Blockchain-based games promise many benefits that aren’t available in traditional video games, providing tangible monetary value to gamers and allowing them to earn playing titles they enjoy. Alien Worlds has established itself as one of the preeminent blockchain games on the market, offering its users the ability to access “DAOs in Space” and compete with NFTs and gain rewards.
The combination of fun and making money through Trilium, Alien Worlds’ native currency, has driven users to the game and catapulted Alien Worlds to the number one ranked decentralized game by user base (based on daily active unique wallets). It has become so popular that Alien Worlds is now rated the fifth largest overall decentralized application (dApp) on the market.
Trilium Is Driving the Alien Worlds Ecosystem and Enriching Gamers
Alien Worlds created a new planetary metaverse, tokenizing every aspect. In-game items are represented as non-fungible tokens (NFTs), making them uniquely identifiable from one another, unlike common cryptocurrencies such as BTC or ETH. This method enables users to determine the value of all items through gameplay and financial analysis. When people put in work to obtain an item, they can determine its value through factors such as the cost of obtaining it, the amount of time spent, the level required, and more.
Suppose the gamer decides they no longer want the item or would like to exchange it for something else. In that case, they can take it to the WAX open market, a digital asset exchange that empowers buyers and sellers by providing item exchange capabilities. A player can cash out at any time and earn money from any item.
The heart of the Alien Worlds economy runs on Trilium, the in-game currency. There is an entire layer of commercial activity going on within Alien Worlds, with Trilium serving as the reserve currency through which every transaction flows. There are different ways for users to earn Trillium, such as farming Trillium and NFTs within in-game worlds. Players can do this by participating in mining or fighting battles, owning land in the metaverse, and charging other rental commissions. Individual planets have their own sovereignty, with the option to pay users who stake with them, create new NFTs, or participate in the planetary ecosystem.
A Vibrant In-Game Economy
Not only does Alien Worlds provide its users with hours of entertainment, but it can also prove lucrative. On average, Alien Worlds players are making about $60 per month, a pretty penny for playing games. If a gamer has the right tools, they can make $300 or more a month, which many currently are. At the very top of the spectrum is where players can make some serious earnings, with the top players pulling in about $35,000 per month.
Currently hosting over 13,000 players and close to 20 million in-game transactions, Alien Worlds is proving to be one of the most popular new games in the blockchain space. This popularity is reflected in the price of ‘packs’, or baskets of in-game usable collectibles that gamers can purchase to boost their abilities and earning potential. Many NFT and land packs have already seen enormous price increases, with some experiencing five to ten times price growth and higher. These packs distribute items divided into six different rarity categories, with the scarcest items being some of the most valuable. In-game explorers can also earn NFT or land packs by playing, another reason why Alien Worlds has continued to add to its user base.
Alien Worlds is scaling up, with it looking like 20 million in-game transactions is just the tip of the iceberg. Offering more options to users through individual planetary operations, there will be more ways to play with friends and earn within the gaming universe. Blockchain has allowed gamers to capitalize on their hobbies, ushering in a world where people of all skill levels can monetize their hobbies.
