TOWER: blending Free-to-Play gaming with Play-to-Earn
TOWER is a ERC-20 utility token for the successful Crazy Kings tower defense franchise of games developed and published by Animoca Brands, which includes the mobile games Crazy Kings and Crazy Defense Heroes, and an upcoming blockchain PC game.
TOWER is the basis of an initiative to blend traditional Free-to-Play (F2P) gaming with the Play-to-Earn (P2E) potential of blockchain gaming (see announcement of 16 March 2021). The goal of TOWER is to build a system that maintains balance and equitability in traditional Free-to-Play games while introducing the benefits of blockchain, including non-fungible tokens (NFTs), decentralized finance (DeFi), and governance. The philosophy and intent of TOWER are outlined here.
TOWER is currently earned by playing tournaments in Crazy Kings or by playing Crazy Defense Heroes to gain Experience Points for your avatar in the game.
TOWER is available on Uniswap where it can be swapped with ether (ETH), REVV, Lympo (LYM), GMEE, Atari Token (ATRI), and SUPER. TOWER is also listed on MXC paired with USDT, and will be listed on KuCoin paired with USDT and BTC starting on 20 April 2021.
