Dual Token System:
$BCO (“Battle Coin”) & $BXP (“BattleXP/ Battle Experience Points”)

Battle Cards Online will run a Dual Token System to assure economic and functional scalability, flexibility and value-add for all participating parties.

$BCO & $BXP token are Radix based cryptographic utility tokens that can be used on the Radix DLT.
$BCO is the primary in-game currency for trading, and $BXP will be the secondary token for player progression and unlocking in-game features.

$BCO works as Battle Card Online’s platform currency and an independent store of value for users.

DISCLAIMER: The Tokenomics are still (guess…) work in progress. We will not release any Token “into the wild”, before we finalize & announce the final v1.0 of our Tokenomics.

$BCO utility token

$BCO is the fuel to the whole platform. While BCO crowdfunding and marketplace may offer a variety of Radix ecosystem tokens to be used (like of course the native $XRD), all transactions will ultimately be executed using $BCO.
Battles, tournaments, winnings, card- and item trades are done in $BCO and/ or $BXP, depending on the scope of the (trans)action.

All in-game assets are represented in selected currency – FIAT or crypto. However, all the transactions are made exclusively in $BCO or $BXP, depending on the item. This guarantees constant token volume and circulating supply.

Deposits via cryptocurrency or traditional payment methods like a credit card, PayPal, etc. would automatically and transparently be converted to $BCO which are then used to complete the transaction. Referral and Rewards systems use $BCO & $BXP. Wallet users, influencers, social media accounts, blogs, or news outlets will all receive their referral rewards in $BCO, $BXP or a mix of both.

Example: User earnings

One of BCO’s core user experience philosophies is to provide players diverse ways to easily and instantly earn $BCO Token. All user earnings are paid out only in $BCO, $BXP, or a mix of both. 

Examples of opportunities to earn $BCO and/ or $BXP include:

  • Artwork submission
  • Trading NFT cards
  • Participating in battles/ tournaments
  • Hosting tournaments in arenas

Value Stability & Growth Measures

Next to providing a great game and ecosystem, BCO aims to put a particular focus to make $BCO a true store of value for users. To help with this, we aim to execute a range of measures, including but not limited to:

  • Encourage users to stake $BCO for rewards, which will lock up a portion of the circulating supply, reducing selling pressure and supporting token price.
  • Offer discounts or bonuses for using or locking $BCO within the game, incentivizing users to accumulate and use the token, increasing its demand and value.
  • Monitor the Tokenomics and adjust eg staking rewards and referral incentives periodically to maintain price stability and growth.
  • Invest in marketing, partnerships, and collaborations to attract new users and increase the game’s popularity, driving demand for $BCO.
  • Continually expand the game’s content, features, and in-game items, ensuring long-term player engagement and a thriving ecosystem.
  • Implement referral programs to encourage players to invite friends and grow the user base.

BCO aims to combine growth strategies and value stability measures, so the Battle Cards Online project can protect value for early adaptors, while maintaining and growing an active user base and ecosystem.

$BXP utility token

$BXP will start off as an internal utility token, living solely within Battle Cards Online, $BXP gets converted into our universe from earning BattleXP within the BCO universe, and will initally be used to level up the player’s account, cards or items.
Please note that beyond above mentioned core mechanisms, $BXP utility is still under development.
