Following the huge success of CryptoKitties, which saw early adopters earn 10000% interest from their cat acquisitions, a whole lot of clones are being released, aiming to capture the good-fortunes of the “crypto collectibles”. Just because cats were a revolution, it doesn’t necessarily mean that a dog, fish or a robot version is going to be the next big hit.
From this, the crypto-gaming market has been steadily evolving, and what can really revolutionise it is the connection of revived and promising HTML5 technology that allows for running a fully featured, graphically-rich game inside any browser with digital wallets like MetaMask or Toshi for controlling game assets stored on the blockchain.
The first of its kind in a new era of online gaming is a city building strategy game ― MegaCryptoPolis that will offer players from all over the world the opportunity to collectively build a unique mega city on the Ethereum blockchain.
Commencing on 21st May 2018, players can start acquiring blocks of land on the decentralized city map, which will then allow them to construct a range of building types, such as: residential, production and commercial structures. Every block of land, along with buildings that are constructed on it, is an ERC-721 cryptо-tоken that can be transferred or traded like any other cryptocurrency on integrated and external marketplaces.
Buildings will then begin to generate influence points, depending on what is built around their neighbourhood. For example, residential buildings near a commercial zone will produce much more points than a building that is close to a manufacturing facility. It’s just like in real life. The value of a property or land block more often than not depends on location.
In its core, MegaCryptoPolis looks like a massively multiplayer on-line Go game ― just without limits.
Every action inside the game requires some taxes that are collected for regional and federal budgets. These are then distributed amongst all players ― depending on their share of total influence points that are produced within a game cycle (24 hours). Players may then withdraw their earnings in the form of Ether every day ― directly to their Ethereum digital wallets.
When someone purchases a spare land block, smart contract raises the price of the surrounding 24 blocks of land. Part of the purchase price is then distributed amongst block owners in the 5×5 field.
The initial cost for a single block will start from 0.015 ETH, with all blocks being hardcoded to rise up to 7.5 ETH – once all neighboring blocks are sold. This means that buying the block of land inside of a 5×5 field may double your return of Ether after a number of blocks sold around.
It is also important to note that some blocks may possess an Ore – the most important resource inside of the game. Owning a block that supplies Ore may produce you a greater amount of influence points without even having a building on it.
Players can even acquire whole districts those give a share of the profits from all blocks within it. Districts are basically the older and larger siblings of blocks that feature on the MegaCryptoPolis game map. The right to own a district is initially sold during an auction ― a district can then be traded freely like any other game asset. District owners have the right to set the price of all blocks in their district’s region, as well as receiving part of the profits that are collected from all land block sales within their district.
MegaCryptoPolis White Book has a well mapped out and detailed description of all game aspects and rules, including all types of buildings and dependencies – even the maths formula to help make all in-game transactions easy to understand. We highly recommended reading this through.
There is also a Bounty Campaign launched that is the only way to get an exclusive land block on the Bounty Island. Blocks will be distributed randomly amongst all registered users prior to the game starting. All participants involved to help spread the word via social media will increase their chance of receiving rare and valuable crypto-land-tokens during the Bounty Campaign.
