is different which shall be stored on the Blockchain.

They have 9 different colors and 35 different attributes.

With this dApp, you can exchange and breed CryptoHorses.

What is so special about CryptoHorse?

In developing CryptoHorse, we have always seen the tremendous potential
of consensus-driven by the motivation to create a worthy product.

Horses have been traded for millennia.
We have created a revenue-based model that anyone can participate in.

This model is accessible to any investor and can provide a quick,
user-friendly experience for a larger audience.

What game modes and features can I expect in the future?

There will be more game modes to be introduced in the future,
including Horse city ecosystem, leagues, and tournaments.

more info here.

What do I need for the game?

A computer, mobile or tablet with internet and a digital wallet.

Can I play on a mobile device?

Yes you can! You can buy with any Browser Wallet App.

Can I log in from multiple computers?

You can use CryptoHorse from multiple computers as long as
you have your digital wallet installed.

Which browser?

We recommend sticking with Chrome, Firefox, Edge or Safari.

It may be technically possible to use another browser,
but we can’t guarantee optimal performance,
so you may want to steer clear.

How do I get a digital wallet?

We support Metamask.

You’ll need to put money in your wallet to make your first purchase.
We can show you how to do that, too.

Note: A digital wallet acts like a bank account — treat it with respect
and make sure you don’t forget your password or seed words.

What is MetaMask?

The perfect place to store all your horses
and items is in the secure wallet MetaMask.

We recommend using this to have the best gaming experience.

1. Install Metamask here.
Metamask lets you make transactions fast,
securely and directly on your web browser.

2. You can then, through Metamask, connect to an existing wallet
or create a new wallet and send Ether there.

What are seed words? Why are they important?

Some wallets use seed words instead of a password.

They let you restore your account in the case it’s deleted.

This also means that anyone with
your seed words can access your account and steal your assets.

Please be sure to save your seed words, and do not share them with others.

Can CryptoHorse change my digital wallet’s password?

No, we can’t.
Wallets are independent programs that
CryptoHorse does not in any way control.

Although this means we can’t help with resetting passwords,
it also means we can never forcibly remove assets from your wallet.

Your horses are stored in your wallet,
not our databases, and your wallet belongs to you.

What is a “wallet address”?

Your public wallet address
is a unique identifier for your wallet.
(e.g. 0xaba935f589805095a892ecefdb6eb83eff45d67)

It’s like a name.

You can share it freely with others,
and it’s used to direct assets to your wallet.

I can’t access my wallet. Can you recover my horses?

Unfortunately, no.
If you lose access to your wallet, we can’t recover your horses.

It’s not an issue of it being against our policy or being too difficult;
it’s literally impossible.

Our smart contracts secure each CryptoHorse
so that the developers can’t edit, access, or reassign them.

This protects your CryptoHorses from hackers
and anyone else who would steal them.

Unfortunately, it also means we can’t simply ‘recover’ a CryptoHorse.

What’s Ethereum (ETH)? Why do I need it?

Ethereum (ETH) is a cryptocurrency powering the Ethereum Blockchain,
which CryptoHorse is built on.

You need to convert your currency (e.g. Euro, USD, CAD, GBP)
into Ethereum to pay for things — such as horses or saddles —
on the Ethereum network.

What is a CryptoHorse?

CryptoHorses are digital collectible horses
which are created on Ethereum Blockchain.

Each horse is unique not only in its appearance
or color but their genetic composition is different
which shall be stored in the Blockchain.

They have 9 different colors and 35 different attributes.

Is it a mare (female) or stallion (male)?

Each horse has a particular gender –
it can either be a male ‘Stallion’ or a female ‘Mare’ but not both.

A General horse have no gender, and can not give birth.

How many horses do CryptoHorse have?

Initially, there shall be 20.000 Gen-0 horses that will be created
and stored on Ethereum Blockchain.

There is no provision for creating new horses after
the initial 20.000 Gen-0 horses are sold.

How many CryptoHorses do I need to get started?

Just one!

However, we recommend starting with two
so that you can breed them together.

How is the price determined?

Each of the 20.000 horse is unique
and has a price depending on its color and attribute.

Some attributes are rare and some are common.
Rarer the attributes, higher is the price.

The price of a horse is determined on the basis of the following attributes:

- Generation
- Appearance
- Colour
- Name
- Special features
- Speed
- Fertility

What about the quality levels and their characteristic?

The rarer the horses on the Blockchain the higher are the prices.

Each horse is also pre-assigned a speed
and other attributes which shall be important
while competing in the horse races.

Everyone can offer horses and put them up for sale.

Each horse has its own characteristics.

Besides, there are some fancy horses as well.

Some of these have dots, wings, unicorns or zebra type.

These fancy horses are very rare
and have very high collector value.

However, they do not have any special speed.

What about horse breeding?

For mating two horses,
one Stallion and one Mare are required by each user.

If a horse breeder lacks a particular gender then it cannot breed
and shall require another horse of opposite gender before breeding.

Upon breeding, a new CryptoHorse with traits acquired
from its parents shall be available in your Ethereum wallet.

Depending upon the Gas price paid,
the approval of a transaction from Ethereum shall take place.

Mares are born often and Stallions are rare.

If an owner mates the horse very frequently
than the chances of breeding a mare is higher.

So it is not just a collectible anymore
– rather a self-sustainable community
of horses shall be created which can be traded on the Blockchain.

Is there a limit of horse breeding?

With an aim to create value for early investors
and adopters of the CryptoHorse ecosystem,
the number of times a horse can breed is limited to 4.

After each mating, there is a cooling period for
which the horse shall not be available for mating.

The cooling period increases after each mating:

- after first mating 15 min
- after second mating 120 min
- and after third mating 480 min
- After fourth mating, the horse cannot mate further.

However, it shall still be available
for participating in horse races.

What about the quality of breeding horses?

Breeding high-quality horses shall bear a high-quality offspring.

A user can also breed a fancy horse
if the parents have the requisite genetic material.

Is there a breeding fee?

The breeding fee is approximately between 0.002 ETH to 0.04 ETH
and can be changed several times during a day.

This measure is to control inflation or deflation of the market.

What about buying or selling horses?

A user after buys a horse he can put it up for sale
by going to the Stable.

The price is decided by the seller and a willing buyer is
able to complete the transaction
by paying the specified price to the seller.

Is there a fee for the sale of a horse?

A small part (5%) from the sale proceeds
of the seller goes to the CryptoHorse team.

Why does the born child look similar to the parents?

The parents' DNA is being inherited.

My horse is not shown?

Go to the stable and check if you are in the Mainnet.

Can I use my CryptoHorse in other blockchain games?

Yes, you can use it at CryptoRome.
We are very proud about our partnership
with CryptoRome, another blockchain game.

They have taken ERC-721 tokens from us
and called them War Horses in CryptoRome.
There will only be 50 battle horse ever created.

Owners of these tokens can go race
them over in CryptoHorse and can use them in battle in CryptoRome.

games that integrated in-game assets across
the two blockchain-based games, the War Horse.
