Gaming — Taco Universe

Taco Universe is our gaming platform, which it’s a game itself and contains other fun games inside!

Taco Universe is composed by Venues, Extractors, Collectors NFTs and a fully functional Android and iOS Testflight App. With those NFTs you can collect the tokens needed in all our games. You can also trade those tokens on our coin swap.

The main part of Taco Universe are the actual games: Combz, Acryptia and Brigade, they allow you to have fun and compete for exclusive NFTs!

ℹ️ A new game is coming! Monster Rooms is our first cross-chain game. Stay updated, as when the game will launch, you want to be among to first to enter!

Venue NFTs

Venues are Taco Universe’s “lands” and key interfaces to all the Taco gaming. These are upgradable and customizable NFTs that:

  • Passive Earn SHING tokens
  • Generate ONI tokens
  • Passive Earn TacoG, our governance token
  • Unlock Brigade P2E
  • Unlock Acryptia Dungeon Card Game
  • Unlock Combz Sponsorship
  • Turn 200,000 SHING into a Taco Ingredient

Every Venue has a type directly linked to one or more Ingredients NFT that can be crafted from burning SHING tokens within it. They can be used to upgrade Venues but they can also be redeemed for Taco tokens. Go get Venues!

Get a piece of the Taco Universe for yourself by owning a Venue

Extractor NFTs

Extractors are the best passive earn NFTs in the Taco Universe. They earn you SHING tokens just by holding them. SHING accrues automatically, ready to be withdrawn to your wallet whenever you claim. There is no ‘maximum’ claim. As you will see in the Tokenomics section, SHING is the main currency of the The Taco Universe. You will need them so, go get Extractors!

Collector NFTs

Collectors are the only way to accumulate and earn ONI tokens. ONI is the strategic token of the Taco Universe and is needed to access Acryptia Season Pass, to boost productions in Combz and access Brigade expansions, and for Venues and Extractors future purposes. There are only two ways of gaining ONI: stake in the TACO/SHING fixed pool or own Venues. Generated ONI will go into Collectors, from which you will be able to claim. Go get Collectors!

Games
