Planet IX was launched as a closed beta in July 2021, since then it has been possible for our users to acquire PIX from pack drops that have been announced weekly. We started out with enabling all users to buy a native off-chain token that we have called pEUR, since then we’ve been working tirelessly on bringing our entire platform on-chain.
Going forward, we will move all game assets on-chain and launch a new in-game currency called IX Token (IXT). From that point on, all transactions on Planet IX will be facilitated using this native ERC-20 Token through Polygon, a side-chain on Ethereum.
Phasing out pEUR
Up until today, the vast majority of our users have used up all their pEUR to buy PIX packs from our weekly drops. In our ambition to become the most comprehensive and interactive NFT-game that exists, we need to create a motivated and engaged group of first users. Therefore, we will premier those users that have actively bought PIX packs from their pEUR. Currently, the indicative ratio for the Airdrop looks as the following;
pEUR spent = 0.17 IX token
pEUR left in wallet = 0.017 IX token
Essentially, it will mean that every pEUR that has been converted to buy PIX, will receive 10x the amount of tokens in the airdrop, as opposed to non-converted pEUR still in balance on the user accounts.
When is the Airdrop?
On Saturday 20th November, we will open up for our users to claim their IX Token airdrop. On November 19th, a snapshot will be taken the from our user base that have PIX collected in their accounts.
The final conversion rate of pEUR → IX Token, will be dependent on the total amount of pEUR converted to PIX. November 15th will be the final date to deposit pEUR on Planet IX. After this, the final airdrop allocation will be summarized and announced.
How will I receive my IX Tokens?
In order to participate in the airdrop, users will be required to sign up to www.planetix.com and connect their Web3-wallet (preferably MetaMask).
We anticipate this to be one of the larger airdrops conducted to date, in terms of the sheer amount of token holders it will generate.
