AnRKey X is dedicated to a level playing field, where users can reap big rewards, regardless of their level of capital. We ensure a fair market by modeling our entire game infrastructure and coding towards this purpose, utilizing various technological and financial components as well as well-tested Financial and Game Theories. This generates a game that is simultaneously fun, rewarding, fair, and transparent, enabling it to truly stand out from the competition and optimally serve its users.
To learn the intricacies we pour into keeping our game equitable but highly competitive, check out the different layers of our fair market infrastructure:
Top Layer: Bitcoin-Like Rewards Randomization
So that everyone has a fair shot at winning big, we randomize the rewards on our platform. Specifically, we preserve pure randomization (via Chainlink VRF) for the distribution of our Golden Chalice NFTs, the ultra-rare annual percentage yield (APY) boosters distributed amongst winners of each weekly game of Battle Wave 2323. We take our inspiration for this from Bitcoin mining, where miners solve cryptographic problems on the block at a specific period of time, with rewards for solving the consensus algorithm being distributed randomly to the miners of the block. The result is a level playing field where Bitcoin miners have thousands of servers running simultaneously, trying to increase their probability of rewards. Similarly, our Golden Chalices are distributed to random wallet addresses within the winning army, determined by the Chainlink VRF Random Number Generator, a decentralized randomization procedure. This prevents users from continuously winning or manipulating/controlling the market by obtaining a significant amount of $ANRX, endlessly stacking NFTs, and exponentially boosting their yield. The market advantage is therefore truly randomized, creating a highly competitive environment where anyone can still win. Thus, we preserve blockchain’s foundational democratic ideals.
Second Layer: Automated Economic Logic Models
Our Automated Economics Models underpin our entire platform, tying together and enforcing our underlying theories. Their purpose is to uphold the spirit of Bitcoin’s foundation of decentralized, self-governing, trustless, fair market economies outside of the corrupted and manipulated practices of centralized banks and governments. We automate the practice of maintaining a fair marketplace at all levels, using our algorithmic parameters to accomplish our rewards randomization, deriving the base value of our NFTs, and balancing inflationary and deflationary forces governing the $ANRX token, so that the token is consistently supported by inflationary forces.
Third Layer: Game and Economics Logic Theories
Evolutionary Game Theory
Over the years, our understanding of gaming has grown exponentially. The more we learn about gaming, the more we learn it is driven by our biology. As popularized by award winning scientist Dr. Richard Dawkins, Evolutionary Game Theory states that gaming behavior is built into our DNA and related to our evolution. Just like life, gaming consists of the survival of the fittest, with the best genetically adapted individuals surviving, prospering, and proliferating. This theory also postulates that the most successful strategies (in games and in life) depend upon the strategies that others are undertaking. We have tied this concept into our game mechanics; blockchain acts as a record of human behavior, and our Battle Wave 2323 layers on this behavior, documenting the evolution of our players and their strategies over time. Battle Wave 2323 further provides its users with opportunities to test out different tactics, adapting along with its players. The result is a measurable demonstration of our players’ evolution. Life and gaming go hand in hand, and we have built a game that enables players to compete and be engaged on a biological level, a true test of their skills.
Automated Fair Market Economics Logic Theory
Our ultimate concern is our players, but too many games are not designed with their players in mind. Many games allow players to be “whales” and dominate each other by taking control of the resources in the game and repetitively winning. Furthermore, in a classic arcade game, your tokens are deposited into the game you want to play and then collected each night by the game staff to enable reuse the next day. To combat these prevalent issues in gaming, we have crafted our Automated Fair Market Economics Logic Theory. This is our unyielding belief that games can and should be designed so that anyone who competes hard can win. We enforce this belief at all levels of our game, ensuring that chances of winning are distributed evenly across all users each week, and that strategy, dedication, and a little good luck together determine success. For instance, On our gDEX, these tokens are deposited directly into our Arcade Treasury, for utilization exclusively as prize winnings for our players – the more you play, the more opportunity you have to win $ANRX back. As our game catalog grows, we are able to maintain our ability to reward users at the same rate, without oversaturating the market or creating unstable token pricing. This is a true scalable economy, and the first of its kind in the DeFi industry. Gone are the days of someone winning every time just because they pay for a premium subscription. Instead, we uphold the foundational ideals of Bitcoin and blockchain by ensuring equal opportunities for everyone to win big.
Foundational Layer: Derived Base Value of our NFTs
All of the non-fungible tokens (NFTs) in our ecosystem have a derived base value, driving the inherent value of the components of the game. Traditionally, NFTs are tokens which represent something intangible, such as an art piece or an achievement in a digital world, and have no base value. In contrast, we achieve something new: providing our NFTs with a base value, thus giving them a real worth in our ecosystem. The method for which we calculated our “derived base value” is based on time and competitive distribution of game prizes’ aggregate value. Using the example of our Collectible NFTs, the value is based on the value of $ANRX that has been given to users in the current game on $ANRX (and in the future, each of the games they correspond to), as well as other related variables such as the time of the game and the $ANRX market value. The result is that the NFTs are structured as a future option on the value of the APY distributed during the game. Thus, our NFTs have a base value, and our users are incentivized to purchase them due to their floating rate value.
