How to earn with BlockScores

BlockScores is based on royalty.

After creating a leaderboard, the game owner is receiving a benefit for every player added. The current rate is shown at the “Create leaderboard” section of the BlockScores DApp.

What does it cost

When creating a new BlockScores, a minor one-time-fee is transferred in ETH. The current price is shown in the “Create leaderboard” section of the BlockScores DApp.

When a player is added, a minor one-time-fee is transferred and split 50/50 between BlockScores and the game owner.

The fees are adjusted to ensure that ETH price fluctuations will not make this expensive at all.
