If you minted one, you are lucky, because the free mint is officially over as of last night. The community has minted around 10,000 eggs in total.
There will be a couple of ways of getting your hands on new Dragon eggs:
- You will be able to buy one with in-game gold as soon as we launch the game shop
- Sometimes (rarely!) eggs will drop from Treasure chests
- As soon as the $JPLU utility token has been released, eggs will be available for locking up some $JPLU for a certain period of time
This is planned for July in our roadmap.
To hatch a Dragon from an Egg, you use Magic Dust which will drop in Treasure chests. It will also be available from the game shop where you can buy it for $JPLU.
Your dragons will go treasure hunting for you! They will bring back gold, and sometimes, depending on their Luck, even a Treasure chest (see below).
There will be a P2P Ladder, and there will be Seasons (lasting 1 week, to be confirmed).
The Ladder will have multiple Tiers (from lowest Wooden and Copper to highest Diamond and Celestial tiers). If you finish the season in a high position within your tier, you get promoted to the next tier on the ladder.
Also, if you are high enough in your tier, you also get a nice reward chest which depends on your tier and your position within that tier.
Chests and rewards
All chests will hold Gold.
Additional treasure in the chest may include:
- Magic Dust to activate more eggs and get more dragons
- Potions to boost your dragon temporarily or even increase its stats permanently
- Crypto! There is a small chance of getting some JPLU, JSOL or SOL in your chest
- NFTs! There is an even smaller chance of winning a nice valuable NFT from another project
Upgrading and trading Dragons
In every treasure hunt, your dragon gains some experience that converts into improved stats. There is a limit of stat upgrades in every tier; some additional stats can be gained from potions.
If you get 1 dragon of each of five types, you can trade these 5 dragons for 1 egg of higher tier, e.g. 5 dragons of tier 1 for an egg of tier 2, that can be hatched into a tier 2 dragon.
When you do this, your new egg (and the dragon that hatches from it) keeps all stats from the top 3 dragons that went into it! So the better your tier1 dragons were, the better the new tier2 dragon is going to be.
As for the trading, we are working on integrating both Eggs and Dragons with an NFT marketplace so you can buy and sell them.
We have plans to build our own marketplace for dragons and eggs as well.
Backing the value
The Dragons will be integrated with JPool — highest-APY Solana liquid staking project. 10% of total stake within JPool (which is now over 1 million SOL) will be distributed between validators that have a H&S Dragon working for them (locked in the validator).
JPool DAO token holders will also need a dragon NFT to lock their tokens inside in order to be able to participate in making DAO decisions in JPool.
This means that there will be additional demand for the dragons outside of the game.
But I want some Magic Dust to get my Dragon sooner!
There will be a series of auctions for Ancient Magic Dust, used to create an Ancient Dragon with improved stats. These auctions will take place in early July. Such dragons will be unique, have increased stats, and the higher-tier dragons created using one or more Ancient dragons will be Ancient as well.
