  1. Earning Boons
  2. Spending Boons
Boons are the BotB currency system, exchangeable for goods and services from both BotB and it's BotBrs.

There are 100 nubs in a boon.
b1 = 100n

Boons can also be notated as:
b741.52 (741 boons and 52 nubs)

Here are the current exchange rates for the boon:
b1 = 532.44 USD
b1 = 683.70 CAD
b1 = 452.65 EUR
b1 = 396.72 GBP
b1 = 58,835 JPY

...except these values are all MADE UP (but in proportion)!. You cannot actually exchange boons for real money, unfortunately (if we could, everyone here would probably be millionaires).

Earning Boons

BotB awards boons to BotBrs when their submitted content gets viewed/played/donloaded by other BotBrs. The more a BotBr contributes to BotB the higher their income will become.

Bonus for Entry donloads/plays/views
BotB pays out royalties for BotBr content every time an Entry is donloaded.

payout = (25 + half of donloader's INF) nubs
Guest donloads = 25n
BotBr with 36 INF = 43n

Also sometimes Botbrs who are in love with you might give you some boon gifts ;) ;) ;)

Bonus for Battle Hostings
See Hostist (class) for more info

Spending Boons

- BULLETINS cost b25 and displayed on front page.
- PALETTE cost b10.
- LYCEUM ARTICLE cost b33.
- BIT IN DETROIT costs b0 for first one, +b7 for every subsequent sample (ie: 8th bit costs b63 which would mean you spent a total of b245)
- BEGASTING A COMPO requires a deposit of many boons (b750), (but if more than 3 people participate, you can get the deposit back :) ).
- Donating boons to other users

The following don't exist yet but would be more ways to spend boons:
- Aura reset (green center).
- Bit power-ups for battle.

Clans should be able to purchase boons via donations.
However, boons gain via donations should have a set limit per designated amount of time (every 3 months, 6 months or a year). That way no clan will be able to accumulate more boons due to one member having an excessive amount of real money.
Everyone should have the same opportunities to gain boons.
