Flare Network is now the owner of the Citadel of the Moon in the online role playing game Mirandus, and with the deeds in their pockets they will bring the GALA token to their layer-2 solution. Gala Games announced the deal in a blog post, and emphasized that the supply of the GALA token won’t change.
GALA is an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum blockchain, in order to bring the token to the Flare Network, it will be bridge. That means that users can burn or lock tokens on Ethereum, and will then receive Flare-based GALA. To add some extra sauce to this partnership, it’s likely that NFTs backed by Flare Network will provide a special buff in the Citadel of the Moon.
In recent months Gala Games has been building its network. Their ecosystem originally launched on the Ethereum blockchain, and they recently partnered with both Flare Network and Binance Smart Chain. Considering that Polyient Games, another partner from Gala, also owns a citadel, don’t be surprised if Binance will grab one as well. So far three out of five citadels have been claimed.
What is Mirandus?
When Mirandus releases, it will give players a first-person perspective as they venture into the world. Everything in the game world is owned by players, communities or organizations, ranging from the in-game banks to the shops, farms and blacksmiths. There will be a thriving in-game economy, and everybody has their part of play. Mirandus is an open-world online role playing game in which player actions influence the game world.
Adventurers will need food, armor repairs and some potions before they go on their next adventure. The blacksmith will need wood from the woodcutter to make a hilt, while the butcher needs meat from the farmer. There are many production lines and players can enjoy being a farmer, an adventurer, a trader or perhaps a bard.
Having a keep or some other base close to a dungeon entrance, will provide all kinds of opportunities for trade. Players can buy land tiles with certain functionalities and drop these anywhere in the game world. Other players could open a shop in that village, and pay rent to the mayor. All ownership over digital assets inside Mirandus is stored on the blockchain. Currently Mirandus supports Ethereum, Polygon, Binance Smart Chain and Flare Network.
When Mirandus launches there will be five citadels. These give the owner the right to create and lead their own faction, charge taxes on trade and so on. Owning a piece of land provides a safe haven for other players, and potentially a way to make money. However, also without land you can earn, as shops will need wood, meat, and other items.
