UPDATE [11 May 2021]:
As many of our community members have pointed out, current gas prices are very high and may affect the upcoming TOWER Chest sale. We have therefore decided to postpone the first TOWER Chest sale and split it into multiple rounds that will begin at different times in order to accommodate fans in different time zones.
The first sale round will offer 10% of the previously announced supply (see below for the original announcement) and will start on Monday 17 May 2021, at 00:00 (12 a.m.) UTC. Other rounds will follow.
Summary of the updates:
Here at Animoca Brands we’ve been working hard on our bold experiment to blend free-to-play (F2P) with play-to-earn (P2E), and today we are proud to announce that the first TOWER NFTs chest sale is almost upon us!
While we put the finishing touches on the sale and prepare a full announcement we’d like to share some basic details with you.
There will be three categories of chests (Bronze, Silver, Gold), and they will be purchasable with TOWER. …

A crypto experiment on the future of F2P gaming
At Animoca Brands we fully and unreservedly embrace blockchain and play-to-earn as the future of gaming, but a major part of our income still derives from free-to-play (F2P) games, such as Power Rangers: Legacy Wars, Crazy Defense Heroes, and Snoopy’s Town Tale. As a result, we spend a lot of time considering the question of how to combine blockchain economics with F2P inflationary game design. We have come up with an experimental method to blend together elements of these two very different systems.
F2P and play-to-earn: different by design
