$GOLD (In-Game Currency)

$GOLD is NOT a cryptocurrency and will serve as a typical in-game token, with no monetary value.
Here are the following reasons why Warchain's team has decided to keep $GOLD as an in-game currency and not a monetized possession
  1. 1.
    Gamer Centered - One of Warchain's goals is to create a game on the blockchain that has minimum friction to non-blockchain users.
  2. 2.
    In-Game Stability - There is a very high risk when in-game currency becomes a publicly traded token. If the token goes up or down considerably, then the entire gaming ecosystem set around certain token rewards for each quest, all shop items, etc... gets thrown off balance. This would produce an unnecessarily complicated in-game economy.
  3. 3.
    $WAR Token - $WAR token is Warchain's main cryptocurrency asset. Warchain has awarded all in-game utility to $WAR that was decided to be beneficial to the gaming economy and also to the incentivization of the gamers. Due to the existence of $WAR, the in-game experience is not un-monetized, even though Gold is not a cryptocurrency itself.
  4. 4.
    Balance - Since gold is not purchasable on an exchange, it keeps the in-game experience centered around gaming. Warchain does have an NFT marketplace where items can be purchased with $WAR tokens, but these items, due to high rarity, will most likely have high level requirements. This creates a healthy balance between whales and pure gamers.
Gold can technically be used to purchase items in-game that can later be sold for $WAR tokens on an NFT marketplace and vice versa.
