|Land sale||R-Planet||Wax blockchain|
The space exploration game R-Planet will have its second land sale on Thursday April 29th, which consists of 5,000 plots in the BoarVallis region. Only players who’ve been playing the game, crafting items and inventing materials will have the ability to join the sale.
Again R-Planet for use a whitelist for the land sale, and this time it will be even stricter. There will be a preference to players who have made contribution into the preparation for R-Planet colonization. That means that 3,000 active players will be able to buy a mini pack, one per person. Furthermore only 1,000 of the most active players can buy a dual pack. The snapshot has already been taken.
This means that investors who have never played the game, also don’t stand a chance buying land during the land sale. They will have to wait until players sell their lands on the open marketplace. The mini packs will sell for $100 in WAX, while the dual packs go for $200 in WAX. Between each purchase you need to wait 30 minutes, so most likely everybody can only buy one land pack.
Why land in R-Planet?
A land parcel contains one basic elements in their soil, out of four possible options: Wecanite, Waxon, Caponium or Enefterium. By extracting those resources, players will be able to build fighting robots to defend their colonies. These resources are in addition to the ones that have already been part of the game.
Lands in R-Planet come in different rarities. Rarity is determined by the mining power from a plot. For example, 100 mining power is common, 120 uncommon, 140 rare, while 200 mining power for legendary lands will be the most valuable. Players can upgrade their land by combining elements created in the generator.
What is R-Planet?
The story from R-Planet is about finding planets where we can live. Humanity will pick Mars, but this requires research and testing. That’s where the NFT elements come into place. Combining these will allow humanity to discover more elements, and maybe solve the puzzle. Players will be staking NFTs, mining AETHER, buying and trading these basic materials, using them to create something new, and then the cycle continuous.
We’ve already seen the staking mechanism. The basic materials have been sold and will soon come into play. In the near future R-Planet will introduce mining tools to enhance the mining activity, as well as a way to swap fungible tokens.
Ultimately R-Planet: Evacuation is just the first phase of the game. The roadmap for R-Planet goes a lot further. After this first phase will come Colonization, during which there will be a land sale and the construction of buildings. In addition we’ll be mining on Mars, and there will be a gaming element. The third phase will be Conquest, during which players will discover a hostile enemy. There will be a sale of characters, and the construction of robots and vehicles.
