The space mining game Cometh has brought staking MUST tokens and NFT farming to the Polygon blockchain. The v2 update now completely exists on the Polygon blockchain, which means it’s almost free to use. Above everything, the function is accessible to everybody.
Cometh already offered NFT farming on Ethereum, but that feature was a bit inaccessible for many because of the high gas fees. From this point forward there will be a main tube, where old and new users can stake big amounts of MUST to get access to limited edition, premium stuff. However, Cometh now also introduced ‘capped’ tubes, which players with smaller amounts of MUST can stake and regularly collect ships and items. This is obviously where Polygon comes into play, as these sidechain do very well in serving users with smaller wallets.
In addition it’s good to know that players can now use items in the game. This items provide a one-time advantage, but the developers behind Cometh are still working this out a bit. In addition each partnership with third-parties projects and companies, will get their own tube. This will allow players to fine-tune their strategy for their MUST staking distribution.
Cometh looks a lot like a game, but under the hood it’s a DeFi product where players can earn MUST and DUST tokens. They also built their own bridge between Ethereum and Polygon. Read more about bridging tokens here.
What is Cometh?
Cometh is a space game, but above all it’s gamified DeFi product. They describe themselves as a ‘DeFi powered game with yield generating NFT’. Active players can mine MUST tokens using their NFT spaceships. A share of every NFT purchase goes directly in the MUST pools for the game. That way Cometh really is a mix from a game and a DeFi product.
No matter whether you look at Cometh from an investment or gaming perspective, the promise is quite cool. You control a spaceship, and you need to position it to mine tokens. Navigating the galaxy can be done by ‘linking up’ with other spaceships. When other players use your spaceship, you earn MUST. The good thing about the game is that it runs entirely on a layer2 solution, Polygon blockchain to be precise. So there won’t be any crazy gas fees.
Recently Cometh already introduced multiple solar systems. That way the game can deal with the influx of new players into their DeFi ecosystem. In addition they introduced the ability to drop a rover onto an asteroid for extra bonus drops.
