Cartel Town NFT Staking
3,110 Cartel Town NFTs can be staked to earn 24% of the total CAFE token supply. Holders that also own an El Café Cartel NFT receive 25% more CAFE rewards! This CAFE boost applies to pairings of El Café Cartel + Cartel Town NFTs.
CAFE Staking Rates
- Cartel Town NFT Base Staking Rate: 2,227 CAFE per year
- El Café Cartel NFT + Cartel Town NFT: 2,789 CAFE per year
Cartel Town Upgrades
Cartel Town NFTs are upgradable. With a little luck and CAFE, users can attempt to upgrade their low rarity Trap Houses into a rare Mansion Manor. The Mansion Manor NFTs can equip three NFT Boosts at a time for maximum CAFE staking rewards. Whereas common Trap House NFTs can only equip one NFT Boost at a time. There is a clear advantage to owning the rare Mansion Manor NFTs.
Users pay a CAFE fee for the chance to upgrade two Trap Houses into one Mansion Manor. If the upgrade is successful, the two Trap House NFTs are burned in exchange for one Mansion Manor NFT. If unsuccessful, the user keeps their two Trap House NFTs and can try again later. The probability of success decreases overtime which means it will become harder to upgrade to a Mansion Manor as time goes on.

Packages are the primary element of gamification in the Valle de la Muerte
Packages introduce the primary element of gamification into the Valle de la Muerte. Users can mint Packages for a set amount of CAFE (ex. Mint 1 Package for 50 CAFE). Minting a Package will yield four potential reward outcomes including varied CAFE allocations or NFT Boosts. The odds are designed to be net deflationary, so there is slightly less CAFE awarded than the cost to mint overall.
Packages Reward Outcomes
- Reward Outcome 1: Receive a low quantity of CAFE that is less than cost to mint Package
- Medium occurrence
- Reward Outcome 2: Receive a medium quantity of CAFE that is slightly higher than cost to mint Package.
- Medium occurrence
- Reward Outcome 3: Receive a large quantity of CAFE that returns a lot more than cost to mint Package.
- Rare occurrence
- Reward Outcome 4: Receive NFT Boost.
- Rare occurrence
Distribution of CAFE from Packages
The CAFE generated from minting packages is used to benefit the ecosystem in the same distributions as the Cartel Town NFT upgrade fees. A portion of CAFE is burned and the remaining CAFE goes to support the Marketplace and fund CAFE emissions for NFT Boosts.
- 20% CAFE automatically burned
- 30% CAFE allocated to Valle de la Muerte Marketplace
- 50% CAFE allocated to In-Game NFT Boosts
Valle de la Muerte Marketplace
The Valle de la Muerte Marketplace allows users to exchange NFT Boosts for CAFE at set rates any time. This establishes a floor price and liquid market for the NFT Boosts. The NFT Boosts are burned once exchanged to create a deflationary mechanism. NFT Boosts that are burned translate to future CAFE supply being burned. This is because every NFT Boost allocates a temporary CAFE staking boost.
A fixed amount of CAFE will be deposited into the Marketplace from the Treasury for initial funding. Additionally, 30% of the CAFE received from minting Packages will be deposited into the Marketplace Vault to fund the exchange of NFT Boosts. Eventually, it may be possible to exchange CAFE for NFT Boosts as well.
Attach NFT Boosts to Cartel Town NFTs for a temporary CAFE staking boost.
NFT Boosts are rewarded from minting Packages. The NFT Boosts can be attached to Cartel Town NFT houses for a temporary CAFE staking boost. The NFT Boosts are destroyed after the temporary boost period is complete. Users can also exchange NFT Boosts for CAFE token in the Valle de la Muerte Marketplace.
50% of the CAFE proceeds from minting Packages and Cartel Town Upgrade fees will be deposited into the NFT Boosts Vault to support the CAFE rewards attached to the NFT Boosts.
NFT Auctions - Rev Pool
All artwork within Valle de la Muerte is created by Funksteady; an artist renowned for his work on Solana and now NEAR. 1/1 artwork by Funksteady will be available for auction hosted by the Cartel. We will also welcome guest artists to auction their own cartel themed 1/1 pieces.
A portion of the NEAR generated from the 1/1 auction sales is deposited into the RevPool. Access to the RevPool is gated by ownership of a Wanted Poster NFT. Holders of Wanted Posters can stake their CAFE into the RevPool LP to earn the NEAR within the pool. The revenues will be distributed to CAFE stakers at a set rate.
(User Staked CAFE / Total Staked CAFE) * Auction Revenue = Revenue to User over X Days
100 total CAFE is staked in the RevPool by Wanted Posted NFT holders.
100 NEAR revenue from the auction is deposited in Rev Pool and will be allocated to the 100 CAFE staked.
- "User A" stakes 10 CAFE into the Rev Pool (10% of pool)
- "User A" receives 10 NEAR (10% of revenue) over X days
(10 CAFE / 100 CAFE) * 100 NEAR = 10 NEAR Revenue to “User A” over X days
