The First Play-And-Earn NFT Game
with a Sustainable Economy
The Blue Kraken Online in-game economy is based on real rewards. All income is redistributed to
players, token holders and charity.
A Special Economy Pixel
Play-And-Earn MMORPG.


Our blockchain game features its own crypto token earned by playing. It can be used to upgrade equipment or be traded on the open market.

In most existing web3 games, token rewards are often minted or given out from a treasury without the backup of real money, leading to unsustainable and inflationary economies.

We solve this problem.
Fight - Loot - Craft - Dance!

Money raised from the $BKO governance token sale goes to a foundation that is an independent entity. The foundation fuels the in-game economy by buying $BF and $BKO tokens and uses them for crafting.
Revenue given out as in-game rewards and staking rewards is generated and backed by real expenditure.
The crafting system, as well as sales of in-game content, creates revenue.

All in-game tokens have real value and are never minted out of thin air.

50% of the total supply of $BF in-game tokens are sold in a public sale and the other remaining 50% are locked as liquidity on DEXs. No further $BF tokens are going to be minted, ever.

External influx by a Swiss foundation
100% of all revenue is split among players (89%), $BKO stakers (10%), and charity (1%)
$BF in-game reward tokens are in public hands
Our Solution for Economic Sustainability
Established Play-To-Earn game economies often become very unstable due to an uncontrolled token distribution. This leads to inflation.

Our dual-token ecosystem, with $BKO for governance and $BF as the in-game token, is designed from scratch for maximal sustainability with a paradigm shifting composition of the following aspects.
The price floor (downside limit) is created by allocating 100% of the raised funds from the $BF token sale to a swap pool. Obviously, the price upside is not limited.

We use Uniswap V3 mechanics and concentrate the funds around the final price of the token auction (public sale).


$BKO team tokens are locked from trading with a high vesting cliff (48+ months). After that, they unvest linearly over 20 months.

The $BKO tokens owned by the game development company are locked forever from any trading.
Backing $BF with a price floor is feasible since Uniswap V3
The $BKO team tokens are locked for years. We are here to stay.

The Foundation - it is burning

We are setting up a foundation in Crypto Valley, the city of Zug in Switzerland. The purpose of the foundation is to keep the project healthy and increase its sustainability. The foundation will be funded with capital raised in the $BKO token sales. The foundation will invest its funds into DeFi/CeFi, Bitcoin, Ether and other low risk strategies. Earnings from that will be used directly to enhance and fuel the project's economy, mainly by buying $BF and $BKO on the open market, with the purpose to use them for crafting.


100% of the $BKO tokens used in crafting are burned and 100% of the $BF tokens used in crafting will go back to players, stakers and charity. The items the foundation acquires by crafting will be given out as prizes to players participating in game events (contests).


Heavy Burn: After 4 years the foundation is authorized to spend certain amounts of its base capital to buy and burn higher amounts of $BKO. This compensates for any eventual imbalance between active players and available tokens.

About the game
Open World
Go wherever you want. Follow the story questline - or find your very own path!
Combat & Peace
Fight monsters in action-based (not turn-based!!) combats and level up fighting capabilities or increase the skills in peaceful professions (e.g. dancing). Players are rewarded with $BF tokens for performing these actions.
Novel character classes to choose from
Get $BF and other loot from combat & peace activities. $BF is used to craft more powerful equipment for your character or to upgrade existing gear.
A lot of loot and crafting
Swine-O-Taur, Wolfpack, Timetraveler, Bondage Beard - to name a few. Definitely not the common RPG Warrior/Ranger/Mage triforce.
Main Tokens and NFT Utilities
Our tokens and NFTs have a discrete utility to incentivize players to buy and hold them.
  • $BKO Token Utility

    • Governance

    $BKO holders can vote regularly which new in-game features should be implemented next.

    To name a few: new character classes, balancing, continents, biomes, monsters, and character skins.


    • In-game crafting

    $BKO tokens can be used to increase the success rate when crafting in-game items.


    • Staking rewards

    $BKO staked in game-validator Nodes rewards $BF.

  • $BF Token Utility

    • Reward

    $BF is used as a reward given to players for slaying monsters or pursuing various peaceful professions.


    • Crafting

    $BF can be used in the game's massive on-chain-crafting system to craft for the most valuable and rarest items.


    • Buy in-game objects

    $BF can be spent directly to acquire items of certain categories, e.g. skins and pets.

  • NFT Utility

    • Game Access NFTs

    Define the starting levels for peaceful professions and provide additional perks (e.g. alpha access, mount, higher income, and many more.).


    • Guild NFTs

    Let guilds conquer areas of the gameworld and build an upgradable fortress on designated guild land. $BF rewards of guild members are shared with the guild's treasury.


    • Character NFTs

    Players can mint any of their experienced combat characters as NFTs to sell them on common marketplaces.

Tokenomics


Blue Kraken Online will operate

a dual-token economy.

$BKO is the governance token of the game.

Contrarily to the short vesting cliffs for the Pre-Seed to Public rounds, the team's tokens will have a high vesting cliff of 4 years. After that period, the tokens are released slowly over several months. The length of the lock period for the team is very high, because we want to underline our immense commitment to our ecosystem.
Note: read more about unlocks in the Whitepaper!

Additionally, most of the funds raised in $BKO investment rounds will go to the project's foundation. The foundation is going to support the game's economic health and increase the amount of $BF tokens earnable by players as well as buy and burn $BKO tokens from the open market. $BKO is burned whenever players use them in crafting as well.

$BF (Blue Fuel) is the in-game token.


50% of the token supply will be sold to the public in an auction. The remaining 50% will be supplied as liquidity on DEXs, e.g. Uniswap and others, starting at the final price of the public auction. $BF tokens will not be pre-sold or pre-allocated to anyone.


The sale is planned as a public token auction with a price discovery. 100% of the funds raised in the auction are allocated as liquidity on decentralized exchanges and especially in swap pools with concentrated liquidity mechanics (Uniswap V3), concentrated around the final price of the token auction.


Thereby a price floor (price stop to the downside) for $BF is created at which all tokens from public sale could be sold back to the liquidity pool.
