n the simplest terms, $LAVA is the play-to-earn token generated from gameplay across the Vulcan Forged ecosystem. You play our games, you earn $LAVA.. though there is a little more depth to it than that.
The life-blood of the ecosystem, the little brother of $PYR, $LAVA can be used to buy materials, upgrade Vulcanites, Gods and land (when combined with XP), and traded for $PYR or $USDC using the VulcanDex.
$LAVA can be earned through means other than playing games. Referring new users (subject to them earning enough XP) and holding $PYR in your My Forge account will generate $LAVA.
$LAVA Token Contract:
All earned $LAVA can be tracked in My Forge and starts as Cold $LAVA. It will stay as Cold $LAVA until a user has earned 10,000 XP and then, over the course of 3 days it heats up, where it becomes Hot $LAVA.
Once your $LAVA is Hot, you are able to claim it and do with it what you want.
