The tower defense game Crazy Defense Heroes will have another play-to-earn challenge for 1 million TOWER tokens split between all players that earn 275,000 XP. These play-to-earn pools will be active in September and October. With these two new pools the bar for the rewards has been raised, but so have the rewards.
In August players needed to earn 250,000 XP, and with it came a reward pool of 750,000 TOWER tokens. When they announced those August rewards, the token was $0.015. Now TOWER has a $0.055 valuation. This means that the reward pool for September and October is more than $55,000 per month.
However, from my own Crazy Defense Heroes experience I can say it’s already quite the challenge to reach 250,000 XP. This would make 275,000 even a bigger challenge. However, this would also mean that less players succeed and therefore the rewards are greater. We’ll see.
Crazy Defense Heroes is a mobile tower defense game. You need to build towers to stop a horde of enemies. Players earn resources that they can use to upgrade their towers. Some towers work better or worse against specific enemies. For the play-to-earn mechanics of the game, the XP earnings are measured through snapshots at the beginning and end of the month. So it doesn’t matter if you’re level 20 or level 1, you will just need to earn 275,000 XP.

A bit more about TOWER
Animoca Brands is working on transforming their free-to-play titles, which make up a considerable part of their revenue, into blockchain-enabled play-to-earn games. They are doing this by adding play-to-earn mechanics to their games, starting with Crazy Defense Heroes and Crazy Kings. The TOWER token is central to this new ecosystem.
TOWER is an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum blockchain that can be used in both Crazy Kings and Crazy Defense Heroes. This same token will ultimately also be used in a new and upcoming game in the franchise. Token holders will have governance and voting rights on the game’s direction. In addition, these tokens will be part of decentralized finance initiatives, including staking. However, details still need to be revealed about that.
Token owners can use their money to mint new NFTs, which ultimately are in-game cards that can be traded among players. These cards have different powers, values, and rarities. Last but not least, there will be tournaments with entry fees and which players can also win tokens.
