April 2022 | Whitepaper v1.0 | Developed by Galactic Games
Galactic Goons offers decentralised digital asset ownership via the tokenisation of in-game assets. The success of any game and sustainability of its economy will be driven by its daily active player base. Our genesis community will be the first to play the game to ensure it is “battle ready” before we scale up for mass adoption. Future expansion of our NFT player base will be carefully implemented to minimise adverse impacts on our genesis holders.
Customisable 3D goon avatars
Customisable personal space
Weapons, cars, equipment
Advertisement plots, showcase galleries and other land plots.
Private Gaming Suite
In-game utility to access and broaden gameplay experience.
For example, a player may need to own a sniper NFT to compete in sniper-only modes.
Unlike traditional game developers, we won’t restrict the ability of our players to monetise their in-game assets. NFTs are ‘essential infrastructure’ which underpins the growth of the metaverse by replicating the ownership of tangible assets in the digital world.
Generic Goons (i.e. no traits) will be introduced to offer "try before you buy" incentives to our gaming metaverse. However, non-NFT holders will have restrictions on play-to-earn mechanics and limited access to reward pools.
All in-game transaction taxes will only be used for approved purposes compliant with our Development Policy. For example, the Treasury may fund eSport tournaments and prize pools to engage our existing player base but also attract new players.
Galactic Marketplace: any in-game transaction taxes collected in $GOONS will reduce the velocity of $GOONS in circulation and act as a natural staking function (i.e. the Treasury will 'lock-up' any taxes collected in $GOONS until it is circulated back into the game economy).
In addition to the utility NFTs, players will also be able to trade cosmetic NFT traits in-game to customise their avatars with new skin textures, clothing or accessories.
Each Genesis Goon NFT holder will begin the game with the matching cosmetic traits of their NFT.
The genesis traits can be unequipped to allow players to customise their in-game avatars with new cosmetic accessories but will not be tradeable to ensure that each NFT retains its original combination of traits.
This offers certainty for buyers of Genesis Goon NFTs on secondary markets by protecting them from buying an NFT with:
mismatching in-game cosmetic traits; or
a 'naked' goon that has been stripped from its traits.
