“The Crabada Idle-Game is available on Swimmer testnet for our community to try out and get their toes wet! #snibsnib 🦀✨
Are you ready Swimmers? Let’s Dive In! 🏊♂️
A total of 80K Crabada have been minted on Swimmer testnet. Each wallet that sends in a request for Crabada will be airdropped 9 Crabada to begin testing with!
They will be taking this opportunity to identify any issues, gather valuable feedback, and rectify them before the big Swimmer mainnet launch! They are constantly looking to improve the user-experience of Swimmer Network.
As a gaming blockchain, Swimmer Network aims to promote accessibility and enjoyment to the masses, working toward a fuss-free onboarding and gaming experience.
Here’s a recap on some things to look forward to on Swimmer Network!
1. Crabs are Mining for Gas
Crabada will be the first game on the Swimmer Network. Its game reward token, $TUS, will be used as the gas token for Swimmer Network!
With the migration of Crabada to the Swimmer Network, they are targeting a ~85% reduction in operational costs for players. In addition, a percentage of network fees will be burnt. This is planned to be scaled up to ~80% as the network grows.
2. Fee-Cover Model
One key innovation of the Swimmer Network is the Fee-Cover Model.
This feature reduces onboarding friction by supporting players to play games without having to acquire gas tokens in the first place.
On-ramping crypto assets directly into Swimmer Network via in-app purchases to acquire NFTs, and interact with the game contract without having to bridge assets to Swimmer Network.
Games that launch on the Swimmer Network will have the ability to subsidize/spend gas on behalf of their players. This feature can be configured on/off at the discretion of the game maker.
This opens up many possibilities for a smooth onboarding experience.
3. Ecosystem Grants
1.25M $CRA has been set aside for 2022 as a part of Ecosystem Grants!
“Games and Community Developers can submit their proposals through links on our website. Come Swim with us!
4. Validators for the Swimmer Network
Validators are required to run an Avalanche Node, and stake 50,000 CRA for the duration of the validation period. Each validation period will last 1 month. This will be done via a deposit to the time-locked Validator contract on the C-chain.
In v1, Swimmer Network targets 10 validators in it’s initial validator set. More validators will be introduced gradually over time.
More details on how $CRA stake for validators work:
