What is Aurory?

What Is Aurory? Aurory is a tactical, turn-based, NFT-creature battler JRPG built on the Solana Blockchain. Players are invited to explore a rich and diverse universe where they will travel across the worlds of Antik and Tokané as they complete quests, discover lost relics, defeat enemies, and compete against other players using creatures called “Nefties”. These magical creatures can be hatched, evolved, traded, used to battle, and have been designed as non-fungible tokens (NFTs). They will accompany players as they embark on their adventure through a variety of immersive game modes in this compelling JRPG. The single-player mode (PvE), features an epic storyline with parallels to the crypto-universe, told through aesthetically colorful art and delivered with high quality production value. Players are taught all about crypto, blockchain, NFTs, and more through an engaging story about the adventures of our heroes, Sam and Helios. In the multiplayer (PvP) mode, players will learn how to best use their assets and rise to the top of the leaderboard, competing against other players. The project bridges the gap between traditional pfp projects and AAA gaming. In October, 2021, Aurory launched it’s own 10k pfp NFT project called “Aurorians”. The team then had 10,000 unique 3D models created and in May 2022, they launched their first playable NFT experience. This would allow Aurorian holders to play with their unique Aurorian as the protagonist in the game’s PvE story mode. Who Are The Founders of Aurory? The Aurory Project was co-founded in 2021 by Yann Penno, the project’s Creative Art Director, and Sym (Paul), the project’s Marketing and Operations Lead. Penno brings long-standing experience in the gaming industry with 14 years of work as a 2D/3D animator and art/creative director for indie games. His colorful visual style and cute characters are exemplary for the design of Aurory and are somewhat reminiscent of Dragonball-Z. Sym has been a full-time investor in cryptocurrencies since 2019. What Makes Aurory Unique? The Aurory team has been growing rapidly and as of May 2022, the project is composed of 60 talents, many of them former Ubisoft, EA, and Gameloft employees that collectively garner over 400 years of experience in building AAA video games. The project is also advised by Tristan Yver, the Head of Strategy at FTX.US, Darren Lau and Daryl Lau, of Not3Lau Capital, and Grégoire Le Jeune, General Partner at Geometry. Aurory utilizes the same play-and-earn game mechanics that have made other projects like Axie Infinity (AXS) wildly successful. One of the key differences with Aurory is that it is free-to-play, giving it a low barrier to entry that allows anyone, regardless of their crypto/gaming experience or financial situation, to start playing Aurory and owning their in-game assets, with zero up-front investment. The team is taking the approach of prioritizing creating a fun game, with a sustainable economic model to attract gamers who will stick around and reinvest, rather than farmers only looking to extract value. Some notable features that reinforce this idea consist of the following: • Seasonal releases of content every 6 months will allow for new regions to be explored, new characters and quests, and new revelations about the greater Aurory Universe. • Seasonal competitions and e-sports tournaments. • Deflationary mechanisms are engineered into the economy to balance the supply of inflationary assets like Eggs and Nefties. • Nefty creatures have randomly generated skills and attributes that make the probability of having two Nefties with the same stats, 1 in 15 million. • The game features an Aurory native, $AURY driven marketplace that allows the trading of all in-game assets. What Is $AURY? The multi-utility ecosystem token, $AURY, is at the heart of the economy and fuels all operations. It represents a financial stake in the game, permits access to PvP modes via staking, and will ultimately be used to access dungeons. It has a fixed supply of 100 million tokens and can be earned from both PvE and PvP game modes as well as through staking. The initial token circulation was 9.5% of total $AURY supply, with 7% coming from public sale (IDO), and another 2.5% that went to exchanges as liquidity. $AURY Use Cases: • The buying and selling of assets in the Aurory Marketplace. • Required as a fee for hatching eggs to obtain Nefties. • Used for sending Aurorian NFTs on Expeditions (NFT Staking), • Access to PvP by staking a minimum amount. • Liquidity mining. The $AURY token also has two of its own sub-currencies: OKA and TOKE. In their most basic form, these sub-currencies behave as an accounting mechanism that allows the distribution of revenues generated by players and can only be found in-game (not as SPL tokens). At the end of each week, both are exchanged for a corresponding amount of $AURY. OKA is the sub-currency used in the accounting mechanism for financially invested players. It will be used to reward players for victories in both PvE and PvP modes. Depending on difficulty levels, victorious players will receive varying amounts of OKA that will be converted to $AURY at the end of each week from the reward pool for financially vested players. TOKE is the sub-currency used as the accounting mechanism for Free-To-Play players. It will be used to reward player victories only in the PVE mode. Like with OKA, the amount of TOKE received by victorious players will be based on the difficulty level and will be converted to $AURY at the end of each week from a reward pool for F2P players. The $AURY token can be traded on both centralized and decentralized exchanges, as well as on Aurory’s own in-game marketplace. In the future, it will also act as Aurory’s governance token, allowing holders to vote on important game-development decisions. How Is the Aurory Network Secured? Aurory is powered by the Solana blockchain. The team selected Solana for its fast transaction times and minuscule transaction fees as well as the minimal environmental impact compared to other blockchains. Solana is a layer one blockchain with a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism with partial Byzantine Fault Tolerance. It has 200 nodes operating worldwide that can, at their peak, process up to 50,000 transactions per second. Solana performs a set of coordinated optimizations to achieve such impressive performance and processes transactions in a multi-threaded way, which sets it apart from slower blockchains. Where Can I Trade $AURY? You can trade AURY on FTX, Kucoin, Huobi, Raydium, and Orca.

What is a DCA-CC Calculator and How to Use it?

If you want to test out your investment strategy, you'll need to understand how it works and what you're hoping to achieve. This is where the DCA-CC calculator comes in - it can help you see if your strategy will generate the return you want.

The calculator is separated into two modes: the dollar cost average calculator and the lump sum investing calculator. You can use either one to budget for your investments on a regular basis, or to invest all your money at once.

To use the DCA-CC, start by entering a DCA or lump sum investment amount. Then, select the time period, interval, and investment you want to use. The calculator will show you how your strategy would perform under those conditions. You can also experiment with different parameters to see how they affect your results.

And that's not all! The DCA-CC also lets you see how your investment would fare if you used the lump sum strategy. So if you're not sure which approach is right for you, this calculator can help you compare and make the best decision.

What is DCA (Dollar Cost Averaging)?

DCA is like buying a little bit of your favorite cryptocurrency each week or month regardless of the price. By buying equal dollar amounts at regular intervals, you're helping to smooth out the bumps of a volatile market.

Think of it as when buying a house. When you want to buy a house, you don't just fork over all the cash upfront. You make a down payment, and then you pay the mortgage every month. Over time, the house is yours.

DCA is like that, but with investments. You spread your investment out over time, so you're less likely to buy when the market is high. And just like with a house, you eventually own more and more of your investment.

By buying a little bit of your favorite cryptocurrency each day, week or month, you're making small, regular payments that will help you get the coin you want without waiting for a price dip.

Of course, there is always the risk that the price of the coin could continue to fall. However, this risk can be mitigated by using DCA when the market is trending upwards.

How to use DCA-CC to backtest your dollar cost average strategy?

Do you want to know how effective your dollar cost averaging strategy would have been in the past? The DCA-CC calculator can tell you for sure!

This tool is designed to help you backtest your investment strategy, so you can compare it against other strategies and decide which one is best for you.

When you first use the tool, we'll make some assumptions about your potential investment. For example, we'll assume you're investing $10 in bitcoin every week for the past three years.

Of course, you can change the parameters at any time to get more accurate results. So why wait? Use the DCA-CC calculator tool now and find out how your investment strategy would have fared in the past.

DCA Widgets

Top 3 cards

Value in FIAT, BTC selling price and Total investment cards are the easiest to understand. However, we'll give a little more explanation:

What is DCA Value in FIAT card?

The Value in FIAT card is a great way to see the value of your investments after a dollar cost averaging period. This card can help you understand how DCA affects the value of your investment over time.

The scale on the lower part of the widget displays the investment to interest ratio. In other words: it shows how much of your investment is lost or how much was added to your investment due to the earnings.

What does the DCA Value in FIAT card show?

This card lets you know how much your cryptocurrency is worth in Fiat currency at the end of your investment period. In other words, the price you sell it at.

The card also shows you the price of your first order, so you can see how the market volatility affects your investment over time.

Lastly, the card shows the ratio of the selling price to the average price. This is helpful in determining the value of your investment strategy and how it impacts the selling price.

What is a DCA Total Investment card?

The total investment card calculates how much money you would have invested, given an initial investment and an investment interval, over a specified period of time.

For example, if you invest $100 every month for 3 years, the total investment card would show you how much money you would have invested at the end of those 3 years.


We are presenting two charts here: a chart of earnings over time, and a chart of price over time. These charts can help provide context and perspective, and allow you to see what would be different if you entered or exited the market at a different time.

Earnings over time

This chart shows how much money you've made over time from your investments. It includes your balance in FIAT (the dollar equivalent of cryptocurrencies) as well as your total investment up to that day.

BTC price over time

This chart shows the price of a given cryptocurrency over time, as well as the average cost of a cryptocurrency on any given day.

This chart can help you understand the value of dollar cost averaging as a strategy, and how it may impact your earnings.

What is a Fact card?

The Fact card is an automated message that summarises all the information from all the charts in a short, sharable sentence.

What is Profit/Loss card?

The Profit/Loss card is a tool that can help you to better manage your risks by understanding how often you might be making a profit. As with everyhing else here, this card can provide guidance and clarity in your decision-making process.

What is Purchase history?

What you'll find here is a table of purchase data, which includes information like how much cryptocurrency you could buy with the money invested on a given day, or how much you would have profited or lost at a given point in history.

What is Lump Sum Investing strategy?

Lump sum investing strategy is a method of investing where you invest a fixed sum of money all at once. This is in contrast to dollar-cost averaging, where you spread your investment into several installments over a period of time.

Lump sum investing has its pros and cons. On the plus side, you only have to make the investment decision once. And, if you’re investing in a volatile asset like cryptocurrency, you may benefit from buying when prices are low and selling when prices are high. On the downside, you could end up buying at the top of a market bubble – and we all know how those end.

So, should you go with lump sum investing or dollar-cost averaging? That depends on your investment goals and your personal risk tolerance. If you’re the type of person who can stomach the ups and downs of the market, and you believe in the long-term potential of the asset you’re investing in, then lump sum investing may be the way to go.

How to use DCA-CC to backtest your lump sum investment strategy?

DCA-CC is a powerful, easy to use backtesting tool that can be used to test and optimise your investment strategy.

The DCA-CC calculator will help you calculate the performance of your investment strategy across different market conditions.

You can also compare your performance against other strategies such as dollar cost averaging.

It's easy to use and only takes a few seconds to set up.

Here's how it works:

  1. Enter the amount of money you want to invest.

  2. Choose the cryptocurrency you want to invest in.

  3. Choose a time range

  4. Press the "Calculate" button.

The DCA-CC calculator will then show you how much money you would have made if you had invested that money in the cryptocurrency at that price.

Lump Sum Widgets

Both lump sum investment and DCA widgets are very similar, yet the strategy we employ is different. Some data is presented differently, so we will mention only these differences here.

Top 3 cards

As with the DCA strategy, we have three key cards here: Value in FIAT, BTC selling price and Total investment.

What is a Lump sum selling price card?

This card displays the value of the chosen cryptocurrency - the current selling price.

It also displays the ratio of the current selling price to the buying price. This information is helpful in showcase the value of your investment strategy and its impact on your selling price over time.

What is a Lump sum Total Investment card?

The amount on the total investment card will always be different from the investment parameter you entered into the calculator. This is because we calculate the total investment using the DCA strategy. Doing this allows us to show you the impact of investing the same amount of money using two different strategies.

As a reminder, in the DCA strategy, the total investment card takes your initial investment and your investment interval and multiplies it over the time period provided.
