The whitepaper is an evolving document and as such there may be information within that is updated or changed throughout development. Last updated 14th October 2021.
Nyan Heroes is an NFT game built on the Solana blockchain, that is part of the ‘play to earn’ metaverse. We believe that blockchain gaming will become the future gold standard for the entire gaming ecosystem, and this represents the disruption of a 200 billion dollar industry.
Our goal, first and foremost, is to deliver a high quality gaming experience that also supports the player centric ecosystem via a robust tokenomic structure. Earning incentives should drive a player's desire to play a certain game, but we firmly believe that it should not be the only incentive.
In Nyan Heroes, players will be able to collect Nyans (Cats) and their Guardian Robots as NFTs. Players will then use their heroes to battle other players in a shooter style action game. By simply playing the game, players will automatically participate in our player based economy by collecting tokens as rewards for completing tasks, winning battles, and progressing in adventure mode. Players will be also able to mint more Nyans, clone their Guardian Robots, collect rare and unique weapons and skins, and trade all of these as NFTs in our marketplace.
Our main cryptocurrency behind Nyan Heroes will be $NYN. This is a multifunctional governance token which will be allocated during private and public sales, with certain proportions set out for the core team, for staking rewards and for the community treasury. There will be a portion of $NYN that can be earned by players as part of playing the game, and $NYN will also be pivotal in performing various marketplace transactions for NFT trades.
Players will also be able to earn our in game utility token $CTNP (Catnip) as they play the game. These tokens will be used in-game to level up characters and weapons, craft items and modify land plots.
As avid gamers ourselves, we are all too familiar with the predatory mechanisms behind many of todays most popular 'free-to-play' games. Every dollar generated by these games goes straight into the pocket of the developer, and players who spend countless hours on the game get nothing in return. Even the assets they buy in these games don't even truly belong to them. The more we consider this working model, the more absurd we feel it is.
We are passionate about creating a fair ecosystem for gamers around the world. We believe players should own their own assets and have full custody over what happens to them. We believe that players should be able to participate in an open marketplace whereby any value they contribute to the ecosystem should be rewarded just like any real world economy.
We have also partnered with various animal charities and will be donating an ongoing portion of our revenue to saving real life Nyans. Because cats make the world a better place! Nyan!
