Alien Worlds to Introduce NFT Upgrading Soon

The strategic exploration game Alien Worlds will soon allow players to start upgrading their digital assets and improve their quality. They call this system ‘shining’. Game studio Dacoco didn’t announce an official date yet, but retweeted someone else’s tweet suggesting a launch by the end of this month.

There’s a cost associated with upgrading NFTs in Alien Worlds. Shining allows users to send multiple identical digital assets alongside some Trilium, and then receive one digital asset with ‘higher shininess’. The smart contract burns the Trilium used for that action.

Digital assets with a higher shininess are supposedly more valuable, and useful. Shininess supposedly gives a boost to the in-game performance of an asset. For example, an upgraded tool will have higher NFT luck or a lower multiplier. However, whether the upgrade is randomly generated or set in stone, remains to be seen.

Activity in Alien Worlds

At the moment there are plenty of gamers playing Alien Worlds. In the past seven days almost one thousand players have traded 32 thousand dollars of digital assets. The average price for these tools is between 3 and 4 dollars. With 260 thousand NFTs on the market, Alien Worlds is one of the most active games of this moment. After, of course, the hype surrounding NBA Top Shot.

Yesterday more than 3700 users played Alien Worlds, mining TLM and in search for non-fungible tokens. While the weekly number of active users increased 57 percent to 4780 players, according to data from DappRadar. These gamers were good for more than 812 thousand transactions in a week, that’s almost 20 transactions per person.

The increased activity goes hand-in-hand with a new NFT collaboration. Miners in Alien Worlds will be able to find two special Ultra Rare Horrors cards through NFT drops. The Celestial Terror is an avatar, while the Alien Bat is a minion. Mint numbers will be limited to approximately 100 each. 

What is Alien Worlds?

Don’t confuse this game with the newly launched Netflix series, because they have nothing in common. Alien Worlds is an exploration and mining game in which players can own land, use tools and weapons, customize their avatars, own rare artifacts and have minions to use in battles.

Players in this game world earn Trilium (TLM). This is a cryptocurrency token that bridges the Wax and Ethereum blockchain, allowing the economies of both chains to merge into one. Players earn TLM through mining, and can spend the tokens on betters tools and weapons.

Ultimately Alien Worlds needs to become a 3D game where avatars roam planets using tools to mine Trilium. Through terraforming, players should even be able to create events and parties on their own lands. There’s also a PVP element to the game, titled the Thunderdome.
