It has been a long time coming, ever since breadcrumbs went the way of the dodo bird. players have been asking, "what do we earn for battling in the arena?"
Well 1st off you have to battle in the Arena to unlock your 2nd & 3rd Hero slots.
Today we managed to get the 1st version of our new Reward Bot up and running.
Here is what you will see on your posts.
Now I know you have many questions. I will answer a few here.
1) Will it only upvote posts? what about comments? I don't post and I don't want to.
A: Currently we only upvote posts. However we are working on having the Reward Bot upvote comments only on the Holybread account. Our goal is to NOT spam the blockchain with upvotes on comments. Instead we will do a weekly LEADERBOARD post talking about players climbing / falling etc...
If you comment on that post you will receive your upvote.
2) The Holybread account doesn't have much voting power. Why should I bother? What is your plan to increase this?
A: I still have 1500 Hive worth of SP that I am powering down. This will be added to the Holybread account. We want it to be as large as you do!
We will never power down any HP the account earns. Also we are going to take a % of the earnings from any EVENTS we run to power it up.
We are still working on the exact amount but our goal is to have 50K upvote power ASAP.
3) Why this type of reward? Why not a token on Hive-Engine(HE)?
A: We feel this type of reward is more in-line with the Hive Blockchain and rewards players with tangible HP/HBD that they can do what they want with. We also don't like the % HE takes from moving Hive in/out. We feel this is a tax on our players for no reason.
We have other things in the works on this topic but can't talk about them right now.
4)Is this the only reward?Why am I even battling?
A: Currently this is our only out-game reward. Or as we call it a Layer 1 reward. We are working on additional in-game rewards.
5) How can I see what my pending Upvote is? How big is an upvote for my rank?
A: We are monitoring the Reward Bot / Voting power / etc... We plan on making sure we don't have to adjust the math before revealing any of this.
So our roadmap for the reward bot is to add additional functionality,
- upvote comments on Holybread posts
- allow players to run the LEADERBOARD API and see what rank they are
- allow players to see pending upvote
- other things we can think of
As some of you may have read. We are aggressively working on the SEASON 1 server and it will have its own Reward Bot's. So you can play the Main Holybread world & the Season world, if you are high enough you can earn Upvote rewards on each world.
I hope this makes you all as excited as us.
As always "SMASH" the upvote to help fund the Reward Bot (all rewards from this post will go to it)
TIP Holybread.io in Brave Browser to help fund development!
Let us know what you think in the comments. All comments will be upvoted by the @simplegame account approaching close to 3K HP.
