PRPS & DUBI Guide - What Are PRPS & DUBI?

Updated December 15, 2019

Introduction

What are PRPS and DUBI, and how do they relate to Clash of Streamers?

PRPS (Purpose) and DUBI (Decentralized Universal Basic Income) are cryptocurrencies created with the intent of providing a universal basic income to people in third world countries, and hopefully to the rest of the world as well.

While quite an ambitious idea, there are already pilot programs planned with the help of the reputable charity organization, Save the Children. There is already research being done to determine the viability of the first planned pilot program which is said to be set in Uganda.

Check out this Save the Children page for more info on the planned pilot program.

For the meantime, these cryptocurrencies have various uses within Clash of Streamers. In fact, Clash of Streamers is actually the first mainstream game to fully integrate and implement cryptocurrencies as a core gameplay mechanic.

In this guide you will learn all about how PRPS and DUBI are used in Clash of Streamers, as well as how you can acquire some if your interest is to potentially make money or gain an edge in-game.

Clash of Streamers Functionality

Although PRPS and DUBI are usually mentioned within the same context, they have slightly different uses.

The cryptocurrency PRPS has the following uses:

  • Can be used to purchase loot on the Gaming for Good shop (can purchase Gems, Crypton, Madness Chips, Insanity Chips, Ascendance Chips, and more)

These are some of the best purchases you can get in terms of loot per dollar. In fact, in most cases, spending money on the Gaming for Good shop is the best and cheapest way to accumulate a ton of Gems and Crypton.

You can find more info about the different Gaming for Good shop purchases inside of the Pay-to-Play Guide.

While the uses on the Gaming for Good shop are significant and will help drive the value of PRPS up quite a lot, it's not as significant as what can be done with DUBI.

The cryptocurrency DUBI has the following uses:

  • Can be used to purchase loot on the Gaming for Good shop (can purchase Gems, Crypton, Madness Chips, Insanity Chips, Ascendance Chips, and more)
  • Can be used in-game in the Blockchain building to buy/sell heroes and pets
  • Can be used in-game in the Blockchain building to rent heroes and pets
  • Can be used in-game in the Blockchain building to empower heroes and pets
  • Can be bought and sold in-game in the Blockchain building for Ethereum

The use cases inside of the Blockchain building is what distinguishes PRPS from DUBI within the context of Clash of Streamers.

DUBI is extremely important because it's the main component which allows players to potentially make money in Clash of Streamers.

For in-depth information on this aspect of the game, check out the following guides:

All of these mechanics within the Clash of Streamers universe help to create the most advanced cryptocurrency integration in the context of a video game. Not only that, but there is no other cryptocurrency integrated game in existence which is as mainstream as Clash of Streamers!

While a lot of players may try to make money with DUBI through the Blockchain, money can also potentially be made simply buy purchasing PRPS and DUBI - which brings us to the next point!

Speculation

In addition to its direct use within the Blockchain building as well as the Gaming for Good shop, some people might see an opportunity to make money through PRPS and DUBI.

That is, if you were to purchase PRPS or DUBI, you could earn money as the value increases from other players purchasing the cryptocurrencies for use in Clash of Streamers.

For example, as of January 1st, 2019, PRPS and DUBI are priced at approximately $2.16 USD. If you bought PRPS or DUBI at this price, and the price ended up going to $4.32, then you have double your original purchasing power.

You would be able to purchase double the amount of loot on the Gaming for Good shop than what you originally could have if you simply bought a package when the price was at $2.16.

For this reason, there will likely be many people that buy PRPS and DUBI with the intention of holding it for long periods of time, as well as many people that will buy PRPS and DUBI with the intention of instantly buying some Gaming for Good shop packs.

If you are looking for a relatively safe method of making money through Clash of Streamers, purchasing PRPS or DUBI is one potential option. As long as Clash of Streamers continues to grow and thrive, there will likely be many players looking to purchase some deals on the Gaming for Good shop and use DUBI in the Blockchain building.

However, as a disclaimer, we are not promising or guaranteeing that the value of PRPS and DUBI will increase.

We are simply doing our best to educate players on all opportunities Clash of Streamers related. We believe that the prices of PRPS and DUBI will grow due to the demand brought about through the Gaming for Good shop and Blockchain building, but it is far from a guarantee.

There is always an element of risk involved when you are speculating on the price of certain assets!

How to Get PRPS & DUBI

There are many steps involved if you are looking to get PRPS or DUBI. Because of this, we have split this info up into a separate guide with different sections so that beginners and veterans alike can quickly find the information they need.

Check out this page for a guide on how to purchase PRPS or DUBI.

Locking PRPS & More

One of the most interesting features PRPS has is its ability to create DUBI. This is implemented through a sort of locking functionality.

Essentially, you can lock away your PRPS for a period of 3, 6, or 12 months (making your PRPS inaccessible), and receive 1%, 2%, or 4% back in the form of DUBI.

For example, if you lock 1000 PRPS for 3 months, you will instantly receive 10 DUBI in return (since 1% of 1000 = 10).

When your PRPS is locked, it will be inaccessible for the designated time period. Once the time period is over, you can release your locked PRPS and do whatever you want with it again.

To lock your PRPS, you need to do the following:

  1. Install Metamask on your browser and import your Ethereum wallet into Metamask.
  2. Head to the decentralized exchange DubiEx, connect your Metamask wallet, and then click HODL PRPS in the top right.
  3. Choose the amount of PRPS you wish to lock and the time period to lock the PRPS for (3, 6, or 12 months), click lock, and confirm the transaction.
  4. After locking your PRPS and waiting for the transaction to complete, you should receive DUBI based on the time period selected (1% for 3 months, 2% for 6 months, 4% for 12 months).
  5. After waiting out the lock period, head back to DubiEx and go back to the HODL PRPS page to release your locked PRPS.

That's it - pretty simple!

Locking your PRPS can be a great way to potentially earn more money. You can sell the earned DUBI (in-game or on DubiEx), or simply use the DUBI within the Blockchain building in Clash of Streamers with the hopes of earning some money by renting your heroes and pets.

In addition to the obvious benefits the extra DUBI might bring, by locking your PRPS, you are lowering the circulating supply and making it more difficult for other people to acquire. As a result, you are likely increasing the demand (and price) of PRPS.

While this is such a simple mechanic, it can be an extremely good way to help you earn extra DUBI while contributing to the entire goal behind PRPS and DUBI.

Although this doesn't cover everything related to PRPS and DUBI, it covers pretty much all of the most important information that you need to know.

It's simply too much for this guide to contain a full synopsis on the history and full mechanics involved with PRPS and DUBI. Since we are trying to keep this guide money-making and Clash of Streamers related, we won't be going over PRPS and DUBI any more than we already have.
