The Everdragons team is working hard every day to make Everdragons the best blockchain game. During the development things constantly change and evolve and we are getting many questions from our active community. We try to answer them all and hope to already cover a large part of your questions with these FAQ.
If your question is not answered here, please write your questions publicly in our social media channels. This way everyone can profit from the answer. If the questions gets a lot of attention, we will add it here in the FAQ.
The dApp browsers we recommend are as follows:
Nifty (Chrome Plugin)
MetaMask - Plugin for Chrome, Firefox or Brave Browsers. https://metamask.io/and download the extension.
For mobile users there are dApp browser apps available to download from the app store.
We recommend the following:
Trust (iOS and Android)
Once you have downloaded a dApp browser on PC or mobile you can create a digital wallet. This is where you will hold your Crpytocurrency and your Everdragons.
When creating a wallet you will be asked to create a password.
You will also be given 12 seed words. These words are the only way to access your wallet if you forget your password.
Keep the seed words in a safe place. If you lose access to your wallet or have to reinstall your wallet, there is no other way to gain access to your wallet or the funds that are in it.
Nifty wallet has POA and Ethereum networks available as default and so it is the simplest wallet to use when getting started.
MetaMask is preset to the Ethereum network and so you will have to enable POA network to play Everdragons.
To do this:
This means you can buy and sell dragons and play games on POA. If you would like to buy dragons from the Ethereum marketplace and send them to this POA wallet you will need to make your purchases with an Ethereum account of the same address.
To create an Ethereum account with the same address as your POA account:
Already have an Eth or POA account on another wallet you wish to access on Trust:
To import an account from another wallet such as MetaMask, Nifty, MyCrypto etc you will need to first export the private key of the account. Or preferably your wallet has a QR code option so you do not need to send your private key anywhere.
If you have copied a key phrase or private key to your clipboard, remember to clear your clipboard or copy something else so you don’t accidently post or send your private key or key phrase anywhere.For more info on accessing POA on DApp browsers check out https://medium.com/@jacqshardy/how-to-poa-3bac3191630c
To get Cryptocurrency you will need to register at an exchange. Some of the most popular are listed:
These are what are known as fiat cryptocurrency exchanges. 'Fiat' refers to money that a government has declared to be legal tender, e.g. USD, Euro, GBP etc. Meaning you can exchange your fiat money for a cryptocurrency.
An exchange that requires no registration is Coinswitch.co. Here you can buy many cryptocurrencies including Ether and POA with your credit card and you can also exchange cryptocurrencies e.g. Eth to POA.
If you are using one of the fiat exchanges listed above you will have to transfer the cryptocurrency to your DApp browser. To do so:
* Please note this can take a few minutes
If you use coinswitch you will already enter the address of your DApp browser you wish your cryptocurrency to be sent to as part of the exchange/purchase.
Cryptocurrencies are a digital currency built on cryptography as a security measure, making it difficult to counterfeit. They are not controlled by any central authority.
There are currently A LOT of cryptocurrencies available on the market, each one with a different purpose.
Cryptocurrencies are exclusive to the network they are built on so when using POA network you will need POA, for Ethereum you will need Ether etc.
For playing Everdragons you will mostly need POA.
It is up to you how much Ether/POA you would like to purchase. You can always go back and buy more or exchange back to fiat money.
Gas is the term used to describe the cost of powering a transaction or contract on the blockchain.
As the blockchain is decentralized, each transaction is transmitted through multiple computers to confirm, rather than a central server. This requires more power which is covered by the Gas price.
Everdragons started on the Ethereum blockchain and expanded to POA Network as a solution to the ongoing network congestion causing high transaction fees. POA offers cheaper and faster transactions.
For now dragons can only be sent from Ethereum to POA and not back again.
There is a marketplace on both blockchains so players can purchase and sell dragons on Ethereum and POA.
The games are currently only live on POA so we advise new players to buy their dragons on POA.
If you have dragons on Ethereum that you wish to send to POA:
If you are sending a dragon from Ethereum to POA, you must have access to the POA account with the same address as the Ethereum account you’re sending from. Please follow instructions in ‘How do I get a dApp browser?’ above.
Newly spawned Everdragons are put on the Marketplace, together with the Everdragons that are traded by players. There will always be around 5% - 10% newly spawned Everdragons on the Marketplace with a fixed price range. Although the newly spawned Everdragons have no Prestige or Experience, their price does influence the average market price significantly.
Everdragons are sold via the reverse auction system.
The pricing system is as follows:
This ensures a constant supply of Newly Spawned Everdragons that are sold at a fixed price.
Players will always have the chance to purchase an Everdragon at a price within the range of Entry price and Minimum price.
The prices of Everdragons with a lot of Prestige and Experience on the other hand are volatile and leave room for speculation and high profits.
Everdragons are sold by the reverse auction system. This means they have an entry price that slowly declines over time down to a minimum price. Once the reverse auction has reached the minimum price, it will remain there until the Everdragon is sold.
This system gives players the chance to get the Everdragon they really want by purchasing it at or near the entry price. If the demand for this Everdragon seems low, players can wait till the price declines and grab a good bargain instead.
Everdragons for sale will appear on the Marketplace alongside Newly Spawned Everdragons.
If players decide to sell one of their Everdragons they can do so with the reverse auction system, ensuring they get the best price.
This means the player sets up a preferred sale price and a minimum sale price.
The price slowly decreases from the preferred parameter until someone buys the Everdragon or it hits the minimum sales price where it will stay until it is sold or the auction is cancelled.
An important factor for the value of a collectible is its scarcity. To support a stable and slightly increasing value, the number of Everdragons is controlled by the scarcity control algorithm (SCA). Depending on the supply and demand of Everdragons on the Marketplace, the SCA will adjust the number of newly spawned Everdragons.
By keeping the count of new Everdragons controlled, chances for extreme volatility are drastically decreased.
The SCA is in charge of spawning Newly Spawned Everdragons (NSE) in the Marketplace. It operates by the following rules:
Everdragons are driven by a Power Source outside the Blockchain. Each Everdragon is allocated a Power Source Number, which is embedded in their DNA. This number determines the source of Power for the Everdragons in each game.
For example: In the Race, a game based on the course of cryptocurrencies, this Power Source Number determines which cryptocurrency each Everdragon is connected to and therefore dictates its performance in this game.
In a game based on a sporting event, this Power Source Number determines which team/athlete each Everdragon is associated with. The performance of the team/athlete then dictates the performance of the Everdragon in this game.
Each game will specify what the Power Source is connected to for that game.
With every game comes an opportunity to gain Experience points and also to win Prestige and Gold coins.
Experience: Awarded to all participating Dragons in each game whether they win or not.
Indicates how active a Dragon is in the games.
Dragons with higher Experience points will be able to enter higher level games.
Increasing Experience increases the maximum fullness level.
Prestige: Awarded to the winning Dragon(s) of a game.
Prestige can be used to host your own games.
Gold coins: Gold coins are awarded to winning dragon(s). The amount of gold coins awarded varies with each game depending on how much fullness is required to participate.
If several dragons share a win they split the pot of gold coins.
Gold coins can be used to feed dragons or can be sold to the platform for POA.
Everdragons keep their Prestige and Experience, meaning if they are sold their Prestige and Experience points go with them.
Everdragons hand over any Gold Coins they win to their owner.
Gold coins are won in the games and can be used to feed your dragons or can be sold back to the platform for POA.
First they need to be claimed.
To claim Gold Coins:
Gold coins can be sold to the platform for POA after they have been claimed.
Dragons need food in their bellies in order to participate in the games. To feed:
To host a game you will need an Everdragon with Prestige.
Everdragons can exchange their Prestige to host their own game where they make the rules.
Players can build a game from a preset criteria, including:
Game hosting is coming soon.
