One of the issues affecting the performance of in-game tokens is tying them to the governance token. Doing this means that it can be influenced by people not playing the game, such as investors and speculators.
We have segregated our two tokens to ensure this doesn’t happen. The OpiPets utility token is separated from the governance token to protect the community from external speculators whose only goal is to profit, in turn, impacting the value earned by players’ in-game activities.
It’s not fun to watch your time and value washed away by token volatility for the benefit of crypto investors. Protecting our community from traditional play-and-earn models that are exposed to external price manipulation provides them with stability regarding token reward rates.
