The battle arena game Hodl God now introduced play-to-earn mechanics that lets players pick up NFTs and raffle tickets from the battlefield. However, once these are picked up, the carrier becomes a target. Only the last man standing will be able to take the NFT and claim it.
With this new NFT reward feature, Hodl God wants to position itself as a competitive, player-versus-player play-to-earn game. However, these NFT rewards won’t appear in every battle. There’s a 30% chance that a silver key will drop, which is an NFT raffle ticket. In addition there’s a 10% chance a golden bar will appear, which is a Play to Earn Badge NFT with a $20 value. However, there’s one trick to make sure you can take the NFT home when you pick it up, and that’s by carrying an Immortal Bounty Contract.
The Play to Earn Badge NFT will have a role to play in the wider ecosystem of Hodl God. Just like the Hodl God NFTs, players can stake these assets and earn VOID tokens. In turn VOID tokens can be used in the game, of course.
In terms of earning NFTs, there’s more to come. Soon Hodl God will introduce a new Immortal Gear set. Players need to find four shards: a main-hand melee weapon, an off-hand melee weapon, a bow, and of course armor. To earn this set, players need to turn these four shards into a bounty contract, and complete the quests that belong to that specific bounty.
What is Hodl God?
In Hodl God players can either compete in a 50-player battle royale, in which the last man standing is the ultimate winner. The other option is to dive into the crypto bounty mode, allowing players to earn crypto tokens and very rare cosmetic gear that can be traded on an open marketplace.
Players who have VOID tokens in their wallet, are able to play the crypto bounty mode for free. Those who don’t, will need to pay a one dollar fee in order to compete for prizes. “We are leveraging the blockchain and creating a new type of F2P business model”, the studio said.
These VOID tokens can be bought or sold using Bancor, Paypal or Coinbase. This makes them very accessible for all kinds of players. VOID can be converted into game credits, or users can stake it for passive income. VOID whales can also lend their tokens to other players, which gives them 50 percent of the crypto earnings. However, in-game assets always go to the player.
