What kind of community rewards are being offered?
There will be multiple reward programs, involving referrals, social media campaigns and contests over the coming months. Details will be coming in the next couple of weeks.
How much will a HashPuppy cost at the game launch?
This is something that has not yet been decided, and we will not announce it beforehand. But you should know we intend to keep the game affordable, and we will likely be following the model of in-game purchases rather than relying on a high initial cost for a user to get started in the game as a revenue stream.
Is info on community awards for a puppy out yet?
Information will be coming in January or February 2018.
How do I get a puppy token from community participation?
We want people to be active-- and positive-- contributors in our community. Many of you are actively answering questions for others, asking to contribute on the dev side and giving us solid ideas about the game and we're taking note of all of this! We'll have more solid guidelines in the coming months for the community rewards program.
Do you know how the token will map to a puppy? Will it be randomly generated when you claim your puppy or will the tokens all be made so they hold the code to make a specific puppy?
The pool of non-fungible tokens that will be the basis of the puppy DNA will be pre-generated. We haven't decided yet if the redemption will get you a specific puppy of choice from the pool based on visible appearance or whether it's luck of the draw.
Several new Ethereum blockchain games have appeared over the past few weeks. Why is HashPuppies taking so long?
Rather than rush to launch a "ponzi-with-pictures" cash grab on Neo, we've decided to build an actual game with interactive graphical gameplay. Neo is a different platform than Ethereum, and we want to demonstrate its advantages and show that blockchain gaming has real potential in the long run.
