What players are able to purchase concretely in the Racerloop Shop ?

In the shop Racers will be able to get a number of elements to accelerate the progress of their ships and get more cosmetics.
Daily Offers: Racerloop will propose to players different daily offers with a special 24 hours discount. Offers will rotate every 24 hours
In Daily Offers, players will be able purchase daily deals with currencies they can earn by playing or they can get them for free:
• Parts (necessary to improve ship or build a new ship). Purchasable with: Astras or Exocredits
• Modules (improve the ship). Purchasable with: Astras or Exocredits
• Cores, Super Cores, Mega Cores, Hyper Cores, Ultra cores (necessary to level up parts). Purchasable with: Astras or Exocredits
• Loot Boxes. Purchasable with Astras, Exocredits or are Free
• Exocredits (Free)
• Astras (Free)
Loot Boxes (Chest): 4 types of fixed Loot Boxes are existing in the store which contain different pieces, modules, cosmetics, and currencies. They can be purchased only with Astras:
Example:
• Nano Chest: Common rarity items
• Gravity Chest: Rare rarity items
• Titanium Chest: Epic rarity items
• Quantum Chest: Legendary rarity items
Tickets: They are used to enter the Challenges and future Tournaments. These tickets have a cooldown which freely fills in over time. Users will be able to pay Astras (Hard Currency) for instant tickets refill (10 Tickets Max).
Charges (Energy System): The energy system helps us control the speed of unlocking content and monetize players' game time.
o Each ship has 6 charges and costs 1 charge per race.
o When finishing these charges, the player can buy Astras to instantly refill these Charges.
o The more ships a player has, the longer he can play without finishing his charges.
Assemble: When a ship is built or changed, it needs some assembly time before it can be used. The player can wait or buy and use Astras to skip the waiting time.
Exocredits: are the soft currency of the game. This currency is given to the player in many game situations. The higher the level of the player, the more Exo he will receive, but the cost of the needed items is much more expensive, so it will give the player the need to get Exocredits. Apart from playing the game, users can get Exocredits by converting Astras into Exocredits. There are 6 conversion packs from Astras to Exocredits. The higher the Astras converted, the higher the conversion rate will be.
Astras (IAPs): are the hard currency of the game. This currency is given to the player on a few occasions during gameplay. It is the most important currency in the game. A lot of items in the shop can only be purchased by Astras. Astras can be purchased in the shop with real money.
There are 6 Astras packs:
o 150 Astras: $4.99
o 330 Astras: $9.99
o 720 Astras: $19.99
o 1500 Astras: $39.99
o 1950 Astras: $49.99
o 4200 Astras: $99.99

What utility does this bring to the product?

The NFT parts and modules will be used to improve your ship and the NFT ships will help the player to improve their driving in the game. In addition, another great utility is the cosmetic part, which will be very interesting for the users, since each ship can have different colors, models and designs.

Does this product have a marketplace? What can I do with the things that I earn (or purchase)?

Yes, Racerloop has an external NFT market place.
The parts, modules, ships and certain cosmetics you earn in the game can be sold in the NFT Marketplace or you can buy all these items and use them in the game to improve your ship customization.

Can I use the product without interacting or engaging with blockchain, NFT, or cryptocurrency?

Yes, the user can decide not to interact with the blockchain part and therefore will not be able to buy and sell parts, modules and ships in the exrternal NFT Marketplace.
This will not prevent you from continuing to enjoy a complete experience, since you will be able to continue collecting parts, modules and ships. In addition, all users have at their disposal a Daily Offers section, where with soft currency/hard currency obtained for free by playing, they will be able to get parts, missing modules and in turn craft new and better ships.

What chain does this product use? Is the chain proof-of-work or proof-of-stake?

At the moment, Racerloop does not directly interact with any chain.
The Blink Galaxy ecosystem and its main token $GQ are designed to support multiple blockchains including BNB Chain, Polygon, and Ethereum (PoS), but this interaction does not occur directly in the game. Instead, it happens through the Blink Galaxy account, where users have the ability to perform various actions such as transferring and receiving tokens, saving transaction costs with each interaction, streamlining every process, and making the gaming experience seamless while the technical details happen under the hood.

Does this product require me to connect an external wallet? What wallets does this product support?

This is not required.
However, users can use funds they have deposited into their Blink Galaxy Account to purchase Astra in the game.
To do this:
1. Create your account at blinkgalaxy.com/signup
2. Connect your virtual wallet from your user profile using the "Link Wallet" option.
3. Transfer the token $GQ to your Blink Galaxy account to use it in-game.

Are there items (such as additional content, offers or currency) for sale that are used in the gameplay of your product?

Yes, we have items in the store that you can buy to enhance your ship and its customization. All these items can also be obtained by playing the game without the need to make real money purchases.

Can your product be used without making any in-app purchases?

Yes, in the game users are not obliged to buy any products and they can play the game completely free of charge.

Are in-app purchases refundable?

As with most downloadable software products, items bought in Racerloop (in-app purchases) are non-refundable.

What payment platform is used to facilitate these purchases? Do you use Epic Games’ platform or a 3rd-party (including your own) payment system?
