Idea: Play Snake the videogame as a way to earn small amounts of Viper.
Credit: a similar idea was first proposed here: Game Idea for VIPER, but I suggest it as a way to earn small amounts of Viper rather than spend it.
- It gives the average person an easy / fun way to get into Crypto: earn some viper by playing Snake and then swap it out for some One, Link, 1Matic etc etc…
- ViperSwap needs a gimmick that sets it apart from the other swap sites.
- It would be a very marketable gimmick that would be immediately familiar to everyone. (I could imagine a news program doing a feature on “the growing world of crypto” showing this as a light hearted example)
- Ultimately the goal would be to bring in new people, to grow the community / site.
- Snakes are on-brand.
- Random Viper tokens appear after you reach level 5 in the game and you eat them up with your snek.
- Hit “Claim” and the tokens hit your wallet, just like staking.
- The probability of a Viper token appearing could increase as you go up each 5 levels.
- The overall emission rate of Viper tokens to the game could be fixed, and the probability of Viper tokens appearing would decrease as more people are playing the game.
- The game would need to be bot-proof
- The Viper emission rate to the game would need to be low, so as not to dis-incentivise the usual staking and ViperPit rewards, but also high enough to make the game worthwhile to play.
- It may want to be something that is only brought out occasionally for promotional events. That way you could have a fixed amount of Viper awardable which slowly runs out as people play.
