Zed Run is a Polygon-based digital horse racing play-to-earn game. In the game, players can buy and breed their digital horses to race all over different tracks.
The game blends the use of NFT and DeFi with an immersive gaming experience and excellent graphics. In the horse racing world, players can own thoroughbred racehorses to compete with other players for in-game rewards.
It provides a sustainable ecosystem where players can freely hold monetary value with their NFT assets and compete in an exciting world of horse racing. All you have to do is create an excellent stable and build your legacy by ruling the racetrack.
Horses in Zed Run are uniquely created NFT assets with distinguishing special traits like bloodline, racetrack performance, and genotype. Meanwhile, the better your horse’s performance on the track, the greater your earnings and the higher its value.
However, you don’t have to race your horse before you earn with Zed Run. You can also wager on other people’s horses and win rewards when they win.
Zed Run Gameplay
Getting started in Zed Run is simple; all you have to do is create an account and get a racehorse. However, when getting a racehorse, take note of its bloodline and genotype.
Bloodlines include Nakamoto, Szabo, Finney, and Buterin. They determine the ability and price of the horse.
Apart from this, bloodline ranges from z1 to z268, and they can be classified into genesis, legendary, exclusive, elite, cross, and pacer breed types.
Breed types also help determine the genotype of a horse. For instance, the rarest breed type, Genesis, has genotypes z1 to z10. These breed types are the top racers of the game.
You can breed a new racehorse with a Filly, a female horse, or a Colt, a male one. Filly or Colt horses are a pure breed with no offspring yet, therefore. Your male horse can breed three times a month, while the female can do that once a month.
Combining horses of high breeding type can birth a non-genesis racehorse with super racing abilities by retaining traits from both sides of the parent.
Meanwhile, a new horse that has not raced before starts their life as Griffins. Unraced horses have base ratings which are determined by their genotype. Therefore, the first performance on the track depends on their base rating.
Once a Griffin starts to race, they proceed to higher racing classes, from class 5 as the lowest and class 1 as the highest.
Horses can improve their rating by competing and winning races and tournaments. Players can also participate in free races to gain experience and improve their horses.
Steps to Transfer Horse From Opensea to Zed Run
After getting your Horse on the Opensea marketplace, all you have to do is refresh your Zed Run stable if you used the same wallet for your Zed Run and Opensea account.
