Popular blockchain game Exoplanets is replacing its in-game currency EXT with Guppy tokens (GUP). The news of this comes after the Exoplanets team reached an agreement with the Matchpool foundation, the creator and owner of an Ethereum-based ERC-20 token Guppy.
Swapping EXT for GUP
Starting next month, the Exoplanets team will start replacing its EXTs with GUPs. Because the team wants to ensure that everything will run on order, they'll experiment with GUP for 3 months. If GUP performs, they'll adopt it as its main currency.
During this period, the Matchpool foundation (creator and manager of GUP) will provide 1,050,000 GUP to Exoplanets players. If you play the game, you'll be able to exchange EXT for GUP using this method:
- There'll be a new Withdrawal button in the My planets page, via which you'll be able to exchange EXT for GUP at the rate of 1:1. The minimum withdrawal amount will be 5,000.
- In November, Exoplanets will introduce a tool that allows for even simpler swapping. The tool will also eliminate the minimum withdrawal amount.
- The swapping will last until February 1. When it ends, no more swapping!
You Can Mine GUPs
The Matchpool foundation will also provide a 3,570,000 GUP mining pool for the game. So, instead of mining EXT, you'll mine GUPs. The Exoplanets team will put the EXT mining smart contract on pause until further notice.
During this period Exoplanets will experiment with its mining rounds. Most importantly, players will be able to join the game and mine GUPs without owning an Exoplanet planet.
Mining events will occur in rounds, and there'll be an entry fee of somewhere between 70 and 300 GUP. However, each round will have 1,500 GUPs available for mining. This means that expert miners will be able to exit the rounds with a lot more GUPs that they've spent on the entry fee.
Huge Prizepools Await
Starting November this year, Exoplanets will award the most hard-working miner with 100K GUPs once a week. And if that miner owns an Exoplanet planet, he/she will receive 200K GUPs. The rules and mechanisms for this event will be published soon.
Both Exoplanets and Matchpool hope that their newly found collaboration will be prosperous for them and the players. If the testing period shows that Exoplanets' multiplayer gaming experience perfectly leverages Matchpool's liquidity, then the two will continue to collaborate.
