LandRocker, a pioneering play-to-earn Web3 game focused on space exploration, has launched its token sale following a previous successful seed raise of $1.75 million. Starting from November 27, participants can join the sale via the official Landrocker website.
LandRocker offers a unique Web3 gameplay experience where players travel through intergalactic space on mining missions to uncover resources such as NFTs, crypto tokens, and materials to craft new mining rovers and planets. The innovative twist is that blockchain is the engine driving the LandRocker reward system. The game uses smart contracts to introduce randomly-hidden rewards, so the gameplay is unpredictable even to the game’s developers. Since all rewards are distributed and validated via blockchain, it’s fully transparent and provably fair.
In a press release accompanying the token sale launch announcement, Erik Tolstoy, Chief Business Development Officer of LandRocker, states: “As a leading Play-to-Earn platform, LandRocker addresses market challenges with its Blockchain Validation System, ensuring secure, untraceable rewards. This sale offers a chance to join a revolution in cryptocurrencies and NFTs, highlighting our commitment to industry innovation.”
The game is available in two versions – an immersive 3D universe played on a downloadable platform and a streamlined Web (2D) version, with various missions and game modes available. Players can join free of charge with a basic non-NFT space rover but can elevate their reward potential with an upgraded paid NFT rover with a higher mining efficiency. The game can also be monetized through trading assets and staking the native LRT token.
The LRT token sale is now open for participation via crypto or traditional payment cards. By joining the sale, participants will also be entered into a “Bitcoin Hunt” offering the opportunity to win a whole BTC for one lucky winner.
Warming Market Signals?
The Q3 “State of Blockchain Gaming” report recently issued by DappRadar highlights the difficult funding environment for blockchain games in 2023, given the ongoing bearish market sentiments. However, LandRocker has bucked the challenging conditions to secure $1.75 million from investors in funding during a previous seed round, demonstrating that projects with credible fundamentals based on a use case can still give confidence to investors. Furthermore, the game has established a player base of 63,000 users who have completed over 170,000 mining missions to date, so the project team has established a sound basis for success in the token sale.
LandRocker’s progress isn’t the only sign that conditions could be thawing for Web3 gaming. Earlier this month, AAA gaming studio Ubisoft announced that its Strategic Innovation Lab would be working with leading blockchain gaming firm Immutable to develop Web3 games. This week, blockchain game Illuvium is set to list on the Epic Games Store, alongside AAA titles like Fortnite, one of the first to gain access to such a large mainstream audience following a determined effort by the project to become listed.
