More About Nyan Heroes?

Currently undergoing pre-alpha testing, Nyan Heroes introduces players to a team-based hero shooter environment where whimsical feline characters control formidable mechs in competitive engagements to safeguard the world.

With eight distinct guardian classes, each equipped with unique abilities and agile, cat-like movements, players must secure objectives and overcome adversaries. The game's "augment weapon" system enables highly customizable mechs, providing a wide array of playstyles and opportunities for players to showcase their skills.

Andrew Cain from Mechanism Capital praised the game, remarking, “Nyan Heroes stands out as a captivating hero-shooter, offering fresh gameplay, endearing heroes, and enticing rewards in a manner previously unseen within the genre.”

Currently available for early access on the Epic Games Store, Nyan Heroes has introduced Airdrop missions, allowing the community to engage with $NYN, the token underpinning the Nyan Heroes Ecosystem, further enhancing the game's immersive experience and community engagement.

What is the $NYN Token?

The $NYN token is at the center of the team's latest Airdrop, serving as the ecosystem token. It facilitates value accrual through marketplace fees, mint fees, and studio revenue buybacks. With a fixed total supply, $NYN adopts deflationary mechanisms over time, correlated to network activity and marketplace transactions. Additionally, $NYN functions as a governance token with staking mechanisms.
