Echelon Prime ($PRIME) is a Web3 ecosystem on Ethereum advancing the next generation of gaming. Echelon creates and distributes tools to encourage innovation in, and promote the growth of, novel gaming models and economies. The first game to adopt and utilize PRIME is Parallel, a sci-fi trading card game.
Echelon's unique ecosystem, including the PRIME token economy, is designed to establish the foundations for a novel gaming and collecting environment supportive of P2E mechanisms. Echelon's technological architecture, token economy, and ecosystem governance modules are designed to provide value to three primary stakeholder groups:
- Players and Collectors. 30% of the initial PRIME token supply (and via sink redistribution, significantly more) is earnable via a P2E, skill-based emissions format. This pool supports P2E gaming projects utilizing the PRIME token and Echelon smart contract ecosystem. PRIME holders gain access to various ecosystem features and perks including governance rights, priority access to NFT sales, and more.
- Content Producers. Projects that build within the Echelon ecosystem have access to Echelon’s smart contracts and ecosystem. Projects within Echelon’s ecosystem have the incentive to make their assets and IP interoperable and available to each other in order to support a unified ecosystem and share in development overhead.
- Ecosystem Managers. Holders of PRIME are responsible for community treasury allocations, system smart contract auditing, and the election of foundation members. The Echelon Prime Foundation, a board of elected members who stake PRIME for candidacy and as slashable collateral to ensure responsible behavior, have general oversight of the Echelon Prime Foundation and ensure community-based decisions are fulfilled and finalized.
The Echelon ecosystem is not intended to serve any singular project, game, or set of collectibles. Rather, Echelon is designed to provide infrastructure to support a larger gaming and collecting ecosystem that is envisioned to extend beyond any particular project. Over time, a broad, decentralized community of gamers and collectors will determine Echelon’s evolution and priorities.
