Welcome to this post, where we are going to see how and how much you can earn playing DEFI Kingdoms, the DEX which is also a game on the Harmony network.
DEFI Kingdoms is a combination of DEX, decentralized Exchange on the Harmony network, with functions of a play to earn game with heroes and options to get different tokens.
Before going any further, it is worth mentioning that this game, like most of them, is still under development, so there may be changes in aspects such as game features or price depending on when you are reading this. So keep this in mind and once you finish the article, I recommend you to take a look at the official DEFI Kingdoms website.
How you can win
At the moment there are different ways to play and get tokens in DEFI Kingdoms, but it is important to note that the heroes, where the whole play to earn format of this platform revolves, will have more features in the future such as PVP, which is still under development. So, it is very likely that what you get now with a hero will be less than when the game is more developed and they have more functions and uses.
With that said, what we are going to need is a hero, which you can buy in the tavern or tavern with JEWEL. Currently this is the only way to buy a hero, in the tavern’s Marketplace. With a purchased hero, we currently have different options.
The first is to use your hero in the quest or mission. If we go to the map, in the castle where there is a fountain and click you will see the quest. With a cost of 5 energy, and you can do 5 quests at once if you have the maximum energy. The energy is recharged by 1 every 20 minutes. So every 8 hours, you can do 5 quests with a hero. The quests or missions give you experience for your hero and there is a chance to get DFKTEARS, the other currency of the platform that is needed to summon heroes. If you get DFKTEARS, you will receive them directly to your wallet and you can sell them for JEWEL or another currency. This is the main way you earn tokens in DEFI Kingdoms.
This was the first implementation to be able to use the heroes. At this time you can also do quests in the trades, which usually receive more experience and resources than in the castle quest. So I recommend you to use your heroes in the trade missions, and use each hero in the trade that corresponds to him. If you click on flip card, you will see in a different color a highlighted trade. That trade is the one that corresponds to that hero, and in the missions will consume less energy than doing missions of other trades, and therefore, you will get more resources and experience.
In the trades, there are 4 different trades, each with its different aspects, and with different rewards. But mainly, in all of them, you will receive items of that trade, DFKTEARS, and you can also get runes to level up your characters. The items you get can be exchanged for gold in the Marketplace, and for the moment, we have seen that they can be used to make potions in the future.
Another way is to rent your hero. Each hero has a limit of summoning or summoning other heroes, minus the gen0, and you can rent your hero for JEWEL so that other people can use it and earn extra JEWEL. Although keep in mind that, if for example you have 3 summon, you will only be able to rent your hero 3 times.
The other way is to use your hero and rent another hero to summon a new hero. The game has the mechanic of summoning new heroes by putting two heroes together, and if you only have one, it allows you to rent and pay JEWEL to use that hero. Note that summoning new heroes requires JEWEL and it is possible that the cost of summoning is higher than the tavern price of the hero you will get. Also, the type of hero you can get is quite random and therefore, always check the price in the tavern to see if it can be profitable to summon a new hero.
Lastly, it is farming with LP Tokens in gardeing. Here, you must create an LP, for example JEWEL-UST, and deposit it in Gardens to receive the annual % that you can see. Keep in mind that the annual %, there is an amount that are blocked tokens, and that until after 6 months or more you can not access these tokens, so the amount you get profitability discounting the blocked tokens is less than what you can see. Even so, it is another way to get more JEWEL tokens, providing liquidity, and with the risk that LP Tokens have with the impermament loss.
How much you can earn
Regarding what you can earn, the main source of income with your heroes comes from the trade missions, since the castle mission is currently less profitable. In the craft missions you can get items of each type of craft you perform, and these items can be sold in the Marketplace, either for gold, or in trade as any cryptocurrency.
Now, many of them don’t have much value in price, since they still don’t have a specific use, although we have seen that we will be able to use them to create potions soon. So, the items that you can get in crafting missions that are quite valuable or you can get a good amount, are the DFKTEARS, although with a very low price, or the runes to level up, which are DFKSHVAS, which are very difficult to get, but they have a higher price than the other items that you can get in your missions.
It is important to keep in mind that, doing trade missions, your trade level increases, and therefore the rewards you get in the future, will be higher than the ones you get just when you start. Therefore, you must also keep in mind that it is a game that rewards playing for a long time, and that at first it may not seem very profitable. But with time playing and leveling up, the rewards increase.
Renting your hero, if it has a good rarity and low generation, 3 or less can be another way to get some JEWEL and amortize your hero, although you can not use it later to summon if you want. But it is a way to get some JEWEL back.
Also, farming with LP Tokens can be very profitable, although it’s not so much a play to earn function, but rather farming like you can do in other DEFI platforms. Still, if you want to get more JEWEL tokens, it’s a great way to do it.
Finally, and in short, if what you want to know is the profitability that a hero can currently give you, it is quite little. If you have doubts about buying a hero or not, mention that when you buy a hero you should really see it as the use it will have in the future with new updates, and although now it may not be very profitable, with the new functions that will be added, heroes are very likely to become more and more important in the game. You can see how they are adding new features and updates and the future updates they will make in the game to get a better idea.
