We redeveloped the Scarcity Gold contract to achieve a two main things:
Ensure that gold can be deflationary, which reduces its supply relative to demand over time thereby defending its value.
Allowing governance of the variable parameters of the gold smart contract formula, with a view to optimising the game economy.
The Scarcity Gold Supply Formula
The formula is written simply as follows:
A * ((level - 1) ^ 2) + B * (level - 1) + C + D / (level - 1).
The variables A, B, C & D adjust the gold supply. Their values will be set through governance by $SGV token holders initially with a voting mechanism as is typical in many other projects but ultimately aiming at DAO owners.
