🧲Blockchain Fundamentals

We are strong believers that Web3 will encourage emergent gameplay and unlock a new realm of possibilities around ownership and fun!

Most game items in Sunflower Land are stored on the Blockchain.

This creates an environment where players can have ownership of their in-game resources and opens up the possibility for our open source community to build experiences on top of these publicly available Blockchain tokens!

NFTs, SFTs & ERC20

While you play the game, all of the resources you gather reside in a temporary game server. When these items move to the Blockchain they became NFTs, SFTs and ERC20 tokens that can be owned, transferred and traded.

Store Data On Chain

We are a Web3 game and encourage players to store their progress on chain as frequently as possible. This ensures that total supplies, on chain leaderboards and Web3 services all have access to the latest game data.

Storing your data on the Blockchain also adds an extra level of security to your items.

When players reach a certain limit of items, we require that they store these items on the Blockchain for security and to ensure our on-chain supply reflect the real time game.

You must store your data on chain if you wish to use your items in Web3 only islands such as Goblin Retreat. These islands only read the data that has been stored on the Blockchain

How to store your data on chain?

To store your data on chain, you can click on Settings > Store Progress on Chain.

You are not charged any additional fee to store your data on chain, only the transaction gas fees for the Polygon Network

As of May 3rd 2023, Bumpkin Analytic data is no longer stored on the Blockchain. This significantly reduces the gas price for storing your data on chain. The team are working on public APIs to make this information accessible to open source developers.

Problems with Transactions

Sometimes the network is busy, this means that the gas fee might be higher than normal. You can always check this via https://polygonscan.com/gastracker
