What is is a precursor A.I that creates a toy economy around hard and soft economic lures including:

The core is built to be self-decentralizing, and actions players take to benefit themselves also forcibly make the project grow in size, scale and reward for everyone participating.

Can I trust this project?

This project is developed by the same team that created Fomo3D, and handled hundreds of millions of dollars of cryptocurrency through their projects. You can expect that security is their top priority, as demonstrated with their solid track record on previous projects.

In addition, the project is powered by the TRON blockchain and has been setup to be entirely immutable and unchanging. The code deployed is law. There is no chance of any code/rules being changed, it's enshrined onto the chain. All game decisions are delegated to actions by the players.

There are no human administrators to this game, there is literally no one that has the ability to affect any core aspect of the project or its rules once deployed and running.

Meet C.U.R.V.Y

C.U.R.V.Y is a unique precursor to A.I. consisting of a self-decentralizing system, where all the actions players take to benefit themselves also forcibly make the project grow outward in size, scale and reward for everyone participating.

To get to know more about her, be sure to check out the Official Whitepaper.

The primary mode of communication with C.U.R.V.Y and this project sending in funds to her and getting giftboxes in return for her appreciation.

Okay, so how does this game work?

The rules of this game are simple and yet there are many ways to play and interact with C.U.R.V.Y. At the core of the project, you give TRX and in exchange you receive giftboxes. Quick summary of how this works:

  1. Purchase Giftboxes. Purchase giftboxes from C.U.R.V.Y, you will receive 1 giftbox for every 25 TRX that you send to the system.
  2. Accumulate Value in your Boxes. Without doing anything, you'll automatically start accumulating more and more TRX in all of your giftboxes every time other users buy more boxes or upgrade their boxes.
  3. Open or Upgrade your Boxes. At any time of your choosing, open up your boxes with a click of a button to receive 2x their value in TRX directly deposited to your wallet. Or upgrade your boxes to cash in that value for even more giftboxes!
  4. Tell the world. Share C.U.R.V.Y. with the world, and get a direct cut of every box purchased by anyone that uses your special link. Even better, with the branching system you'll get rewarded whenever anyone you tell then tells someone else!
  5. Have Fun! Have fun watching as your boxes accumulate in value until the round ends or until you open or upgrade your boxes again.
  6. Round Ends, a "reboot" occurs! When the timer reaches zero the round ends, and the last 100 players to have purchased a box receive a special reboot prize!. Also, all other giftboxes are then automatically opened and the value inside all of their giftboxes is made available for players to withdraw to their wallets.

That's all you really need to know about the basics of the game! However, check out the Game Mechanics page later for in-depth look at how everything fits together.

Why would I want to participate in this and purchase giftboxes?

Giftboxes are tokens of appreciation from C.U.R.V.Y that start with no value when initially purchased. And then only ever increase in their value from there as new boxes are purchased by yourself or other players. Boxes continue to exist, increasing in value, up until such point that they are opened (for 2x) or upgraded, or opened after the round ends (for 1x)

Giftboxes will never cost more than 25 TRX per box. So if you sent in 250 TRX, you can expect to receive 10 or more boxes at any point, with boxes becoming cheaper as the round progresses. Gift boxes start without value at their time of purchase, and then can only ever increase in value after that point unless upgraded or opened. Gift boxes increase in value every time any other gift box in the system is purchased or upgraded. That's right, every player upgrading their boxes increases the value of all other boxes. And every new purchase made by players increases the value of all other boxes, too.

Remember: Gift boxes only ever increase in value from every other player interaction, except for when you decide to upgrade or open your boxes. You are the only one in control of the tokens of appreciation she gives you.

The logic is very simple: A user will always want to open a gift box before the round has ended in order to get double the TRX value of their box. The paradox is when.

Okay, how do I get started purchasing giftboxes?

To participate in, you'll need to obtain TRX (TRON). To purchase your first TRX tokens, follow a few simple steps:

  1. Purchase BTC or ETH
  2. Purchase TRX on an Exchange
  3. Setup TronLink in Chrome
  4. Exchange TRX for Boxes

To learn more about TRON, you can visit our TRON Platform page here.

If you have TRX and just want to setup TronLink?, jump to Setup TronLink in Chrome

If you already have TRX in TronLink, jump to Exchange TRX for Boxes

1. Purchase BTC or ETH

Note: If you already have BTC or ETH that you can use to purchase TRX, then skip to the "Purchase TRX on an Exchange" below.

If you don't have any existing cryptocurrency, you need to first use an exchange to purchase BTC or Ethereum:

  1. Go to a trusted exchange such as Coinbase or Gemini, and signup for an account. (Coinbase vs Gemini?)
  2. Setup a funding source such as your bank account to use to purchase your cryptocurrency. (Don't worry both of these exchanges are very well-known and secure)
  3. Purchase Ethereum (ETH) by exchanging your local fiat (i.e USD) for Ethereum.
  4. Purchasing ETH may take a few days for the first purchase, so now you may need to wait or the transaction might be instant.

Once you have BTC or ETH to exchange for TRX, you are ready to purchase TRX from any supported TRX exchange (unfortunately neither Coinbase nor Gemini supports TRX).

2. Purchase TRX on an Exchange

Now let's use our BTC or ETH to acquire TRX. We recommend you purchase your TRX from a trusted exchange such as Bittrex.

Does this step look too difficult? You can also make this process even easier by converting your BTC/ETH using a conversion service like for a small fee. You would then need to follow the wizard to convert your ETH or BTC to TRX.

In order to buy Tron (TRX) on Bittrex, you would need to first register an account. After an account is made, click the wallets tab on the top of the navigation bar.

Click the green circle with the arrow to reveal your deposit address for either BTC or ETH (whichever you want to use to purchase TRX).

Your Bittrex Bitcoin deposit address will be displayed. Copy this address because we will need this to send Bitcoin to Bittrex.

Go to Gemini or Coinbase or wherever you have stored our ETH or BTC, and then look for a "withdraw" or "send" functionality. Go through the steps to send your BTC or ETH to Bittrex for trading. Paste the address we found in the earlier step and click confirm.

In a few minutes, usually between 20-30 minutes, your cryptocurrency will arrive to Bittrex for trading.

After having a balance of BTC or ETH on Bittrex, head to the corresponding pairing. This example will use the BTC/TRX trading pair. You should see something like this:

Look around and you’ll see the order box where you can then buy TRX using the BTC or ETH on the exchange by simply entering the amount of TRX you want to buy and clicking the green “Buy” button. Once your order has filled, you have successfully purchased Tron!

Does this step look too difficult? You can also make this process even easier by converting your BTC/ETH using a conversion service like for a small fee. You would then need to follow the wizard to convert your ETH or BTC to TRX.

Once the TRX has been successfully purchased on the Bittrex exchange, you'll want to install TRONLink to store your TRX safely and make interacting with the project easier:

  1. Visit, the official website for TronLink. Or download directly from the Chrome store
  2. TronLink supports Chrome through an extension. Download and install this extension.
  3. Once installed into Chrome, you'll want to click the TronLink icon () to get started
  4. Enter a secure password and confirm the password, and click "Continue"
  5. Select "Create Account" to create a brand new account
  6. Now give your new account a name
  7. And absolutely make sure to save your 12 seed words in a safe place! You need these to recover your account. Without them, your account could be completely lost.
  8. Enter your seed words back into the extension to confirm that you remember them and have them stored!

With that we should be in! You should now see this:

Next, we need to send the TRX from Bittrex over to our TRONLink Wallet:

  1. Copy your TronLink wallet address to your clipboard
  2. Go back to Bittrex account and click "Wallets" in the upper right of the page.
  3. Search for the "TRX" wallet using the Search box in the upper right
  4. Click the red circle/arrow next to TRX. This will bring up the Withdraw screen.
  5. Enter the TronLink wallet address and the amount that you want to Withdraw.
  6. Click Withdraw to confirm.
  7. If you have two-factor enabled, you will need to enter your 6 digit code and press Confirm.

Once you see the TRX stored in your TRONLink wallet (this should happen pretty quickly), you can then move onto the next section below to purchase your first giftboxes!

4. Exchange TRX for Giftboxes

Now that we have our TRX, you can visit the page and send funds in to acquire giftboxes on the right-hand side using the slider to determine the amount:

You purchase gift boxes by entering an amount of TRX into the textbox and hitting the submit button. Once you've hit purchase, a purchase checkout screen shows up:

Next, a TRONLink confirmation dialog will come up as shown below:

Review the dialog, verify the TRX amount looks correct and then hit "Accept". You should see a confirmation that the purchase is complete:

Now check the project UI to see when you have successfully received the gift boxes:

And you are all set with your first boxes!

Additional Project Functionality

After you've purchased your initial giftboxes, you can take any of the following additional actions any time:

  1. Spread the word about her. - Sign up with a promotion name, and get to sharing more about curvy far and wide online. You get instantly rewarded for all revenue you bring into the game, both directly or indirectly!
  2. Purchase more giftboxes - Purchase giftboxes at a fixed price of 25 TRX per giftbox. Every giftbox accumulates in value from every additional giftbox generated in the game, from the moment that it is created. Remember, giftboxes only ever increase in value.
  3. Open giftboxes - Choose to open your current giftboxes, in which case you receive 2x the current box value, sent from the game, directly to your wallet. After this point, the giftbox is destroyed.
  4. Reinvest current giftboxes - Choose to reinvest your current giftboxes for double the giftboxes' current value as newly purchased boxes. Reinvesting does not destroy your current box count.
  5. Toggle automatic giftbox upgrades - Choose to toggle automatic upgrades on giftboxes, from which point, anytime a new giftbox can be purchased based on the value of existing giftboxes, the value inside is used to purchase additional giftboxes but without destroying your current box count.

While these actions are what you can do at any time, a major challenge is knowing which strategy to use at what time, and how to interact with the system in a way that most benefits you as the player. There are many, many ways to play.
