Alien Worlds is a smart-contract-based decentralized metaverse that combines NFT card-based strategy with DeFi farming. A game engineering studio has partnered with Alien Worlds to create the metaversal UI, which calls blockchain commands seamlessly so that anyone can explore, earn, battle, and stake in Alien Worlds.
Alien Worlds is the only NFT DeFi project that uses both Ethereum and WAX. Using NFT land and tools, gamers farm the ERC-20 token Trilium. Players stake ERC-20 Trilium tokens on planets, each of which is a DAC with dedicated leadership, in order to gain gameplay advantages in mining and fighting.
Game players were able to secure Launch Packs at a range of prices during Alien Worlds’ first Dutch NFT auction on Oct. 10, 2020. Auctions for Launch Packs were scheduled to run for 24 hours, but they sold out well in advance.
Buyers weighed in on purchase strategies in the lively Alien Worlds Telegram channel during the auction and are eagerly anticipating the four additional Alien Worlds NFT pack sales that will take place this autumn. First mints, which are ultra-rare and sought after by NFT collectors, were acquired at the opening Dutch auction prices. Throughout the auction, as prices decreased, participants became more determined to secure Alien Worlds NFT cards with better stats, which make mining and fighting within the metaverse more profitable and which can later be “shined” for even greater gameplay efficiency.
Community to Participate in Pack sales & NFT Auction – Schedule Here
The upcoming NFT auction schedule will be:
- Oct. 23: Rare Pack Sale – 4,000 packs with greater probabilities of receiving Rare-type cards and some special cards reserved for this sale.
- Nov. 6: Legendary Pack Sale – 3,000 packs with greater probabilities of receiving Legendary-type cards.
- Nov. 20: eosDAC Pack Sale – Sale for eosDAC tokens with bonus probabilities.
- Dec. 4: Special Land Pack Sale – The only chance to obtain Land NFTs.
Auctions on the Alien Worlds Sales website offer parallel supply on Ethereum and WAX. NFT holders from Ethereum communities including Decentraland, Gods Unchained, Sandbox, RARI, and Axie, as well as WAX-based NFT communities participate in tandem. During the upcoming auction series, Alien Worlds NFTs will be available, but the fungible Trilium token will only be obtained in-game. Michael Yeates, co-founder of Alien Worlds and lead blockchain engineer, invented the first cross-chain Ethereum-WAX methodology that allows the fungible Trilium token to be recorded and transacted simultaneously across both blockchains.
“The success of Alien Worlds’ first auction tells me our community understands how NFTs complement DeFi so synergistically,” said Alien Worlds co-founder Rob Allen. “People love NFTs because they are digital items you can use in gameplay and collect. People love DeFi because it’s an emerging application of blockchain through which we find sources of potential earnings and arrange those directly with peers. Within Alien Worlds there’s a home for both, because our project relies on both NFTs and the decentralized autonomous community or DAC structure, which allows users to decide how earnings are apportioned.”
Since Ethereum is the birthplace of DeFi, and WAX is the “king of NFTs,” Alien Worlds sits at the crossroads of these blockchain advancements as the first and only cross-denominational project. Alien Worlds is reaching out to highly invested Ethereum NFT enthusiasts in order to strengthen this partnership. Promo Packs of NFTs have been distributed to the top 6,400 NFT holders in Decentraland, RARI, Gods Unchained, Sandbox, and Axie.
Co-Founder, Sarojini McKenna calls Alien Planets “Truly Decentralized”
“We’re excited to see how the community evolves this project, particularly in terms of ‘planets,’” said co-founder Sarojini McKenna. “Users choose where to stake their Trilium, and a planet with more Trilium staked to it will receive more rewards, which that planet can decide how to use – including paying its backers. The fact that each planet is its own DAC makes this truly decentralized, which we know from experience leads to an abundance of energy and creativity; wonderful things you never could have foreseen start happening.”
Alien Worlds is set in a future where some Earthlings have discovered a way to escape the raging pandemics on Earth through a wormhole revealed to them by an advanced alien race that sent messages through Bitcoin mining algorithms. Everything in the Alien Worlds metaverse was tokenized to create a fairer economy.
Alien Worlds’ “Star Route,” outlined on its website, includes the launch of the beta Unity user interface, the opening of the “shining” functionality, where NFTs can be combined to create rarer items, and the beginning of battling using NFT weapons and minions in the Thunder Dome. We will continue to develop the metaversal narrative arc, sometimes prompted by guidance from an Ancient Alien AI.
