R-Planet will introduce a new way to mine AETHER tokens on the Wax blockchain, as they will introducing mining pools. Originally they allowed users to stake assets from many collections, and earn AETHER based on the NFTs they had. However, now each project will have its own mining pool with a set amount of AETHER designated to it.
Basically the developers got tired of adjusting the mining rates for each NFT collection or asset. Therefore they now introduce mining pools with a set amount of AETHER per pool per hour. This gets automatically distributed between all participants based on their share in the pool.
As a result the amount someone earns for their NFTs isn’t a fixed rate anymore. It’s all about the total amount of all staked NFTs, and your participation in the pool. Finding a pool will little activity, could proof to be fruitful. On Alcor Exchange AETHER can be traded against several currencies including WAX.
Buy AETHER mining tools
Gamers who are interested in R-Planet and want to acquire more AETHER, can also join the upcoming Mining Rig NFT sale. On Saturday May 22nd at 4PM UTC they will launch the $30 Mini Pack of Mining Tools, which contains six NFTs. These tools will get users at least 1,000 AETHER per hour.
On hour later there will be a second sale. For $120, paid in WAX, gamers can buy the Mega Pack of Mining Tools. There will only be 2,250 of these, starting from May 22nd at 5PM. That’s one hour after the first sale. These packs guarantee you 4,000 AETHER per hour at minimum.
Currently one AETHER is 0.0014 WAXP. Therefore 1,000 AETHER makes 1,4 WAXP. At the time of writing, WAXP is $0,13, which means you’d earn 4.358 WAXP per day, or $0,59. So it would take you less than 2 month to earn your money back on a Mini Pack. And this is passive income, as you only need to stake your NFTs.
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.
