NFTCraft is cementing itself as a top new platform for digitizing video games on the blockchain. It is the first play-to-earn metaverse with NFT Elements involved.
NFTCraft is a new play-to-earn game on the Polygon blockchain. However, a version for the Binance Smart chain and the project’s own sidechain is under development. Joining Twitter in September of this year, they have since amassed over 5,000 followers on the platform. Their game is 3D and will offer the options of buying land in ‘MainCity’, as well as the construction of custom NFTs in the style of art objects and other structures.
The story around the game, as on the project’s website is: “In the distant future, the Galaxy Dwarf civilization found an asteroid of pure neo-gold. They wanted to possess the asteroid and began to think over a plan to capture it. A council of the wisest Galaxy Dwarf was convened. During which the entire civilization agreed to build a huge rocket capable of reaching an asteroid and successfully returning back with a load of neo-gold. For decades, the entire planet has been building a rocket, thinking through flight navigation and designing a powerful engine. The best minds have worked on the engine for a rocket capable of reaching an asteroid in a matter of seconds and delivering a million cubic meters of neo-gold to its home planet.” You can read the remainder of the story here.
The main idea of the game and hopes for players is to earn the most amount of the game’s governance token, Radiant ($RAD). At the start, you choose the NFT dwarf and the islands that it will explore. ETH rewards are distributed at the end of the main game cycle. The more Radiant a player collects, the larger the reward at the end of the game. Features are constantly being added,
Play-to-earn games have been a big topic in the crypto space. They have risen in popularity over time, particularly Axie Infinity, which is without a doubt the largest. The idea of these games is to award players, through the game’s cryptocurrency token, for simply going through the game and playing. Certainly, this idea has been well received by gamers, as they would be playing a game anyway. Now they can earn by doing what they love to do. Together with Axie Infinity, CoinMarketCap has classed Decentraland and The Sandbox as the next biggest play-to-earn tokens. All play-to-earn tokens have risen majorly in value since Meta, formerly Facebook, announced their major move into the metaverse. What’s more, their move could involve a form of play-to-earn implemented, which would increase the userbase.
