Reward pool's final move

Yesterday after the fork we finally did our final move from steem to hive. Sold 21326 STEEM and bought 17066 HIVE.

From now on, the reward pool is only in HIVE. And it's worth more than 1 BTC.

Incoming update: taxes

Inflation is always crucial when it comes to tokeneconomics. We informed our players before that SIM token inflation is too high and will be reworked with an upcoming update. Here is how it's going to work:

Players will elect a president for 14 days and he/she will decide about game boosts/taxes.

1 income tax - based on SIM price

This one is based on the average SIM token price over the last 3 days, when price goes down, this tax should go up and decrease inflation and vice versa when the token price going up. If price is 0.005 Hive per 1 SIM this tax = 0%.

2 police tax - funding police

The President funds the police with this tax, and can make it work 4x better. 1% tax.

3 education tax - funding education

The President can boost education by 10% but it will cost players 5% of their daily income.

4 art tax - tax to fund Artists

The President can boost creativity by 10% but it will cost players 5% of daily income.

5 war tax - funding war

When The President declares war, players pay a 10% tax and 80% of that goes to the Military Industrial Complex (one of the new upcoming buildings) owners.

6 eco tax - tax for eco program

For a 5% tax The President can boost income from Wind Turbines and Solar Panels (new buildings).

7 jobs tax - funding jobs program

For a 5% tax The President can double the effects of the Job Agency (a new builiding with an effect on training)

8 basic tax - just basic tax

Basic tax from 1-20%. The President can use it to reduce SIM inflation.

The update is almost ready, so you can expect another post soon explaning all of the new buildings and mechanics.

I love this city game.

Good move transferring everything to HIVE. Steem will just be another MySpace!

Thats a lot of taxes! :D
This looks like an amazing update!

Very interesting. This tax element will likely make the game much more complex. Can not always hoard a specific card anymore.

Congrats to the winners!

Waiting for the updates :)

Will be interesting how things will look like with all the new mechanics.

Good news all in all!
Thanks for the update.

Congrats on building a stack of more than 1 BTC! Glad the game is moving forward! 😀

Yikes Getting more complicated now.

Uhh, a president.

Great! Looking forward to the update.

Good call in the Hive move steem is too unstable with the current climate. I like the tax updates too. This should be interesting.

Congrats to all the other winners, really good articles!

I LOVE Dcity!😀

I saw this game the other day, and it's piqued my interest. I do like a good resource-management, city-building simulator. I'll have to give this a go someday soon. How long has this been out?

few months, but at the beginning it was just discord game. Slowly building up more complex mechanics

Sounds pretty fantastic! Keep it up :-)

Thanks so much . It is an honor to be one of the winners.

Thanks for the HIVE, glad to see dCity moving away from STEEM and 100% to HIVE!

100% on Hive is definitely good news. Cheers!

I made the top 120 in under a week.
I'm aiming for the Top 50 using 1 Hive-based card purchase and SIM Marketplace trades only.
How long does everyone think it will take?

Nice :) From days to months, depending on your Marketplace trades.

Whoot, congratz to all the winners

And a !BEER for you

Congrats, you beautiful tutorial people! And well done!

Also, well swapped :)

And well taxed-to-be ;)


...and some $trdo while we're at it ;-)

Pretty great achievements and nice to see this community evolving and making a city for the future. Hope for the best!
