With the revamp of the MicroPets staking rewards pools, the ability for users to evolve their pets was launched. Evolution benefits the ecosystem in several ways: Reducing overall NFT supply through a burning mechanic, increasing overall rarity as there are less pets in circulation and opening the doors to future crate releases as there’s more “room” in overall staking power.
Users simply select an adult pet to evolve and are prompted to select a pet from the same crate that’s equal or higher in rarity to burn. The pet enters a 14 day incubation period, which upon completion can be collected and staked into the Evolution pool. Boosters are available on the shop for purchase, which cut this time down by a maximum of seven days.
