Meet the TycoonsThe Tycoons are 4 canonical characters of pretty much every startup out there. A hacker codes stuff, a hustler makes sure that’s something the market wants, an engineer does the hardcore programming and hardware tweaks and, finally, an insider makes sure the company has every edge it needs over the competition.To summarize the gameplay you can mine tokens, trade them and spend to buy components/rigs. You can research components and sell your setups/parts. You can develop the blueprints and sell them or sell entire rigs based off your blueprints. You can abuse the news and always be ahead of the market. You can sabotage clusters, corps and alliances (black hat hacker), or you can do the reverse (white hat hacker). You can build an empire and you can stay in the shadows. And then you can mix all of that (yeah, right!).
It’s going to be a massive blockchain simulation that looks and, more importantly, works just like one.Since the game is decentralized (and in the absence of Game Master any client can take over that role with a few restrictions applied) we don’t really have a game server. However, we have client-server relations because a Node sends it’s game state to the Game Master and vice versa the Game Master provides feedback to the Node. We’ve developed our very own protocol on top of UDP to provide such effective communication (Barracuda Protocol).
Barracuda ProtocolSo why it’s an [Anti-] ICO?Well, for starters we are running a crowdfunding with ETH and that’s all there is about it. The [CTY] tokens you get and just the proof you funded with the certain amount of ETH. We will exchange [CTY] only to in-game rewards, in-game content and in-game currency. [CTY] will not be listed on any exchange. [CTY] will not be traded on any exchange. It’s a useless token with the only purpose to provide proof of sent funds once the Crowdsale ended.
Why do you even need the Crowdsale?We want to deliver an exceptional game and exceptional experience, design great graphics, code blazing fast network protocols and don’t trade the game quality in the process. Frankly, that needs funding we just don’t have. A high level list of our stretch goals looks like this:
More Tycoons! Full 3D with better graphics Massive Multiplayer Online RTS gameplay tweaks (rig attack and defence) Blueprints and Inventions
There will be a Reddit post (and a “reply” here) outlining our future plans once the funding total can be at least roughly estimated. There are lots of ideas, but we want to keep it real.
Ok, so a Crowdsale, huh. What kind of rewards you have then?We offer two types of rewards for CryptoTycoon Crowdsale participants:
Smart Rewards Milestone Rewards
Smart RewardsSmart Reward apply to all Crowdsale participants. This reward is based on the amount of ETH funded (amount of CTY received). Once you take part in CryptoTycoon Crowdsale, you immediately become eligible to be awarded in-game currency and in-game content via Smart Reward.The actual amount of in-game currency and the type of in-game content that you are going to receive is calculated upon the Crowdsale completion. Your Smart Reward is determined based on these parameters:
Amount of ETH funded (amount of CTY received) Date you joined the Crowdsale How many funders gave more than you How many funders gave less than you
In short, the more you fund and the ealier you join, the better Smart Reward will be applied. On the contrary, the later you join and the less you fund, the less exciting Smart Reward you will be given.This system is in place to ensure our funders are rewarded fairly for the amount they contribute and the commitment they provide.
Milestone RewardsMilestone Reward is given to any CryptoTycoon Crowdsale participant. In order to be eligible to receive a Milestone Reward, you just have to fund a specific amount of ETH or above.The funded amount is rounded down to the closest Milestone Reward. For e.g. if you funded 0.3 ETH, you will receive the Milestone Reward for 0.2 ETH. If you funded 0.9 ETH, you will receive the Milestone Reward for 0.5 ETH.Keep track of this list here, as we will surely add more Milestone Rewards higher up and in-between.
With all that put down, we welcome you to join the Early Crowd.Early participation in our Crowdsale provides an exchange rate of 1 ETH = 12 CTY (20% discount). Early Crowd runs through Dec 10 to Jan 10, 2019. Then we commence the Main Crowd that will run through Jan 10, 2019 to Mar 20, 2019. Starting and ending datetimes are treated in epoch time (UTC 00:00).Bring your community voice and let’s build this game together!
