🍬 Functioning Sugar Cube mechanics

Sugar Cubes — fundamental in-game reward unit — completely reconstructs DeRace player reward mechanics by enabling rewards for the in-game activity.

Players can acquire Sugar Cubes mainly by completing daily/weekly/monthly missions. After collecting a required amount players can exchange their Sugar Cubes for NFT Chests and NFT Keys in the exchange shop.

Sugar Cube exchange can be found under the in-game wallet tab

By opening the Chest with a Key, player can acquire the in-game utility NFTs such as horse wearables which open new possibilities to enhance the gameplay.

Sugar Cube mechanics does not end here though. Players can also choose to burn any of their unwanted NFTs and in return receive Sugar Cubes. The NFT burn mechanism closes the loop and the Sugar Cube mechanics restart once again.

The complete Sugar Cube mechanics are already available in the test-net and are currently being trialed by our testers. They are scheduled to launch in the first DeRace revamp feature batch.
