Clam Island Bivalvia Update

  1. Clams will have 10 different grades with fixed (instead of fluctuating) USD-pegged GEM prices. The SHELL tokens claimable from burning a live Clam also varies depending on the Clam grade, with lower grades getting a proportionally larger amount of SHELL tokens to improve distribution of the governance token. Details of each grade of Clams are in the Airtable posted below;
  2. Each Clam will yield between approximately 0.6x to 300x of your GEM investment, with an average of 1.6x and 2 in 3 chance of being profitable (above 1x). The chances are slightly better with the lower grades compared to higher grades, to give smaller players an edge over whales;
  3. Clams purchased before the Bivalvia Update will not be affected after the update, and will have no Grade;
  4. The Clams available for purchase every week will be capped so that no more than 5% of the total GEM supply (or equivalent in BNB) can be used to purchase Clams in a given week;
  5. The Pearls available to be burned every week will be capped so that once max GEM yield from Pearl burning in a given week exceeds 2.5% of the total GEM supply, no more Pearls can be burned in that week; and
  6. Vested GEM can only be used for up to half of the price of purchasing a Clam.
  1. volatility in the affordability and pricing of Clams is, on the whole, a bad thing and should be avoided if possible; and
  2. Having Pearl production price fluctuate with a peg to 1/10 of the live dollar price of a Clam, but without any correlation to the GEM price paid for the Clam that produced it, is less than ideal for the ecosystem.
  1. Capping the Clams available for purchase so that no more than 5% of the total GEM supply (or equivalent in BNB) can be used to purchase Clams in a given week; and
  2. Capping the Pearls available to be burned so that once max GEM yield from Pearl burning in a given week exceeds 2.5% of the total supply, no more Pearls can be burned in that week.
