Xaya has postponed the launch of their Taurion Treasure Hunt for three days, which has everything to do with the introduction of a new in-game currency called Cubits. The strategy battle for digital goodies and cryptocurrencies will now start on Friday August 28th. Cubits can’t be traded yet, and automatically carry over to the full game when it releases.
Gamers active inside the world of Taurion can use Cubits to buy, sell and trade assets with others. Players will also use the currency to pay in-game fees. Players can acquire Cubits by mining, destroying non-player characters or purchasing the currency from the game itself.
Gamers who want to buy Cubits, will need to use CHI for this. CHI is the native cryptocurrency of the Xaya blockchain. In turn the Xaya blockchain is completely community-driven. As a result Taurion and other games running on Xaya are completely decentralized and don’t require any central storage. Players use the game client, while all gameplay takes place on-chain.
During the pre-sale gamers can buy Cubits at different discounted rates. During the first phase Xaya will sell 10 billion Cubits, and for the cheapest batch players need to pay 1 CHI per 10 thousand Cubits. The amount of CHI per 10 thousand Cubits increases every 10 billion units sold. In total 40 billion Cubits will be sold. Players will be able to earn the rest of the Cubits in-game. There’s a total supply of 100 billion Cubits.
What is Taurion?
In the online strategy game Taurion players contribute to a completely decentralized world. Spread across factions and a massive alien landscape, gamers will have the opportunity to compete and harvest resources. As a result gameplay secures the blockchain assets and cryptocurrencies through human intelligence, skill, effort, and team work. This is true play-to-earn in a player-governed virtual world.
Users cooperate and compete as they fill various roles and niches within their factions. As those alliances grow stronger, profits will increase. However, success is likely to attract more predators. Players partake in an environment where the credo is to explore, expand, exploit, exterminate. As a result one should always be wary.
All this takes place in a decentralized, massively-multiplayer online real-time strategy universe. Like a virtual, futuristic adaptation of the Wild West, Taurion is a planet full of lost hope and endless ambition. It will allow gamers to reach a level of achievement not possible in traditional gaming outlets. Join here!
