Powered by Insert Coin

Insert Coin is a cryptocurrency on the Solana blockchain designed by Exergy Games. It is a GameFi token earned and used within multiple games that Exergy Games designs and produces.

As a studio, Exergy Games plans to actively develop and eventually maintain up to 5 high-quality play-to-own NFT games at any one time. After the launch of Rocket Dogs in Summer 2022, Exergy Games plans to release games 2 through 5 over the next 5-10 years, with a target of launching one new game every 1-2 years. These additional games, from unique genres, will help grow the collective Insert Coin player base, community, and Ecosystem.

Mirroring the experience of a virtual arcade, players can use, earn, and win Insert Coin within all titles developed by Exergy Games. Extending beyond the virtual arcade, Insert Coin holders will be able to direct portions of the long-term development of the ecosystem through Governance voting.

Eventually, Insert Coin will extend into other games, properties, and experiences from other developers or the community through the Ecosystem Grant Program. See below for more details.

In-Game Rewards Governance

Insert Coin uses a singular token model where in-game rewards and governance are merged into a single token. Instead of multiple tokens per game like current industry standards, Insert Coin is designed to achieve compounded utilization from multiple player bases to increase its use within an ever-expanding collection of games and experiences over time.

This singular token design reinforces Exergy Games' underlying thesis that by increasing utilization of a singular token, it can strengthen the network effects, user adoption, and longevity of the Insert Coin ecosystem. The single token model also gives active players and the community the largest external voice in the long-term development of the ecosystem, not speculative investors.

In-Game Rewards & Token Only Uses

Players of any Insert Coin ecosystem game (including all Exergy Games) will be able to use, earn, and win Insert Coin within each of these games in a variety of ways. See the Ecosystem page for a look into how this first game, Rocket Dogs, will be utilizing Insert Coins in game.

Governance

Insert Coin holders will eventually be able to propose and vote on various proposals to help direct the long-term development of the ecosystem. See the Governance section below for more details.

Token Allocations

Insert Coin has a fixed supply of 1 trillion tokens.

Insert Coin will be allocated as detailed below. Most token allocations will be locked on the token launch day, and then unlocked daily over time based on the allocation type. The Player Rewards allocation isn't locked but rather awarded daily over a period of years to support each play-to-own game in the ecosystem. Each allocation's unlock or rewards schedule is detailed below:

Player Reward Pools

Insert Coin's unique, fixed supply, singular token design necessitates a reimagining of how daily player rewards function. The initial Player Rewards allocation is split into 3 different types of pools:

Game Launch Pools

5% of total supply each, for the first 5 Exergy Games.

Each of the first 5 Exergy Games, starting with Rocket Dogs and then Enforcers, are allocated 5% of the total supply of Insert Coin for their game's dedicated Player Reward pool. These pools award tokens daily for 5 years: 1% of the total supply per year, per game, for the first 5 years of each game to kickstart that game's economy.

Once a game's dedicated Player Reward pool is depleted after 5 years, the game's daily token rewards will come exclusively from its share of the Daily Active User pool.

Daily Active User Pool

20% of total supply for the entire Insert Coin ecosystem.

The Daily Active User pool is shared among all Insert Coin ecosystem games and experiences. Its initial supply is awarded daily over 10 years: 2% of the total supply per year for the first 10 years to kickstart and support the ecosystem.

Daily token rewards are split pro-rata among all ecosystem games and experiences. These splits are based on their % of the ecosystem's total daily active users. For example, if Rocket Dogs has 45% of the daily active users of the ecosystem, its players will receive 45% of the daily token rewards. The remaining 55% will be split pro-rata between the ecosystem's other games and experiences. An example is given below:

Insert Coin Ecosystem Daily Active Users Daily Active User Pool Splits
Rocket Dogs 334,360 45%
Enforcers 237,770 32%
Game 3 170,890 23%

The pro-rata splits of this pool's daily token rewards readjust weekly. These readjustments are based on the prior week's daily active user splits of each game and experience within the ecosystem. See below for more details.

When Rocket Dogs first launches, it will be the only game or experience within the Insert Coin ecosystem. Its players will receive 100% of the Daily Active User pool's daily token rewards until additional games and experiences are live within the ecosystem.

The Daily Active User pool is a key component of Insert Coin's circular economy. As detailed further below, 75% of all Insert Coins spent in-game will be recirculated back to the Daily Active User pool. This token recirculation will ensure that the ecosystem always has Insert Coins available for Player Rewards, even after the pool's initial 10-year token supply is awarded. All Insert Coins recirculated this way during years 1-10 will be held in the pool until year 11.

Starting in year 11, all recirculated Insert Coins, including the first 10 year's recirculated tokens, will fund Player Rewards in perpetuity. Also starting in year 11, the total weekly rewards allocation of this pool will be algorithmically determined on a continual basis as a derivative of the current average token spend rate to ensure the pool is never depleted.

Reserve Pool

5% of all Player Reward token allocations are held in a Reserve pool to cover spikes in daily active users over the weekly projection. This will ensure that the Player Reward pools don't deplete faster than designed and can cover any additional daily token rewards needed during a daily active user spike in between Weekly Reward Rate Readjustments.

A projection for Insert Coin's first year is given below:

Player Reward Pools Yearly Reward Rate Insert Coins Allocated per Year
Rocket Dogs Pool 1% 10,000,000,000
Daily Active User Pool 2% 20,000,000,000
3% 30,000,000,000*

* This allotment is inclusive of the reserve pool.

Target Year 1 Allocations Percentage Total Coins
Gross Insert Coins Allocated 100% 30,000,000,000
Reserve Pool 5% 1,500,000,000
Net Year 1 Total 28,500,000,000
Per Day 78,082,192
Daily Token Reward Rates

Every earning activity within the Insert Coin ecosystem has a daily token reward rate. These rates are based on the total token rewards allocated per game or experience, and the distribution of that allocation among all earning activities within those games or experiences. These token reward rates are subject to Weekly Reward Rate Readjustments.

When Rocket Dogs first launches as the only Insert Coin ecosystem game or experience, it will receive its weekly token rewards allotment from its Game Launch pool plus 100% of the token rewards allotment from the Daily Active User pool. An example of Rocket Dogs' first week of daily token rewards is given below:

Rocket Dogs Earn Activity Percent Distribution Target Insert Coins (daily)
Racing 70% 54,657,534
Scavenging 25% 19,520,548
Season Leaderboard Prize Pool 5% 3,904,109*
100% 78,082,192

* Season Leaderboard Prize Pool is the total of 91 days of token rewards. Each season will last 13 weeks, or 91 days.

An example is given below of Rocket Dogs' potential week 1 daily token reward rates. These token reward rates are based on projected daily average counts of 25,000 races and 25,000 scavenges for week 1:

Rocket Dogs Earning Activity Insert Coins Reward Rate Amount Daily Total
Per Race Prize Pool* 2,186 25,000 54,657,534
Per Scavenge 780 25,000 19,520,548

* Per race prize pools are split among all 5 racers, based on place. See the Ecosystem page for a detailed overview.

The Reserve pool will be used to cover any additional token rewards needed due to the daily token reward rate. For example, if an average of 30,000 races and 30,000 scavenges occur per day in this first week of Rocket Dogs, these additional Insert Coins will be awarded from the Reserve Pool. The following week, the token rewards rates will be adjusted lower based on the increased daily active user count. See below for more details.

In weeks where less than the projected Insert Coins are awarded, the remaining Insert Coins will first be added to the Reserve pool if the pool contains less than the 5% token reserve. If the Reserve pool is already at 5%, these Insert Coins will be rolled over to the next week, thereby increasing the daily token rewards rate for the upcoming week. This is called a Rollover allocation.

The final week 1 Rocket Dogs daily token reward rates will be officially announced upon game launch. That way, an accurate daily active user projection can be used to determine week 1's daily token reward rates. The above rates are used as examples only and are not intended as guaranteed week 1 rates. Actual week 1 token rewards rates could be higher or lower.

Weekly Reward Rate Readjustments

The daily token reward rate for all earning activities within the Insert Coin ecosystem will readjust weekly. These readjustments are based on the prior week's average daily active player counts. This weekly readjustment will ensure that on average, the appropriate number of Insert Coins are being awarded daily. It will also ensure that the Player Reward pools are not depleted faster than designed.

Weekly rate adjustments will occur in the following order to determine the next week's daily token reward rates:

  1. Determine Daily Active User pool splits for the preceding week
  2. Distribute prior week's non-awarded tokens to either the Reserve pool or this week's Rollover allocations (if applicable)
  3. Determine weekly allocation for each game or experience based on its share of the Daily Active user pool, its Game Launch pool (if applicable), and its Rollover allocations (if applicable)
  4. Determine daily token reward rates for each earning activity for each game or experience based on its projected active player count (as a function of its projected daily active players), its earning activity distribution splits, and its weekly Insert Coin player reward allocation (calculated in steps 1-3 above)
Token Spend Distribution

Every game and experience within the Insert Coin ecosystem will have a multitude of fun and engaging ways for players to spend Insert Coins. From upgrading NFTs to unlocking exclusive in-game content, the options are boundless. You can learn more about the ways you can use Insert Coins in the first game, Rocket Dogs, on the Ecosystem page.

All Insert Coins spent, consumed, or sunk in all ecosystem games and experiences will be distributed as follows:

75%

DAU Player Rewards Pool

Recirculated to the Daily Active User Player Rewards pool.

15%

Community Treasury

Recirculated to the Community Treasury.

10%

Exergy Games

Distributed to Exergy Games to fund continual development of the ecosystem.

Community Treasury

The Community Treasury is the Insert Coin ecosystem's development and reserve fund. Its intended use is to help fund or fuel the expansion and continual growth of the Insert Coin ecosystem. It is directed by both the Insert Coin team, and when applicable, Insert Coin holders using Governance voting.

Primary uses of the Community Treasury are:

Ecosystem Grant Program

The community and 3rd party developers will be incentivized to help grow the Insert Coin ecosystem through the awarding of Insert Coin grants. Initially, Insert Coin is looking to fund grants for the following projects:

Community Developed Games

Community developed games, mini-games, or online interactive experiences using Rocket Dogs or any future Exergy Games NFTs through which Insert Coins can be used, spent, won, and earned within.

Community Interactive Experiences

Community organized experiences and meetups for Insert Coin or any Exergy Games title, such as Insert Coin convention meetups or in-person Rocket Dogs tournaments through which Insert Coins can be used, spent, won, and earned within.

3rd Party Games and Experiences

3rd party developers who would like to add Insert Coin into their games or community experiences, allowing for an expanded community of people to use, spend, win, and earn Insert Coins.

All grants will be subject to approval by the Insert Coin team, and when applicable, by the community through Governance voting. Approved grants will be subject to completion of project milestones, and generally subject to a token unlocking schedule.

Additional information on the Ecosystem Grant Program will be released once the program and the grant application goes live. This is currently slated for soon after the token launch date. Once the program is live, anyone is welcome to apply for an Insert Coin grant.

Governance

In time, Insert Coin will seek to allow its community to help shape the long-term direction of the ecosystem through Governance voting. By holding Insert Coins, community members will eventually be able to vote on proposals to help grow the Insert Coin ecosystem. These proposals will be funded by the Community Treasury.

Full details on Governance voting, including how users can submit and vote on ecosystem proposals will be released at a later date.
