We are glad you are here. 

Maybe you have always wanted to own a horse.
Maybe you love the thrill of competition.
Maybe you’re an expert handicapper.
Maybe you love the intricacies of creating a dynasty.

But that’s not this article. Today, you are here to learn how to earn $CROWN.


We’ve written at length about $CROWN before. But now it’s here. It may sound complex or confusing, but at the top level, it’s simple:

  1. Lock up an NFT from this collection to earn $CROWN
  2. Lock up $CROWN to get ownership in race tracks

Learn More:

  • The $CROWN token is an SPL Token that lives on the Solana blockchain.
  • 15,008 Solana NFT’s exist in the official Photo Finish™ PFP Collection.
  • Every NFT has an allocation of $CROWN that they earn when staked (aka locked up) that was determined by their initial rarity.
  • 50% of the total $CROWN supply (125m of 250m) has been dedicated to the staking pool.
  • The staking pool is funded every race season (every 4 weeks) over 26 seasons, which equates to roughly ~4.8M $CROWN tokens added to the pool every 4 weeks. (4,807,692.307692307) to be exact
  • Staked NFT’s earn rewards every 60 seconds, and can be claimed at any time
  • At the end of each season, any staked NFT automatically has their earned rewards sent to the owner’s wallet (the owner doesn’t have to do anything)
  • The remaining tokens that were not earned (due to NFT’s not being staked) are sent to the treasury for marketing / ecosystem purposes (i.e. juicing purses)
  • Immediately after the season auto-claim, a new pool is funded with ~4.8M $CROWN tokens, then rinse and repeat 26 times.

Before asking for assistance please make sure you run through the following…
1. Make sure you have sufficient SOL in the wallet to transact
2. Hard refresh the page (shift-f5 on windows, CMD+shift+R on mac)
3. Revoke permissions in Phantom and re-sign
4. Is your PFP on transaction cooldown? Make sure this is not the case before you attempt to transact again.

>> Are you getting an error 0xbc4 while staking your PFP?
1. Use to send ALL the bugged and unstaked PFPs to a new wallet address
2. Restake with Cardinal and they should all stake.NOTE: This is a fast workaround and can get you unblocked right away. We’re working with metaplex to figure out why they somehow froze a bunch of our NFT’s during the pNFT process.
>> Are you getting an error “Blockhash not found” while staking your PFP?

This is a Solana network issue. If you give it a few seconds and try it again, it should work!
>>> Why can’t I move my PFP?
A: You will not be able to transfer your PFL PFP between wallets once it is staked.

>>>Can I stake from ledger?

A: Yes!>>> Why aren’t my pfp’s showing up as stakeable?

A: Give the site some time to load them up, especially if you have many of them. If they don’t show, check if they are showing up in the counter at the bottom (Stake and Select All)

>>> I unstaked my PFP, why isn’t it showing up as unstaked?

A: You will often need to unstake in two steps. The first unstake will redeem any unclaimed tokens that PFP has earned, the second will return it back to your wallet.

>>> How often do my rewards update?

A: Every 60 seconds

>>> If I stop staking my PFL PFP does it permanently lose potential $CROWN?

A: Yes, all PFL PFPs are on a shared emissions schedule, if they are not staked they are missing out on their rewards window.

>>> My question isn’t answered here – what do I do??
