Here we go with a new edition of our weekly Feature Spotlight. This time we want to discuss the Marketplace for Chain Clash, and what you’ll be able to do there.

The marketplace in Chain Clash is the place where you can stock up on additional avatars, training tickets or you can sell some of your avatars to other players. In the future, there will be more items and things in the game, all of which will be tradable via the marketplace.

Buy basic items / avatars

Training tickets can currently only be used inside Chain Clash (you can use them to boost your training, and soon do some more exciting things), so we decided to not make them actual tokens. You can buy training tickets in larger batches to save money — the more you buy, the more you save ;-) currently, we have batches of 1, 10, 50 or 100 tickets that you can buy at increasing discounts. The final prices and discounts will be determined through our tests, so we won’t publish them upfront.

How you can use training tickets (basically, training!) will be the topic of one of our next Feature Spotlights.

Newly bought basic avatars will be newly minted non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on the EOS blockchain. We support the DGoods standard for our avatar NFTs so they will compatible with a plethora of wallets and tools. All new avatars obviously start at level 1, no training and 0 experience, and they get a default name which you can change once the avatar is yours.

Avatar trading

Sounds too complex? Let’s have an example:
You’re selling “Beastie” and you want no less than 1 EOS for this avatar, but would like to take the upside if someone’s willing to pay more for her. You set the starting price at 11 EOS, and the duration to 240 hours, meaning that the price will be reduced by 1 EOS per day until it reaches 1 EOS.

We’ve chosen this path because we wanted to give players some flexibilities around:
The minimum price they want to achieve for their avatar
An upside on selling
The possibility of selling the avatar immediately (without a 7-day waiting period)
Buyers to immediately get value for their money (no need to wait)

Anybody who has played Cryptokitties will also be familiar with this kind of market mechanic.

Premium avatar auctions

Once the auction has ended, the winner of the auction will be able to claim his avatar immediately.

Note that the auctioned avatars are unique copies of a limited edition avatar. Therefore, we create them before the auction and you know exactly which one you’re bidding for.
