Introducing the Hoglympics | P2E Olympic Games on Solana

The Hoglympics is a next-gen crypto metaverse project incorporating esports with the Solana blockchain technology, NFTs, and decentralized finance to produce an immersive, play-to-earn Olympic soccer game.

LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

As the project’s name suggests, eventually, the platform will offer room for other distinguished Olympic Games to be hosted. For the time being, we’re excited to launch our arcade game soon of the most popular sport in the world, soccer.

It’s an easy-to-pick-up game, alluring because of its competitive and addictive play-to-earn nature, which can attract millions of unexposed audiences to blockchain technology.

With a team of entrepreneurs, graphic artists, and game developers from different countries, we will lead this huge project to create massive value in the cryptocurrency space.

Gaming and the future

Gaming has traditionally been a one-sided relationship, filling the owners’ pockets, while players are left to constantly exhaust real-life resources (e.g., time and money) to enjoy their pastime. Of course, nobody forces you to play, but what if we could create a gaming infrastructure that is fun and rewarding beyond the virtual environment?

As one of the few creative platforms pushing this new concept of play-to-earn on the Solana blockchain, the introduction of the Hoglympics allows gaming to be more than just a recreational activity. Many of the play-to-earn games we have today have their metaverses with native cryptocurrencies used for transactions and to receive in-game assets and rewards. The Hoglympics game is a unique addition to this trend by incorporating DeFi and NFT principles into its functioning, resulting in an immersive and extremely rewarding metaverse.

Gameplay

A clash between Hogs!

Build the ultimate Hoglympics soccer team and rise through the League System, earning our token in the process, contending in future tournaments, and attaining the recognition to participate in the annual championship.

Your classic game starts with selecting 4 Hogs per team, each playing a different position. The following roles are available per team: Goalkeeper, Defender, Midfielder, or Striker. A game typically lasts for ten minutes, consisting of two halves, with plenty of turns for both parties. Each game must conclude with a winning team! Otherwise, a penalty shoot-out will serve as the deciding factor.

Matches are played between the two teams in Stadiums, owned by players, and can be watched by other players, known as viewers. So, players own Hogs and Stadiums in the form of NFTs, and the in-game currency is known as Hoglympics token ($HOGS). Players who secured a position as one of the top-ranked players are rewarded with a repetitive income stream in $HOGS: the higher your rank, the greater the reward.

Game Modes

  1. Training: Training mode to hone your Hog’s general skills.
  2. Hognations: A normal 4v4 match in which multiple players control each team while representing a country. Win points on behalf of your country and earn in the process. Which country has earned the most points after the season ends? Your contribution certainly won’t go unnoticed!
  3. Ultimate Team: A highly competitive game mode where each player controls their entire team. Winning games consistently awards you special League Points (LP) and a higher league over time, introducing greater rewards per game that you win an

Play-to-Earn Model and Vision

As mentioned before, you can use our platform to earn both actively and passively. Stadium owners are rewarded for each game they host, while viewers influence the gameplay by rooting for a team and increasing morale. Nevertheless, the most significant incentive to earn of all will be to enter the Hoglympics yourself.

When a game is finished, $HOGS is split and distributed from the treasury among the winning team (75%), the Stadium owner (17.5%), and the viewers who have rooted for the winning team (7.5%).

Our goal is to accomplish a truly decentralized player-owned economy by empowering the player base with governance over the game’s platform and treasury using a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO), where $HOGS plays a central role.

Hogs (Players)

Enhance your Hogs’ skills and in-game performance by training them as normal athletes do.

Each Hog comes with the four Ps of inherent (trainable) skills:

  1. Precision: The higher the Precision score, the greater the ability to score a goal from a distance.
  2. Passing: The higher the Passing score, the greater the chances of making successful passes.
  3. Physicality: The higher the Physicality score, the greater the chance of successfully tackling and defending.
  4. Pace: The higher the Pace score, the greater the ability to receive the ball and keep it.

New Hogs are born with an initial and a maximum potential score for each ability. Depending on the rarity of the Hog, consequently, it will naturally have a high initial score for any of its abilities and/or a high potential score.

A Hog can improve their score by consuming in-game items or entering the training mode.

There are three ways of obtaining Hog NFTs:

  • NFT drops
  • In-game marketplace
  • Breeding season

As a player, to participate in all three game modes, you’re required to own at least 4 Hog NFTs, albeit a single NFT asset is enough to train your Hog and/or become involved in a Hognations brawl, i.e., a match where multiple players are controlling each team.

$HOGS Token

The in-game currency fueling the game’s economy, Hognomics token (better known as $HOGS), lies at the foundation of our metaverse.

Players use $HOGS for breeding new Hogs, constructing new Stadiums, and purchasing consumable items in the game’s store relevant to Hog owners, Stadium owners, and viewers.

You will be able to obtain $HOGS by buying it from the DEX, opening loot boxes, completing missions, winning matches (including special events), being a viewer, or hosting games in Stadiums.

League System

Hoglympics has a ranking system called the League system. In basic terms, it enables people to play with their equals in a competitive environment. Additionally, it incentivizes them to become better players and enjoy the benefits of playing at a higher rating. The League system is based on six tiers that indicate players’ expertise level: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinium, Diamond, and Master. Players within each division are ranked using a system of points called League Points (LP).

Every time a player wins a match, LP is earned, and the distance between the next tier gets closer. For now, the League system itself only applies to the Ultimate Team game mode. Hognations game mode uses a separate leaderboard, but players aren’t necessarily playing against opponents of equal skill. Playing Hognations game mode will be rewarding in its own way but less competitive.

The Six Hoglympics Tiers

8,888 Rare NFTs

Hogs is a collection of 8,888 unique and 3D-designed Solana tokens living on the Solana blockchain, with every NFT being more fierce than the other to grow into a Hoglympic champion. A Hog’s rarity impacts their skills and capacity to perform special moves in a game.

Clearly, Hog NFTs aren’t just praised because of their handsome looks. Use your Hogs’ strengths to form a well-balanced team worthy of contesting in our upcoming P2E Hoglympics game and earn in the process.

Hogs Club
When you buy a HOG, you’re not simply buying an avatar or a provably-rare piece of art. You are gaining membership access to a club whose benefits and offerings will increase over time. Your HOG can serve as your digital identity and open digital doors for you.
