Pegaxy is a play-to-earn blockchain horse racing game where players can own horse NFTs, earn PGX and VIS tokens while competing against eleven other racers on the Polygon network. Each race has various elemental variables such as wind, water, fire, and speed. Players can upgrade their Pega, feed and breed them, and rent and sell them.
Races have no fee to enter, and players must only have a Pega to participate. There are four rarities of Pega, they are called Bloodlines. Hoz is Rarest, Campona Rare, Klin is Uncommon, Zan is Common. They all have different visual designs. There can be rare titles attached to a Pega. Founding Pega are the first 5000 Pega that were created, not born. Crowned Pega are evolved Pega where the owner has to spend five Fabled Tokens to have a chance at evolving their Pega. Fabled tokens are obtained through a referral system. Every attempt has a probability of resulting in a Crowned Pega; they can be Single Crowned, Double Crowned, Triple Crowned, Quad Crowned, and Penta Crowned.
Pega have different gears that can be equipped. There are head, knee, chest, and backside gear, where each one gives a different attribute. Gear can have both a positive and a negative effect on stats. Pegas can be fed food. Foods are single-use items where they assist in an upcoming race. Effects of food last seven days and can not be removed once it is in place. Pega can be bought, sold, or rented. Players can also own a stadium in the game.
There is an annual tournament called Grand Dash Tournament where the top twelve racers with the highest stats from each class and each month race at the end of the year. There are monthly qualifiers that give minor rewards compared to the Grand Dash Final.
PGX token acts as a governance token that allows voting. It is paid as a fee while breeding, and at the marketplace while purchasing Pega. It can also be staked. VIS is awarded as an in-game reward, and can also be used instead of PGX while breeding.
I've never had a particular interest in horse racing, to be honest. The issues such as the fact that animals are looked at as racing vehicles, constantly trained, and mated according to their races caused me to seriously question horse racing in general. But now, I've found an all-digital horse race that does away with all that!
Hello all! Today, we will be on track at Pegaxy hippodrome! Pet your Pegas, scratch their wings, and feed them with screws before we start!
Pegaxy is a PvP horse racing simulator game that utilizes the Polygon network. The game allows players to make a profit according to their investment in the game, with the help of the game’s cryptocurrencies PGX, and VIS. The racing gameplay is currently in a simulation form with RNG (random number generator) system. That means you can earn a lot of money or be penniless. However, both the simulation form and the RNG system of the game will change in the future and become a 3D perspective game with skill and strategy-based factors instead of the RNG system.
In the Pegaxy, each race has 12 different Pegas who compete against each other to be in the top three. The golden medalist Pega takes the biggest prize out of the three. The other nine Pegas, however, have to try their luck in another race to win rewards. Pegas need the energy to keep racing, and energy refills by one each hour.
First of all, to start experiencing Pegaxy you need to connect your Metamask to the game. To do that, go to the game's official website and click the “PLAY NOW” button at the top right corner of the screen.
After clicking the button, you’ll be greeted with the page down below:
Connect your Metamask by clicking the “CONNECT METAMASK” button. However, do not forget to change your network setting to Polygon Mainnet on Metamask to connect your wallet, since the game only supports the Polygon network at the moment.
Upon connecting to Pegaxy through your Metamask, you will be able to see the marketplace on your screen. Congratulations, you’re officially connected to the game and ready to race now!
Fair enough! There are different ways to get involved and make a profit in the game; you can buy and own an NFT Pega to race, you can rent a Pega from other players to race, you can race as a scholar (you use someone else’s Pega and collect a certain percentage of the profit out of that Pega if it wins), you can mate two Pegas to create new a Pega to race, sell, or rent, and you can earn income from the ownership of a stadium (this feature, however, is not live at the moment). According to the budget that you want to invest in the game, you can start your Pegaxy adventure however you want! Sounds cool? Good! Then let’s get into the details of each option one by one.
As you can guess, buying a Pega is the most expensive option but the most profitable one in the long run (pun intended). First of all, Pega is your NFT asset, which means that it solely belongs to you. You can use your Pega on races, you can rent it to other players and earn passive income, or you can use your Pega to create a new Pega by breeding it. The choice is totally up to you since it’s your NFT asset.
This is the buying section of the marketplace. From here, you can buy your first Pega!
You want to own a Pega but you don’t want to spend too much money on it? Well, the game got you covered. You can simply rent a Pega from other players and can own it for a period of time. During that period, you can use that Pega to race for you. You won’t be sharing your profit if your Pega wins a race with the owner of the Pega. Based on the rental fee that you’ve paid, and your luck, you can earn your investment back. Luck plays a huge role in the game since the races run on RNG system.
This is the renting section of the marketplace. You can rent the Pega you want from here.
As a scholar, you don’t need to spend any money on the game. All you have to do is to go to the “RENTING” section and click the “SHARE PROFIT” tab on your screen. From there you can see all available Pegas for you to use as a scholar. The system basically goes like this; an owner puts his Pega on the marketplace to be used by other players, other players, in this case, it’s you, use that Pega to race. Whatever you make as a reward will be shared between you and the owner of that Pega. The amount that you will receive will be determined by the owner. Since the scholar system is high in demand, it’s hard to find an available Pega. However, you can get lucky if you refresh the page until you find one.
Only 3% of the profit?! Have a heart dude!
You want to be the master of the Pegas, huh? Well, good for you! To be a breeder in the Pegaxy, you need to have at least one male and one female Pegas. By breeding your Pegas, you can create little baby Pegas for you to own. There are certain factors that you might want to consider when you are breeding Pegas though. Since Pegas are unique NFT assets, they have unique characteristics too, such as breed types, and bloodlines. They have other statistics as well such as speed, strength, lightning, wind, water, and fire but since they are not implemented in the game yet, I will skip those for the time being.
In the game, there are four bloodlines for Pegas:
And again, there are five breed types for Pegas:
A legendary bad boy here.
You can use your Pegas to breed to a maximum of seven times. You won’t be able to use them for breeding after you reach the seven-times threshold.
After selecting your Pegas, you are ready to mate them!
The image above shows the breeding section. You need to choose a male and a female Pega to start the process. When you breed your Pegas, the newborn baby will carry its parents’ bloodline and breed type to a certain level. The outcome of the breeding process won’t be totally random, there are some charts for you to examine down below:
This chart indicates the blood type mixture.
I wish we could own a legendary breed by pairing two pacer Pegas, but unfortunately, that’s not the case.
Pegas are not baby-Pega factories, they need some time to recover.
If you are familiar with the breeding system now, let’s get into the money that you’ll have to spend to breed your magnificent Pegas:
|Breed Count||Breed Number||VIS Cost||PGX Cost|
I know, it’s not cheap. However, you can earn a lot of money by selling your newborn Pegas on the marketplace.
You can choose between VIS and PGX when you are breeding a pair. It depends on your financial situation or financial strategy.
Well, my licensed Pega jockey friend, the red one is PGX (Pegaxy), and the yellow one is VIS (Vigorus). They both have different purposes in the game; PGX is the governance token of Pegaxy while VIS is the game’s reward token. PGX can be used on breedings as a breeding fee, purchasing Pegas on the marketplace, staking, and the exchanges as a tradable cryptocurrency. While PGX has more usage areas in general, VIS is very important as well. You can earn VIS as a reward if you take place in the top three of a race, you can use VIS as a breeding fee if you don’t want to spend your PGX, or you can exchange your VIS on exchanges, just like PGX.
Right now, 1 VIS equals 0.12 USD, and 1 PGX equals 0.58 USD.
In addition to those two, Tether (USDT) is also available in the game. You can buy Pegas with USDT if you wish. I just want to remind you again that all of these actions are happening in the Polygon network.
Oh boy, where should I start? I am not going to lie, I have a very weak will when it comes to games of chance. Even if I win a dollar, I always come back for more. And in its current state, this game is a game of chance. So, I am not sure if I am a good example in this case.
I rented a Pega for a day and I paid 58 PGX (roughly 34 USD) for it. Then, I immediately started to race with my cool-looking Pega. I am not going to tell you how good or bad it was, but I’ll show the results to you so you can decide for yourself.
This is my boy, Meta GG. He is a Hoz (the rarest bloodline). Isn’t he handsome?
We queued for our first race. It was so exciting!
My son grew up and was competing in races. My eyes were a little teary, not going to lie.
He was like a bolt of lightning when the race started, was doing very well.
We lost our first race, we finished seventh. Not a big deal, it was our first try!
Then we immediately enlisted for another race. Something miraculous happened…
We finished third and won 26 VIS! Attaboy!
After this victory, we signed up for eight more races with Meta GG. You can find our all-time rankings down below:
I raced with Meta GG in ten races in total. He was very fast and dedicated at the beginning of each race, but towards the end, he was always behind. We came 3rd in 2 out of 10 races. We couldn't get into the top three in the rest. In total, we earned 52 VIS, which is about $6.24. I paid 58 PGX, roughly $33.62 for the Meta GG, which means that I have lost 27.38 dollars during my racing adventure. The bond we’ve established with Meta GG is much more valuable than money. I guess…
If you want to go on an adventure and compete for profit on Pegaxy, good luck! I hope you will get better results than me.
