Nine Chronicles, the open-source decentralized idle RPG, has announced a proposal aimed at ensuring a sustainable and healthy protocol. The proposal is a response to community complaints about unethical activities negatively impacting the player's experience. The developers propose various changes to combat these issues and maintain the sustainability of the Nine Chronicles protocol.
One of the unethical activities mentioned is owning more than one account, which can give players an advantage in areas where the mainnet is unable to respond due to its openness. The proposal introduces rules to combat these abnormal behaviors, including placing a fee for the transfer of NCG and adding an AP cost for shop-related actions during gameplay.
The changes will be implemented in two updates, with the first change for Crystal Transfer only possible from designated addresses that the community agrees with. This change is planned to go live for update v100370, while the fee for transferring NCG through this action is scheduled for update v100380. These changes will deter and track down abnormal account behaviors, which involve withdrawing small amounts of funds in bulk.
The proposal aims to maintain a sustainable and healthy protocol while improving the player's experience. While no voting will take place, the developers aim to inform users of the reasons for their actions and their ongoing efforts to improve Nine Chronicles.
