What is Vulcan Forged?
Vulcan Forged is a community-based blockchain gaming ecosystem which develops its own play-to-earn games.
So far, the project offers eight different games, with each one allowing players to win, sell and upgrade their in-game assets to earn cryptocurrency.
Vulcan Forged started in December 2020 and has massively grown since, as their native currency PYR reaching a peak of $45 in December 2021.
The developers incentivise third party game designers to contribute to the project by offering them financial and mechanical support to get started.
Vulcan Forged’s most popular game is VulcanVerse, where players can buy and upgrade land and earn non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
The game is based on Greek and Roman mythology and its story is written by fantasy authors – promoting a true immersion into its fantasy world.

How does Vulcan Forged work?
Vulcan Forged was initially launched on the Ethereum blockchain, but since has moved most of its features on Polygon.
PYR is the primary utility currency of Vulcan Forged and once won, it can be used across all games.
The token can be used for purchasing NFTs, staking in-game assets and upgrading land and NFTs.
As users buy and sell in the games, the marketplace collects fees from the transactions and puts them into a reward pool, from which staking participants can claim rewards.
As of January 2022, 1 PYR costs $11.38 (£8.41).
LAVA is the secondary utility token in Vulcan Forged.
It gets awarded to players who actively participate in the gameplay and engage with other users.
LAVA can be spent on a variety of things, such as upgrading land, Vulcanites (creatures accompanying you on your journey) and Gods, buying in-game items and entering tournaments.
It can also be sold on VulcanDEX – a decentralised platform dedicated to exchanging gaming tokens.
The primary assets that can be owned are Land, Vulcanites, Gods, and Items.
