  • Staking DGOLD for passive income
  • Buying props using DGOLD
  • Renting advertising space in Degen Islands Central


$DGOLD is a governance token that allows holders to participate in Governance decisions of the platform, using a DAO structure. They can exercise voting rights on key elements such as Treasury grant attributions to content and game creators and feature prioritisation on the platform Roadmap. $DGOLD owners can vote themselves or delegate voting rights to other players of their choice.


$DGOLD allows for staking, which allows for passive revenues on ISLANDS: you get more $DGOLD by staking it.

Fee Capture model

5% of all transaction volume carried out in $DGOLD tokens (Transaction Fees) shall be allocated with 50% to the Staking Pool as rewards for token holders that Stake $DGOLD tokens and 50% to the ''Treasury''


The role of the Treasury is to support the ecosystem of The Degen Islands
$DGOLD holders may not be interested in governance of the game and may just want the value of their token to appreciate. and play the game. In this case, stakers can allocate their vote to other holders who wish to participate in governance. To avoid a concentration of power within the ecosystem, the number of votes each holder can cast will be limited.

$DGOLD Governance Token Stakeholders

Revenues generated through the Degen Islands will be distributed across 4 stakeholders to provide support to the ecosystems of creators and players as well as to provide the resources needed to grow the market and develop high quality gaming experience.
These 4 stakeholders are:

Treasury Pool

Designed to ensure that revenue generated through the game accrues value to the token. The token allocation of this Treasury pool will be progressively decentralised as we implement a DAO/Community driven solution towards a decentralised model for the benefit of the token ecosystem.

Staking Pool

Designed to provide a yield and value to token holders. Its governance will migrate from a centralised decision in year 1 towards a DAO mechanism in the coming years. ISLAND NFT holders that are also active players will generate an extra yield rewarding their activity.

Company Treasury

This represents the $DGOLD that is owned by the company that comes from the proceeds of sales of company owned assets with a 12 months lock-up. The $DGOLD generated through treasury will be sold back to the market to pay operational expenses.

Company Reserve

This is the initial company reserve and will be fed with the proceeds of sales of company owned assets with a 6 month lock-up.
