Genesis NFT Distribution
The Genesis Roaches are the starting point of the roach population and evolution in Roach Racing Club. They carry the purest DNA material with unique traits for future generations and have absolute Resistance. There will be only 10,000 Genesis Roaches ever created and distributed via the Genesis NFT drop.
We use the Pay-What-You-Want (PWYW) model for Genesis collection distribution and we believe it’s the most honest way to set up the foundation of a community-driven project. There’s no minimum and it’s you who has all the control of the price for Genesis Roach mint. We believe it’s the most organic way to bootstrap the Web3 community.
Chainlink VRF is used to create the genomes for Genesis Roaches which enables the random yet fair distribution of traits within the Genesis Collection in a most decentralized way. This is the seed for the generation of the roach genome. The genome is made up of several attributes (traits), each of which is selected from a random set.
The race for the highest bonus during the Genesis Drop has already started. Before the Genesis NFT distribution starts, members are able to score points for their activity in the early community development and earn a place in the whitelist.
To put it simply, whitelisted participants have more chances to get a roach with rare traits. A roach with a rare trait or even with a combination of rare traits is a scarce asset with a high value. Admission to the whitelist secures participation in the Genesis Drop and increases the chances to get the most valuable assets in the game.
Each whitelisted participant will be able to acquire roaches with an individual bonus of up to 25% higher chance to get a rare roach.
The basic probability to get a roach with at least one rarest trait during the Drop is 7.36%. Members can increase their chances by up to 25%, and enter the Genesis Drop with up to a 9.18% probability of getting a roach with at least one of the rarest traits.
This is how this probability is calculated:
- There are 6 trait categories in total
- In each category, the 20% of the rarest traits appear with a basic probability pt=1.27% (approximately 127 times per 10,000 Genesis Roaches)
Since each roach has a combination of traits from each category, the basic probability to get a roach with at least one rarest trait is 7.36% (approximately 736 roaches per 10,000 Genesis Roaches). The calculation is done according to the formula:
To get into the whitelist and enter Trait Race members need to make at least 10 invites or reach experience level 10 on Roach Racing Club Discord server. By fulfilling one of the minimum requirements a participant gets admitted to the whitelist with a minimum bonus of 5% during the Drop to increase the rare roach probability.
Whitelist participants can improve their positions and secure the highest bonus of 25% before the Drop. In order to do that, a participant needs to make at least 50 invites and reach 17 XP level. The final individual bonus is calculated as a sum of the Invite Count Bonus and XP level bonus as follows:
Participants will be able to compete for the higher bonus until the Trait Race finishes. The final bonuses will be announced before the Drop in the official Discord server and participants' addresses with the bonus values will be submitted to the NFT Drop contract.
