Genetics Game for Pig Images

A pig-image native-token service for the Cardano blockchain, powered by the PIGY Token.

Address: addr1q8pwed0hrx7hpa5nq8rmdpevd76jm5mg593y9z3vrwx34tepw48w6a0hwrrr5gt7y2wa5zss0zqgk3zp55nqylndmudsr9jxpd


Please read the important disclaimer regarding the use of this service.

This game on the Cardano blockchain is a simple image-generating service that is powered by the PIGY Token. Sending the PIGY Token and ADA to the address above will either mint, blend, or burn Cardano native tokens, each with a customized image of a pig.

The images can be viewed by visiting the IPFS link in the minting metadata for the token, or by visiting a token-viewing explorer such as pool.pm/tokens.

The image-blending process randomly combines attributes of the “parent” images to create a new “child” image. Carefully chosen blending strategies can produce “offspring” with particular target characteristics. Click here to see the “family tree” for the first pig-image tokens created using this service.

If no PIGY or if too little ADA is sent in the transaction, the service will not automatically mint, blend, or burn the pig-image token; nevertheless, the funds will be returned to the sending address via a manually-constructed transaction, in which case there may be a considerable delay (hours or days) in receiving them back. If you fail to receive the pig-image token, please check the metadata in the refund transaction to learn why it failed.

Work is in progress to add facial expression, clothing, jewelry, badges, and other accoutrements to the pig images. Eventually, this service will be migrated to a smart contract.

Please post suggestions or problems here.


Examples

Minting Blending Burning
Instructions Send 2.0 ADA and 1 PIGY to the address above, and soon receive back a new pig-image token, along with the original inputs minus the ~0.20 ADA transaction fee. Sending more than 1 PIGY does not mint more than one pig-image token. An example transaction is here. Send 2.5 ADA and 1 PIGY and two pig-image tokens to the address above, and soon receive back a new pig-image token that blends characteristics of the original two tokens, along with the original inputs minus the ~0.22 ADA transaction fee. An example transaction is here Send 2.0 ADA and 1 PIGY and one pig-image token to the address above, in order to burn the pig-image token and soon receive back the original inputs minus the ~0.20 ADA transaction fee. An example transaction is here.

Warnings:
  • If less ADA than the minimum specified in the table above is provided or if no PIGY is provided, then no image token will be sent back.
  • Sending more than one PIGY in the transaction does not mint multiple pig-image tokens.
  • It is preferable to send all of the tokens in a single transaction. When sending them in separate transactions, the minting will occur as soon as sufficient PIGY and ADA are received. Therefore, please send the PIGY as the last transaction in the series.
