Vulcan Forged is a game studio, non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace and decentralised application (dApps) incubator built on Ethereum, Polygon and Binance Smart Chain (BSC). The company, which boasts over 2,000 members, describes itself as a community-based project promoting the development of world-class blockchain games from incubation to crowdfunding.
The PYR token rallied to $49.73 on 26 November, a 84% increase from three days earlier when it was trading at $26.99 on 23 November. Shortly thereafter, the coin soared to an all-time high of $49.74 on 1 December.
What is a Vulcan Forged (PYR) coin? Let’s look at the project and the latest predictions for the price in 2022 and beyond.
Vulcan Forged offering: A virtually gas-free marketplace
Vulcan Forged started as a small digital art NFT platform in December 2020 but has since grown into a multi-dApp platform, game studio and launchpad for those who wish to propose an NFT game or dApp idea in exchange for grants, technical and marketing support.
As such, Vulcan Forged does not require users to pay gas fees for PYR transactions or for trading, buying and selling NFTs.
In fact, the company’s blockchain Elysium, which has been designed specifically for crypto gaming projects that mostly use NFTs, aims to become the world’s first fully carbon-neutral blockchain by planting trees on nearly 70,000 acres of land in an effort to neutralise carbon emissions from servers that consume energy to validate transactions.
The company also offers a blockchain-powered virtual world known as VulcanVerse which is set in the Greco-Roman era and features one-of-a-kind NFT-based creatures called Vulcanites. The virtual world is 3km x 3km and divided into four quadrants with a city centre called Vulcan City. In VulcanVerse, players can create their own community-led quests and adventures, forage for NFTs and battle with other Vulcanites.
What is a Vulcan Forged coin?
PYR is the native cryptographically secure token of the Vulcan Forged platform which has been designed to be used solely as an interoperable utility coin across different game environments. The primary use of PYR is as a form of currency within the marketplace but it is also a versatile coin in that it powers the entire Vulcan Forged dApp ecosystem and can be used as a cross-platform settlement, staking and gaming utility token.
PYR can be used in any or all of the following ways:
- trading, buying or selling NFTs
- staking PYR in order to upgrade their in-game land NFTs
- contributing to liquidity pools on VulcanDEX in order to earn liquidity rewards and a share of the DEX transaction fees
For every PYR transaction, 10% will be sent to the reward pools for distribution to the ecosystem’s contributors.
The Vulcan Foundation will fund two PYR reward pools with an initial 10m tokens released over a twenty-four month period. As it pertains to both the LAVA and Staking pools:
- 10% of every fee from all Vulcan Forged marketplace transactions will go into both pools
- 10% of every fee taken from direct asset sales will go into both pools
- 50% of every upgrade fee for land, Titan or Olympian NFTs will go into both pools
- 10% of every prize pool and tournament setup fee on the company’s decentralised gaming platform, Frenzy will go into both pools
Vulcan Forged token price analysis: Technical view and latest news
The PYR coin started its journey in April 2021, and achieved an all-time high of $49.74 on 1 December 2021.
In the month before its all-time high, PYR’s price saw a strong rally, climbing from a low of $16.89 on 12 November to $29.88 just twelve days later on 23 November, and then to $43.28 on 29 November.
However, the price retreated to $27.51 on 4 December, dropping to as low as $20.98 on 6 December. This is somewhat of a sharp drop considering that the coin had hit its all-time high just 6 days earlier.
The PYR price then consolidated, trading within the $25 to $31 range until 14 December when it dropped to $18.29 – a day after it was revealed that over 4.5m PYR, amounting to $140m, was stolen by an unknown hacker.
The PYR price plummeted even further to $16.11 on 19 December despite a Crypto.com app listing just three days earlier.
As of 28 December, it was trading at around $17.99 and ranked 255 in the list of cryptocurrencies by market capitalisation at $356m, according to CoinMarketCap.
Vulcan Forged price drivers: Now operating on the Binance Smart Chain
In October this year, Vulcan Forged launched the first-ever decentralised exchange (DEX) purpose-built for gaming tokens. VulcanDEX allows users to trade any gaming token without the need to register. Users are also able to stake gaming tokens in order to facilitate exchanges on VulcanDEX and earn rewards in proportion to their share of specific liquidity pools.
As a boost for the project, VulcanDEX passed an audit with Certik in September this year.
Last month, the company expanded to the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) as an additional network to be used for its marketplace NFT settlement fees and in-game transactions. While the PYR token already exists on both Ethereum and Polygon, enabling it on BSC opens the doors to a wider community.
It is worth noting the company has been adversely affected by the previously mentioned 13 December cyber-attack when an unknown hacker got a hold of the private keys of 148 wallets. In response, the company announced that it is planning to remove its semi-custodial solution from the entire vulcan forged ecosystem.

Anndy Lian, chairman of BigONE Exchange and chief digital advisor for Mongolia’s national productivity agenda, told Capital.com:
When looking for Vulcan Forged coin forecasts, bear in mind that analysts and algorithm-based predictions can be wrong. Their PYR projections are based on fundamental and technical studies of a cryptocurrency’s past performance. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
It’s essential to do your research and always remember your decision to trade depends on your attitude to risk, your expertise in the market, the spread of your investment portfolio and how comfortable you feel about losing money. You should never invest money that you cannot afford to lose.
