Nine Chronicles Gold (NCG) is the main in-game currency and governance token used in the Nine Chronicles network. The supply is limited by design, and players can spend NCG to craft powerful items, trade with other users, challenge each other, and grow. It also powers the world's governance and ecosystem programs.
What is Nine Chronicles?
Nine Chronicles is an open source, decentralized RPG set in a fantasy world — powered by its players, and supported by a complex economy where supply and demand are the greatest currency.
Why it is 100% decentralized? Is it important? We want to create a whole new fantasy world that doesn't depend on the game company — an online world that can exist as long as there are players, and a world that is fully owned by the community. That's why we made Nine Chronicles 100% fully decentralized. Every action will be saved on-chain so that you can verify the whole world's status by yourself. To achieve this mission, we've built Libplanet, a new distributed ledger technology library for implementing P2P MMO games. Nine Chronicles is the first game based on Libplanet.
Nine Chronicles Mainnet
Nine Chronicles became the world’s first fully decentralized online RPG when we launched the mainnet in October 2020. This year we’ve witnessed dramatic user growth, growing 20% per week (850% growth in Q2) past few months after our play-to-earn portal launch.
10000+ NCG holders
2000+ Full nodes powering the network daily
2,500,000+ Battles processed on-chain
500,000+ NFTs crafted by players
80,000+ NFTs traded on in-house decentralized marketplace
Economics and NCG Usage
Nine Chronicles Gold (NCG) is the base token used in the Nine Chronicles network. Players can spend NCG to craft powerful items, trade with other users, challenge each other, and accelerate growth, while also participating in governance and staking.
As a free-to-play game, NCG isn't necessary in the beginning stages of exploration, but the game is designed so that NCG's needs are gradually increased as players grow more powerful. Eventually, players can stake NCG to earn potions and unique items which can be used by them or circulated to other users for profit.
Accelerating Growth: Each action created by a user is capped by an energy gauge which refills every 8 hours. To refill energy faster, players may purchase energy potions from the public market. Crafting item also takes a set amount time, which can be accelerated by purchasing hourglasses from the market.
Crafting Items: NCG is not required to craft equipments with fewer than two materials, but NCG must be used to craft 3+ material combination. The cost is currently (combined material-2) ✕ 10 NCG, and can be adjusted through the community consensus.
Trading Items: NCG is used to sell or purchase items from the public market. Any player can list items on the market, and get paid when another player makes a purchase. There is a set % fee for trading items on the market, and the fee is currently locked. There is a plan to circulate the fee back to NCG holders.
Challenging Players: Players pay entrance fee in NCG to enter a battle arena to challenge other players. The pool created from the entrance fee is split among the winners each week.
Earning Tradeable In-Game Reward: Staking the main token for periodic in-game reward is a key feature of Nine Chronicles. Instead of purchasing items off the market, players can stake their token and receive energy potions, hourglasses, and other exclusive consumables periodically. This effectively reduces the surplus supply of NCG and gives the players a share of the pie by allowing them to create in-game items that can be sold.
Nine Chronicles Activation Key
Nine Chronicles Activation Key is a token that players need to activate their account. You can activate your own account or activate another user's account by using this key. The Activation Key will not be sold for a fee, but will be distributed to active players. In the future, we plan to gradually increase the distribution of keys by working with various partners.
For the reference, tokens of NCG in circulation have the potential to be bridged to WNCG at any given time. Consequently, the overall token quantity specified in the whitepaper comprises the collective sum of both WNCG and NCG tokens. The data shown on Etherscan for the maximum supply of WNCG corresponds to the cumulative quantity of tokens that are presently bridged. Hence, the maximum supply of WNCG displayed on Etherscan is a flexible segment that could expand at any time, possibly equating to the total supply as delineated in the whitepaper.
