|Alien Worlds||NFT mining||NFTs||TLM token||Wax blockchain|
Alien Worlds has decided to change the way how a game NFT gets distributed to players. Instead of automatically being sent to the players, miners will now need to claim them manually. This change would safe blockchain resources, as a result not requiring lots of CPU and RAM on the Wax blockchain.
Instead of continuously distributing NFTs on every mining transaction, Alien Worlds will now send the game NFT when players claim it. As a result the platform will have less transactions. This should also be beneficial for players, as they need to stake less WAX for CPU power on the Wax blockchain.
This adjustment comes with one tricky part. The claiming process isn’t as smooth as the game interface itself. Therefore it’s probably useful to follow this small guide:
- Go to the Federation page on Bloks.io
- Login on the top right corner, using your WAX All-access wallet
- Scroll down, you will see a field titled “miner”
- Enter your WAX wallet address here
- Click ‘Submit Transaction’
Below a message will appear stating ‘Success’. However, this doesn’t mean that you actually received NFTs. It just means that you successfully checked whether you have NFTs waiting, and claimed them if they’re there. More questions about this, then it’s probably best to go to the Alien Worlds Zendesk FAQ website.
What is Alien Worlds?
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. The game world offers a full economy where players battle for resources and value. In the coming months they will introduce special missions where players can earn TLM tokens, in addition there will be a competitive mode called Thunderdome.
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. Landowners can also airdrop their own custom NFTs to players.
Once you own quite some TLM, you can stake this on a planet and vote in planetary decisions through their decentralized autonomous organization, or DAO. Players and planets all battle for TLM, resulting in competition and collaboration on different fronts.
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.
