The tokenomics remains an essential aspect that cannot be overlooked in Web3 games, yet finding a flawless solution has been an ongoing challenge. Among the numerous game modes available, competitive games have emerged as the prime choice due to their engaging gameplay and impressive user retention. A recent standout in this realm is FlappyMoonbird, which masterfully exemplifies the strengths of competitive gaming. Combined with its innovative entry fee model and the exclusive $FMB coin as the driving force behind substantial consumption, the game has soared to the top of the BNBChain gaming leaderboard, securing the first position, and has garnered a remarkable second spot, claiming an impressive 11% of the total game users on BNBChain.
$FMB initially serves as the launch mechanism for FlappyMoonbird, attracting a large player base through the free-to-play bird-jumping game mode. In this mode, free-to-play users navigate the bird through various obstacles to earn daily rewards, including mystery boxes and $FMB tokens. Each mystery box has the potential to contain rare birds or different types of items for raising rare and genesis birds. Every five boxes opened guarantee a rare bird.
Once players acquire $FMB tokens, they gain access to more immersive competitive gameplay known as Racing Birds. Holders of rare and genesis birds can send their own birds into public competitions. While birds can be enhanced using items contained in the mystery boxes, higher-level birds have a greater chance of winning. If a player’s bird ranks within the top three, they receive additional mystery boxes as rewards. Additionally, the player with the highest-level bird enjoys distinct advantages and an increased likelihood of winning.
Players without birds can participate in predictions and potentially earn high returns on their $FMB investment, with multipliers reaching up to 1,000 times the initial amount. By using $FMB as the entry fee, players can make predictions on the racing results. Before placing their predictions, players can review the attributes of the competing birds, enabling them to make more informed and strategic decisions.
Furthermore, to ensure a fair and unbiased experience, the Arena Mode operates fully on-chain and generates results randomly based on the latest block hash values. The outcomes are not influenced by the attributes of the birds, promoting a level playing field for all participants.
During prediction, players have the option to choose multiple outcomes with different odds, leading to the consumption of thousands of $FMB coins within a single game round. For instance, if one thousand players participate in ten rounds each day, millions of $FMB coins can be consumed. Considering that the total supply of $FMB is only 100 million, the rapid consumption is evident. Additionally, the short duration of each round, which is only two minutes, coupled with the captivating nature of the game mode, further amplifies the consumption of $FMB. With the influx of new players, the consumption rate will experience an exponential surge. Even in the absence of new players, the balance between consumption and reward output can be maintained solely by the existing player base.
Through its competitive nature and entry-fee model, $FMB overcomes the limitation of tokens in Web3 games lacking practical consumption scenarios. Tokens are no longer mere reserves but valuable resources that players can actively use and consume, introducing a greater range of strategic possibilities and variables. This mechanism not only enhances the enjoyment and challenges of the game but also provides players with a more enriching and immersive gaming experience, inevitably attracting a larger player base.
