$LAVA and XP: Usecases

Share this Article:

You’re earning in Vulcan’s #gamefi economy- but what can you do with the fruits of your labor?

The Vulcan Forged play-to-earn economy is in full swing! You’ve hopped in and you’re building up that XP and $LAVA, your My Forge earnings page looks great! But where’s the fun in earning if you can’t spend.. and what exactly can you spend XP and $LAVA on?

XP use cases

XP or ‘experience points’ are earned throughout the Vulcan Forged ecosystem. Your earned XP is a metric displaying what you have put in- time, effort, all of those Berserk wins, those landmark visits in VulcanVerse. XP holds no monetary value, is held off-chain, and cannot be traded. You can earn XP from the majority of our games at present from beta builds onwards. Your XP is viewable under the Earnings tab of your My Forge account.
So you’ve built up your XP. What can you do with it?:

  • Level up your Avatar
  • Level up your Vulcanite’s Stats (now including Level 0 Vulcanites)
  • Participate in events (dependent on the account level)
  • Gamble in Vulcan Poker
  • Upgrade items / appearance
  • Unlock features in Berserk
  • A constant flow of XP is necessary to be able to Stake Land (inactive game accounts won’t receive staking rewards).

$LAVA use cases

$LAVA is the silver to the gold of $PYR. It’s our play-to-earn token and, as such, it is plentiful. You’ll earn Cold $LAVA from playing some of our games ($LAVA addition coming to an increasing number of games soon). This will warm up and will be ready to claim as Hot $LAVA (the on-chain cryptocurrency) after 3 days.
Once you’ve earned $LAVA, here’s a list of what you can or will soon be able to do with it:
