What is a Pookyball?
A digital collectible asset - also known as a non fungible token - issued by Pooky. Owning a Pookyball gives you access to the Play-and-Earn core gameplay of Pooky. Every Pookyball is designed by Serial Cut™ 3 Studio and has unique 3D visuals.
What is an NFT?
A Non-fungible token (NFT) is a unique digital identifier that cannot be copied, substituted, or subdivided. It is recorded on a blockchain and used to certify authenticity and ownership. Similar to cryptocurrencies, NFTs are digital assets that can be bought, kept, sold and traded using dedicated online marketplaces.
What is a Blockchain?
The Blockchain is a record of a series of time-stamped data that is immutable. It is managed by a decentralized network of computers, not by a single centralized system.
What blockchain do we use?
Pooky is built on the Polygon Blockchain. We chose Polygon for its high speed, low transaction fees (“gas fees”) and low carbon footprint.
Can I play if I don’t own a Pookyball?
Yes, Pooky has a "Free-to-Play" version who works on the same principle as our upcoming "Play-and-Earn" but your Pookyballs are untradable (these are not NFTs). This will allow you can try the game. If you want to access the Play-to-Earn game, you’ll need a tradable Pookyball. The Play-to-Earn game will be released in Febraury 2023.
How do I get a Pookyball?
Pookyballs will soon be available to buy on our platform. The Genesis sale is planned to coincide with the launch of the Play-and-Earn game in February 2023. If you want to get whitelisted you'll need to register and play the Free-to-play game.
Is there a whitelist to buy a Pookyball?
Yes, the only way to be whitelisted is to upgrade your Basic Pookyballs to level 10 in the Free-to-Play game. All whitelisted users will be able to Mint a special edition Pookyball.
Can I buy a Pookyball using a debit/credit card?
Yes, we want to make our games accessible to everyone. If you don’t have a crypto wallet (like Metamask), we will help you register with Sequence. This will allow you to buy cryptocurrencies with your Credit/Debit cards. Our mission is also to help everyone get started with web3.
What is the Pookyball price?
Prices vary between Rarity levels and we use MATIC as central currency. You can purchase by CreditCard in EUR/USD. - Common Pookyball costs 20 MATIC - Rare Pookyball costs 100 MATIC - Epic Pookyball costs 400 MATIC - Legendary Pookyball costs 1600 MATIC

Can I get a Pookyball for free?
Yes, top ranked players can win Pookyballs in the Free-to-Play mode.
Why are rarities important?
Every Pookyball has a Rarity at launch: Common, Rare, Epic or Legendary. Scarcer Pookyballs will have greater in-game value as their Attribute levels will give a bigger boost to the scored points. No matter which Pookyball you own, you will still need to be a skilled predictor to rank top on the weekly Leaderboards.
Every Pookyball has the same Attributes, including Home, Draw, Away, Offense, Defense and Exact Score. Depending on the Rarity each Attribute boost level is different. Attributes boost the number of scored points for correct predictions.
Points scored on a correct Home win prediction are boosted by the “Home” Attribute. For example, a player predicts Bayern Munich to beat Manchester United. If the prediction is correct, the “Home” attribute boost is applied. If Manchester United wins or the match is a draw, the player scores no points and no boost is applied.

What is $POK?
$POK, is a fungible, ERC-20 cryptocurrency token. $POK will serve as the native in-game currency and is earnt through the prediction game. $POK can be traded for other cryptocurrencies or used to level-up Pookyball Attributes.
What are the leaderboards?
Each Football Event has its own prediction competition and leaderboard. For each Matchday of the Event a new leaderboard is created. Players rank according to the points scored on all of a Matchday’s fixtures.
As a benchmark, the Premier League has 38 Matchdays (19 matches per team, home and away) of 10 fixtures.
