How to join the races? 🤔

  1. Select the race you want to participate in from the “Race” section. An NFT horse can be registered for one race only at the same time. If you try to register for more races it will show that the horse is “On cooldown”
Choose the race from “Races” section (example from testnet)

Tip: Register for the earlier race first and after it ended register for the one happening later

2. Once you have chosen the race to participate in, select the horse to race, pay the entry fee and you’re good to go!

Watch the races either live or watch the 3D recording of the races at your leisure! You can find all the recorded races in the “Results” section. (After the entry fee is paid and the horse is registered, it is impossible to withdraw from the race. The races are run automatically so you don’t even need to be present.)

3. After race is run, the winners are announced and the winnings are automatically allocated to their wallets (it takes a few minutes for the winnings to show up, please be patient).

4. After the race, the horse racing cool-down begins and it lasts for 10 minutes. During this time you won’t be able to register your horse for any races. After the race is run and racing cool down has ended you can register for a races again

How to participate in the races?

DeRace hippodrome

In the game beta version all the races will take place in the main — DeRace — hippodrome. The races will vary in the maximum number of the NFT horses that can participate (up to 12 horses per race) as well as the length of the race track.

The DeRace hippodrome surface in the current game version is made of dirt initially and we will gradually make other surfaces available too.

Make sure to race your horse in races with different race track lengths to find out what type of races your horse prefers. NFT horse performance depends on racetrack length and some horses are excellent in short distances while others are outstanding in long ones.

Winning the race

The best part of the races of course is winning them! Top 3 race winners share the prize pool which is 95% of the all collected entry fees.

The announcement of the winning horses

You can see the maximum amount of the winnings in the Races section under each race. The final prize pool can be viewed after registration deadline has passed and also in the results section.

After the race is run, the winners are announced and the won $DERC are automatically allocated to their wallets. View all your race winnings in the “Winnings” section.

You can observe horse winning statistics under the “Career” section, which indicates how many 1st, 2nd and 3rd places a horse has won. From this information you can speculate the horse’s performance on the race track.
