Welcome to WP bits, RAWG’s regular series of posts where we chop ourwhitepaper, presentations, other documents and overall strategy in small digestible pieces. The presale of RAWG tokens is already open and we are halfway through to the hardcap of $10M, so this is high time we started explaining RAWG tokens to private purchasers.RAWG token is the basis of our economics system and our blockchain solution to ease our integration of “play to earn” system in the masses. Gamers can turn their achievements into tokens that then can be used to exchange for fiat and cryptocurrencies or digital and physical goods from our partners. RAWG tokens will also serve as a means for advertisers and our partners to get involved with their target audience. While it sounds simple and straightforward, there is a system at play and our tokenomics involve several participants to achieve balanced long-term circulation of tokens.Our participants can be divided into several groups:
Basically, the token circulation can be shown like this:
How gamers get tokens
As mentioned before, the player gets our token for getting achievements in any game across popular platforms like Steam, PS, Xbox. Straightforward and simple but there are nuances. To achieve balanced and fair distribution of the tokens between gamers and measure appropriately their time and skill, RAWG will have “karma”.Karma is a special in-system form to properly award and distinguish players between the most hardcore and more casual ones. It is counted every 2 weeks by checking the overall activity of players. So how does it work exactly?The gamer plays their favorite games for two weeks, then at the end, the system checks the achievements they got. The achievements are different in terms of rarity. Rarity is a dynamic scale, i.e. depends on how many users receive this achievement/trophy in this two-weeks period. This is done in order to make rare and hard achievements more valuable. 80% of the most common achievements/trophies give 1 point of karma, 15% of the rarer ones — 2 points, 5% of the rarest ones — 3 points. The partner games give 2 points, 3 points, 4 points respectively.By now we have come up with the following plan of tokens distribution. The prize of RAWG tokens is distributed depending on the amount of karma the gamer received. There are three groups:
- 20% of those who received the most karma receive 65% of all tokens in this cycle. These tokens are divided proportionally to earned karma.
- Users that are in the next group (21%-50% of the total Karma) divide 20% of the two-week prize.
- The remaining gamers, who received karma less than half of the average statistical value, divide between themselves 10%. In this case, they will receive tokens with a probability of 50%.
New users who just synchronized their achievements that they earned in a lifetime receive 5% of the overall prize with a probability of 100%.Finally, when all is said and done, tokens are sent to gamers’ wallets and can be used appropriately.Important to note, RAWG does not enforce spending the token as fast as possible and will not seize any tokens from the user.
