Battle of the Blockchains Yield Yak Reveal — About Relay
Our team is excited to share the third round of details for our upcoming Battle of the Blockchains (BotB) game! In this update, we will reveal our third key launch partner.
BotB will be one of the first cross-chain NFT games where champions from each blockchain will battle for prizes, bragging rights, progress perks, and more! Our first mint will take place on Avalanche, where we’ve created 10,000 unique NFT Champions, coming from some of the most popular and trusted DeFi protocols on-chain. Be sure to follow our ongoing development progress at https://www.relaychain.com/botb
PSA (Public Service Announcement): Choose video games, not war!
Are you a community member who wants to add value to the BotB ecosystem? Fill out this today!
We’d like to reiterate two important items:
- It was Relay community members who initiated the concept of BotB, which is an industry first in this space. We have answered your call. Please help us continue to spread the word!
- BotB will continue to be a community-driven project, with the core Relay team providing crucial industry expertise. This balance will allow the core team to remain focused on Relay’s core Bridging as a Service (BaaS) product in tandem with BotB development.
Key Launch Partner Reveal #3
Here comes a new champion! We are proud to announce that Yield Yak (YAK) will be joining the battle!
We will be generating 2000 NFT champions for YAK, themed around YAK’s mascot. Each YAK NFT Champion is hand-drawn by our talented artists and assigned rarity and ranking features which will play a role in our upcoming BotB game. There are 10,000 total NFTs generated for this first mint — which means community members participating in this minting round have a 20% chance to receive an YAK Champion, per mint.
Reminder: As a key partner, 7% of the total mint proceeds will go towards purchasing $YAK and will be placed in a single sided staking pool (APR at writing = ~20%) for 12–18months. For more information on Treasury Backing check out our Mintenomics.
Note: Infographic is for informational purposes only. While the ratios will stay the same, rarity levels may be subject to change.
Whitelist: We will be running contests right up until the day of the mint where you will have a chance to win a spot on the Whitelist (WL).
What is a WL?
Winning a spot on the WL guarantees you will be able to mint (1) NFT without needing to stress about participating in gas wars. The WL mint will still cost 2 $AVAX, and all unclaimed WL spots will be available to mint during the public mint. So make sure to mint early, as the rest of the NFTs will go fast once the mint is made publicly available.
How do I get on the WL?
The fastest way to get on the WL is to own $Relay. Anyone who owns 5000 $Relay will automatically have their wallet qualified for the WL. Keep an eye out on our Twitter for the exact time/date for the Snapshot!
Additionally, you will have more opportunities through art contests and more on the @botb_game twitter, so stay tuned for more info!

RelayChain enables fast, secure, and low-cost cross-chain token transfers between some of the world’s leading blockchains. The platform offers Bridging as a Service (BaaS) to partner networks and dApps wishing to expand their footprint beyond a single chain. RelayChain currently supports bridges between any combination of Cronos, Harmony, Moonriver, IoTeX, Ethereum, Polygon, Binance Smart Chain, Fantom, Avalanche, Shiden, and HECO. Many additional popular networks will be added in the near future. A unique feature of RelayChain is that once a token exists on our platform, it can be bridged to any other EVM in our list of networks. This is done in a single step, without the need to return to the parent chain first. This technology represents a major evolution in speed and convenience for all our users, and lays a blueprint for the future of web3. The RELAY token holds high utility, as it’s used to reward token stakers with a share of the native gas tokens collected from bridging fees. As a deflationary token, the more transactions that occur, the more RELAY is bought back and burned, continuing to increase the value of remaining token holdings. RelayChain will quickly enable any project’s tokens to be bridged at no cost to the original project.
