We are proud to officially announce Battle of The Blockchains (BotB)™, a project of Relaychain.com. BotB will be one of the world’s first cross-chain NFT games where champions from each chain will battle for $$$$ prizes, bragging rights, and more! There will be 10,000 unique NFT Champions per Blockchain coming from some of the most popular and trusted DeFi protocols on-chain.
BotB is a scalable NFT gaming solution that utilizes the tech already developed by Relaychain to bring a unique win-win-win-win value proposition to the minter, partner, host chain, and Relaychain (check out the Treasury Backed NFT section below for more details). Over the next few weeks, we will be announcing our key partners one by one, hosting AMAs to talk about the project, and introducing all of the key value propositions of our mintenomics and game development roadmap. Follow BotB today at www.relaychain.com/botb
We’d like to highlight two important takeaways before diving in any further.
- Relay community members initiated the concept of BotB, which is an industry first in the space.
- BotB will continue to be a community-driven project with the core Relay team providing crucial industry expertise. This balance will allow the core team to remain focused on Relay’s core Bridging as a Service (BaaS) product in tandem with BotB development.

First Chain & NFT Specifics
Given our long history with the Avalanche blockchain, we chose them as the best place to host our inaugural mint!
Wherever we expand BotB, there will be four key partners. Each partner will have 2000 NFT Champions generated based on their mascot and will be reinforced by Relay’s own Relayer Champion to comprise a total of 10,000 NFT Champions. We have spent time designing in a unique way where we are able to spread the traits across 5 mascots in 1 mint. Meaning you have a 1 in 5 or 20% chance to mint anyone of the Champions.
By keeping this ratio the same, we can scale BotB to any number of chains while maintaining the quality of our NFT artwork. Each NFT Champion is hand-drawn by our talented artists and will have an assigned rarity & ranking that plays a role in the upcoming Battle of the Blockchains game.
Treasury Backed NFT
The first win-win-win-win value proposition for the minter, partner, host chain and Relaychain is through Treasury Backed NFTs. When the mint is complete, we will take a portion of the mint proceeds to purchase Relay and our key partner tokens giving real value to each NFT you hold in BotB. In doing this, we strengthen our partner’s valuation, increase host chain TVL, while strengthening the Relay treasury. We will go into more detail when we announce the Mintenomics in the coming weeks. Stay Tuned!
The answer is simple, the community has been requesting NFTs to be a part of Relaychain for a long time, and the team was waiting for the right opportunity to present itself. We were willing to wait to create a unique NFT project that isn’t just another cash grab. By empowering our artists within the Relaychain community, we will build strong and trusting relationships with whichever chain we connect our bridge to.
All of the BotB NFTs will have a purpose in the upcoming game, and a higher rarity level will have an impact. While the BotB team has an incredible amount of experience in the gaming industry, we understand the nuance behind building an NFT game that is fun & sustainable. Because of that, we plan to use a portion of the mint to bring in a professional game development studio to assist in creating the first bridge based on-chain game.
About the BotB Team
Who are we & What do we believe in?
The team behind this project started as community members. All of us are old-school passionate gamers, who are a bit tired of the greed and pay to win mechanics that have clouded the industry. We’ve seen the rise and fall of many studios and worked within the ranks of some of the greatest. Given all this, what we want to create is:
- A game that harbors a regenerative community
- A game that is competitive & fun to play
- A game that has balanced and fair game mechanic – no pay to win
- A game that is easily accessible
- A game where you can play to earn
- A game that is collaborative
- A game that gives back

RelayChain enables fast, secure, and low-cost cross-chain token transfers between the world’s leading blockchains. The platform offers Bridging as a Service (BaaS) to partner networks and dApps wishing to expand their footprint beyond a single chain. RelayChain currently supports bridges between any combination of Cronos, Harmony, Moonriver, IoTeX, Ethereum, Polygon, Binance Smart Chain, Fantom, Avalanche, Shiden, and HECO. Multiple popular networks will be added in the near future. A unique feature of RelayChain is that once a token exists on our platform, it can be bridged to any other EVM in our list of networks. This can be done in one step without the need to return to the parent chain first. This represents a major feature of speed and convenience for all of the users. The RELAY token holds high utility as it will be used to reward stakers with a share of the native gas tokens collected from bridging fees. It’s a deflationary token; the more transactions that occur, the more RELAY is bought back and burned. RelayChain can quickly enable any project’s tokens to be bridged at no cost to the project.
