January 2022 [Dev Blog] — Sailing on… To Polygon

Before the winter holidays, we decided as a team to take a break as we were starting to see the effects of burnout on our productivity and energy. As most of you know, when you’re part of the crypto world you can’t isolate yourself from the whole industry due to the still volatile nature of the market, so, although we were on a break we were still keeping an eye on the market.

We saw the markets crashing, the growing dislike of the mainstream public towards the incorporation of NFTs in video games, the increasing amount of carbon copy NFT projects being pushed by “promoters”, and it wasn’t exactly reassuring, to say the least.

Soon after the holidays ended we had a team meeting and reevaluated our goals and the future of the project. Taking into account the above-mentioned events we decided that we’re going to steer away from trying to hype a concept to actually creating it and hopefully provide value to the industry.

Coming back to a, now, bearish market, we adopted the ‘BUIDL’ mentality and started the development work on the blockchain and game fronts.

Let’s start with the changes and team announcements.

  • One of the most important changes is the fact that we decided to migrate the project from a BEP-20 governance token to an ERC-20 token and we choose to burn the whole amount of doubloons from BSC and mint them again on Polygon. This change was made due to several reasons but mainly it was because we wanted to work with ETH instead of BNB and Polygon seemed the most solid option for a layer-2 blockchain.

What we have on the horizon:

  • The Whitepaper is currently being updated to include the aforementioned changes, the founder’s sale tokenomics, and the roadmap update.
