Dark Country Adds Utility to SDM Token

Dark Country launched their land gameplay and Shadow Dime token some time back. Unfortunately, there have not been many use cases for this token. This is beginning to change now as Dark Country adds utility in the ability to buy card packs with Shadow Dimes, and also introduces two liquidity pools for the token as well.

Players can earn Shadow Dimes, or SDM tokens, by embarking on quests in the land gameplay of Dark Country. Gather together a hero and 40 cards to send out on these player made quests. Questing is passive. Players simply pick their hero, select the appropriate level quest, and click a button. About 24 hours later, the quest ends and the player receives SDM tokens. Landowners also receive passive token income based on the influence level of their owned lands.

However, there has not been much players could do with these tokens. Landowners use them to create quests and can stake tokens to lower the decay rate of their influence, but that was about it. Fortunately, Dark Country is slowly addressing the lack of SDM sinks by adding two new features — pack purchases with SDM tokens, and a new SDM staking system on Flow.

New Shadow Dime (SDM) Use Cases

Two new options are now available for SDM tokens.

Players can buy Dark Country packs on the site for the cost of 20,000 SDM tokens. Purchases may be made from the FLOW or WAX blockchains. These are for standard packs, and only 2000 are available. Players can purchase these packs on the official website.

In addition, for those who like staking and farming, there are now liquidity pools (LPs) on both FLOW and WAX. The pairing on FLOW is with USDC. You will need a Blocto Wallet to access to set up your LPs. Once you have your LP tokens, stake them on

Liquidity pools on WAX can be accessed at DIY farm. SDM tokens are paired with WAX tokens for this LP.

Both farming pools are open meaning you can add and remove your liquidity at any point during the 30 day period. The liquidity pools opened on November 1st and lasts for 30 days.

Dark Country also introduced a card leasing system recently, allowing players to lease cards for 30-day rental periods. The interface is not that great, but the feature is functional!

Expect to see more uses for SDM token arrive over the coming months as Dark Country continues to build out their world. Upcoming features include Guild Wars, more building upgrades, leagues, seasons, farming, and more!
