Gamers who own a premium vehicles in the online action game War Riders, will also get passive income thanks to garage ownership. Cartified Inc will take a blockchain snapshot at 5PM UTC on October 21st to determine who gets which amount of ownership tokens. Player-owned garages have been a decision by the community, according to the announcement blog post.
Players can already find these so-called OG garages in the wastelands of War Riders, but they have all kinds of restrictions. By giving players ownership over the garages, Cartified wants to open up the use of these garages. Players will get ownership tokens, which will give a percentage of ownership over the garage. The more vehicles a person has, the more tokens they will get. The garage will allow owners to earn passive income on the in-game BZN cryptocurrency.
Players who own one of more premium vehicles need to make sure they have logged in to the game before the snapshot. Cartified has the game for download on their website. Players who didn’t login, will not get ownership tokens. These tokens can’t be transferred and are tied to the player’s account. Ownership is likely to be tokenized in the near future.
It’s very possible that some garages have higher entrance fees. These pricing decisions will be made by the owners. However, players who enjoy the world of War Riders, don’t need to pay every time they park their vehicle. They can always find a free spot to park their vehicles in the Central Garage.
Ownership over virtual businesses
Thanks to the power of the blockchain, it’s possible to identity a gamer as the sole individual over a certain asset. This asset can be a vehicle or a sword, but also a piece of land or a garage. Generation passive income through ownership is something we’re seeing in multiple blockchain-powered games.
League of Kingdoms does this by giving ten percent of all income to landowners. In addition Garage Studios allows players to put their space ships up for rent in Dissolution. In the upcoming game Mirandus players can own a tavern or a castle, which provides protection and offers services to visitors. This would be another example of passive income through digital ownership.
What is War Riders?
War Riders is a vehicular massively multiplayer online action game. In this game players own their own vehicle, which they can expand by acquiring resources. They can even own an entire army of vehicles. However, the world of War Riders is harsh. The wastelands don’t pity the weak. Factions battle for control over resources, and competitive gameplay is at the core of this game.
Players use their vehicle to mine Benzene (BZN) or steal it from other players. Become the most powerful and wealthy army by expanding your garage locations, buying better weapons, and killing for influence. Offer protection to other players and earn money.
War Riders seeks to be fully transparent about the token economics. No BZN tokens will be offered for sale. Instead, the majority of the tokens will be released during the in-game mining process. The more vehicles a player owns, the more he earns. Benzene’s pool will eventually deflate. Every time a player buys something with BZN from the marketplace, 30% of tokens used in the transaction will burn. the rest will go back to the mining pool.
