Harmony

How do I get from Serendale to Crystalvale?

If you are currently a DeFi Kingdoms player on Harmony, one of the biggest questions you probably have right now is “How do I get started on DFK Chain?”

Good news! For those of you who are already in the game, you already know that Dockmaster Maria is the one to visit when you need to bridge, and the Serendale Docks will host an in-game bridge to DFK Chain.

Step 1: Bridge JEWEL

JEWEL is used for gas fees on DFK Chain, so the first thing you will want to do is bridge some JEWEL. A protocol is in place to automatically exchange JEWEL bridged onto the DFK Chain for the native gas token. No special action is needed on the part of players to handle this.

Step 1.5 (optional): Bridge xJEWEL

On launch day, the only incentivized Liquidity Pool available will be JEWEL <> xJEWEL, so if you would like to stake for CRYSTAL, you will also need to bridge xJEWEL in a separate transaction.

If you do not yet have any xJEWEL, or would like more, you will first need to visit the Jeweler and deposit the appropriate amount of JEWEL, which will swap it for xJEWEL. Remember that LP pairs must be made with equal values of each token, so you can decide how much JEWEL you want to stake and deposit 50% of that value to the bank to get an equivalent amount of xJEWEL.

If you have not yet added the xJEWEL token to your Metamask wallet, and would like to see how much you have available, the official token address is: 0xA9cE83507D872C5e1273E745aBcfDa849DAA654F.

Make sure that you have bridged enough JEWEL to pair in equal amounts with your xJEWEL while still leaving you some for gas fees.

Step 2: Travel to Crystalvale

Once you have bridged your JEWEL and xJEWEL, click on "Travel to Crystalvale" and you will be guided to configure your wallet for DFK Chain.

Step 3 (optional): Stake

After you have bridged your assets, you can also travel to Crystalvale through the Docks. From there, the process to stake your assets is the same as the process in Serendale. Pay a visit to Druid Ulfur in the Marketplace to pair your JEWEL and xJEWEL, and then deposit them in the Ice Gardens.

Note: It is important to never use all of your JEWEL, as it is needed in order to pay for transactions on the blockchain. Therefore, if you do not have any JEWEL, you can not make any transactions.

Avalanche

How do I get started if I'm already an AVAX user?

If your wallet is already configured for Avalanche, your first stop will be to game.defikingdoms.com to enter the Outpost.

Step 1: Bridge

At the Outpost you will meet with Snow Sage Ellia. With her you will find a bridge that allows you to move your AVAX to DFK Chain. The Outpost also has a DEX in case you need to swap other assets unsupported by the bridge, either to AVAX or directly to JEWEL. Click on "Get Started" and she will guide you through your different options to travel to Crystalvale as well as help you to configure your wallet for DFK Chain.

Step 2: Swap for more JEWEL

Once you bridge, you will receive a small amount of gas for free, so that you can swap your AVAX for JEWEL (at the Marketplace) to use for future gas fees as well as to stake for CRYSTAL.

Step 3 (optional): Pair and Stake

On launch day, the only incentivized Liquidity Pool available will be JEWEL <> xJEWEL, so if you would like to stake for CRYSTAL, you will also need to swap JEWEL for xJEWEL in the Marketplace. Remember that LP pairs must be made with equal values of each token, so you can decide how much JEWEL you want to stake and swap 50% of that into xJEWEL.

Pay a visit to Druid Ulfur in the Marketplace to pair your JEWEL and xJEWEL, and then deposit them in the Ice Gardens to start earning CRYSTAL.

Note: It is important to never use all of your JEWEL, as it is needed in order to pay for transactions on the blockchain. Therefore, if you do not have any JEWEL, you can not make any transactions.

Everywhere Else

How do I get started if I am new to crypto or coming from another chain?

If you are new to the world of cryptocurrency, but you've been hearing a lot about DeFi Kingdoms and this new DFK Chain launch, the first step you will want to take is to go to https://game.defikingdoms.com.

From there, you will be prompted to create either a Coinbase Wallet or Metamask Wallet.

After you have installed your wallet, you will be given the option to visit either Serendale or Crystalvale. If you choose to enter Serendale, your wallet will be configured for Harmony and allow you to buy ONE.

For those who are eager to enter Crystavale, you will be brought to the Outpost so that you can buy AVAX. At the Outpost you will meet with Snow Sage Ellia. With her you will find a bridge that allows you to move your AVAX to DFK Chain. The Outpost also has a DEX in case you need to swap other assets unsupported by the bridge, either to AVAX or directly to JEWEL. Click on “Get Started” and she will guide you through your different options to travel to Crystalvale as well as help you to configure your wallet for DFK Chain.

Once you bridge, you will receive a small amount of gas for free, so that you can swap your AVAX for JEWEL to use for future gas fees as well as to stake for CRYSTAL.

On launch day, the only incentivized Liquidity Pool available will be JEWEL <> xJEWEL, so if you would like to stake for CRYSTAL, you will also need to swap JEWEL for xJEWEL in the Marketplace. Remember that LP pairs must be made with equal values of each token, so you can decide how much JEWEL you want to stake and swap 50% of that into xJEWEL.

Pay a visit to Druid Ulfur in the Marketplace to pair your JEWEL and xJEWEL, and then deposit them in the Ice Gardens to start earning CRYSTAL.

Note: It is important to never use all of your JEWEL, as it is needed in order to pay for transactions on the blockchain. Therefore, if you do not have any JEWEL, you can not make any transactions.

Avalanche

Avalanche subnet technology provides a way for projects to section off a group of Avalanche validators and commission them to validate additional blockchains outside of Avalanche’s primary 3 chains (P, X, C chains). By commissioning a subnet, DeFi Kingdoms is able to run and manage our own proprietary blockchain. DFK Chain combined with Avalanche Subnet infrastructure will unlock new potential for DeFi Kingdoms.

CRYSTAL

CRYSTAL acts as the main token of value in Crystalvale, giving it utility above and beyond that of a regular coin. It can be spent to purchase and mint Hero NFTs, swapped on the in-game DEX, staked for fee sharing, pooled for liquidity, and applied to applicable governance votes.

DFK Chain

DeFi Kingdoms Blockchain is an EVM compatible blockchain that will be validated by our subnet and uses the proof of authority / proof of stake consensus algorithms developed by Ava Labs. It is our vision that DeFi Kingdoms Blockchain will become a go to location for community members and projects to launch GameFi and other blockchain gaming experiences in conjunction with our primary offering of DeFi Kingdoms: Crystalvale. We are pioneering this Initial Subnet Offering with Ava Labs and plan to expand the blockchain metaverse with DeFi Kingdoms as the provider of such utility.

JEWEL

When DeFi Kingdoms: Serendale launched on Harmony, the JEWEL token launched alongside it, playing the same part for Serendale as CRYSTAL does in Crystalvale. Additionally, JEWEL is used for gas fees on the DFK Chain, where the gameplay transactions for Crystalvale take place.

Docks

As already seen in Serendale, DeFi Kingdoms: Crystalvale will utilize the Docks zone as an in-game interface that taps into bridging services. Although the Outpost zones assist in the initial onboarding to DFK Chain, The Docks will be the ongoing zone for all things related to moving tokens on and off chain, including fiat on/off ramps.

Marketplace

The Marketplace is the decentralized exchange of DeFi Kingdoms. Here you can purchase and sell tokens at current exchange rates. You can also become a liquidity provider by interacting with Druid Ulfur. Other resources that can be earned via Quests will be tradable on the Marketplace too.

Ice Gardens

In each realm, the Gardens is a place to stake liquidity pool tokens to receive a share of power token emissions. In the Ice Gardens of Crystalvale, CRYSTAL emissions are on offer for those who stake.

Jeweler

The Jeweler accepts "deposits" of power tokens, allowing the player to participate in fee sharing and to cast governance votes. Players can deposit or withdraw at any time, in any amount, with no withdrawal fees. When they withdraw, all rewards are withdrawn as well and are fully unlocked and instantly available.

Anyone who has staked liquidity in the JEWEL/xJEWEL Crystalvale ice garden by the time emissions began on Mar 31, 10am EDT, qualified for this CRYSTAL airdrop.

This specific airdropped CRYSTAL will be partially locked, with 5% unlocked at the time of the airdrop and the remaining 95% unlocking linearly over one year. As such these particular locked CRYSTALs unlock a full year earlier than most other locked CRYSTALs from this epoch. In preparation for this, we have minted these CRYSTALs and stored them in a multisig, ready for airdrop.

An xCRYSTAL snapshot will take place once every day between Apr 4, 2022 and ends at 11:59pm EST on Apr 25, 2022. If you have an average balance of 10 xCRYSTAL within those 21 days, you will be entered into this Crystalvale Gen 0 Hero raffle.

Each wallet can only win once and the entry calculation will be an average over the time period.

Each 10 xCRYSTAL will earn 1 ticket for the raffle. There will be a multiple applied for milestones, adding 0.1x to each 100 xCRYSTAL. So at 100 xCRYSTAL, tickets awarded would be 10 x 1.1 or 11 tickets, 200 xCRYSTAL gets 24 tickets, 300 xCRYSTAL gets 39 tickets... and so on.

100 Crystalvale Gen 0s will be given away in this raffle.
