Arkadiko Protocol

Hello Arkadians

Arkadiko is excited to announce the next phase of the Arkadroids project ! This blog post will shed some more light on what the Arkadroids are and how you can get hold of one!

Enter the Arkadroids

In a distant future, the world has become interconnected by a vast electronic network that permeates every aspect of life. This network was discovered in the Arkadiko laboratory when it was found that Blockchain and its encrypted energy could be used as a power source for the first successful humanoid AI- the Arkadroid. In their research, the team at Arkadiko also discovered this newly found energy source could be used as a cybernetic implant allowing humans to access the data of the open source network of Bitcoin and Stacks freely. As much as these discoveries are breakthroughs they have opened up gateways to even more confusion on the questions of humanity.

Will Humanity be able to coexist with the Arkadroids? Time will tell.

The Arkadroids are an NFT collection created to honor the existence of Arkadiko and to celebrate its 9 month anniversary. They also served as an excellent starting point on Clarity development for our new developer Yannis. This allowed him to gain further experience with the Stacks stack (pun intended).

The Arkadroid NFT collection is constructed with a stable base picture of an Arkadroid, with 6 variations based on which token the Arkadroid is affiliated to. We’ve made the selection to include any token within the Arkadiko ecosystem so we have the following types of Arkadroids:

STX Arkadroid
BTC Arkadroid
USDA Arkadroid
DIKO Arkadroid
Lydian Arkadroid

The final 6th variation is the Arkadiko Arkadroid featuring the Arkadiko logo and representing our community. In total, 19 copies of each Arkadroid exist with a silver skin while there also exists a unique, golden Arkadroid. This brings the total number of Arkadroids to 120.

The first five token-related Arkadroids have already been earned through your past behavior on our platform. A snapshot was taken at block number 68424 on july 21th, the 9 month anniversary of our platform.

The Arkadiko Arkadroid can be earned through a series of social media interactions. Everyone reading this has a fair chance to receive one of these, so make sure you don’t miss out.

Final remarks

The Arkadroids are meant to be a fun addition to the Arkadiko ecosystem. Who knows what adventures they get themselves into in the future? It is up to all of us to write their legacy.

For all of us on this DeFi journey on Stacks, we are joined by the Arkadroid lifeform in the near future. Their presence will most certainly be felt as they open our minds to the potential of financial applications on top of Stacks and Arkadiko!
