Pixelmon Unveils Badge System
Pixelmon May Evolve Kevin
Logan Hitchcock

Pixelmon owners will soon be deciding whether Kevin, their beloved digital companion, should undergo an on-chain evolution.

The Deets

  • Pixelmon owners will vote on Kevin's evolution starting June 8 at 10:0 a.m. ET until June 18 at 10:00 a.m. ET
  • Option A: Kevin remains unevolved but receives E3 state benefits and access
  • Option B: Kevin undergoes on-chain evolution, gaining similar functionalities as other Pixelmons
  • The winning vote is determined by a simple majority, requiring a 25% quorum

The Bulk

Pixelmon is calling on Kevin holders to determine the fate of the memetic hero from the collcetion. Over the next ten days, Kevin holders will participate in a democratic voting process, determining whether Kevin will evolve on-chain or retain its current form while enjoying the privileges of an E3 state Pixelmon.

The process employs a weighted voting system, where each Kevin held equates to one vote. To pass, the vote requires a simple majority (51%) with a 25% quorum.

There are two voting options, outlined as follows:

Option A suggests that Kevin remains unevolved but is treated as if it were already at an E3 evolutionary state. Consequently, Kevin would not evolve to an E4 state. The benefits of this option include equal distribution of ROG among all Kevin NFTs and future airdrops, treating Kevin as if it were an E2/E3 Pixelmon. For instance, within the Pixelmon Party Quest, a trainer paired with Kevin would attain Tier 5 (Max).

Option B, on the other hand, advocates for Kevin's on-chain evolution. This would mean Kevin gets treated like any other Pixelmon, in terms of airdrops, ROG, general utility, and functionality within Pixelmon's NFT products such as Party Quest.

❗️Why It Matters

Kevin has long been the face of Pixlemon, and a change in its metadata would mark a signifcant change, though perhaps a graduation for Pixelmon, finally moving beyond its inital art reveal.

Pixelmon Unleashes Party Quest
Pixelmon Releases Strategy Whitepaper
Logan Hitchcock

Pixelmon has released its strategy whitepaper, detailing its approach to decentralized game ownership through Right-Of-Game (RoG) and NFTs.

The Deets

  • Right-Of-Game (RoG) system
  • Dual game economy: Web2 and Web3
  • Decentralized Autonomous Tribe (DAT)
  • Governance Token

The Details

Pixelmon's strategy whitepaper outlines its approach to decentralized game ownership. The Right-Of-Game (RoG) system aims to decentralize ownership of game IP and in-game assets through NFTs, with L1 Genesis NFTs providing shared IP rights and contractual royalties to owners, and L2 In-game NFTs granting players decentralized ownership of in-game assets. RoG promotes user-generated content, in-game spending, and asset interoperability across different games and ecosystems.

The Genesis NFT Collection consists of Creatures, Evolution Serum, and Trainers & Gears, with utilities for each category detailed in the whitepaper. The game economy accommodates different player preferences, offering access to digital assets through gameplay, in-game store purchases, or secondary marketplace trading. The dual currency system ensures a seamless gameplay experience for Web2 players while providing full ownership of in-game assets for Web3 players.

Decentralized Autonomous Tribes (DATs) will be set up for each of the four tribes in the game, implementing a Governance Token system for strategic and organizational decision-making. The governance framework aims to boost active participation with features like capped supply released over time, quadratic voting mechanisms, and token staking on specific proposals.

❗️Why It Matters

Pixelmon might finally be putting its warchest to use after selling out its high-priced mint, which later revealed to be terrible art... highlighted by Kevin. With a massive treasury and a completely overhauled art direction, it does seem possible that the brand can gain some positive momentum in web3, despite its rather treacherous beginning. Gaming seems to be one of the lone bright spots in web3 this year, and if Pixelmon can capitalize on the approach outline above, it will represent one of the only ecosystems that has provided a clear outline for how NFT holder incentives are aligned with the brand's success. 

πŸ“Š By the Numbers

Pixelmon's floor price has been a roller coaster. The project minted for 3 ETH, before ultimately falling well below 1 ETH. The collection is up 185 percent in the last month to 0.85 ETH at the time of writing.
