Development Update #9: Minting
Hello Oly Racers,
We’ve received a lot of feedback from the community on sharing more information. We are committed to providing a weekly development update from now on, so that you can see our development progress.
And here comes a very important announcement regarding the “Mint Feature”. In fact, those who joined in Testnet Phase 1 were given an actual horse, so they couldn’t experience the various feelings when minting their tickets into NFT Horses.
So, we really want to show everyone what the tickets are really about and how good (or bad) your horse(s) can be.
As you’ve already known, so far we have revealed 3 bloodlines: Elon, Zhao, and Sam. But beyond just the Bloodlines, there are 2 other major factors that we can reference: Genotype and Rarity.
The six possible Rarities in which horses are available in Oly Sport include: Legendary, Epic, Super Rare, Rare, Uncommon, and Common. Genotype is also divided into 6 different levels: Genesis, Magical, Lord, Knight, Ideal, and Hero. The NFT horses which were sold in our first and second wave are 100% Genesis and cannot be reproduced in the future.
So, what does the mint feature mean? Is it totally random or systematic? The Oly Sport team had an extremely heated debate and finally, we have come to a conclusion: It will be a random process so no one can influence the quality of the horses. The following statistics will be totally random based on the reference database to produce different results:
- Coat Colour
- GP Index (Genetic Potential)
Among these, GP is like the overall rating of a horse that you need to care about the most: The higher your horse’s GP is, the more chance it has to get good racing results. However, this doesn’t guarantee good results due to other external factors like the terrain, the weather, and the length of the racecourse.
See you again in Development Update #10.
