Why is CryptoPunt carrying out a dual listing and launch?
CryptoPunt is carrying out its listings and mainnet launch on the same date, providing PUN token holders with immediate utility as they will be able to access the platform instantly after acquiring their tokens. Token holders will be instantly able to use their tokens within the CryptoPunt platform. The PUN tokens will be required to access the various games offered within the platform and they will also allow holders to tap into earning opportunities such as staking and rewards campaigns.
What will CryptoPunt initially release?
CryptoPunt will launch with a selection of three extremely popular blockchain-based gambling options. Each game will be provably fair as the algorithm underpinning each game is open-source and auditable by the community. The initial gaming releases will be Blackjack, Coinflip, and Jackpot. These decentralized gambling options will provide CryptoPunt users with opportunities to level up their crypto holdings. As the platform evolves, CryptoPunt will build and launch gaming options outside of the gambling niche.
What does the future hold for CryptoPunt?
In the future, CryptoPunt intends to create more immersive gaming environments where users can participate in virtual reality type worlds and acquire in-game assets. We are currently researching the feasibility of implementing such environments into the CryptoPunt gaming platform.
What are the CryptoPunt tokenomics?
A significant percentage of the CryptoPunt token supply has been allocated to setting up the project for success. 50 million of the total 160 million PUN supply was dedicated to early-stage sales which onboarded key strategic partners. Longstanding venture capital companies such as VYSYN Ventures, Chain Ridge Capital, and Insignius Capital were early-stage investors in the project and committed to providing long-term support to the project. These partners helped in critical areas such as development and marketing. Other tokens are dedicated to areas such as the establishment of bounty programs which will contribute to the future development and success of CryptoPunt. Bounty programs will help maximise the security of the platform by providing lucrative incentives for white hat hackers to disclose bugs to the project.
Where to play CryptoPunt?
Two CryptoPunt websites will be available on the 18th of October. One website will provide entry to the CryptoPunt dApp with the initial suite of three games while the other will provide comprehensive information on how the CryptoPunt platform works. The website with comprehensive information will also have a link to mainnet.
CryptoPunt is setting up to be the next major phase in the evolution of decentralized gaming. Up until now, the vast majority of decentralized gaming options have had poorly designed interfaces and have been clunky to use. CryptoPunt is designed to encompass intuitive navigation and cutting-edge gaming experiences. Anyone with PUN tokens will be able to tap into the future of decentralized gaming.
