THE THRIVING ARTIST INITIATIVE

Block Duelers is looking for artists and other NFT projects to help us create characters and items that will be minted, battled and traded on our platform. We have created this opportunity to aid in their monetization by using Cryptocurrency, DeFi, NFTs and profitable gamification.

The following is a basic breakdown of the multiple leveled first tier of our “Sponsored Creations”. Sponsored Creations will maximize profits and create massive marketing potential to help monetization through NFTs.

If you or anyone you know might be interested in this opportunity, please contact me at GARRETT@BLOCKDUELERS.IO with examples of work you’ve done, your Twitter and LinkedIn (if you have them).

If you are an existing project or influencer interested as well, please reach out to us!

TOKENOMICS RESTRUCTURE

Please take note that this is a current strategy under development and will take some fine-tuning to be exactly where we want it. We have not set any percentages in stone in regards to the following tokenomics or fee structures!

To control DC supply, a monthly varying percentage of all DC and BDT accumulated from the Block Duelers platform will be evenly airdropped to the community depending on levels of platform usage.

The leftover DC will be BURNED!

EXAMPLE:
If 1,000,000 DC is spent on the platform in one month, we will decide on a varying percentage of 25% for that month. This means that we would airdrop 250,000 DC in rewards to platform users and burn the remaining 750,000 DC.

An additional varying percentage of the BDT and DC will be put into our Block Duelers War-chest, which will be used for future BDT buybacks using the accumulated DC.

All accumulated BDT from the platform (including from the BDT buybacks) will be airdropped to the community for completing special tasks, challenges, competitions, and special events.

The following is a breakdown of the percentages of accumulated DC and BDT that will be airdropped monthly.

LEAGUE OF DUELERS TIER LEVELS (LOD REWARDS)

200 BDT or 1,200 BSC LP or 25 ETH LP

EXAMPLE OF REWARDS

1.) Bob has 17 BDT STAKED and has access to the DUELER TIER of the “League Of Duelers”!
2.) Bob gets 7% of the monthly varying percentage of BDT and DC accumulated from the Block Duelers platform for being in the DUELER TIER!
3.) Bob ALSO gets 10% of the monthly varying percentage of BDT and DC accumulated from the Block Duelers platform “NON-LOD REWARDS” for being a STAKER!
4.) Bob can ALSO earn more BDT and DC by using the platform and dueling!

BASIC CONSERVATIVE REWARD EXAMPLE
1,000,000 DC/month airdrop, assuming 400 NFTs a month are sold from loot-boxes at 2,500 DC per NFT

MYTHIC TIER 20%: 200,000 DC
EPIC TIER 20%: 200,000 DC
LEGENDARY TIER 16%: 160,000 DC
ELITE TIER 12%: 120,000 DC
DUELER TIER 7%: 70,000 DC
AMATEUR TIER 4% : 40,000 DC

GAME GRIND TIER 15%: 150,000 DC

1.) If Bob splits the DUELER TIER DC with 49 other people, he gets 1,400 DC.
2.) If Bob splits the GAME GRIND TIER DC with 149 other people, he gets 1,000 DC.
3.) If Bob splits the LUV2STAKE TIER DC with 499 other people, he gets 200 DC.

If Bob is staking 17 BDT, he will receive 5,712 DC every 28 days. On top of that, he also received 2,600 DC from the tiered reward system for a total of 8,312 DC.

Bob can now use that extra 8,312 DC to buy and stake more BDT and then duel his way to the ELITE TIER!

BASIC MODERATE REWARD EXAMPLE
3,000,000 DC/month airdrop, assuming 1,200 NFTs a month are sold from loot-boxes at 2,500 DC per NFT

MYTHIC TIER 24%: 600,000 DC
EPIC TIER 21%: 600,000 DC
LEGENDARY TIER 17%: 480,000 DC
ELITE TIER 12%: 360,000 DC
DUELER TIER 7%: 210,000 DC
AMATEUR TIER 4% : 120,000 DC

With the same split between people, Bob will accumulate 13,512 DC per month, staking rewards included.

LIBERAL REWARD EXAMPLE
5,000,000 DC/month airdrop, assuming 2,000 NFTs a month are sold from loot-boxes at 2,500 DC per NFT

MYTHIC TIER 20%: 1,000,000 DC
EPIC TIER 20%: 1,000,000 DC
LEGENDARY TIER 17%: 800,000 DC
ELITE TIER 12%: 600,000 DC
DUELER TIER 7%: 350,000 DC
AMATEUR TIER 4% : 200,000 DC

With the same split between people, Bob will accumulate 18,712 DC per month, staking rewards included.

DC STAKING REWARDS AND FEE STRUCTURE

We have TRIPLED the DC rewards for BDT staking from 4 DC a day per BDT, to 12 DC a day per BDT. LP staking provides about 25% more DC per day, per BDT. We also made each duel cheaper from 5 DC to 2 DC, now you can play 6 games by staking 1 BDT per day!

Cost per duel: 2 DC
Lootbox NFT: 2500 DC

The following fee structure will help supply the BDT reward system. To make everyone feel a bit more comfortable about the fee changes, we will use 150 of our marketing BDT ($30,000 current value) as a reward bonus for the first 6 months.

Please remember, this is a current strategy under development and will take some fine-tuning to be exactly where we want it. We have not set any percentages in stone in regards to the following tokenomics or fee structures!

ETH STAKE FEE:
4% BDT
2% LP

BSC UNSTAKE FEE:
4% BDT
2% LP

The goal of this system is to create passive income by rewarding stakers and game grinders with the tools (BDT and DC) they need to collect, duel, upgrade and trade NFTs from their favorite projects, all in one platform.

The age of play to earn has finally come to crypto!

See you on the dueling grounds!
