Penguin Karts is an immersive 3D battle-racing game built on the blockchain. Essentially, it takes the arcade-style kart racing you know and love and seamlessly introduces NFT dynamics alongside a Play-to-Earn system.
A lot has happened since the idea of Penguin Karts was first conceived. Who would have thought that a nostalgic memory would spawn the development of a blockchain project, let alone one that has been gaining steam like this.
Today, we wanted to highlight what we believe makes Penguin Karts special and (if you’ll excuse the pun) how it drives forward the blockchain gaming scene.
Penguin Karts is an immersive 3D battle-racing game built on the blockchain for those who don’t know.
Essentially, it takes the arcade-style kart racing you know and love and seamlessly introduces NFT dynamics alongside a Play-to-Earn system.
As the player, here’s what that means for you: you race against up to eight opponents across a selection of tracks while earning prizes and NFTs, which can be used in-game (skins for your character and kart, for example) or sold for profit.
There are also leaderboards to contend with, tournaments to participate in, and even a wager system to try out where you can predict the outcome of races.
Start small or go all in – the wager system offers a high risk, high reward sort-of scenario, if that’s what you are after.
That’s great and all, but one element that we wanted to highlight is how it makes the crypto market more accessible for newcomers.
Blockchain games, in general, are a great way to dip your toes in the crypto scene. Still, the fun, addictive, and universally accessible gameplay of kart racing takes it to another level.
This is where another important aspect comes into play – it balances the game to make it suitable for everyone. We follow the mantra of ‘easy to play, hard to master.’
Everyone should be able to play without issues thanks to intuitive controls and the like, but skilled players will be incentivized to master the art of kart racing. That’s why the biggest prizes are given out in tournaments for the top three places.
As you can see, there’s a lot to do in Penguin Karts. Now, let’s turn our attention to the blockchain elements.
$PGK has an initial supply of 2,941,200 $PGK (1,47%) and is hard-capped at 200 million $PGK. This means the initial market cap with a token price of 0.04$ is 117,648$.
The entire 200 million tokens will be pre-minted and locked with various vesting schedules, slowly releasing more of the pre-minted supply into circulation. No additional tokens will be created. This means $PGK is not subject to inflation. We recommend you check out our whitepaper for the full details.
In addition to captivating gameplay, the platform adopts a player-friendly tokenomics approach.
For example, a healthy 48.53% of the total token supply is set aside for the Play-to-Earn rewards and staking rewards. This makes sure the players can earn play-to-earn rewards as soon as the game’s first version is live.
Most importantly, we built tokenomics to nurture a sustainable economy from the ground up. The allocated token supply to our ecosystem will be plenty to sustain the project by itself for two years.
However, to ensure that it can keep paying its players and stakers the rewards, it has various ways to make certain tokens return to the treasury. Some of these methods are:
A marketplace taxA wager taxSpecial tournament ticketsThe ability to host tournaments by yourself public as well as privateA tax on the total prize pool of self-hosted tournaments
The marketplace offers a space for players to buy and sell their NFT assets.
The medium of exchange is naturally the native token of the project: the Penguin Karts token ($PGK), which automatically increases demand for the token as it adds a use case.
It’s incredibly important, especially in crypto, for successful breakthrough crypto projects to be backed by a strong team. Penguin Karts is made up of experienced professionals who are passionate about gaming.
CEO Tommy Dahlberg, COO Rhiannon “Ri Ri” Fletcher, Business Development Manager Mert , and CMO Baz Furby bring their own strengths to the project, bringing to life the original vision and building a fantastic community around the project.
That’s not to mention the significant contribution of the development team and the many partners who are contributing to the game in some way or another.
To top it all off, Penguin Karts has been in hot demand as it builds out its ecosystem of partners ranging from VCs, including Black Edge Capital, Fairum Ventures & Cryptology.

With all that said, the game is currently in development, with the first playable demo scheduled for Spring 2022. But don’t worry – there’s still a lot going on and plenty to get involved with, even now.
It recently completed two rounds of 2D NFT minting. These were the Genesis collection of 10K Penguin Profile Pictures, each with unique traits that ensure no two are alike.
They can not only be used on your profile and across your social media channels but also will be able to be staked for earning potential and provide holders beta access to the game ahead of launch.
This was a free giveaway, with only the gas fees to be covered by the participants. It was ultimately a success – but this is just the beginning. Several more NFTs are planned for release shortly.
Namely, these are the 3D NFTs. These come in the forms of kart skins, characters and items so you can customize your racing experience. Allowing your Penguin to express themselves in the Penguin Karts Metaverse.
All the beta testers that connected their web3 wallet will be eligible to start collecting $PGK rewards right from the start, with rewards built into the game as racers complete more and more races.
Rewards in $PGK will be precious to early beta users as they can then be staked on the Penguin Karts site and traded on the market DEX platform.
Given that its community is so vital to the project’s success, it will be providing early closed Beta access to anyone who holds one of its NFTs or is a member of the Discord community before launch. So we invite members of the crypto community to join Telegram or Discord for updates on early Beta access.
