GMT Earning Mechanics

Level requirement

GMT earning is only available to Sneakers that reaches to Level 30.

Rule of Three Requirement

It is a mandatory requirement to have AT LEAST three Energy in order to start earning GMT.

Halving Mechanics

Each day, a set number of GMT will be unlocked to earn. The daily release of GMT follows exponential decay pattern, on the first day of the 3rd year, the daily GMT unlocked is exactly halved compared to the 1st day of GMT been available to earn.

Einstein Mechanics

God tirelessly plays dice under laws which he has himself prescribed
The system constantly adds randomness to Users’ GMT earning, which makes earning unpredictable. To avoid any extrapolation on earnings, the settlement of GMT will be done in every several mins.

Bitcoin Mechanic

The GMT earning per person are pro rata based just like the difficulty bomb in Bitcoin and Ethereum design but settles instantly. The more users earning GMT at a given time, the less GMT earning will be available per person. Vice Versa.

Comfort Mechanics

The more Comfort, the higher the earning. GMT earning formula will be released once the earning is enabled in the app.
