Future Future Labs Limited (“Future Future Labs” or “FFL”) is a limited liability company located in the British Virgin Islands. We are a web3 focused token company composed of crypto, legal, and marketing experts. Our mission is to collaborate with well-established projects within the blockchain and Non-Fungible Token (“NFT”) space.
We are believers in the future of gaming, Play-and-Earn (“P&E”), and community-driven projects. As such, the ZED Token will be first integrated into ZED RUN.
ZED RUN: Emerging Culture through Future Entertainment
By democratizing racehorse ownership, ZED RUN and its community have caught the attention of horse racing fans, sports fans, gamers, and web3 adopters.
ZED RUN is a popular P&E digital horse racing game, in which owners of digital racehorse NFTs can engage in skill-based gameplay. ZED RUN has taken inspiration from the real world of horse racing and has fused it with web3 technologies, and as a result has brought the “sport of kings” into the metaverse.
Within three (3) years of launching, ZED RUN has demonstrated product-market fit by:
- Securing USD $140M+ in primary and secondary market trades across 225,000+ transactions
- Supporting 50,000+ unique racehorse owners
- Over 200,000 community bred racehorses
- Celebrating 2,000,000+ races and counting
- Generating more than USD $40M in community-earned racing rewards over 6M transactions
NFTs & Play-and-Earn: A New Revolution
The intersection between NFTs and P&E is fast becoming one of the biggest digital transformations ever seen in video gaming history.
Blockchain technology has ushered in many innovations that are fundamentally beginning to re-shape the way individuals bank, transact, socialize and game with one another.
Video games have long had their own centralized virtual currencies. However, we have seen that blockchain-powered video games are changing this dynamic. Not only are web3 in-game items (i.e. power-ups or collectibles) tradable as NFTs on an open market, video game virtual currencies are now often created as blockchain tokens.
We believe that P&E opportunities are enhanced by providing more utility than ever before by allowing players to use their rewards across a much wider network of assets, games, and entertainment experiences.
ZED RUN is one of the first utility-based NFT projects that we believe has proven success and longevity. This is an opportune time to introduce a token to the ZED RUN ecosystem.
Introducing ZED Token
The ZED Token is a fungible cryptographic token that exists on the Ethereum and Polygon blockchains. The ZED Token will, over time, become the main utility token and in-game currency of ZED RUN and is intended to be leveraged across P&E utility-based video games.
Future Future Labs has collaborated with ZED RUN to develop, integrate, and distribute the ZED Token. The goals of integrating the ZED Token into ZED RUN’s ecosystem are:
- Providing access to a wider range of game functionality
- Creating a convenient and secure mode of payment in the ZED RUN platform
- Allowing for settlement between participants who interact on ZED Token powered ecosystems
- Providing the economic incentives which will be distributed to encourage users to exert efforts towards contribution and participation in the ecosystem on ZED RUN (in particular rewards to be distributed to players under the P&E mechanism), thereby creating a mutually beneficial system where every participant is fairly compensated for its efforts. Given that additional ZED Tokens will be awarded to a user based only on its actual usage, activity and efforts made on ZED RUN and/or proportionate to the frequency and volume of transactions, users of ZED RUN and/or holders of ZED Token which did not actively participate will not receive any ZED Token incentives.
ZED Token is not, and not intended to be, a medium of exchange accepted by the public (or a section of the public) as payment for goods or services or for the discharge of a debt; nor is it designed or intended to be used by any person as payment for any goods or services whatsoever that are not exclusively provided by the issuer. ZED Token does not in any way represent any shareholding, participation, right, title, or interest in the Company, the Distributor, their respective affiliates, or any other company, enterprise or undertaking, nor will ZED Token entitle token holders to any promise of fees, dividends, revenue, profits or investment returns, and are not intended to constitute securities in the British Virgin Islands, Singapore or any relevant jurisdiction.
ZED Token may only be utilized on ZED RUN, and ownership of the same carries no rights, express or implied, other than the right to use ZED Token as a means to enable usage of and interaction within ZED RUN. The secondary market pricing of ZED Token is not dependent on the effort of the ZED RUN team, and there is no token functionality or scheme designed to control or manipulate such secondary pricing.
Future Future Lab’s primary role is to serve as the developer of the ZED Token network. We are not the governing body, but rather serve as the base layer which players may utilize and further build upon. We will also facilitate, maintain, develop and administer the day-to-day operations of the ecosystem.
Through ZED RUN, we are committed to the mission of a sustainable decentralized ZED Token ecosystem. We do recognize that there are still many features at the protocol level that need to be developed and implemented and are committed to implementing them in due course.
We want the ZED Token to focus on utility and ecosystem sustainability.
It is important to reiterate that ZED RUN simply comprises a set of autonomous smart contracts deployed on the relevant blockchain network, operated directly by users calling functions on it (which allows them to interact with other users and/or pool their own selected assets in a multi-party peer-to-peer manner). There is no further control by or interaction with the original entity which had deployed the smart contract, which entity solely functions as a provider of technical tools for users, and is not offering any gambling, securities product, or regulated service nor does it hold any user assets in custody.
Our current focus is to maximize token distribution across as many members of the community and introduce more community-created functionality. We also intend to deliver more robust governance and voting frameworks to help support initiatives such as:
- Implementing ZED Tokens into new protocols;
- Improvements to voting and proposals framework(s); and
- Distribution of the Ecosystem Fund for active ecosystem participants.
We know that token protocols are primarily built around community, its participation and influence.
We intend to usher in the next phase of community-led growth for the ZED Token by building a scalable entertainment protocol that delivers influence to gamers, creators, and fans.
The right to vote is restricted solely to voting on certain features of ZED RUN; it does not entitle ZED Token holders to vote on the operation and management of the Company, its affiliates, or their assets or the disposition of such assets to token holders, or select the board of directors or similar bodies of these entities, or determine the development direction of these entities, nor does ZED Token constitute any equity interest in any of these entities or any collective investment scheme; the arrangement is not intended to be any form of joint venture or partnership.
The ZED Token is a utility native ERC-20 token deployed on both Ethereum and Polygon.
The ZED Token allocations, once fully released or released after an initial lock-up period and will be managed by a multi-signature wallet address. Please refer to token allocations for a breakdown.
We have allocated a portion of ZED Tokens for ecosystem development (i.e. Ecosystem Fund). Our goal is to help bootstrap the network effects of the ZED Token, because we want to ensure diversity and accessibility to the community over the long term.
The Ecosystem Fund is designed to reward the efforts of ZED RUN’s community members who are contributing to building sustainable value.
The Ecosystem Fund will initially be accessible to ZED RUN and ZED Token supporters, which can include participants, content creators, and entrepreneurial developers. These groups can propose new projects and ideas that focus on the sustained growth of the ZED RUN and ZED Token ecosystems.
Future Future Labs intends to build the governance and voting framework around successful and unsuccessful project proposals in tandem with the community.
Smart Contract Security Audit
The ZED Token smart contracts have been successfully audited by Quantstamp – leaders in web3 security. To date, Quantstamp has protected over $200B in digital asset risk from hackers and has secured some of the most valuable projects in the NFT Space (Beeple B.20, NBA Top Shot, Axie Infinity, and SuperRare).
For more information on Quantstamp and their auditing process, please visit their website.
The token smart contract address can be viewed here.
The ZED Token will endeavor to support the growth of the ZED RUN ecosystem and encourage new users to join its community.
With our community-first approach, the ZED Token ensures existing ZED RUN community members and stable owners are airdropped ZED Tokens based on ownership and activity.
There will be one billion (1,000,000,000) ZED Tokens in total, provisionally allocated into the following groups:
% of Supply
– Private Backers
– Existing Backers
ZED RUN Existing Users
Play-and-Earn Rewards Treasury
ZED Token Liquidity

Backers, Advisors, and Team Schedule
The team, advisors, and backers behind the ZED Token believe in providing long-term value. The step-chart below shows the release conditions and token unlock schedule for non-community related tokens to reward these strategic partners.
All ZED Tokens will be allocated to the core groups listed below:
ZED RUN Existing Users
The ZED Token is made available to eligible ZED RUN users who have shown consistent engagement across racehorse purchases as well as racing, breeding, passes and skin ownership. For a detailed breakdown of the distribution of ZED Tokens to existing ZED RUN users, please refer to the Airdrop Eligibility.
ZED Token Treasury
The ZED Token Treasury will be used to help maintain, develop and administer the day-to-day operations of the ZED Token ecosystem. This allocation will also be used to help support and moderate the Proposal Process.
Play-and-Earn Rewards Treasury
The primary purpose of Play-and-Earn rewards is to broaden the usage and application of the ZED Token and incentivize new and existing users to participate in the ecosystem. Initially, Play-and-Earn rewards will be available in ZED RUN through its lending gameplay mode. Our ZED Token development team will explore further token-based incentives alongside the ZED RUN community to improve the ecosystem and reward active users.
An Ecosystem Fund has been set aside for ecosystem development to help bootstrap the network effects of both ZED RUN and indirectly, the ZED Token. This is to ensure a diverse and accessible community over the long term.
We have designed the Ecosystem Fund to reward the efforts of the community that builds sustainable value within the ZED RUN and ZED Token ecosystems. ZED Tokens will be awarded to successful proposals as voted on by ZED Token holders through a Proposal Process.
We will announce all grants from this allocation in a transparent manner to the community.
ZED Token Liquidity
A successful community-led ecosystem can only occur when governance is distributed to as many token holders as possible. To aid community growth and further market-making opportunities, we will reserve tokens to initiate liquidity for both centralized and decentralized venues. Token liquidity will also be used for strategic partners prior to launch to allow for a broader range of distribution.
Team and Backers
Team and backers include the individuals and businesses that have helped bring the ZED Token to life. All team members and backers are subject to a strict and lengthy release schedule, to ensure objectives are aligned.
A total of 7% of the ZED Token supply will be allocated through an airdrop to existing ZED RUN users in recognition for their early support. All eligible users will have the opportunity to claim their airdropped ZED Tokens from our smart contract.
To lower the barrier to entry for this airdrop and as the token issuer, Future Future Labs will pay all gas fees associated with the claiming of ZED Tokens.
The claiming period will be strictly open for ninety (90) days from the airdrop. Any unclaimed ZED Tokens after the 90 day claiming window will be transferred back to the Play-and-Earn Rewards Treasury.
1 June 2022
Block Height (Polygon)
Total Airdrop Supply
Percentage of Total Supply
Included in the data collected is both legacy and migrated racehorses.
Snapshot data includes Ethereum and Polygon transactions, along with in-game activity (off-chain and on-chain).
Cumulatively, the 70,000,000 ZED Tokens available to existing users can be claimed by over 100,000 stable owners.
Any unclaimed tokens will be sent to the ZED Token Play-and-Earn Rewards Treasury after the initial 90 day claiming period.
Future Future Labs will cover all the 'gas' costs (i.e. fees) for every stable owner when claiming their ZED Tokens. We want to ensure that both MetaMask and Magic Wallet users can successfully participate in the airdrop.
The airdrop eligibility was generated from all ownership, racing, and breeding data merged across both Layer 1 (Ethereum) and Layer 2 (Polygon) blockchains up until the snapshot date of June 1, 2022 UTC.
The airdrop eligibility data will be weighted as follows:
Length of racehorse ownership
Number of paid races completed
Number of free races completed
Number of racehorses bred with your mare(s)
Number of studs entered into Stud Farm
NASCAR Pass Holders at Snapshot Date
Skin Owners at Snapshot Date
From the details above, it can be observed that ~38% of the airdrop allocation was weighted towards ownership data and ~61% was weighted to activity data.
When beginning to decide how the airdrop will be distributed, the main criteria was to reward every user that has contributed to the ZED RUN platform. Rather than just reward NFT holders, a broad approach was taken to reward all platform participants as well as those that contributed most to ZED RUN.
Therefore, an airdrop score was derived across all included users and stable owners, related to multiple forms of participation and engagement, with two primary themes:
- Ownership*: Stables that held ZED RUN NFTs
- Activity: Stables that performed high value actions in-game
*Only users that owned a racehorse, at a given point in time, up until the snapshot date were included in the ownership and activity score allocation.
Ownership relates to racehorse ownership (i.e. duration it was held for) and factors in the rarity of the racehorse(s). The rarity of any given racehorse further accounts for the relative rarity of GenoType, Breed Type, and Bloodline. For example, rarity by Genotype is based on the graph below:
Therefore, ownership accounts for both, the amount of days a racehorse was held for and its corresponding rarity.
The allocation of ZED Tokens to Skin and Pass holders is further described here.
If you held a racehorse for any amount of time but not at the snapshot date (i.e. even if you had traded it), you are eligible to claim the ZED Token.
Activity relates to participation and engagement on the ZED RUN platform and factored, the following weighted data points up until the snapshot date.
- Number of paid races completed
- Number of free races completed
- Number of racehorses bred with your mare(s)
- Number of studs entered into Stud Farm
- NASCAR Pass Holders at snapshot date
- Skin owners at snapshot date
Please note, that we will not be breaking down each address’s individual score formula. Users will only see the total amount.
The total score after weighting each in-game activity and ownership factor was then summed to determine the total scores for both ownership and activity metrics.
Subsequently, the scores per wallet addresses (i.e. users and stable owners) were then ranked and broken up into five scoring tiers, in order to create a local minimum and maximum. Put simply, those that engaged the most on ZED RUN, were rewarded the most.
Each tier was then weighted locally to provide a fair curve relative to a given wallet address’s placement in that tier.
A token allocation was then mapped and distributed to each tier. See breakdown below:
% of Users
We decided to go this route to reward the top players for their contributions, but did not skew the total allocation towards a very small threshold of players. Diminishing returns had an effect, but only relative to the localized pool.
Every user and stable owner that has ever owned a racehorse for any length of time, is allocated an equal Activation Bonus.
Skin and Pass Bonuses
Static bonuses were also applied to wallet addresses that held ZED RUN skins or ZED RUN NASCAR Passes up until the snapshot date.
All wallet addresses that owned a NASCAR Pass(es) at the snapshot date will receive a static bonus of 350 ZED Tokens per NASCAR Pass in addition to their existing airdrop allocation.
In addition, all wallet addresses that owned an eligible skin(s) at the snapshot date will receive a static bonus in addition to their existing airdrop score as per the table below:
ZED RUN – One Millionth Race
All addresses that owned one or more skin or NASCAR Pass as of the snapshot date will receive a static bonus to their existing airdrop score, relative to the number of skins and/or passes held.
A small amount (1%) of the total airdrop allocation only will be held aside for any issues that may arise during the claiming window. Distribution of this allocation will be at the discretion of the ZED Token support team. Any unused amounts after the claiming window (90 days) will be sent back to the Play-and-Earn Rewards Treasury.
Additional Airdrop Details
We recognize that it may be possible to create a simple model to approximate an individual’s allocation, but our team does not recommend it because manual scaling factors (such as a diminishing returns curve) were also applied to further adjust scoring factors.
We will release further details regarding the claim process and additional airdrop details closer to the date on the ZED Token Twitter page.
