FAQ
Our project is designed to empower players’ ownership through tokenization of characters — mayors

Owning a mayor will give you an opportunity to earn Vote$ through in-game quests and compete in elections.

Your mayors will evolve over time upgrading both their visuals and in-game stats.
We believe that today voting is one of the most popular examples to illustrate the potentials of Blockchain and Smart Contracts. Voting is a use case that is well aligned to the unique propositions of Blockchain technology.

There are some main principles of voting that should be in election process:
One man, one vote:

Every voter votes once and the voting system must be able to reconcile the total number of votes to the total number of voters and those who did not vote.

Transparency:

The vote counting process is fixed, rules are well established,known to voters and withstands public scrutiny.

Votes accurately recorded and counted:

Vote counting is consistent. Rules are cast in stone. Vote counts are auditable.

Reliability:

Voting system must be accurate and verifiable. Safeguards are in place to prevent frauds, accidents and security breaches.

All these principles are fully reflected in the core gameplay mechanics of the Mayors. The benefits of a successful secure and transparent online voting system based on DLT technology are clear.

The main concept of the game is the possession of NFT tokens of mayors, who act as game avatars. With their help, you can make several in-game interactions:

How to Play

?
Tasks allow you to get in-game currency that can be spent on participating in the mayoral elections of the city.
Each city is an interactive unit that has several indicators: the number of residents, the city bank and the current mayor.
Elections are held once a week in each city according to its own schedule.

Any player can participate in the elections according to the following principle: every player who wants to run for mayor is trying to buy votes — thereby making a bet with the game currency. At the moment, the cost of the Vote$ is fixed, but in future updates it is planned to add scaling of the cost depending on the development of the city. Bets are accepted for 12 hours, after which elections are held on the basis of an online pseudo-random number generator: the more votes a voter tried to buy, the more chances he has to win. For example, if voter A tried to buy 60 votes, and voter B 40, and there are 100 residents in the city, then their chances will be 60 to 40 respectively.

The development of the city is influenced by the number of buildings in it.

When one of the player's avatars becomes the mayor, this avatar is no longer available to complete tasks, but he has the opportunity to construct buildings in the city and receive certain bonuses from them, as well as he receives the entire bank of the city, which is formed from the number of residents multiplied by the cost of votes.

To play our game, a player must have at least one unique NFT token — the Mayor. One of the key features of the game is that Mayors are not just static game avatars who act as executors of the player’s will, they have their own characteristics that develop over time. In the real world, a person needs to have a large number of characteristics to successfully compete for the title of mayor of the city — competence, trustworthiness, charisma, courage, imagination, and intelligence.

However, in our game we decided to leave only two similar attributes that, in our opinion, most affect a person’s chances of being elected Mayor —popularity and charisma.

Mayors
Popularity

Popularity is responsible for the cost of trying to buy a voter's vote. The higher the popularity of the Mayor, the cheaper the voters are willing to sell their votes to him.

Charisma

Charisma is responsible for the bonus, which is additionally awarded to the player for completing tasks by his Mayor.

The game also has an achievement system. By performing certain actions on the global map or completing tasks, the Mayor can get one of these achievements — for example, by winning the elections of one city 5 times. Getting achievements, the Mayor evolves, getting improved characteristics and visual.

There are 3 stages of evolution of NFTs are possible in Mayors (GEN0, GEN1, GEN2). With every stage of evolution of your NFTs charisma grows and you start to earn more and more Vote$.

Every good mayor wants to do something useful for the city and leave his mark on city government. This can be done through city building.

Buildings

Buildings can be built by players in the city in which they are become the Mayor due to the period of mayoring. The construction of each building costs a certain number of building vouchers that can be earned by staking a game token Vote$. Players receive additional bonuses, such as:

Additional percentage of income for the mayoral period
Percentage of free votes in the next election in that city
Passive income from the city during the month

All buildings that the player erects are saved indefinitely and will be assigned to him. That is, if you became Mayor and built several buildings, then the next Mayor of the city will not receive any bonuses from them, he will need to create his own buildings, but if after him you win the election again, then all the buildings that you built before will remain and you can continue to receive benefits from them.

Dynamic NFTs Leveling up

Mayors has an upgrade system that allows the player to improve their Mayors NFT. Mayors NFT potentially have 3 evolution stages (GEN0, GEN1, GEN2). Each evolution stage gives you an enormous bonus for tasks cost and election process. You can increase the stage of evolution by completing achievement. When selling or transferring to another wallet, the progress of mayors is not reset. All upgrades are strictly on chain. Types of tasks to perform:

GEN 0 GEN 1 tasks
GEN 1 GEN 2 tasks
Participate in the election of the mayor of the city N times
Become the mayor of the city N times in a row
Become the mayor of a city N times
Take turns to become the mayor of all cities of the country M
Become the mayor of one city N times
Win elections in which at least N players participated
Become the mayor of N cities in the same country
Take turns to become the mayor of N any cities in the country M
Win an election with no more than 25% of the votes
Win an election with no more than 25% of the votes
Construct a building in the city N times
Build a total of N buildings
Gamemode

The new gamemode which we are developing while supporting the main game is a mobile game based on the card battler mechanics. Here you should put your team of Mayors together to participate in debates against other players:

Your decisions affect the debates' outcomes. Give a long speech to capture the audience's attention and support or embarrass your opponent with an insulting statement — it's up to you to decide which path leads to victory in debates.
Use special skill cards to overpower your opponent.
In our game, appearance has a direct impact on success in debates as each element of the Mayors' clothing gives them unique skills. Build your strategy based on the items you get and the set of skills available to you, or gain the skills you need by swapping Mayors with other players.
Every item is important. In debates, the first impression is always made by the speaker's appearance.
In debates, more experienced Mayors have more chances to win 'cause they always have a card up their sleeve. The higher the Mayor's level, the more unique skills are available to them.
Level up Mayors in the first gamemode to get the advantage over your opponents once the second gamemode starts.

Scalability has always been a core issue in the blockchain space and play-to-earn gaming appears to have conceived its own solution. The Scholarship Model have been extremely successful and demonstrates a clear path forward. It shows how to get NFTs into the hands of players without relinquishing ownership of the asset. The option to lend an NFT is a great feature to introduce scholarships into our gaming community.

In Mayors we will enable renting Mayors NFTs to players so they get started, or just try out our game if the cost of entry is too high for them.

Lending assets

То give players the chance to acquire new NFTs after they mint an open marketplace willbе launched. Players can place bids and put up ask prices for the NFTs and start trading. The Mayor's game will take a small royalty оn each transaction. All transactions оn the marketplace will bе made in the Vote$ token once it is released.
Each transaction will be charged by 1% fee.

Marketplace

In Mayors you can stake Vote$ to earn in-game bonuses. Staking a game token a player can receive construction vouchers (off-chain game currency). The minimum deposit for staking is 500 Vote$, for staking 500 Vote$ the player receives 1 construction voucher per day. These vouchers are used as in-game currency for building constructions in cities during mayoring time. Each building gives a certain type of bonus.

Staking Vote$

Here you can find all the details about Mayors tokenomics. Mayors Game token Vote$ is a ERC-20 token with a fixed supply. Vote$ is used to make purchases on the marketplace, take part in GamePlay and Staking.

Tokenomics

Demand for Vote$ is driven by its utility in the gaming experience and attractive NFT rewards.

Dynamic Avatar is a way to apply a protocol for modifying existing NFTs. NFT is a smart contract, in our case, inheriting IERC721. It allows you to create unique tokens, the possession of which is a value in itself.

Technology

The NFT modification protocol allows not to make the token static, but to update and expand both its characteristics and functionality. To do this, we use two technological solutions:

Flexibly upgradable smart contracts using upgrades registry.

It allows us to update and expand the functionality of all system components: upgrades registry itself, NFT factory, NFTs themselves, etc. Each component in the system has a proxy contract and many upgrades, with the help of which the proxy contract receives updated functionality and characteristics.

NFT inventory

NFT inventory — a smart contract that deploys to each minted token, which can only be managed by the owner of the NFT. This smart contract is linked to the token and can have absolutely any necessary functionality. Thus he can aggregate various assets: tokens, nft, etc.

This allows us to create dynamic avatars using saved inventory assets to generate unique images. The applicability of the technology is not limited to this, we can create inventories for games, DAOs, etc. The inventory can also implement unique logic if more than just asset aggregation is needed.

Future updates

The main goal for us in the future is to keep our players entertained. That's why we are planning to add brand new engaging game modes that will allow you to earn and compete with others using really deep game mechanics.

The first major update will bring you real co-op experience. We are planning to add political parties in which players will be able to conquer the globe and receive additional bonuses for their efforts. The political parties update will come with new buildings, new gameplay mechanics and a few secrets we are not ready to announce yet. Political parties' introduction will challenge players' skills of cooperation and diplomacy. Try to conquer the globe and defeat your political opponents. The mechanics will allow everybody to stay competitive, so you can join a huge gaming guild or try to rule the country together with your friends.

The second major update will bring you a huge new game mode. Every mayor will be able to start building his own city using the core mechanic of idler. This gamemode will be tightly connected with the token farming mechanic and will make a fundamental change in the game. In your own city you will be able to attend political events, persuade people to stand by your side, expand your city, compete with others on the huge global map, trade and even more. Expanded opportunities for interaction with the city will not let you get bored, as a large number of development paths will be available, which will help to significantly increase the amount of game currency earned in the future and open up new ways to passively receive it. You will need to plan your actions competently and choose the right buildings to achieve maximum effect! We also plan to introduce the possibility of token staking into the game, which will give even more opportunities.
