  1. 47 — Regions. Crimson WasteMap of Crimson WasteThe Crimson Waste is a large desert area with deep red dunes, extreme temperatures and little water. From the rocks to the plants, nearly everything in this environment is toxic. The surface of Crimson Waste, known as Cinder, hosts a sandstorm that envelops the sky. However, many tunnel networks exist beneath this landscape, leading to areas vastly different from the hot, desolate surface. Low visibility makes the surface difficult to explore.CinderCinder is the hottest area on the planet. The raging winds from the sandstorm create a thick near-impenetrable layer around the outskirts of Crimson Waste which usurps the barrier generated by the Obelisk. Red dust mixes with ash, giving a contrasting aesthetic of black and red. Cinder is hostile to all life, and despite the winds, the air is like fire due to the heat, which has no trouble permeating the climate. Although the sky is a dark swirling bruise that hosts periodic thunder cracks, light still manages to diffuse through thick cloud cover, faintly illuminating the region from every direction. Periodic flashes light the region.Ulum’s LandingUlum’s Landing is situated at the centre of the Crimson waste and acts as the access point to the realms beneath the surface. The eye of the never-ending sandstorm rages above, and layers of various types of rock and crystal act as a makeshift canopy that protects the landing as the transit point to the world beneath. Standing tall in the middle of the landing is the Obelisk, which hosts a damp and overgrown surrounding area with puddles, strange plants, mushrooms and Lighted Hairgrass. This large open area has entrances to the various tunnels. Some of these lead back to the surface, others a dead end. As the eye of the storm rages above, sand falls through cracks in the ceiling, a reminder that this peculiar sanctuary provides insufficient protection. The different types of rock protecting this area are dotted with an array of crystals and, at times, mimic what would be a starry night sky beyond the sand storm above. The Crimson Waste Obelisk surrounded by Lighted Hairgrass and fields of Orbonium.Hell’s PointHell’s point is on the east side of Ulum’s Landing — an outcrop of rock that takes one further underground, leading to primarily pitch-black areas. However, luminescent plants dot these caves with a faint fluorescent glimmer. Some release colourful acid, which drips down the walls creating pools of light in an otherwise black void. At the bottom of Hell’s Point are the Cradle Pools. These mini-reservoirs of bubbling acid release a faint glowing fog infused with light from radiant flora like the Giant Luminescent Hazelnut. The cradle pools.The maze-like tunnels descending from Hell’s Point lead to various unknown destinations. However, a single path grants access to the Howling Rift, a higher area just north of Hell’s Point. Howling RiftHowling Rift is one of the narrowest tunnels beneath Crimson Waste. Wind rages, enveloping the area in sand. However, a scintilla of vegetation has grown in some parts, seeking refuge in various cracks. Although there is access to the surface, high walls and few ledges make the journey nearly impossible. AnguithNorthwest of Ulum’s Landing is Anguith, a corridor leading to a vast graveyard. The further one travels down this path, the more alien the environment becomes. Thousands of glowing crystals jut from the rock, and occasionally a peculiar sound emanates throughout the tunnel as pebbles or debris bounce off them. The crystals in the cave light up the darkness.As travellers exit the tunnel, they arrive at the graveyard.Bones, ribcages, and skulls populate the graveyard at the end of Anguith.Many fossilised remains form part of the structure of the caves, such as a petrified thorax, which makes up the central archway. When entering the graveyard, one should be wary as a large section of the surface area is a deep pool of acid, which dissolves all but the crystals that find their way here. Periodically, tremors below the surface release plumes of toxic gas. Indeed this green reservoir of disintegration seems to be the largest acid source in the entire region. Soka’s GardenNorth of Ulum’s landing is a pathway to Soka’s Garden. Sand pours constantly from the surface above, obscuring the entrance to the garden, which is difficult to pinpoint. However, with Gravity Boots, one might find their way to it. The entrance to the tunnel towards Soka’s Garden is obscured by sand pouring from above.When travelling through the tunnel towards Soka’s Garden, one will encounter an array of peculiar plants.Soka’s Garden.A sloping pathway lit by acid streams and tiny mushrooms leads to further sandfalls. Beyond the sandy curtains, one eventually arrives at a large open area overgrown with plants and mushrooms powdered with sand. Giant Prayershrooms form a forest, and two prominent stone peaks stand tall, covered by countless flowers and fungi. MagnopassMagnopass sits southeast of Ulum’s Landing, characterised by electromagnetic plants which spark, crackle, and glow. An electrified Giant Luminescent Hazelnut in Magnopass.Magnopass leads to an area with the largest Giant Luminescent Hazelnut in the Crimson Waste. This large hazelnut hangs from the ceiling above a giant pool of bubbling acid, which covers most of the cave floor. Pools of bubbling acid fill Magnopass.The exit to Cinder through the Magnopass.Southern PassageA convenient way to access the surface is via the Southern Passage.The most accessible pathway towards the surface of the Crimson Waste is the Southern Passage. An extensive knee-deep water system operates here and is a beautiful translucent green. Unlike the acid pools in other parts of this region, the water is harmless. Vines and plants hang from various rock formations, and of all the tunnel systems, this is the most peaceful and pleasant to explore. Giant boulders, towering rock formations and colonies of mushrooms abound, and due to its vast interior, one might forget they are underground. Giant trees hang down from the rock.The end of the Southern Passage.Heido’s DamIn Ulum’s Landing, one pathway remains blocked and what lies beyond is unknown. Giant slabs of rock lay stacked atop one another and form what is known as Heido’s Dam. View the full article
  2. 46 — Regions. Abyssal BasinArea BreakdownTravelers GorgeThe Obelisk stands inside a wet marshland.The light shines westward, a tunnel cut through a thick forest. The energy of the Obelisk has carved a wide path. The overhang is yet to grow back as if fearful of reprise. Surrounding the Obelisk is a soaking wet grassland that leads into the different areas of the region. As with all regions, the Obelisk feels purposefully placed at the region’s centre. To the South, the grassland fades into quicksand and swamp. To the north, a dense forest wall with giant root-like bridges overhead guides travellers into the darkness of Abbysal Grove. Opposite the gorge is the entrance to Last Ripples. Peering through the Travellers GorgeSloughGiant Titanicus cover the last daylightSouth East is Slough. An unforgiving swamp where giant ‘Titanicus’ mushrooms overwhelm the horizon. The ground is thick mud, with patches of swamp grass and knee-deep streams, the air sulfuric due to gas bubbling to the surface from the core. Swamp flowers dotting dry patches of topsoil radiate faint light, bright enough to see through the fog. Titanicus Mushrooms grow wide before breaching the surface and erupting from the swamp. They upheave the soil as they reach into the sky, carrying smaller flora — an unsettling sight. These mushrooms share nutrients through gigantic root systems. Only found alive in Slough, they cannot sustain themselves in other regions and rarely grow elsewhere. Giant, collapsed husks bordering Bluewood form a natural bridge over the Abyssal Drift, moss-filled rapids that course the region’s breadth. Abyssal Drift is a dangerous river bordering Bluewood.BluewoodBluewood NoonThe southwest area of Abyssal Basin owes its name to the eponymous Bluewood Giants. These towering hardwoods constantly absorb and expel water, causing extreme humidity that tints the atmosphere blue. Knee-deep streams and small rivers divide the giant trees. Many plants and flowers grow on the drier patches of land, surrounded by tepid water. The ground is unusually colourful, containing an assortment of hues dispersed in the soil, not unlike the Rainbow Bark trees of the north. Bluewood at Night — Becoming GreenwoodAt night, the soil fluoresces, illuminating land and water and turning Bluewood into Greenwood. Last RipplesIslands formed in the Last Ripples — made from fossilised Leviathan remains.North of Bluewood lays Last Ripples, which bridges Bluewood and Abyssal Grove. Last Ripples is naught but a boneyard for Leviathan. Bones fossilised in a bygone era create a scaffolding for plants to grow on, over, and underneath. View from Bluewood — The Skeleton islands form a bridge between Bluewood and Abyssal Grove.The countless overgrown ribcages and skulls create natural islands, bridging the deep water to the more swampy, open area of Bluewood. To the north, near the Abyssal Grove border, the trees’ complex root systems disappear as the water deepens. The root system on the Edge of Last Ripples — Leading into Abyssal GroveAbyssal GroveTo the north of the Obelisk is Abyssal Grove, the region’s most extensive area. A thick, dense, mangrove-like forest spans the region’s entire width. Due to the lack of sunlight, the ground and water have a faint bio-luminescence. Similar to the effect in Bluewood. Overhanging branches and roots allow access to trees through the air.Two paths extend from the Obelisk, cutting through the forest leading to Taiga Borreal and Sanctum Mesa. The trees of Abyssal Grove are endless. Complex root systems intertwine, creating islands and surfaces for other plants to grow. Giant Nipa Palms grow in several places in the forest, so immense they form an impenetrable forest canopy. Sunlight peeks through, imitating the stars. The native plants find ways to harness the radiation from the planet’s core, countering the lack of sunlight. Almost every tree, flower and bush creates light that others absorb. The Forest is deadly and poisonous but beautiful still. The bark of the Rainbow Trees is multicoloured, with fungi so enormous it grows into platforms one could stand on. Remains litter the ground here — foot travel is nigh impossible. Abyssal Pumpkins — Illuminating the dark forest.Glowing Abyssal Pumpkins fill some forest patches, an odd plant that grows like a fungal mesh, spanning kilometres. Their fruit features translucent magenta skin and a glowing inner core that contrasts the dark blue-green environment. Entrance to Kaldrick’s Eld — The giant Abyssal Grove tree — With a hollow core.Kaldrick’s Eld is an ancient tree with a hollow root structure near the Eastern border. It resembles a giant cave entrance from the outside, drawing you in. However, descending through the root system leads to a flooded root system — an immediate dead end. The Abyssal Grove ends at sea in the North, where dark clouds band together to form an impressive storm front. Lightning shoots across the horizon, thunder close behind, contrasting the open, clear sky above the Abyssal Basin. The Obelisk undoubtedly plays part in these diverse weather systems.

  3. 45 — Land Sale Commences June 2ndWe appreciate your patience and are excited to announce the first Illuvium Land Sale begins on the 2nd of June at 09:00 UTC. Secure one of 20,000 plots across seven unique regions and build your empire. Fuel is a critical part of the Illuvium economy and can only be extracted from Land. Approximately 5% of all in-game revenues go to landholders. We are confident that a Dutch Auction with a long duration is the best way to avoid a Gas War. To further reduce excess GAS spending, we implement a system that reduces the ability for two parties to bid on the same plot, minimising the number of failed transactions. Next week, we release an article with all you need to know about the Land Sale. In the meantime, check out illuvium.io/land and review IIP-20, which has the sale parameters. Including starting prices, auction types, sale duration and other details. See you at the auction, Cheers, Illuvium Core View the full article
  4. Last week an IIP was unanimously approved by the Council, confirming the prices of plots in the upcoming Land Sale. View the IIP Snapshot here. Please remember that the plot prices are inflated by design and reduce rapidly over a short period until sold or returned to the Illuvium vault. We utilise a Dutch Auction to minimise FOMO and botting. The starting price for each tier is below: Thank you to all the council and community members who participated in the discussion and voting process. Stay tuned for the official Sale Date announced this week! Illuvium Core View the full article
  5. Illuvium is not just an incredible AAA blockchain gaming project. As a GameFi project, it is also a powerful DeFi protocol with a native staking platform. Recently, we upgraded our systems to bring the community a more secure and versatile staking platform—Staking v2. This article teaches you how to stake SLP tokens in the ILV/ETH pool. IntroThere are two primary ILV pools available: ILV and ILV/ETH. Both require two steps for staking: Acquiring the tokenStaking the token in Staking v2This article focuses on the first step, “Acquiring the token”, since article 42. All You Need To Know About Staking v2 covers staking in general. What is an SLP Token?The term “SLP” stands for Sushi Liquidity Provider. Essentially, a user deposits two separate tokens (usually a Base Token like ETH or a Stablecoin like USDC + a Primary Token like ILV) of equal value into the Liquidity Pool, making them available to trade. In return, the user receives SLP tokens. The SLP holder receives a percentage of all trades in the pool. For more information, please refer to the Sushi’s official documentation: Liquidity Pools In the Illuvium Liquidity Pool, the Primary Token is ILV, and the Base Token is ETH. Creating ILV/ETH SLP token via SushiTo complete this process, you will need an equal value of ETH and ILV. Please make sure you have both in your wallet to proceed. In this tutorial, we use a Metamask wallet and Sushi decentralized exchange. If you have not set up your wallet, you can find the extension here: The crypto wallet & gateway to Web3 blockchain apps | MetaMask. Once your wallet is set up and supplied with both tokens, you must: Navigate to SushiSwap’s “Add Liquidity” Page: https://app.sushi.com/addConnect your wallet in the top right tabOnce connected, you will need to populate both fields with ETH and ILV. See below for reference: Please keep in mind that creating the SLP requires an equal value of both tokens*Hit “Approve,” then confirm the transaction in your MetaMask wallet. Confirmation usually takes less than a few minutes with a medium gas fee.Awesome! Now ensure the SLP tokens are in your wallet. If it does not populate automatically, you need to open Metamask and select “import tokens.” Navigate to the “Custom Token” tab. The ILV/ETH SLP token address: 0x6a091a3406E0073C3CD6340122143009aDac0EDa Once the information for the new SLP populates, click “Add Custom Token”. You will now be able to see your SLP under “Assets” in your wallet. Staking Your LP Token in Illuvium v2Step 1: Go to our official staking V2 dashboard (always verify that you are going to our official website domain): https://staking.illuvium.io Under the “Stake” section, select “Pools.” The interface prompts you to connect your wallet: Once connected, you should see the two primary ILV pools: Hit the “Stake” button on the “ILV/ETH Pool” So close! Finally, select the amount of ILV/ETH SLP token you wish to add, along with the lock duration. To finish the process, simply hit “Stake” then confirm in your wallet. Give it a beat, and you should be good to go! Your SLP token is now staked and you can monitor your rewards on the Illuvium Dashboard. Hope this helps!

  7. Illuvium Dev Blog — March 2022IntroWhat an exciting month ending with an enormous sigh of relief as we deployed Staking v2. I don’t think people will ever realise how genuinely complicated it is. In addition to that, many other projects are near completion. Things accelerate as we clear through the backlog because people are less spread thin. We bit off more than we could chew over the last six months, but the thought process that we can, and will, do anything is what many people appreciate. The lesson is that we can put that bulldozer attitude to better use if we narrow the focus. We plan to spend some time post open beta to ensure everything is in working order before moving on to new games. I’m sure there will be different projects, but we will learn to space them better and take on only what we know we can handle. Illuvium: ArenaRanked Arena was getting lonely as the only Arena with a bad name, so it is now called Ascendant Arena. The main reason for the change was that Leviathan and Survival will get ranked modes (of a sort), so it doesn’t make sense to have an arena called ‘Ranked’. The main launch of PB1 is imminent. We are waiting on some security features related to content delivery. As you can see from the streams, it is more than good enough to go to the public.We have nearly completed the PB2 Illuvials, including the Lynx and Tier 0. But keep in mind that it is over 100 units. That will bring the total to about 150, with just over 50 more remaining before Open Beta.I’m working with the lead of Illuvium: Arena to rearchitect many systems both from a game design and coding perspective. Hence, bugs are less likely to be created and easier to spot. Eventually, all the creation is done through data editors, making it far more stable. It will also mean that the subsystems are easier to understand, making Combat Units easy to create.The QA team raised 106 bugs, and the developers resolved 141, which means we are getting closer to being bug-free.Augments, Bonding, and the new Hyper mechanic will happen this month. (Hyper won’t be complete because it also requires adding Hyper versions of every ability for all 200+ Combat Units. But the mechanic will be done)The Cinematic Renderer now works in Survival Mode but is unavailable for Beta testers.We have moved all our data server-side and versioned it so that we can check patches against your client and allow you to download the latest version if needed. The replay system can leverage this, but we are not planning version compatibility for the first few months.We finalised the groom and hair card system. Players will default to optimised hair cards that look great. Still, if you have a beast rig, you can select “Grant Mode” and see everything with cinematic level hair strands… at least for a few minutes before your PC melts.As we are nearly complete with the art for all Illuvials, we will start to polish the Illuvials that need it. Our first few lines aren’t entirely up to the latest standards. Then we move on to improving the art by adding additional immersive systems such as visual indicators of health and status and additive animations to show that a unit is hurt.Illuvium: OverworldSome setbacks were due to international events that preoccupied some of our core contributors. We are back at near-total capacity, and the team is rapidly getting to a functional state. The keyword last month was ‘functional’. This month we are aiming for ‘polished’. The Crimson Waste region is nearly ready. It only needs to be optimised for higher-level GPUs, but work has already begun on the low end too.We made some updates to existing plants that were not up to our standards.UI for the new HUD is in progress, including the new in-game notification system. Harvesting and Mining are also nearly done.Forging is functional. There is more UI work to go, but you can take a recipe and turn it into the final product, which requires a complete inventory system that is also functional.We have doubled our UI programming team this month, meaning that all the cool designs get created much faster now.Teleport beacons are now functional.Encounter Mode is now functional. It’s not in the final state, and we are still a while away from PB2. Still, you can now enter an encounter, play the battle, capture the Illuvials and exit with them in your inventory. I want to stress that borrowing the “Encounter Mode” from Illuvium: Arena is just the first phase of a much larger plan to allow you to capture Illuvials in the world. But that upgrade requires a colossal update, and as such, we will leverage the auto battler to enable capture. But don’t worry. We will begin work on a complete overhaul of Overworld fight mechanics as soon as possible.Illuvium: ZeroA slightly larger team has increased throughput significantly, and the internal alpha looks good. VFX completed except for some optimisation.We are adding some new plant assets to make it feel alive.Full UI update in progress.Tutorial System + Daily & Weekly Goals SystemLandmarks System (Boosts collection of a specific Fuel Type)Land Tier Boosts (Flat % boost depending on user’s tier)The WebGL version of the game looks great.A new sound engineer has implemented most of the sounds. He’s as good as the others on the Illuvium: Arena team, which should tell you how good ILV: Z will sound.Future scoping has begun, and we will need the community to input. After all, you all birthed Zero. How should we expand it? I have some ideas, as do the rest of the team. There’s a lot we can do to tie in with the storyline.Launch CinematicNo new updates here. Account AppNo new updates here. It is complete as far as the private betas are concerned. We will revisit it before the open beta launch. Game LauncherLast month, we announced the game launcher as a stand-alone app that acts as the singular hub for all things Illuvium. It is where downloading, and patching happens. It is where players create matches and enter matchmaking queues. It is where players find news. It hosts a version of the IlluviDEX and probably many more web apps. Very close to having the download portal ready, so people don’t have to get the Betas manually.We have a clear picture of this App’s functionality and final look.The desktop app version will begin soon.Staking v2Staking v2 deployment was very smooth. Apart from some minor UI changes, there wasn’t much that we needed to fix. There is one area in which we need to do some more work, but the devs will probably do it before you see this. Edit: Done. Token holders that did not withdraw received Accumulated Rewards greater than if we had kept staking running.Gas fees are lower and claiming rewards much simpler.We believe almost all minor UI bugs are gone. Nearly all issues have come from user error or wallet incompatibility (we will add more wallets over time)I want to start work on v3 (after a small break so that everyone can regain their sanity) because there is not a trivial amount of work to get EVERYONE moved to L2. That is the goal. We will try to make that as seamless as possible. Still, I want to prep people that moving to L2 is more challenging and might require some decisions that not everyone is happy about. But the positives massively outweigh any negatives.Land Sale and IlluviDEXWe are very close. Apart from testing and some infrastructure, we are there. Audits have begun, so I’m optimistic that we will have an announcement on the date for you soon. The IlluviDEX is going to swallow the Illuviary. It will be one App now, which makes much more sense. (Yes, I made the name and made them two separate things, to begin with, but I was wrong)There is an infrastructure change in progress to secure us against malicious actors. We’ve noticed that there has been a significant uptick in people trying to disrupt us at the infrastructure level. (As a positive, we’ve also seen a significant drop off of scammers in Discord)We still need end-to-end testing with IMX to ensure we don’t do anything silly, like misconfiguring variables. I’m saying that the security-first approach with Staking v2 worked, and we will continue that. There is a reason why we feel going with IMX as a proper ZK Rollup is much safer than a side chain.New WebsiteDeployed simultaneously as Staking v2, we think it looks pretty sharp. We hope you like it. There are still many things we want to add, but this is a great start. Once we complete the supporting Apps, it will feel complete. IlluvitarsIlluvitars are in about the same state as the Land Sale since they are ‘plugins’ to the IlluviDEX. However, Illuvitars started after and benefits from the experience gained from the Land Sale. It is also slightly less complex, meaning that the overall work has been much lower. Illuvitars Genesis Set — Phase 2 has begun. There will be a few more Accessories and 25 extra Illuvial portraits to purchase. We’re talking billions of combinations.Audits for the specific Illuvitars components will get underway soon.We are doing another pass at refining the user experience. We want this to be fun and straightforward. Keep in mind that Illuvitars is far more complex than your run-of-the-mill PFP project.DAO DashboardStill on hold but will start work this month now that Staking v2 is out. Investment AppWork to begin this month. The most important thing is that we managed to get the token to unlock pushed back three months, clearly showing that we care about the project’s long-term health. General UpdatesStoryNot much has changed with the story. It is getting more fleshed out, but it’s reasonably mature already. The focus was mainly on writing and directing the cinematic opening and associated launch trailer. We are using this time to flesh out the story bible and various assets that are not ‘story’ but are still part of the lore. While ‘Overworld’ won’t have a linear story like many single-player games (for a good reason), we would like to tell stories like this in future games, which require a solid backbone to the story of our universe. GovernanceNew Council. Lots of IIPs. Lots more to come. April will be crazy. InfrastructureIlluvium Cloud continues to expand, delivering on the download CDN, with testing underway. We’ve improved our CICD pipelines by reducing build time and increasing usability for all teams. Last but not least, we have an accepted draft for our standard naming conventions for AWS resources, which will improve our security posture in the cloud. MarketingIlluvium Insider has proven popular and allows deep connections with the community. Initiatives such as these are the sort of marketing we want to focus on because they are effective, and we can execute them incredibly well. We launched our first mini-campaign (Staking v2), with two more on the way for the Land Sale and Illuvitars. We have begun to assemble a larger team, hiring three more core contributors. The goal is to be agile and adjust to the rapidly changing market. We have 1.3+ million followers and counting across all marketing channels. ProductionWe’re doing a lot better with extra contributors. Each product has a “Product Manager” that looks after everything. They are a combined Product Owner and Project Manager because, as we have said many times, we like people to be maximally productive. There has been a total restructuring of the asset pipeline for the environment to keep things more organised since we now have hundreds of thousands of art assets. The outsource studios have begun to ramp up their capacity as they start to understand our needs better. We continue to push them for the best work possible. Their work has to be up to the standards we set for our core contributors, with no exceptions. SummaryEveryone on the project is excited about the future. Look no further than the willingness of both investors and contributors to extend the unlock. Since then, we’ve seen a lot of growth because everyone understands that we are legit. And we get it; there are many scams in the space. But watching live gameplay footage, select people outside of the team getting their hands on the game, and constant progress updates will allay those fears. On a more serious note, I want to thank all the contributors who continue to work tirelessly on the project. The community needs to understand that these people go hard. We get it; it’s fun to say ‘wen’. Keep in mind that many have gone a year straight without a break, including weekends. As much as I am thankful for those that understand delays, I equally want to implore others to realise that core contributors do read the chat. And negativity can affect them the same as anyone else. Not as much as the lack of sleep and rest, but mental health is important too. I challenge anyone to find a PlayFi project that has shown as much progress as Illuvium. We’ve just eclipsed 500,000 work hours completed and are still just as excited to break the million-hour mark. Let’s make sure we do it together. See you in the Arena.

Beyond bug fixes and streamlining QoL workflows, the upgrade offers our token holders new-and-improved features, gas efficiency, and a new user-friendly interface. These user experience enhancements are possible thanks to critical improvements we made to our staking contracts. We conducted and passed various external audits to ensure our v2 contracts were secure. The upgraded contracts and interface give v2 users the power to claim rewards from multiple pools in one transaction, claim their revenue distributions, and more. Staking v2 is a mandatory update for all those staking in the Illuvium Protocol. We want all of our stakers to experience the full benefits of the upgraded system and leave no ILV token holder behind. I’m brand new to staking $ILV. How do I stake in v2?For those new to our staking program, welcome! Upgraded to v2, the staking platform allows Illuvium community members to claim the protocol’s yield and revenue distributions and use the dashboard to view pending and vesting rewards, deposits, pricing, etc. Please read this article to learn more about the fundamentals of our staking program: 28.

What are the steps of the upgrade process? Do I need to do anything?https://medium.com/media/0536c3d3c7944a63440470aa889078fd/hrefStaking v2 Rewards will go live on 13:00 UTC March 31, 2022Go to our official staking V2 dashboard, and always verify that you are going to our official website domain: https://staking.illuvium.io Staking v1 users must upgrade to v2 before receiving yield; however, they can still upgrade after the window closes. The new v2 contracts enable users to maintain their weight without doing anything. For smaller stakers, this is a win. For larger stakers, this will probably result in slightly higher gas fees. The current advice for larger stakers is to unstake from v1 and restake in v2. Staking v2 is still far cheaper than v1; however, for gas optimisation, all deposits should be in v2. If you are staking in v1 and need to upgrade to v2, the first step is to ensure you’re clear on your deposit types. Deposit TypesLocked deposits are deposits made with a lock duration and are still locked.Unlocked deposits are deposits made with a lock duration but have now unlocked.Flexible deposits are deposits without a lock duration.For Locked and Unlocked Deposits If you have locked or unlocked deposits in either the ILV or the ETH/ILV pool, you will need to upgrade the relevant pools to continue to receive rewards in Staking v2. For those only staked in the ILV pool, you will only need to upgrade the ILV pool. To do this, click the Upgrade ILV Pool button. You will need to upgrade both pools if you are staked in the ILV/ETH pool. Click the Upgrade ILV Pool and Upgrade ILV/ETH Pool buttons. Your Pending and Accumulated rewards are claimed when upgrading the ILV pool. A Merkle Tree of each user’s accumulated yield weight in v1 will be published and stored in IPFS for full transparency. Anyone will be able to verify the authenticity of the data. For Flexible DepositsIf you have flexible deposits, to continue receiving rewards, you will need to Upgrade the ILV pool and upgrade your existing yield rewards by clicking the “Upgrade Yield and Claim Rewards” button. This will open the Upgrade Yield and Claim Rewards modal. Once opened, you can select whether you would like to claim your rewards in ILV or sILv2 and click the “Claim Rewards and Upgrade Yield” button. You will also need to withdraw and re-stake to continue receiving rewards from your deposits. The interface will show you a warning notification about this. To withdraw, navigate to Vesting, and the interface will highlight the relevant deposits in red. Select the flexible deposit you would like to withdraw, and click withdraw. Once you have completed your withdrawal, you can deposit into either pool by clicking the Staking nav item and then stake into the relevant pool. Please note: Both v2 pools have a minimum lock duration of 1 month. Pool Weights and Lockups in v2Flexible Deposit in ILV Pool — Doesn’t count to yield in v2 unless unstaked and locked for a minimum period of 1 month in v2.Flexible Deposit in LP Pool — Doesn’t count to yield in v2 unless unstaked and locked for a minimum of 1 month in v2.Locked Deposit in ILV Pool — Counts to yield rewards after upgrading to v2 at the current weight.Unlocked Deposit in ILV Pool — Counts to yield rewards after upgrading to v2 at the current weight.Locked Deposit in LP Pool — Counts to yield rewards after upgrading to v2 at the current weight.Unlocked Deposit in LP Pool — Counts to yield rewards after upgrading to v2 at the current weight.Locked ILV Yield — Counts to yield rewards after upgrading to v2 at the current weight.Unlocked ILV Yield — N/A (Has not been 12 months since launch but will continue to count to yield rewards even after unlocked)Seed and Team — Automatically migrated to v2 and not counted towards yield.Rewards in v2All of the outstanding rewards resulting from the pause in the reward emission in v1 will be claimed when upgrading the ILV pool. When upgrading the pool, The interface will show you both the amount of the pending rewards available from before and all of the accumulated rewards you are eligible for since the pause period started. Features and BenefitsConveniently Batch Rewards Claiming or Unstaking In Single Transactions v2 offers the convenience of two types of batched actions. Claim your rewards from all pools in a single transaction. Unstake all unlocked tokens in a single transaction. You’ll no longer be required to claim on each stake and unstake function. By bundling these actions into single transactions, you pay gas just once per transaction — and minimise your gas fees. Gas Optimisation For Cheaper Transactions We’ve significantly reduced your gas fees in our new architecture. By reducing the number of storage slots used by the deposit data structure, implementing new and better yield processing flows, and optimising the number of reads, your transactions on our v2 platform will be much cheaper. Secure Your Tokens In A New ETH Address Via Transfer Wallet New v2 stakers will be able to use Transfer Wallet and have the peace of mind of having an option to try averting token theft in v2. If your private key gets leaked, v2 allows you to transfer the final position of your tokens to a different wallet address. Redirect where your totals will deposit, so they don’t end up back in the compromised wallet and stolen. In v2, you can use Change Wallet while your tokens are safely locked up and earning rewards, so they end up in the right ETH address when they unlock. The Transfer Wallet feature is restricted to wallets with no v1 staking history for security reasons. We recommend that users create a new wallet to begin staking in v2 if they would like to use this feature. Exception: If you only deposited into the LP pool in v1, then v2 deposits can be transferred. We will investigate future upgrades that could return this feature to other users. Flexible New Architecture To Integrate Future Upgrades We implemented the Universal Upgradeable Proxy Standard in v2 (Factory, Core Pools, and Flash Pools). This blockchain solution enables us to continuously integrate new features, refine existing features, and expand our capabilities. We know members of our community will have brilliant ideas for improvement. ILV token holders can participate in governance and steer the DAO to new possibilities. Our governance model has always given power to our token holders by encouraging them to propose changes that could benefit the future of our project — from staking features to new products and more. In v2, with the Universal Upgradeable Proxy Standard, we stay true to the “Govern-To-Earn” mantra on the blockchain development side. By reinforcing our flexible new architecture with upgradeability, our protocol can keep innovating in step with our evolving DAO community so that Staking v3 and beyond will be even better. Reserving Our Benefits For Long-Term Token Holders We’re taking measures to ensure the most benefits go to token holders who are with us for the long haul. One such action is removing the Flexible Staking feature in v2. Token holders that flexibly staked in v1 will be required to lock up for one month when they stake in v2. Removing flexible staking reduces ILV token circulation and keeps distributions flowing to long-term holders. Note: Weight calculations will still follow the same 1:2 multiplier used in v1, keeping the system fair and balanced for all. NFT Distributions A separate IIP is in progress with more details on the NFT distribution integration, but Staking v2 will include all the features required to make this integration seamless.

  12. Illuvium Dev Blog — February 2022Intro“There are decades where nothing happens, and then weeks where decades happen”. February might look like one of the least busy months in a long time, but it has been intense behind the scenes. There are so many different projects coming together shortly that March will be insane. You’ll notice many projects are “nearly complete”, but to be honest, this was not by design. Initially, we spaced them out so something would drop in November, December, January, and February. Projects have developed at different paces, which has meant congestion in our releases. We will coordinate it all. Who needs sleep? PS: I tried my best to condense this into something more concise. I know how much you all hate reading. Illuvium: ArenaYou’ll notice that none of the details below technically stop us from getting beta tester feedback. That’s a clue. The final polish is underway, and the only unimplemented systems are Augments and Bonding.I have plans for overhauling Empowers and Hyper, but these are low priority, and the systems are currently functional.Quality Assurance testing is systematic now. We go through every design in the GDD to ensure that documentation matches the code and reality.One hundred eighty defects were found this month, with one hundred and sixty resolved.The first pass for Augment implementation is inside the game. (Disabled for private beta 1)We are adding/polishing many sound effects and visual effects.We added the ability to log in (with captcha support) and play in the daily survival challenge with waves generated by the server.Better Survival mode backend integration.Working leaderboard.UI Improvements: Updated Health Bar, UI Cards order, Synergies Panel improvements, highlight Synergies, Added Timer Toggle Before you start the survival Mode, and reversed the Filter System.Camera improvements.All VFX ready. Synergies and Weapon VFX. Just doing bug fixes at this point.We tuned the difficulty of Survival Mode to ramp up gradually.We completed most of the auto-balancing back end infrastructure. We need to get the final game so we can use it.Illuvium: OverworldMost of the team have moved their focus to Overworld, the emphasis of PB2 (The Combat Engine from the Auto Battler makes an appearance here, but since this will be the first time people test the biomes, we want to get them right) The environment team has made significant strides into finalising Crimson Waste. There are some lighting elements to sort out, followed by optimisation.The outsource studios are going well on Abyssal Basin and Brightland Steppes.Game features such as Drone Radar, Forging, Skins, Mining, and Harvesting are nearly polished.UI is functional, and the UI designs are all done. We need to hook them up.The inventory is persistent, and resources can be mined and then forged.Only Ideation of the final three regions remains for the concept art team.Illuvium: ZeroThere is an internal Beta! We’ll release gameplay footage soon. The small team has done a great job. Some people will get access to the internal beta.Sounds are coming through now.We are working through most of the VFX.Design changes to make it feel more like a game.Launch CinematicShapeshifters have begun the initial work on the cinematic. It will be shorter than the previous, but it will tell more of the story, and we think you will love it. The script is undergoing a final pass but will remain essentially unchanged.PreVis is underway.We are prioritising using as many of our existing assets as possible.Oh, and Shapeshifters has been busy. Don’t worry about that. But I’m not going to spoil EVERYTHING for you. Account AppPlease welcome the newest addition to the Dev Blog family. I can’t tell you how happy I will be when the number of products to report on DECREASES. Here you will be able to update all the details of your account. Each game uses this for validation. UX and UI are mostly complete.The core server features are complete, but many features are still to come.It has reached a functional state for the Private Betas.Game Loader(Formerly Private Beta App) The game loader is a tiny app right now, but eventually, this will form the core of patching, patch notes, downloads, the IlluviDEX and the Illuviary (as a web wrapper app for consistency). Those enrolled in the Private Betas will be able to log in and download the game and get some introductory notes and a leaderboard. Baby steps. The UI is 70% completed.The backend work continues, including the leader board.The infrastructure team has organised Content Delivery.Staking v2Internal web interface testing is underway, which means all the web core features are ready to go. Last year, we would have made the mistake of releasing it in the current state. But that caused v2 in the first place. It was undercooked and rushed. We are using the whole QA team to break it as much as possible this time. We’ve already found a few minor interface bugs. These aren’t critical, but it’s good to release something clean. 3 Audits have concluded finding nothing major. We only await the Quantstamp audit. The internal audit is complete.External Informal audit by white hat Samczsun is complete.Peckshield Audit is complete.Quantstamp reaudit is underway.Land Sale and IlluviDEXThere is some big news here. We can confirm that the Land Sale event will be a hybrid L1 / IMX event. The sale will be L1, but we will mint immediately tradable IMX assets. Soon after the IlluviDEX is ready, players will utilise our custom-made solution that blows everything else out of the water. There are minor design changes to support IMX, including some UI tweaks.Hooking up the IMX APIs.The developers will document the scripts by next week.Tier 5 auction announcement shortly. It will be a custom solution as we won’t have our English auction contracts completed on time. It will be fun and live-streamed, though. Super exciting.New WebsiteI’ve been driving product-focused advertising for a long time, but our website isn’t great, and there is a new one coming. Very few resources have been allocated to this until now because we’ve felt getting out the products is critical since they will sell themselves. We no longer send links officially so that you can identify phishing attempts quickly. When you get a notification from us, it will tell you to access that initiative (be it a promotion, competition, or sign up page) directly from the website. We recommend you bookmark our site. Don’t get caught out going to fake sites. We designed the UX and UI to allow more straightforward navigation.The website will act as a hub to everything we do, making it easier for you to live there permanently.IlluvitarsThese aren’t your standard procedural profile pictures. We have some of the best artists in the world outputting the best art the blockchain has seen. Each item is hand-drawn, AND hand placed. Imagine Cryptopunks, but with good art and complexity of approximately 1000x. The concept art team are beasts. The sheer number of combinations are insane. I hope people can appreciate when they get their Illuvatar that a world-leading artist will have drawn, hand placed, and shaded your NFT. Each combination is quality controlled, not just spit out of an algorithm. Set 1 is now complete.Set 2 has been decided and is underway.The smart contracts are at the internal audit stage.We may choose to do a similar system as the land sale, with the contracts on L1 but the minting on IMX.DAO DashboardThe Dao Dashboard is mostly on hold as core contributors work to finish other projects. All UI and UX Complete.Front end work has not begun.Backend work has not begun but is minimal.IlluviaryThe Illuviary is mostly on hold as core contributors work to finish other projects. All UI and UX Complete.Front end work has not begun.Backend work has not begun but is minimal.Investment AppAnother new addition. Last month I mentioned a solution for not being ready for public launch before token unlock. The Investment App is a large part of that mitigation strategy. The other part is still under wraps. The Investment App will allow retail investors to buy $ILV at a discount in exchange for an extended lock-up. These tokens will be limited in quantity and also available to institutional investors, but everyone gets treated equally. There’s more, but I can’t divulge it just yet.UX work begins next week.NOTE: The investment app won’t be ready for the end of March, but that may be less relevant if we can arrange the other part of the plan. General UpdatesStoryI might be a monster. Our lead writer constantly tries to lift the story and bring out the high concept glory of a space opera. And I try to make people cry. I tasked our art team with some lofty goals when designing the story of the world. You’re supposed to feel emotions without knowing why. My job is to punch you in the gut with the why. We are happy with the progress. There may be some continuity errors, but I can’t see them. We might get some outside assistance to ensure we are on to something worthy of the project. I want to reiterate that you will travel the world capturing and training Illuvials. You will also collect resources to deliver on community goals. There is one more purpose, but you can’t know that until the start. Illuvium is not a single-player campaign, and you aren’t going to see many cutscenes. You might impact the story, but you aren’t the hero. I can promise you the narrative will reveal itself over time. If you’re looking for a custom story that’s all about you, look elsewhere. GovernanceGovernance took a back seat in February. However, March will include quite a few proposals. You might know the results when reading this, but I don’t. So this is one of those rare times that you have more information than me. That makes me smile, though. One day you’ll understand. NOTE: Yes, for those who caught it, that was deliberate. For the clever, you might see the metagame. Don’t tell anyone else. MarketingWe have refined our marketing strategy to focus on the current addressable market for Illuvium, crypto gaming, NFT enthusiasts, and Alt Coins investors. We are doubling down on what works and putting on ice what doesn’t. We are increasing efforts in influencer marketing and earned media (AMAs & interviews) because those have generated the most growth for us thus far. We are onboarding international influencers in multi-language areas (German, Arabic, Filipino, etc.) We have assigned a dedicated resource to booking higher quality AMAs with our co-founders and core contributors. We are de-emphasising paid advertising and “general gaming” targeting for now and running test campaigns to see when it is best to invest more into these areas. As a result, we have promoted Andrew Wall to Head of Marketing, given his fantastic track record with influencers. We now have 7-figure followers across our marketing channels and are launching a new initiative in March 2022 called “Illuvium Insider” to begin growing our official Twitch account. ProductionTwo more talented Product Managers joined the team this month. The groundwork for our overhaul is underway. As most people know, I’m very “anti-manager”, but with nearly 200 people, it was the right time to up the team from 2. We were at the limit of our abilities. InfrastructureWe have delivered on phase one for serving our game binaries via CDN.Data logging is underway with our first operational dashboard.We delivered on automation testing for backend deploymentsSummaryI’m sure there are many frustrated fans out there. All I can say is good products take time. Perhaps we are too cautious, but considering January, can you blame us? It can seem like we aren’t doing much for those not following closely. I’m more confident than ever. We are all working hard to deliver something properly good. Where we have made mistakes, we have made up for them. The Discord hack compensation concluded this month without any issues. The sILV claim is just about to drop. I’m doing my best to oversee as much as I can personally. But there are only so many hours in the day, which means we need everyone to be patient. If you can do that, good things may come.

  15. We are thrilled to announce that sILV2 is now deployed, along with a new contract that allows eligible community members to claim their reimbursements. sILV2 uses the same ERC-20 token contract as ILV, with the same in-game utility as sILV. You will find the sILV2 Claim banner on the official Illuvium website. For step-by-step instructions, read the article “39. How to Claim Your sILV2 Reimbursement” on our official Illuvium Medium. Who can claim?All sILV token holders receive sILV2 equal to their volume of sILV held at the time of the Recovery snapshot (block 13940833).Liquidity providers in the sILV Uniswap V3 pool receive sILV2 equal to the sILV portion of their liquidity position* at the time of the hack snapshot (block 13940652).Users who swapped ETH for sILV between the Recovery snapshot and the Grace snapshot (block 13941127) receive sILV2 equal to the value of sILV purchased, while those that swapped sILV for ETH will have the equivalent value of sILV2 removed from their reimbursement balance.All users receive an extra 0.1 sILV2 to compensate for gas fees.For more information on the Founding Team and Council’s decisions about reimbursement, deprecating sILV, and what steps we took to fix the exploit, read Medium article “38. Update on sILV Exploit and Discord Security Incident.” *Liquidity providers in the sILV Uniswap V3 pool will also receive an airdrop of ETH at a later date equivalent to the amount they held at the time of the hack snapshot. sILV2 Claim Page InstructionsFollow these instructions to mint your sILV2 reimbursement on the sILV2 claim platform.
