Zug, Switzerland, May 2 — Colizeum is pleased to announce its upcoming Colizeum (ZEUM) token generation event (TGE) on May 4, at 4 am UTC. 

The TGE will kick off on various centralized exchanges such as Gate.io, and decentralized exchanges (DEXs), such as Uniswap and PancakeSwap, ensuring fair access for all. 

Tokenholders will be able to stake ZEUM on Vault.inc from day one, with a staking pool of 18 million ZEUM tokens. 

Colizeum has completed initial DEX offerings through TrustPad, Infinite Launch, Gamestarter and MetaLaunch. All crypto investors, game developers and blockchain-gaming enthusiasts are encouraged to mark May 4 on their calendars. 

Colizeum is here to shake up more than $116-billion worth of the mobile gaming industry, providing a solution for all game developers to integrate the best blockchain monetization methods into any game quickly. The Colizeum SDK is a frictionless shortcut for mobile game developers to swiftly implement tokenized game modes and a play-to-earn economy without prior knowledge of blockchain development. 

Five games have already been onboarded to Colizeum’s game store, with Dystopia: Contest of Heroes as the first game to implement the platform’s SDK. The game received the Best Strategy Game of 2020 award by Huawei AppGallery and reached 1 million players. The blockchain version will bring the game to the next level, turning in-game assets into nonfungible tokens (NFTs) available on Colizeum.com in May 2022. 

Poli Pong, previously featured on the App Store as a Best New Game and Editors’ Choice, will also implement the Colizeum SDK, with other games to follow. 

In addition, the team welcomed Dota legend Wu Seng to its ranks to strengthen its appeal in the gaming industry. A new major partnership deal will be announced soon.

Colizeum is much more than a technological toolkit; it’s a unified economy that allows game developers to focus and not worry about monetization. Game developers can add blockchain monetization layers to traditional monetization — such as in-app ads and purchases — or build blockchain-only games and even metaverses. Coexistence with traditional monetization tactics and economics allows for the diversification and multiplication of monetization. In addition, the Colizeum ecosystem provides an extra alternative for developers to tap into a broader audience — monetizing the tier-three markets.

Unlike many other projects, Colizeum has come a long way in its development phase, and the beta of the full SDK will be released in June 2022. The first services for the SDK — staking and NFT minting — are completed. The bridge between the ERC-20 protocol and the BNB Smart Chain (BSC) network is deployed on AnySwap. 

Players looking to earn from playing will need a Player Card. Colizeum Player Cards are split into two types: Elite NFTs and Gladiator NFTs. Elite Player Cards consist of 5,000 single-edition NFTs whose owners will be the only ones able to mint Gladiator Player Cards. NFT holders will receive a never-before-seen utility to access the games published on the Colizeum platform and their earning potential. 

Strong support confirms the vision of the Colizeum team and how it aims to establish an interoperable environment with traditional mobile app stores to enhance the appeal of blockchain gaming. Major contributors include Tokenomik, Transactions Per Second, Genblock Capital, Axia8, Deribit, SevenX Ventures, LD Capital, Momentum 6, X21 Digital, AU21 Capital and others.

ZEUM staking rewards from day one 

Staking can be a great way to put ZEUM tokens to work and generate a passive income while holding on for the long haul.

However, the staking reward APY is dynamic. Here’s an example:

If there is only one person who stakes, they reap all the rewards from the chosen staking pool. As the amount of stakers increases, the APY decreases. To maximize rewards, it’s better to stake them from the very beginning.

Liquidity pool staking produces APY four times higher than a single-sided staking pool, which is good for long-term tokenholders and supporters. 

ZEUM stakers will be automatically enlisted for:

  • Surprise additional ZEUM token airdrops
  • Colizeum partner-token airdrops
  • Colizeum and its partners’ NFT drop whitelist spots
  • Higher income from playing games in the Colizeum game store
  • Exclusive, in-game quests and rewards from partner games

Furthermore, there will be two types of staking pools: a single-sided ERC20-protocol and BSC staking pool and a liquidity pool. 

On BSC, ZEUM-staked tokens will provide a liquidity pool for PancakeSwap. On the ERC-20 protocol, they will provide a liquidity pool for Uniswap.

Each staking pool’s minimum lockup period is six months, and the maximum is 12 months. The longer ZEUM tokens are staked, the larger the rewards will be.
