Users will be able to buy in-game objects, NFTs, or pay in it in order to pass the game at an easier level. Developers expect to see large inflows of FLOKI into the game, which will be locked there and therefore "burned," i.e., taken out of the circulating supply.

The aforementioned NFTs in Valhalla are in-game characters called Vera.
