$GENKI Token

$GENKI token is a native, in-game currency designed to fuel the economics within Samurai Saga. It will be widely-used for future breeding of our upcoming NFT collection including Kaiju Monsters & Shinobi Samurais, and to enhance the gaming experience within the Samurai Saga game.

$GENKI token is created to incentivize holders of the Samurai Saga NFTs, players of the game, as well as the team within Samurai Saga. Our goal is to have $GENKI to be truly owned and operated by the community that plays and holds our NFTs.

The sole creators of the $GENKI tokens are from staking any NFT collection released by Samurai Saga. No pre-mine has ever been conducted and it is solely designed to have the NFT holders to become the ultimate beneficiary. The team at Samurai Saga is only incentivized based on the usage of the $GENKI tokens.

The maximum supply of $GENKI tokens is initially set to 300 million with 100% distribution to NFT stakers. Further down the roadmap, NFT stakers will experience a 20% reduction of earning $GENKI tokens over time to prolong the depletion of the token and make it readily available for users to earn through our upcoming play-to-earn game.

The $GENKI tokens do not have any buy and sell tax for the long-term growth of the tokenomics and listing in future exchanges.

Currently, $GENKI tokens will soon be available for purchase on Uniswap.

Max Supply: 300,000,000
Buy & Sell Tax: 0%

NFT Staking Rewards & Reduction Schedule

Early stakers of Samurai Saga’s NFT are rewarded with the highest amount of $GENKI tokens. However, over time, a reduction of the total rewards based on the selected period will take place to avoid depletion of the staking pool. In any given event when $GENKI token has reached its maximum supply, voting will be conducted to introduce halving or increase of supply. This decision will NEVER be made by the team at Samurai Saga alone and only will commence if the majority vote wins. (Over 60% is considered majority votes).

$GENKI Staking Rewards & Reduction Schedule

$GENKI Token Usage Distribution

As Samurai Saga’s roadmap is being developed and released, $GENKI will play a major role in advanced minting and purchases to further enhance the Samurai Saga gameplay and ecosystem.

As stated earlier, there are zero buy and sell taxes imposed on the $GENKI token for future listing on CEX. This is truly a community-driven token.

Furthermore, each time $GENKI is being used to mint or purchase assets within the Samurai Saga, the tokens will be distributed towards different parts of the ecosystem which is listed below:

  • 50% to Staking Pool
  • 20% to Development & Marketing
  • 15% to Play-To-Earn Pool
  • 15% to Team (Locked for 90 Days)
$GENKI Token Usage Distribution To Reward Holders

The team is only compensated based on the usage of $GENKI tokens and are incentivized to deliver within the Samurai Saga ecosystem. Moreover, the tokens will be locked for a full 90-day period.

Usage Of $GENKI Tokens

The $GENKI token plays a major role within the Samurai Saga’s economy. It is designed to incentivize holders and players to enhance their gaming experience while controlling the number of play-to-earn players. The $GENKI tokens will have multiple usage within the game and possibly in the real world.

$GENKI Tokens will be used in two different segments. The first is within NFTs and the second second will be widely used within the upcoming play-to-earn game.

$Genki Use Cases (Short-Term & Mid-Term)

$Genki tokens will be used extensively for future NFT collections. These NFT collections are released to increase the number of play-to-earn players and for users to build their assets within the ecosystem.

Minting Future NFT Collections: Kaiju Monsters

Each Kaiju Monster will have its own sets of utilities such as staking, unlocking a playable character and also an undisclosed utility that will be revealed prior to the collection release.

Future Undisclosed NFT Collections

More details to come.

Whitelist Marketplace

Samurai Saga is a true Web3 brand. NFTs are one of the core pillars to the ecosystem and as NFTs are still in their infancy of mass adoption, countless opportunities are being surfaced daily. At Samurai Saga, we have a designated team to outreach for collaborations so that our holders can be rewarded. These collaborations will consist of whitelist allocations specifically for our community for guaranteed minting. To truly reward our $GENKI holders, a marketplace is currently in development to allow our holders to use $GENKI to purchase whitelist spots for upcoming NFT projects that the team has secured for the community.

$Genki Use Cases (The Gaming Experience)

Upon releasing of the Samurai Saga play-to-earn game, a series of usages of $GENKI are designed to enhance the gaming experience and rewards to both players and holders of the Samurai Saga game.
