3 min readMay 28, 2022

We are excited to announce the release of our staking system and utilities behind our $ETHX tokens!

Overview

  • Passive Staking Model. (Your NFT must NOT be listed in order to receive $ETHX. If it is listed on a marketplace, you will receive no $ETHX on the days it’s listed).
  • As all $ETHX from Upgrades will be on Polygon, you will never pay to stake, unstake, or to perform utility. It will be 100% free for our holders, you will simply accrue your $ETHX and be able to spend it freely.

ETHX Staking Model

Here’s a diagram of how our passive staking system will work:

  1. Our smart contract will check how many ETHX a wallet holds. It’ll also check to see if these NFTs are on sale on any marketplace, if it’s not listed for sale, you will automatically earn 3 $ETHX tokens per NFT. (As long as you haven’t listed your NFTs for sale, you will automatically earn tokens).
  2. It will add a multiplier of up to 150% according to your NFT Ranking / Rarities.
  • Here are the bi-weekly calculations:
    Base (>10% Rarity): 42 $ETHX
    Rarity (Top 10%): 49 $ETHX
    Rarity (Top 5%): 56 $ETHX
    Rarity (Top 1%): 63 $ETHX
  • It’ll also add a multiplier of:
    +5% for holding 5+ NFTs
    +10% for holding 10+ NFTs

Future Features
A function we’re working on with Chainlink, is a system of extra rewards when you claim your tokens. When you claim, you’ll have a chance of receiving an extra prize using Chainlink’s VRF chance/reward system (verifiable on the blockchain). Prizes may include ETHX NFTs, free NFTs from other collections, Whitelists, free merchandise, expenses paid trips (flights, hotels, packages), gift cards, and more. Rare upgrades will be limited to WL and smaller prizes, while Epic Upgrades can include all prizes.

We’ll also work on a raffle system to giveaway prizes using Chainlink’s Keepers. Once these are implemented, Chainlink will also help with marketing and promotions as well as hold AMAs together.

Marketplace
Here are some things you’ll be able to purchase using $ETHX on our marketplace. It’ll constantly be updated and new items / NFTs will be voted in by our council. Monetary prizes will continuously be funded using our $WRLD from our NFT World’s.
