Sunflower Land

Dynamic Supply & Demand

The halvening is a mechanic that attempts to reflect real world supply and demand to determine the prices of in-game items. The purpose of the halvening is to mitigate inflation of the SFL token as more players onboard and promote engaging gameplay. Essentially, the more players that begin playing, then the harder it will be to earn SFL.
The next halvening period is when we reach a total supply of 40,000,000. For information about how close we are to the next halving head to​

What does the Halvening do?

When a halvening occurs, the buy and sale price of a range of in-game items becomes half the amount. This means that a seed which previously cost 1 SFL to buy would now cost 0.5 SFL.
This also means that a crop which could be sold for 2 SFL, now can only be sold for 1 SFL.

When does a Halvening occur?

The halvening and corresponding prices are based on the total supply of the token.
This includes circulating and tokens sent to the burnt address.
When the supply is less than 100, 000 farmers receive $0.02 when they sell a sunflower. On the other hand, when supply is between 100, 000 and 500, 000 farmers will only receive $0.01 when they harvest a sunflower.
Tokens in supply
SFL per Sunflower Harvested
Less than 100,000
Less than 500, 000
Less than 1, 000, 000
Less than 5, 000, 000
Less than 10, 000, 000
Less than 20, 000, 000
Less than 30, 000, 000
Les than 40, 000, 000
Less than 50, 000, 000
Every 10 million tokens half again.
A rough time estimate of the total supply threshold is made and announced to players. When this time is reached, the prices automatically update.

What prices are affected by the Halvening?

The halvening affects the SFL requirements for a range of resources.
  • Seed buy prices
  • Crop sell prices
  • Chickens
  • Treasure Island Bounties
  • Deliveries Price (The profit on each delivery will stay the same but overall price will decrease)

What prices are not affected by the Halvening?

The following items are not affected by the halvening.
  • Expansion
  • Tools
  • Shovels & Drills
  • Decorations
  • Farming Equipment
  • Goblin Retreat Items
  • Auctions
These items are the not designated as halving items as they are critical to the resource economy and provide a great burn of SFL in the game.


Why are tool prices halvening?

The team previously stated that Tool prices would be halved as well. After carefully considering and reviewing the balance of resources we have decided they no longer will be.
The team made some key changes to the requirements of tools 4–5 months ago where we reduced costs & have so far have found these successful for player progression and engagement. Wood and minerals have now become foundational resources for crafting and expansion in Sunflower Land, serving as reference points for the price of rare SFTs and in-game challenges. To avoid a drastic drop in the value of these core resources, we have decided to keep the price of tools the same.
We understand players may of used or sold these resources in anticipation for a price drop. We rarely make such decisions but in this case felt it was necessary to protect the resource economy.

Why is delivery profit not halving?

Deliveries have become a great mechanic which encourages players to diversify their resource management. We want to encourage this behaviour and hence have kept the incentives of a decent profit when completing deliveries.
The SFL profit also provides a great means for new and existing players to earn a consistent amount of SFL to craft tools, expand & collect decorations and equipment. With a lowered SFL earn on crops, deliveries ensures that players can still progress without getting frustrated.

Why is Treasure Island Bounty Halving?

Since the cost to acquire wood and minerals remain the same, why are bounty prices halving?
Resources found at Treasure Island will become staple resources used in crafting and a range of Sunflower Land quests. Since we now have a new utility for Treasure Island and the items found, we no longer need to rely on the SFL price of these items as much.
Treasure Island Items will continue to be used in different gameplay features, quests, auctions and rare mints.

How do I prepare for a Halvening?

Should you keep resources for upcoming events/rare items or do you want to sell them while the sale price is higher?
If you keep your resources, you may be advantaged with upcoming events or rare items that may be released. For instance, Auctions that may occur following the Halvening. On the other-hand, if you sell your resources before the halvening you will receive twice the amount of SFL.
Sunflower Land is a game and this part of the strategy is all up to you.
Good luck with your decision!
