Rank, Level, XP and Age
All the NFT virtual pets have in-game characteristics that directly influence your rewards (along with the number of NFT pets, the referral structure, staking and player social media score).
The are 12 Ranks in the game that form a reward-based hierarchy by determining player's max reward, as well as the $(V)IGUP amount necessary for feeding the virtual pet and the vesting schedule ($VIGUP unlock rate). You can learn more about the reward system and the $VIGUP token in the Wallet section.
* The max reward is zero in case you only have a Free NFT. If it's a part of a collection with higher Rank NFTs, the max reward is 30.3
** As of now, the unlock rate is not compounding and is equal to 1% for all NFTs. The locked rewards will be swappable to IGUAI, the token of a new ecosystem, comprising the IguVerse app, the decentralized ad network and the AI-powered marketplace and other future solutions.
Only the 6 lower Ranks are available for mint. Users will need to complete daily tasks and gather experience (XP) to increase their Level and consequently Rank. Each task has a different experience value which will be distributed between the user's NFTs.
Each Rank has 10 Levels to progress to the next one. Once the necessary experience threshold to proceed to the next Level is reached, the user will need to spend $IGUP to advance. After 10 Level-Ups, a Rank Upgrade priced in $IGU is possible. In order to rank up from a Lower Rank to a Higher Rank, the user has to pay 70% of that higher rank mint price.
The feature of Age measures the number of days since NFT creation. Each Rank has its unique Age limit. After it's surpassed, the NFT is rendered unusable and needs to be restored. The Age Limit has been calculated in such a way that in normal conditions the user is able to recoup their investments and earn significant profits.
Reviving the NFT costs 80% of the mint price.
Rank-Ups lower the NFT age back to zero and set the new Age Limit equal to that of the new Rank.
NFT Age is calculated from day 0! So, if the NFT has the Age Limit of n, the last day in its lifespan is actually n-1.
