Utilitarian value #
NFTs of this collection have the following utilitarian functions:
Impact of NFTs on Cattle #
All game NFTs of the Taurus Guard series, which are on a wallet linked to the Metropolis or Enclave game server, affect the account’s built cowshed.
Impact on the barn:
- +0.2% to the recovery rate after mating, reducing the period of readiness for mating in cows (no more than 10%).
- Increases the weight of newborn calves in the barn by x%, where x is the weight of the NFT in the wallet (maximum by 100%, that is, 2 times).
The beneficial effect on the barn begins to take effect if the NFT is continuously on the wallet linked to the game for at least a week. Besides, the wallet must be linked to the game server for at least a week. Please note that every time an NFT is moved to another wallet or smart contract address, or an NFT is put up for sale, the “hold” time for that NFT is reset to zero.
In-game bonus fund for NFT owners #
A new tab in property valuation has been created for NFT Taurus Guard - NFT weight. The weight of each NFT from the moment of acquisition will be equal to 0. After the NFTs have been on the wallet linked to the game for 7 days, at the next checkout time they will appear in the “NFT Weight” subsection and will have a weight of 1. This value remains unchanged (as long as the NFT is on the wallet). You can view all your NFTs, as well as the time they remain on your wallet, in the “NFT” section (“Investor” → “NFT”). Please note that data on new NFTs can be updated up to 24 hours.
Payments to NFT owners are made once a week, every Friday, even if the valuation is below average.
The fund is formed from the following sources:
- 10% of state farm income when selling or breeding cattle by players.
- 10% of state farm income when processing manure.
- The Commissioner reserves the right to additionally fill the fund from other sources that are state income.
To participate in payments from this fund, the NFT must continuously be on the wallet linked to the game for at least a week. Besides, the wallet must be linked to the game server for at least a week. Please note that every time an NFT is moved to another wallet or smart contract address, or an NFT is put up for sale, the “hold” time for that NFT is reset to zero.
Note! Your account will not receive the payout amount allocated to it from the Active Players Fund if, at the time of payout, your account:
- There are hungry clones (with negative stamina);
- There are unrepaired settlements;
- There are unrepaired principalities;
- There are unrepaired wonders;
- There are unrenovated properties;
- There is a negative balance of gold coins or Clonecoins.
Bonus for selling NFTs on the secondary market #
Principle of fund formation #
The cryptocurrency bonus fund for NFT owners “Guardian Bulls” (Taurus Guard) consists of the following deductions:
- On an ongoing basis, 25% of the copyright interest received by the game administration from sales of NFTs of this collection on the market (in other words, royalties).
- An additional 25% of the royalty received by the game administration from sales of NFTs of this collection on the market (in other words, royalties) until the creation of GoldenClone DAO.
Thus, until the creation of the GoldenClone DAO, 50% of the royalties will be distributed among all owners of the Guardian Bull NFTs. After the implementation of DAO, NFT owners of this collection will retain a share of 25% of the royalty.
Staking points calculation method #
Twice a month, the fund is distributed to all NFTs that are continuously and immobile in non-custodial wallets, that is, not for sale on marketplaces or other smart contracts. The size of the payment depends on the Staking points parameter, which can be viewed for each of your NFTs on the website of a special decentralized application.
Immediately after purchase, the Staking points of your NFT will be 0. Each day the NFT is in the wallet will earn Staking points. The increase is divided into 2 periods:
First 10 days #
During the first 10 days, 100 staking points are added every day. Thus, in the first 10 days, 1000 staking points are reached.
Subsequent days #
Subsequent days, 1 staking point is added per day. Thus, in 510 days (including the first 10) the maximum size of 1500 staking points will be reached.
Rarity Booster calculation method #
Rarity Booster is an aggregated stat calculated based on HowRare and MoonRank ratings. It can take values from 0% to 100% for each of the methods for calculating collection value. Therefore, the maximum possible value of this additional bonus is 200%. This bonus depends on the position of a particular NFT in the HowRare and MoonRank ratings, which are described in detail in the “Collectible Value” section.
The bonus amount can be calculated using the formula:
Rarity Booster = (Total NFTs - Your NFT HowRare Rating + 1) x 0.01 + (Total NFTs - Your NFT MoonRank + 1) x 0.01
Let’s look at a specific example - Taurus Guard #5783. This Taurus currently has a HowRare rating of 1054 and a MoonRank of 1978. This means that the formula for calculating the Rarity Booster bonus will look like this:
Rarity Booster = (10,000 - 1054 + 1) x 0.01 + (10,000 - 1978 + 1) x 0.01 = 89.46 + 80.22 = 169.70%
Fund distribution #
The entire accumulated fund is distributed equally to all Staking points increased by Rarity Booster. These payments (minus the blockchain transaction fee) will be sent to the wallets of NFT owners in the Solana cryptocurrency twice a month - at the beginning and in the middle of the month.
Please note that any time you move the NFT to the address of another wallet or smart contract, or put the NFT up for sale, the accumulated Staking points bonus will expire.
If the size of the cryptocurrency fund is less than 0.25 SOL, the fund continues to accumulate until the next payout cycle.

Additional bonuses for collectible traits #
Each NFT has a set of different properties, which are described in detail in the “Collectible Value” section. It is planned that in the future these properties will be compared with various events in the real world (sports championships, Olympics, increases in the price of fiat and cryptocurrency assets, etc.). And under favorable circumstances, these NFT properties will enhance the bonuses described above. The total increase cannot exceed 20% of the base increase of your NFT.
For example, NFT increases the weight of newborn calves by 1%. The additional bonus of this NFT cannot be higher than 0.2%.
This functionality will make collections even more attractive to players and will contribute to the growth of NFT sales on the secondary market, as well as create an additional connection between the virtual and real world. Thanks to this functionality, players will be more interested in various events in the world around them and gain new information.
