing system, buyback & reward, and 3 core currencies that are needed for obtaining in-game tokens that can be converted to $XPLA.
What Are the Core Tokenomics Features?
In an official dedicated post for tokenomics, the developers have listed these core features forming the model: ad-revenue sharing system, buyback & reward, and core currencies.
Ad-Revenue Sharing System
The tokenomics structure involves the incorporation of an ad-revenue sharing system that makes it possible to bring back a share of the revenue gained from ads back to the players. This means that both a percentage of revenue from ads and in-game purchases are sent to the Convert Pool, which is what makes it possible for players to exchange Unknown Coins to $XPLA, and vice-versa. According to the announcement, the advertising rates will vary from one country to another.
Buyback & Reward
As suggested by the info on the system above, the $XPLA tokens awarded to players comes from the ad revenue. In order to try and maintain stability, up to 85% of the ad revenue will be designated for buying back the tokens from the market, making it so that the team will “consistently purchase $XPLA,” encouraging a “virtuous tokenomics cycle that rewards gamers for their time and dedication to the game.”
The mobile blockchain title consists of 3 core currencies that you need in order to get Unknown Coins: Key Point, Key, and Safe.
Key Points are gained from watching ads as well as from buying certain in-game items, while Keys are crafted using Key Points. Keys come in Normal, Premium, and Deluxe types, and you’ll be needing them for unlocking Safes, which also come in 3 types: Normal, Premium, and Best. Safes contain various items, potentially including in-game Survival items, higher-grade keys, Unknown Coins, and more. Unknown Coins are in-game tokens which can be converted to $XPLA, but they can also be used for purchasing special items from the shop.
