Evolution — is the 2nd phase of the Dust City collection.
This is a super convenient and cool Dust City NFTs upgrade tool.
Evolution impacts three components:
  1. 1.
    The official rarity of the upgraded NFT changes to Special.
Only NFTs with official rarity 1/1, Mythic, Legendary and Special (upgraded) will be able to move to 3rd phase of Dust City. It means that all Common, Uncommon, Rare and Epic NFTs without an upgrade will lose their utility and will cease to be part of the collection when phase 3 will be started.
  1. 2.
    Staking rewards will increase by two times. That's why it is more profitable to upgrade rarer NFTs. Rewards will not change immediately, it can take up to 48 hours.
  2. 3.
    Maximum of three NFT traits can be changed. Not all traits are available to change or can be selected for upgrade.
Upgrade costs:
To upgrade an NFT, it is required to:
$NCTR can be obtained for Dust City and Rektville staking, or bought on Raydium.
50% of the earned $NCTR is burned immediately, another 50% goes to the project's wallet.
How to upgrade an NFT?
  1. 1.
    Select an NFT for the upgrade.
  2. 2.

  3. 3.
    Optionally, select up to 3 traits to change.
  4. 4.
    Confirm actions and complete the process. You should hold 1.000 $NCTR in your wallet.
