Why did Chikn Game Tokens Pump?

Aug. 23, 2022

The price of Chikn has risen significantly in late August, amid weak overall market conditions in the blockchain space. Some experts attribute the sudden pump to a change on the game’s tokenomics that the team announced on Chikn’s Discord server.

To address the community’s concerns, the team decided to reduce the native $EGG-$FEED swap rate from 850x to 100x. This is meant to “respect the runtime supply” remaining on the emissions token $FEED. 

From now on, the game will disincentivize the introduction of redundant supply if it wasn’t acquired via LP staking through FarmLand. Because of this update, the game is on track for another 4 months of $FEED supply.

Let’s take a look at the price movements of the game’s tokens after the recent changes.

$EGG

The main utility token of Chikn had a great run over the course of 30 days. Even though it took a plunge to $0.1414 on July 27, it still managed to peak at $0.2089 on August 23. As of this writing, $EGG is trading at $0.2117. The Fully Diluted Market Cap is $1.7 million (per DexScreener), with a 24-hour volume of $105,005 (per CoinMarketCap)

$FEED

$FEED provides nourishment for Chikn.

The token experienced a sudden surge only in the last few days. For the most part of August, $FEED has been mostly trading sideways. At one point, it even dipped to as low as $0.0001575 on August 20. 

Patience has paid off however for loyal holders (and hoarders). The token took a swift hike to $0.0005188 on August 22. As of this writing, $FEED is trading at $0.0004248, with a Fully Diluted Market Cap of $1.2 million (per DexScreener). Additionally, the 24-hour volume is $53,905 (per CoinMarketCap).

What is Chikn?

Built on the Avalanche blockchain, Chikn is an Non-Fungible Token (NFT) gaming ecosystem that holds 10,000 algorithmically generated “Chikns.” The game utilizes a Tri-Token model. This system is designed for continual expansion and liquidity growth for the players and projects within the environment.

Basically, the game’s cycle starts off with players buying a Chikn and waiting for them to lay some $EGG. Then they can farm some $FEED, and feed them to the Chikn. Providing the chickens nourishment will make them “Biggr” and better at $EGG production.
