Taxi Gaming

We're pleased to announce our first excavate ecosystem project - Taxi Gaming (website link - https://taxigaming.com)

About

Taxi Gaming is a play to earn passive strategy NFT game which rewards people in $EUSD, the BUSD pegged stable coin from Excavate Finance. Players can buy and stake Taxi and City NFTs to earn $CityGold, the native token of Taxi Gaming. $CityGold in turn can be converted to $EUSD. Taxi gaming features 2 kinds of gameplays - Be a Taxi NFT Owner or a Land NFT Owner (Or both).

Taxi NFT Gameplay and Strategy

About

Taxi NFTs earn by staking Taxi NFT into a City Land NFT to get daily rewards in $CityGold. City gold can then be converted into $EUSD using a dynamic conversion rate based on the demand and supply of $EUSD/$CityGold.

Strategy

  1. 1.
    Stake your Taxi NFT to any public City NFT that is at a higher level. The higher the level, the more you earn.
  2. 2.
    Stake to a City NFT that has the least Taxis. Get more rides due to low competition and maximise your earnings.
  3. 3.
    Level up fast. More the levels higher the reward. Get up to 100X rewards when you're at the highest level.
  4. 4.
    Taxi NFTs have battle mechanics in them. Since there are finite spots per level (There's only 2 possible taxis that can be at max level 11) the taxi NFTs have to battle taxis of a higher level to bring their level down before they can upgrade.
  5. 5.
    Defend against any attack. As you reach higher levels, give equal importance to defending your level. The higher the level, the more enemies you make, so forming guilds to coordinate and strategically defend would help retain your taxi level.
  6. 6.
    Move to another City that offers more rewards by roads that connect cities.
  7. 7.
    Teleport to another city by paying a fee.
  8. 8.
    Choose Cities that charge the least tax.

Benefits to the Excavate Ecosystem

  1. 1.
    In-game upgrades consume $EUSD. This makes decreases the circulating supply of $EUSD, makes it a valuable commodity and increases the buy pressure. This will help maintain the $EUSD peg.
  2. 2.
    Hyper competitive taxi and city battle mechanics continuously consumes $EUSD so that $EUSD has utility and adds a massive buy pressure.
